“So please don’t tell me that the bigotry that overturns or denies protections and equal rights to gays and lesbians in places like California and Maine doesn’t affect me. It does. And please don’t tell me how you really do love your gay friends, but you think that ‘marriage is between one man and one woman,’ because as far as I’m concerned, that isn’t love. I’ve never yet been told of one single incident in which a minister or priest or pastor was forced to marry any couple that he or she didn’t feel comfortable marrying. This isn’t about religion. This is about civil law, and treating all people with equality and dignity.”
Becky is so much more eloquent than me when it comes to expressing conviction while gripped by a righteous, blinding rage. And her sentiments are probably more effective than what I would say, which is this: if anyone ever comes between me and mine, I’ll kill them.
And no. that is not a metaphor. For anything.
