While the Maryland Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony today from the advocates and opponates of same-sex marriage, one testimony of a 14 year old girl stands out. Sarah Crank testified opposing same-sex marriage. Her testimony:
“I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender.”
“They have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on.”
“People have the choice to be gay, but I don’t want to be affected by their choice. People say they were just born that way, but I’ve met really nice adults who did change.”
She added, “….would be the best birthday present ever if you would vote no on gay marriage.”
“It’s rather scary to think that when I grow up the legislature or the court can change the definition of any word they want,”
“If they could change the definition of marriage then they could change the definition of any word.”
It important to mention that Sarah is home schooled. So obviously what she said is the direct reflection of what kind of parents she has. No points for guessing they are Bible thumping bigots and they are doing a stupendous job of raising a bigoted bitch.
Wonder what kind of people she hangs out with where there are so many “reformed” LGBT people she has already met at such an early age? She has been brainwashed no doubt… I can’t wait for her to start college.
Monday evening Gov. Martin O’Malley introduced a bill which would legalize same-sex marriage if passed.
A similar bill was pushed through and failed last year at the House of Delegates. This time round, the language has been tweeked to explicitely exclude religious organizations and groups from having to perform a same-sex marriage if they are not inclined to.
To pass this bill, it needs 71 votes and last year it garnerd only 59. Here’s hoping the revised language will attract the required votes to pass the bill. Gov. O’Malley wants to follow the footsteps of Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York and lead a more aggressive campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in the 2012 legislative session.
If it does, then the State of Maryland would be the 8th state to allow same-sex marriage.
28th Jan is Pride in Mumbai and in celebration to that Mumbai saw its first ever gay flash mob in the at Marine Drive. Its not only Mumbai’s first but it happened to India’s and Asia’s first gay flash mob.
Mumbai has done it agian. In India people say, what Mumbai things today, rest of India thinks tomorrow. Here what the city did, the rest of Asia hasn’t thought about it yet.
This a bold effort which was a huge success and hopefully other cities will follow the example and have one of their own. At a time when Indian Health Minister proved to be how ignorant, bigoted and uneducated a person can be when it comes to LGBT issues in his country, these awarenesses are even more necessary than before.
Here’s wishing Mumbai a Happy Pride on the 28th. Hope its as huge a success as their Flash Mob.
On Monday, the 25th senator to add her support in favour for SSM is Sen. Margaret Haugen. The house has enough support and Gov. Chris Gregorie has endorsed it making Washington the 7th State to legalize same-sex marriage.
Ms. Haugen stated,“I know this announcement makes me the so-called 25th vote, the vote that ensures passage.” She took her time “to reconcile my religious beliefs with my beliefs as an American, as a legislator, and as a wife and mother who cannot deny to others the joys and benefits I enjoy. This is the right vote and it is the vote I will cast when this measure comes to the floor.”
I just help but wish I was a fly right now and was inside the office of Brian S. Brown of National Organization for Marriage and see his reaction to this bit of news.
Can’t adore/love this man enough. Dan Savage has this obsession with Rick Santorum the same way I had mine with Michele Bachmann. Now she is no more. I need a new hobby.
Dan is so funny but smart at the same time.
Listen to his interview with Kieth Olbermann and have a good chuckle.
While George Michael was hospitalized in Austria with a sever case of pneumonia, Christians for Moral America urged other fellow christians to pray for his death. They even claimed that his illness was actually AIDS posting on twitter that, ” Apparently George Michael has AIDS. Figures since he’s a homosexual and it goes with the territory. Another sodomite bites the dust?” Another twitter id @godswordislaw (incidentally he was following me thinking I was a female, and he initially was more anti-woman than anti-gay. When he learnt I was male, he stopped his offensive tweets towards me and the fact that I was gay didn’t really matter to him at that time. Satisfied that I was male, he unfollowed me) wrote, “Pray for George Michael’s demise. He has chosen a satanic lifestyle and must meet an appropriate end.”
The Christians for Moral America wrote on its blog “It’s almost symbolic that just after the 20th anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death from AIDS that another famous homosexual would succumb to this disease. We pray that George Michael has found salvation through Christ in his last days otherwise he will pay for his unrepentant lifestyle in hell.”
To all this Michael took to twitter and wrote,” Did you know that while I was fighting for my life in Austria there were a bunch of those lovely American ‘Christian’ organisations, who call themselves “Christians for a Moral America”,who were actually taking the time to pray for me to die… How very sweet of them, considering how busy they must be on the whole.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know for a fact that many devout christians, such as the ones I work rest and play with on a daily basis, are truly wonderful, kind hearted men and women who take the best parts of that religion and live admirable, generous and loving lives.
But In my opinion, and i think made evident by those who prayed for my death, there are others who use their twisted interpretations of ancient scriptures as a pathetic excuse to be…….wait for it, wait for it…….! Totally fucked up cocksucking bastards.”
Love you, love you, love you from those last few words. Thats the language these people understand.
Finally Crazy Eyes drops out (stops running) of the presidential campaign of 2012. She had the lowest number of votes among the republican candidates in Iowa yesterday.
Frothy Mix, who almost won was beaten by Romney by about 88 votes. They were neck to neck.
Michele Bachmann‘s senseless speech (ramble) is makes you wonder how she is even working in congress. She sounds uneducated, primitive, confused woman who should not be anywhere near politics. She should help her wife bake cookies for their kids. Her speach was littered with “socialism” 4 times and Obama 14 times.
The good thing…she misunderstood what God told her, but atleast she understood correctly what the people of IOWA wanted her to know. “GO AWAY.”
“Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice,” Bachmann said, “so I have decided to stand aside.” Finally some sensible talk from her
Sorry could not embed the video of her declaration of ending her campaign.
Maybe now she would be able to invest more time in trying to turn her husband (Lady Bird) Bachmann straight. That man is so far in the closet, he has reached Narnia.
