37. You tell me how to reach "Joe and Jane Churchy' while the
President preens over his religious objections to equality? He is arguing on the side of Joe and Jane, and that coupled with this insistence from the straights that gay people hold responsibility to educate your communities even as 'our' politicians feed their ignorance makes for an impossible scenario, in which straights keep vomiting dogmatic rhetoric and somehow, we are supposed to argue with both Obama and Bachmann, without any help form the straights and in fact, tons of nasty 'God in the mix, they are not Sanctified' bullshit from 'our side'.
It gets old. But step one is honesty: as long as the religious objections keep coming from Democrats, it is unfair to say shit like this:
'Democrats don't try to take God's place by legislating discrimination into the Constitution in God's name.'
Why is it unfair? Because Democrats do legislate, and they do rave about what they claim God tells them to do and not do. It is steaming bullshit to claim otherwise, bullshit posted so that straights can feel good about themselves, in spite of the truth of the matter.
