Bush decrees Protect trad. Marriage wk oct 12-18: near Matt Shepard Death
Edited on Mon Oct-06-03 11:30 PM by La_Serpiente
In his latest display of pandering to his base, President Bush has declared the week of Oct. 12-18 protect traditional marriage week. It starts the day after of National Coming Out Day and is near the anniversary of when Matt Shepard died, which was on Oct. 8th.

2. Just when I think he can't possibly get any lower ...
he pulls something like this. He always goes out of his way to promote bigotry at a time and place that will hurt and offend as many people as possible. The man is sadistic. :mad:


By the way ... what exactly is he "protecting" marriage from? Does he think that if a gay couple gets married, all straight couples are going to burn their marriage licenses? :eyes:

"Oh no, honey! Mike and James got married so that means our marriage is meaningless!" :silly:

3. Maybe he's protecting marriage from terra-ists
There's only so many Saturdays in June and we must keep them open so that only the right kind of people can have June weddings.

/sarcasm
