Is anyone else getting tired of parsing words and dissecting “legal opinions” to find permission to discriminate with dignity? I mean, surely we must be told what to think and why by our betters, right? To discriminate between right and wrong, good and bad, or sincere and hypocritical, is something that should only be left to the experts. Otherwise, all of us flyover-country rednecks will surely fail the liberal (and eRepub) litmus test. Which should earn us certain condemnation that would even include — to teach us a lesson — jail time, at a minimum.
I say, “Pfft!” to it all.
Maybe, aside from my religion and all, I just think two people of the same sex trying to have sex and pretend they can marry is icky. Super icky. And maybe this feeling is actually God-given and normal, meant to be a sort of internal-red-flag warning signal that would be very foolish to ignore.
But then, I am just a common woman. With common sense.
Let’s see. How does the first amendment go, again?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This is America. I will always think SSM is icky. That is my prerogative.
The Watercooler is always an open thread.
