Gods damn it...

According to this website, the national senate's voting on the federal "straight marriage only" amendment next Friday.

Please consider going to this website and sending your congressman a little note of encouragement against this damned thing--particularly if you live outside Texas, where your state isn't dominated by republiclones :(

This has gone up to a vote before, and been shot down before, getting an amendment passed is way the hell challenging, but if it somehow gets to a vote I've learned never to question the force of a smug and ignorant majority steered by a vocal and immoral minority.

Growl.

Yeah in Texas it does no good. I have written our morons time and time again and all I get are form letters that thank me for my support of banning gays and loving Jesus. :P

Thanks!! I'm almost certain it's from Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland, but I've never seen that. Own it, yes, watched it, no :)

I posted this comment on my LJ on this same topic, and I just have to share it here:

The fundies are Charlie Brown and Rove is Lucy with the football.

The vote is expceted to fail again. Expect this one to hit the floor every election year for some time. It's not going up to pass, it's going up so republican candidates can scream "THE INCUMBENT HATES MARRIAGE AND WANTS TO DESTROY IT!" in their campaign -- just like they did two years ago.
