    I still can't believe the immense depth of ignorance and sheer zaniness at the root of those comments.

    In the leadup to the arguments, I was harboring the hope that Roberts might be more favorably disposed toward understanding the importance of equality explicitly mandated by the constitution.

    The sense that this court is so timidly approaching the issue is truly stunning.

    But the REAL tragedy would be if we let us be stunned by all this. We are making a huge mistake if we put our faith and trust in this Cabbage Patch Court and not redouble our efforts at the local level.

    In spite of all the talk about laws and rights there is one simple way to obtain gay marriage, and that's to simply DO IT.

    Whether you live in New York, California, Alabama or Georgia...if you are in a committed same sex relationship refer to yourselves as MARRIED. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

    Make others prove that you're NOT.

    Words are not defined by courts, or laws, or rights, but by USAGE. Use the word. It's a GOOD word. And we have every right to it!

    What separates us, divides us, and diminishes the human spirit.

      Visibility is our best plan of attack right now against bigotry and stupidity.

      -8.75,-8.00. 1,138 rights and responsibilities of civil marriage are denied married same-sex couples, and I demand that we get them. RIGHT. NOW.
