    thing.

    The thing is, as stated by TichMarie, words DO matter. Words have meaning, words have impact. Words wound, words heal, words CONVEY. WHAT we say IS as important as HOW we say it.

    People thought George Bush was nuts when he uttered that line about how words mean what he wants them to mean, but that really is a part of the conservative ideology, to make words mean something other than what they mean to most people. "Domestic partnership" does not convey the same sense of love, committment and unity as the word "marriage" does. So get it through your thick fucking skulls that the fucking word is important!

    •  Screw the word. I don't want it (0+ / 0-)

      Let the Mormons, Baptists, Witchdoctors, KKK or the freaking bridge club throw their blessings at whatever twaddle they like.  

      As far as I'm concerned the word is as ruined for me as  the sacrament Joe and Jill SixPack serve with their lips and sphincters.

      I say stop the priests, elders and faith-healers from dispensing instruments of CIVIL dispensations and let them have their incantations, magic drawers and miracle water jugs.  

      Give me equal rights under the law and call it "Fred" for all I care.  

      I'll decide whether to pray to some alien-spaghetti-demilord or not -- I'll be just as happy.  

      I'll be even happier, should the whole bunch of fundie magic-junkies boycott my the "unnatural abomination" that is my LEGAL arrangement with our constitution.  

      (Wow. I feel better :o  We now resume your regularly scheduled program of apologetics.)

      -5.75 -5.85 Belief in absolutes is the laziest form of delusion.
