This disgusting person is on the wrong side of history.

So is this asshole.

These are the ramblings of a mad man. A man who has made it his life's work to convince you that LGBT people are vermin.

You have been deceived by some truly awful people.

There is no low to which they will not stoop.
They'll invoke our nation's worst terrorist attack to convince you how evil we are.

Many years ago we started a march towards equality that won't be stopped.

Over the years we've had great victories.

We've grown stronger and stronger.

Yes, we've experienced terrible trials together...

...and set-backs that were simply humiliating.

Some events were so horrific that the nation finally stood up and began to take notice.

Somehow through it all we've managed to hold our heads up, slog on and grow stonger still.

Meanwhile, the country grew too.

Even some Republican politicians are getting it.

You see, the people who led you to vote to enshrine hate in your State Constitution think they have won a grand victory tonight.

In reality, this pyrrhic victory puts you squarely behind the times and has embarrassed the state of North Carolina. To the people who voted yes on this hateful amendment...

To my brothers and sisters who fought so hard to defeat this backward amendment, my heart goes out to you, to us.

Take solace in the fact that the haters are losing their grip. These shameful moments in our history will someday be a thing of the past. We will one day secure everyone's right to marry the person they love.

And we will do it with never failing courage and pride.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
