“One Step Forward, Two Steps Back”

That’s how MKD described the results of yesterday’s election. Although we moved forward in some regard, states like California, Arizona, Florida, and Arkansas moved backwards.

A poll from Newsvine had more people disagreeing with the gay marriage bans. Not like it matters now, but provides some comfort nonetheless. What is not comforting is reading the comments from people that support the ban. These comments are highly disturbing and fucked up to me. There is so much I have to say on each of them, and yet they leave me speechless and flabbergasted at the same time. Here’s a sampling (spelling mistakes and all...nothing has been doctored):

“Christianity has just flown out the window! Our new Muslim president is proof of that. The Bible says gay marriage is wrong. I say yes.”

“I respect ones right to choose their partner. But marriage is a choice not a right. I'll give you insurance but not marriage. Sorry”

“This is complete crap that California overruled the people and decided that these fags can wed. But California is the armpit of the US.”

“Absolutely! Homosexual marriage should not be forced on anyone.”

“AIDS: kills Fags Dead!”

“I just think that we have a responsibility to our children to promote a moral society that does not celebrate a self annihilation.”

“"Gay Pride"? thou dost protest too much. A very loud minority; please, shut up for a while. Go find your closet again and give us a break.”

“The positive way of wording this: PRO-marriage. To perserve the moral sanctity of rightful marriage, we must fight against the gay agenda.”

So yeah. I look forward to the day where I am no longer a second-class citizen and an abomination of Man.
