The religious right’s bigoted message on marriage

You have to love the zealots over that the religious right — sometimes the obliviousness they display is truly stunning.

A case in point: The most recent edition of the North Carolina Family Policy Council’s “Family North Carolina” magazine which includes the following consecutive stories:

Got that? Right after they get done telling you how only certain kinds of people should be allowed to marry, they follow it up with an article telling you how marriage is the key to a decent worldly existence!

Come to think of it, however, maybe it isn’t obliviousness. Maybe these folks are just being straightforward with their bigotry. Here’s a suggested combined title for the two articles when they do a reprint:  

“Marriage: the key to a happy life…for the people we think are entitled to lead one.”

    Why would you want acceptance from this crowd?

    Most have never read Leviticus. They’re using a single verse of a book they know nothing about to justify their prejudices.

    The ones who have read it and still use it to justify their stance are the ones to worry about. This is one of the books that should serve as a wakeup call to rational individuals, not be a cornerstone of your morality.

    JeffS, we don’t want acceptance from anyone, just equal treatment under the law. They can sneer and hate and act disgusted all they want, we don’t care what their opinions are, just want equal protection, etc.
