the amendment

texas constitutional amendment 2 (up for vote this coming tuesday november 8th) is intended to prevent gay marriage from coming to texas.

but it proves that not only are the christian fundamentalist wackos who pushed this through the legislature (including governor goodhair) homophobic bigots, they are stupid homophobic bigots.

check this out. here's what the constitutional amendment says:

ARTICLE I Sec. 32. (a) Marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman.
(b) This state or a political subdivision of this state may
not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to
marriage.

read that again.

carefully.

it defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

and then outlaws it.

this almost makes it worth voting for.

  2. hey - since it passed, then i'm not joking when i say my lame-o marriage (hetero) in my mid-20's "doesn't count".

    of course, i always said it doesn't go on your permanent record if it's under 2 years. but hell, looks like now it doesn't count because it was, er, identical to, er, marriage... heh heh.

    *dumbasses*
    they deserve Bush.
