It has only just begun…

  1. Here, here!
    This proposition 8 thing pisses me off to no end. Jeremy and I (and maybe the others) are going to a rally here in Columbus on Saturday. This isn’t fair. It isn’t just. It isn’t American.
    Fuck the Mormon Church.

    • We have a rally scheduled in Fayetteville, AR Saturday as well to oppose hate legislation. We just passed a horrible document banning co-habitating couples of any sexual orientation from fostering or adopting kids. Sigh. Because the people behind the bill would rather farm kids out to state care (i.e. orphanages) than see a gay couple or a couple “living in sin” provide a stable home, food, love, protection! Argh! It makes no sense! So we will be standing on the corner opposing both Prop 8 and our own Act 1 hate legislation.

      • Oh Good Grief!! I’m glad we didn’t have anything that asinine here in Oklahomo this time around. I might really have to slap some suckers.
        Seriously. Is this what people have to do with their time?
        *Grabs hair, screams, runs in circles, etc. etc.*

  2. The pure religious intolerance (and that’s what it is – after all, as it is their religion that is telling them that only a man/woman partnership is sanctified) that is being thrust down our throats cannot be tolerated.
    The strength and beauty that is your relationship is one of the candles that stands during this dark vigil for all of our civil rights. Thank you both for making such a very bright light in the darkness.

    • No Kink for Prop 8 Mormons
      No spankings, no waterplay, no humiliation scenes, no canings, no floggings. They are hurting people. They don’t deserve the attention.

  3. Here in Canada, gays have had the right to marry for a while now and strangely enough, straight marriages are still happening, established marriages don’t seem to have deteriorated at a rate any faster than before, and the country has neither exploded nor burned to the ground. Maybe we’re doing it wrong? ^__~

    • Hmm. Maybe being part of the Commonwealth means your country has a built-in immunity to the dangers queens (and kings!) might otherwise pose to our oh-so-democratic benighted states?
      Or maybe your fags just need to kick it up a notch.
      I’m officially on the market for a man with a big, fat Canadian passport.

  4. I’ve been hearing from lawyers that those marriages that occured during the legal time period will remain legal. I know it doesn’t address the problem as a whole – but wondering if you know this is true or not?

  5. You Are Married
    You two are so obviously, joyfully married. No one can take that away.
    I’m all for gay marriage being legal and I also know it will be a looooong time before such a thing is legal here in Texas.
    We ended our recent wedding with the officiant saying lines:
    Only a couple can administer the sacrament of marriage to each other, and only a couple can sanctify it. Neither the church, nor any power vested in me by the state, can grant me the authority to declare what only two hearts can declare, and what only two souls can make real.
    And so now, in as much as you, Dori, and you, Suzanne, have announced the truths that are already written in your hearts, and have witnessed the same in the presence of these, your family and friends, — we observe joyfully that you have declared yourselves to be … Life Partners.

  6. *So* adorable.
    The state recognizes Mor(m)on marriage and divorce–as an honest-to-state minister, regular church-goer (no, really) and pagan priest, I really want to know where the religious discrimination against our rites and rights of marriage comes in. Ok, that makes three comments on one post, so I’m done now.

  7. Hope all is going great with the store & life.
    Keep on keeping on, a couple so beautiful inside & out can’t be denied their rights for long. This is a fight we will win.
    YES WE CAN!
