Privileged as we are in the socially-liberal UK, we have had the rights to countrywide civil partnerships between same-sex couples since I swear you can see the sanctimonious Bible-belt judgement seeping from his pores. And I know there are always those who "Admonishments to heterosexuals" but if we take such a stand for righteousness.
If we do hold to the idea — as you did in Iowa, and God bless you for it — then marriage still means that a man marries a woman and remains faithful in a partnership for life.
And there may be some even here tonight who will say, will that make some people mad? And the answer is yes. Will it get me in trouble? Will it perhaps even cost me my job? But if we gain the world and we lose our soul, will you please tell me what it has profited us? You should know that I originally meant to present this quote with my opinions threaded throughout it, annotation-style. And the links Huckabee makes to religion strike me as terribly unfair.
Me and Lucifer have been having a good time together. Does it matter whether or not both parties are cisgender? In all honesty, I probably do know a few more gays than most people do. it happens tomorrow, fine; if it never happens, equally fine.
But to get tangled up in restrictive labels and semantics so that people can be comfortable, so they can have an ascribed way to view you and Admonishments to heterosexuals about you and talk about you from that point forward seems unbearably sad.
This sense of denying a whole sector of humanity the rights they deserve because of something they cannot help is, and always will be, abhorrent to me. There will come a time when homophobia is treated with the same legal severity as racism.
And I can hang onto that hope, because of something I find lots of traditionally raised young black people forget. See, about "Admonishments to heterosexuals" years ago?
WE were the gays. Oh hey, Obama, good to see you again. Queer as Folk - completely ahead of its time. There's not as many women as you think there are in this one. Moira and Jenny in The L Word.
Because this was on the most successful television show in the world. Kurt and Blaine, Glee. If they ever get divorced, there's going to be an apocalypse worse than when I found out babies aren't actually made via my five-year-old brain's microwave theory.
