I Dude

They just introduced a bill in Congress to dump DOMA. Y’all know DOMA right? It’s the “defense of marriage act.” Ever wonder why marriage needed defending? Me too. Question to the social conservatives who rammed the bill through in the first place: WTF should government have a role in sayin’ who can be married or not? I was always told that conservatives wanted smaller, less intrusive government. I guess that only applies to insurance company regulation…and banking industry regulation and environmental regulation… stuff like that. Now I know what some of y’all are gonna be sayin’, “We don’t want anyone out there marryin’ their cousins or getting hitched to their dogs. True dat. But there are already laws on the book that address those issues. What DOMA is, is an anti-gay, homophobic, conservative Christian piece of crapola that shouldn’t have been passed in the first place. It’s nice to see that at least one chucklenut over in DC is thinkin’ with his big head instead of his little head.

Oh yeah…in India (and some other countries)…people do marry goats and pigs and horses. So far, JZeus’ Dad has let ‘em pretty much slide on that one. Heck-fire…the Old Testament is filled with plural marriages and folks bangin’ on the side. So if the tighty-righties start talkin’ about wrath from the Invisible Man in the Sky ‘cause we allow gays to be married…ask ‘em WTF was up with Lamech…and Abraham…and Jacob…and David…and Solomon and the rest of those OT horndogs. That ought to shut their pie holes.
