How to rub it in

Not happy with having got their way over Proposition 8 – the cruel piece of legislation that changes California’s Constitution to outlaw same-sex marriage – opponents of the admirable piece of equality they’ve just put the kybosh on now want those that got married while the going was good to lose that status. The bastards.

See the full story here in Pink News. The story says:

The Protect Marriage coalition supported Proposition 8. It passed in November, putting an end to gay marriages. In May the California Supreme Court ruled that to deny gay and lesbian couples the right to marry was unconstitutional.

Around 18,000 same-sex couples got married between June 16th and the November vote.

Well, we do know there’s a lot of activity to get this dinosaur piece of legislation reversed. In the meantime, enjoy a piss-take – bigotry set to music, you might say.

You won’t hear much from me for a few days (do I hear sighs of relief?) – I’m away doing family stuff. Have a nice Christmas – or whatever you want to call it.
