Sanctity of Marriage?

by Please Tell Me (Kevin)

I find this ad so offensive.

In a world where I can not marry the person I love, they can make an ad where a man can marry a piece of bacon! Really? Are you kidding me? And then the tag line at the end “You may eat the bride!”, what’s that?

So much for the “sanctity of marriage”!

Proposition 8 Ruling…

Proposition 8
Proposition 8

This image sums it up pretty clearly!

Here is an online article with excerpts from the ruling:
Excerpts from ruling on Calif’s gay marriage ban

The judges rulings were straight to the point and put it in terms everyone could understand!
“…all parties agree that Proposition 8 had one effect only. It stripped same-sex couples of the ability they previously possessed to obtain from the state, or any other authorized party, an important right – the right to obtain and use the designation of ‘marriage’ to describe their relationships. Nothing more, nothing less.”

Hate Speech…

Sunday Croissants

So this morning started out to be a great relaxing Sunday morning; Logan waking me up with “Daddy? Are you sleeping?”, fresh homemade croissants and coffee.

Then I was checking the news headlines online and came across yet another instance of “hate speech” that really burns me up!

Santorum on Friday doubled down on attacks against the gay community, telling a gay man that he doesn’t deserve the ‘privilege’ of marriage because same sex relationships don’t “benefit society.”
“[Marriage] is an intrinsic good … we extend certain privileges to people who do that because we want to encourage that behavior,” he said after a gay audience member asked why homosexuals don’t deserve equal rights when it comes to marriage.

What is so offensive by Rick Santorum’s comments is not so much what he is saying (which is terrible), it is the fact he is being allowed to say it to so many people and no one calls him out as a “hate speech” speaker. Just because he is running for president and he is “speaking” for the Repbulican Party and all the other religious right wingers he can get away with it. There is a limit to our right to freedom of speech.

He is telling me that my relationship with my partner does not benefit society. He is telling my son that we do not befefit society.

WE DO BENEFIT SOCIETY! — It’s just that simple!

Walking A Fine Line…

Susan G. Komen

As a gay man, and adoptive father, sometimes you have to make decisions which may do more harm than good.

Recently I came across a blog posting talking about the VP of the Susan G. Komen foundation VP Karen Handel. She is quoted as being anti-gay and anti-gay adoption both topics which directly affect me and my family.

Now here is “the rub”, my sister and mother are both survivors of breast cancer and both participate in this fund raising activity very year. As a brother and son; I donate to the cause every year. — But no longer (unless…)

By “unless” I mean they must remove this bigot from their ranks. They must denounce such hatred from speaking for them. Yes, such a high ranking employee “does” speak for the company.

So some of you will say I am doing more harm than good by withholding my yearly donation and support. I say you have to make a stand and not give to foundations who support and hire employees who spread hate.
