Protect Marriage? From what exactly?

My God, I know I shouldn’t do it but I visit the conservative blog Red County to keep up on the latest hatefest from the Republicans running against each other in the June 3rd Primary, mostly Walters and Sidhu, one of which will be the Republican that my husband Gary Pritchard will be running against in the GE.

So, I found myself drawn to the idyllic photos of married couples for the advertisement, “ProtectMarriage.com” and I had to click on it.  Why?  Why do I do this to myself?

Look, this poor family frolicking on the beach could be attacked by gays at any second?  Shouldn’t we protect them from such an onslaught?   Huh?  Doesn’t make much sense does it?  Well, after the cut, I’ve listed the organizations, elected offices, churches and individuals who support the latest attempt to ban Gay Marriage in California.  Call them, let them know that you don’t need your marriage protected, I know I don’t.  And if you are one of the many people who want to marry their love who happens to be the same sex, call them and let them know that you deserve the same rights as they take for granted.

I know this is not the most intellectually sound argument for gay marriage but I get so worked up when I see such blatant homophobia, to think that this is acceptable in this day and age is mind boggling to me and it saddens me to no end.  No more.
