Grow up, America!
"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.
The passing of Proposition 8 in California invalidates the formerly legal 18,000 marriages that took place prior to the passing of this outrageously regressive and discriminatory bill.
I defy anyone to watch this video and not cry for the innocent victims of the idiotic Fundy Filosofee backed by government charitable status tax breaks and most notably headed by the lying Mormon Church. One thing all these Fundy churches have in common is their enthusiastic participation in the World's Greatest Liar Contest. (Recent contestant: the denying of the holocaust by Il Papa. .)
These patriarchal guardians of all the world's wombs and their contents also conveniently disregard the innocent children of the unions of such partnerships in the selective amnesia of their outlandish cultish belief system.
Meanwhile, it's business as usual. None of the real issues of the day are fondled - poverty, homelessness, lack of health care, infant mortality, world's worst incarcerations, water and food crises and national bankruptcy.
But, as always, where one places one's naughty bits is a matter of top global priority.
