Congrats North Carolinians. Thanks to your perceived need to specifically alter your constitution just to discriminate against a certain class of human beings, whenever I think of your state, I will think of backwoods, rednecked bigots.
Is North Carolina really SO full of homophobic, insecure, hate-mongoring losers that the “issue” of gay marriage became a hot-button topic for the state? I will NEVER understand how people can be so incredibly insecure about their own beliefs and place in the world, that they feel the need to lash out and bash or discriminate against another class of human beings with a different lifestyle.
A special congratulations goes out to Brian Brown – president of the “National Organization for Marriage”, as I’m giving him the coveted “Scum of the Week” award. How proud he must be to lead an organization whose sole purpose is to effectively preach intolerance towards gays. But PLEASE, Mr. Brown, do us all a favor and give your organization a PROPER name. Your group isn’t about “defending” marriage, as you claim. “Marriage” between a man and woman doesn’t need “defending”. My marriage to my wife is affected in NO way by the legal or personal relationship of a pair of human beings somewhere else on the planet. Gay marriage in NO way “threatens the institution of marriage” as your organization claims.
Hence the call for a name change for your organization. How about “Organization of Homophobic Bigots”? Or “Insecure Rednecks of America”? Something along those lines, Mr. Brown? If you’re going to preach intolerance and hatred, you might as well be honest with America, and with yourselves, about what your true motivations are.
