There Are Just No Words....

Please don't let this happen in California. Please. Oh, please. Please, please, please. I don't think I've ever prayed or worked harder in my life for a cause. I don't know how anyone could be undecided or remain on the sidelines after seeing something like this. Now, regarding The Little Black Book, Queer in the 21st Century mentioned in this article, please be forewarned that though images and text from inside the book are available at the Article 8 website, I do not recommend viewing them. Really, I don't. NOT AT ALL! I went to the web page and spent all of about 2 seconds scrolling down before I couldn't stomach the language and advice being offered anymore. I didn't even make it to the "obscene pornography" that is confirmed to be inside. Oh, I am still so sick over this. And to think it was being distributed by GLSEN to teenagers at a high school!

Also to be taken with a grain of salt is the author's adamant blame of Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for "allowing" same-sex marriage to become legal in Massachusetts. I don't really know anything about his office or life under his public service, but I do know that after reading this I did a little search on Mitt Romney and same-sex marriage. The first television interview I found had him saying that he didn't want either same-sex marriage or civil unions, but that if he had to choose between the two, he would choose civil unions. Seems pretty clear to me. And, after further research, I found that Eric Ferhnstrom, Romney's communications director, responded to questions about Romney's position on same-sex marriage with an email statement: "Governor Romney believes Americans should be respectful of all people. What he opposes are the efforts by activist judges who seek to redefine the longstanding institution of marriage being between a man and a woman." Anyway, like I said, a grain of salt.

What same-sex "marriage" has done to Massachusetts.
