Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, which opposes same-sex marriage, said Massachusetts, as the first and only other state to legalize gay marriage, would be a case study, and he expressed hope that Californians would approve the proposed constitutional ban. Calling the California court ruling "an outrageous act of judicial activism" and an "assault on democracy," Mineau asserted: "The lessons to draw out of Massachusetts will be that this was done by judicial edict. The people need to take back democracy."
Let me explain something to you Kris. See, when you have folks vote on a civil rights issue, they don't tend to vote on the constitutionality of the actual issue but instead base their vote on whatever their parents, church, friends and or family have taught them about the particular subject. I don't know about you, but I tend to try to think for myself and not to blindly follow the dogma of any particular organization. God gave me a brain for a reason.
So please do us all a favor and leave the good folks of California alone. Don't gather up a band of your religious political extremists and hop on the next plane to the west coast. They don't need you there. And to be honest, we don't need you here either.
I am worried about some minor issues going on around me today - the cost of gas, the war in Iraq, how much I have to pay for healthcare, the dumbing down of America. Who my neighbor is married to or what they do in their bedroom - not so much.
Really Kris, don't you think there are better ways to spend your time?
