I, Boxturtle

Hate amendment goes down in flames (although 48 Yays are 48 too many), but less ye forget…
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) in a speech to that affable Heritage Foundation:

“It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right. . . . Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.”

What is it with these people and animals? Nutty.
Warning! GOP pr0n follows!

    Did you happen to catch The Daily Show’s wrap up of the gay marriage vote? Jon Stuart’s commentary (inlcuding a diagram to help illustration the union of man and box turtle) left me laughing so hard I was having trouble breathing.
    They posted the video clip:

    Only 48? It should have been 98!
    It boggles the mind that the most important institution to our civilization is going to be tinkered with to satisfy some special interest group.
    btw, the real “hate” is coming from those who hate people with moral beliefs different from the “PC” mentality of moral relativism. Notice how on these issues before you know it, conservatives are attacked in personal terms as not just wrong but ‘evil’?
    That attitude is not tolerance, but just a rearrangement of prejudices.
