  • Mood:

I cry

Well, yesterday New Mexico made the news when one county declared that same-sex marriages were not illegal. Dozens of couples poured into the courthouse to get married. By the afternoon the attorney general declared that not only should all marriages cease, but that all of those that were conducted were null and void.

And so this morning I sat at the table with my cup of coffee and read about all of the loving couples lining up on the courthouse steps, getting their licenses, and going home to celebrate their new union, only to have some bitch politician say that it is wrong. And our own liberal democratic governor comes out and says he opposes gay marriage. And asshole Republicans come out and declare it evil. And many locals that were interviewed said that they really didn't care. If gays want to be married, let them. And of course you get the usual asshole spouting off about the f'ing Bible, saying this and that. Will all of you jerkoffs that quote the Bible finally realize that the overall message is LOVE! Love each other and love your god. That's all.

And as I put down the paper a tear rolled down my cheek. I pictured my new sweetie sitting next to me knowing that I could not provide health insurance for him because he would not be recognized as my partner. I cried at the smiling faces of all of the couples in the picture who represent love, but were thought of as something wrong. I cried because politicians, who are supposed to be representing me, are turning their backs on me. I cry at the illogic. I just cry.
