Weddings of Mass Destruction

They ask us to forget terrorism. Forget our troops dying in  Iraq  Forget Osama Bin Laden.  Forget the homeless who freeze in winter, the lack of affordable housing, rising costs of  insurance, health care, and prescription costs that make even basic care impossible for many working Americans.

Put all that aside.

President Bush has identified the most important item on the national agenda.

 Who knew he meant gay and lesbian marriage when he spoke of "domestic terrorism?"

The President said, in his weekly radio address to the nation:

"When judges insist on imposing their arbitrary will on the people, the only alternative left to the people is an amendment to the Constitution -- the only law a court cannot overturn. A constitutional amendment should never be undertaken lightly -- yet to defend marriage, our nation has no other choice."

It is sad that the President would call a judicial ruling requiring equal civil  rights to be "arbitrary."

Of course, this is the same President who defends the limitations of rights, as imposed by the ill-named "Patriot Act.

As noted by Cheryl Jacques, President of the Human Rights Campaign:

"Just days after his administration announced new terrorist threats, President Bush took to the airwaves to promote a discriminatory amendment ranking dead last on the American people's priority list."

"President Bush and his Congressional allies should focus on the priorities of the American people, not the agenda of their extremist base."

"The Federal Marriage Amendment is discriminatory, unnecessary and it undermines our Constitution."

"President Bush and his extremist allies are trying to distract the American people from the serious challenges facing America.   The American people will see through these cynical politics."

They ask us to forget that those who oppose the marriage of loving, consenting adults, of the same sex have to create specious arguments in order to support their position.

I ask you to remember to vote.

In pride,

Deborah
