I don’t know how much more mental, spiritual and physical abuse I can take from the most conservative president ever. Oblomova brings us today’s example of Obama’s GBLT hatred [via the White House Blog, 19/7/11]:
President Obama is proud to support the Respect for Marriage Act, which is being introduced by Senator Feinstein and Congressman Nadler in the Senate on July 20. This legislation would uphold the principle that the federal government should not deny gay and lesbian couples the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.
The President has long called for a legislative repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which continues to have a real impact on the lives of real people — our families, friends and neighbors.
It’s enough to make you cry out “How long, O Lord. How long?”

Update: I suppose I should comment on the actual passage of the law, but frankly this shit is starting to wear me out.
Or at least, reading the comment by the 900,784,265th misguided str8 jackhole to argue that there should be two classes of citizens: Those who are legally joined by civil unions and those who are legally joined by marriage is a strain.
I swear to the God Mike claims he believes in that this shorter is 100% accurate.
The destructive effect of Equal Marriage Rights is SO POWERFUL, it sent shockwaves back in time and forced parents to neglect their kids even when simply being attracted to someone of the same gender was a crime and/or a mental illness!
Because heaven forbid we blame straight men for ANYTHING.
Shorter Santorum: Waiter, I didn’t order this flabby, pallid … Hey! How’d my ass get on this platter?
Alternate Shorter Santorum: Are we sure those civilization-destroying pervs have 1st Am. rights?
By the way, if anyone knows Dan Savage, tell him it is way past time to fire up the website again. Thx!
The Doughy Pantload (AKA Jonah Goldberg), on equal marriage rights, Take 2:
But all I can say in my defense is that I think I’m right about the inevitability of gay marriage or at least very strong civil unions (which would ultimately lead to gay marriage, anyway). [Bzzzt! The correct answer is: All I can say in my defense is I'll shut up and never seek to communicate with another human being for the rest of my miserable life - ed.]
I don’t take this position because I’m dodging, or caving, or playing games of some kind [Butcha aaare, ya aaare in the chair, Blanche! - ed]. I just happen to think it’s true (barring some scientific developments down the road).
Yup. According to the Loathesome Doughfucker, unspecified “scientific developments” could stop the inevitable spread of equal marriage rights in this country.
Those of us who know a teeny bit about events both past and current tend to reach for the trusty blunderbuss we hear this kind of talk. It makes us nervous.
However, those of us who know jackshit about anything are free to blithely claim that gays were the best friends a Nazi ever had ergo liberals are fascists but maybe a scientific development or two will set things right, which is (of course) central to the point.
