This made me smile (via the AssPress):
At the request of a lesbian couple, the Coquille Indian Tribe on the southern Oregon coast has adopted a law recognizing same-sex marriage.
Legal scholars said that tribes do have authority over domestic relations among tribal members, but Congress may have the ultimate say-so.
Please let the GOP make “Fucking with the Native Americans,” a priority this election season. I want to see those asshats talking about the threat Native American tribes pose to American Traditions.
“For our tribe, we want people to walk in the shoes of other people and learn to respect differences,” the tribal chief, Ken Tanner, told The Oregonian newspaper. “Through that, we think we build a stronger community.”
Egads! A desire to live in harmony with people who aren’t exactly like you. Is that allowed?
Congratulations to the Brantings.
Update – Just in time, Hallmark Cards puts the moves on a big juicy market share (via The Washington Post):
Most states don’t recognize gay marriage – but now Hallmark does.
The nation’s largest greeting card company is rolling out same-sex wedding cards featuring two tuxedos, overlapping hearts or intertwined flowers, with best wishes inside. “Two hearts. One promise,” one says.
None shall be spared the syrupy platitudes!
