Gay rights supporters outnumbered the homophobes there by more than 10 to 1. What the hell is Maggie and company going to do when we inevitably win at the ballot box?

Don't hold your breath. Every American electorate has rejected homosexual marriage, just as homosexuals themselves have overwhelmingly rejected it as an actual practice in every country where it's legal.

Face reality, this is all a farce.

I think Brien and Maggie were taken by surprise by their paltry turn-out and our huge turn out. One number I heard early in the day pegged visitors to the Judiciary Committee hearings at 550 against the bills vs 45 for. It was amazing how fast the small couterie of repeal advocates disappeared after the hearings began.

My theory is that they desperately rushed back to their mobile office in the NOM bus to start up the emergency support system. When I got home from the hearings, I had SEVEN messages left by NOM's robocaller--starting at 10:40 AM. The hearings began at 10:30.

I remember a similar argument popular about 15 years ago. You can't really be gay because the parts don't fit. LOL.
If gay marriage is a farce, stop fighting it. It can't REALLY happen right? Leave us alone
and well figure it out on our own; maybe settle down with a nice opposit gender spouse.
