My guess is they're so bored with themselves and their lot they will find bad reasons to give meaning to so many empty days.. Somebody must pay for their accumulated bitterness.. I never knew (or heard of) a contented, reasonably fulfilled person who wanted to persecute or harass anybody..

They'll be about as successful as all the other "protect marraige" groups were in Washington, Maryland, Maine, etc,etc, etc.

The only question is whether Illinois is the 10th or 11th state with marriage equality.

Fear, and specifically fear of what children will learn, is one of their primary tools used to scare people into voting for discrimination.

Like Tony Perkins, they fearfully warn that if same sex couples are allowed to marry, your kids will learn there are same sex families. They falsely imply; if same sex marriage is defeated, they will not learn there are same sex families.

They just want to make sure the only thing kids are taught is prejudice and discrimination.

"you've Got To Be Taught
to Hate And Fear,
you've Got To Be Taught
from Year To Year,
it's Got To Be Drummed
in Your Dear Little Ear
you've Got To Be Carefully Taught.

you've Got To Be Taught To Be Afraid
of People Whose Eyes Are Oddly Made,
and People Whose Skin Is A Diff'rent Shade,
you've Got To Be Carefully Taught.

you've Got To Be Taught Before It's Too Late,
before You Are Six Or Seven Or Eight,
to Hate All The People Your Relatives Hate,
you've Got To Be Carefully Taught"

Why do you continue to misunderstand me? I stand for love, not hatred. The only hatred I have ever felt is for those who go against me teachings. And even that is not true hatred, only deep deep pity.

It is time for those who cannot get along with others to come home to God. Please, please, realize that I am here whilst you wait for me.

For those who are cursed with idiocy, realize that taking your own life is not a sin, but a commitment to God.

So please, David Moore and all those who are similarly mentally challenged, OD now on whatever drugs you can find, and come home to God.

Wonderful! Is this really Rodgers and Hammerstein or are you just too impossibly clever?

From the play "South Pacific".

It is a short little song which was almost cut from the movie for being too controversial. It starts out with an acknowledgement of prejudice, and the lead saying: "It's not born in you. It happens after you're born."
