While I agree with their position on DOMA, when it comes to the fate of California's amendment and by possible extension, every other one of them, why prolong the inevitable? Yes there will be backlash, just as there has been with every other necessary radical change in this country's history. Why should we let the impotent rage of the hateful stop us from doing what is right?

You just said it, Rick. It's the rage of the hateful that they're afraid of, despite being a small group of ignorant fools. It's precisely *because* they're ignorant fools that their rage is so hard to deal with.

Their beliefs and actions are based not on logical thinking, reasonable behaviour, and respect for other people, but knee-jerk reactions to things they haven't even bothered to think about.

When they think of marriage equality, they conjure up an image of two guys making out, get the heebee jeebies, and decide that same-sex sex is icky and gross and should be outlawed.....

....then they log onto the Internet and queue up some girl-on-girl porn to jerk off to.

They think about two guys having anal sex and declare how disgusting and wrong it is and how it should be prohibited at all costs.

....but check out your spam filter sometime and see just how phenomenally popular anal sex is in straight porn. Or, better yet, ask ANY straight woman if she's ever met a straight guy that doesn't want a "back door pass". It appears to be one of the Holy Grail's of hetero sex.

As long as we continue to value ignorance and superstition over logic, reason, and respect for one another, we're going to continue to allow the idiots to run the asylum.

Nice, huh? We're surrounded by idiots and there's nothing we can do about it.
