Or as Fred Phelps is probably putting it in some newsletter as we speak, God Hates Maine. Yes, Maine legalized gay marriage today, joining Gay-mont, Gay-owa, Gay-sachusetts, and Gay-necticut. That’s 5 out of 50, America. 10% ain’t bad – especially considering it was just 2% six months ago.
But remember, it’s still 90% less than Canada… four years ago. Though a word to the “civil partnership” states of France, Germany and the UK: conservative old America is starting to make you look sorta lame.
In other gay marriage news, Joe The Plumber put his eloquent two cents in on the subject:
From The Huffington Post, relaying an interview between Joe and Christianity Today:
Christianity Today: In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?
Joe the Plumber: At a state level, it’s up to them. I don’t want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it’s wrong. People don’t understand the dictionary–it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do–what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.
