Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," your premiere portal for Remembrance of Things Past. God-wise, that is. If you want a crash course on Deity Diversity Training, you've found the right spot!
Reading today in the newspaper that Alabama has a ballot question for its state constitution. Voters will soon be able to decide whether or not they want Alabama to be a state where marriage can only exist between a man and a woman. Those pushing for the amendment want their victory to be even more resounding than neighboring Texas, where 70 percent of voters favored having the government define marriage for them.
The newspaper article bemoaned the fact that Alabama has such a wonderful record on civil rights for African Americans and women, how could this happen?
Say Whaaaaaat? If ever a state had to be dragged kicking and screaming into treating black people at least as good as its farm animals, it is Alabama.
Let's do a little Clarence Darrowing on this gay marriage business, okay?
If you tell gays they cannot legalize their unions, then the next step is making them wear white armbands with rainbows on them. The next step after that is torching their houses, lynching them, and depriving them of their livelihoods. After that, you herd them into boxcars and take them off to camp.
Take heart, o you Rainbow Alabamians! (Is that what it is, Alabamians?)
