Upon hearing the news from North Carolina, the passing of their second constitutional amendment (the first, in 1875, was to ban interracial marriage, by the way), I wasn't surprised. The outcome was a given. Too much money greasing the palm of the Hand of God, as it were, for the sexual infidels to ever carry the day. These bigots, this is the "tyranny of evil men" mentioned in Ezekiel 25:17. So, fuck the lot of them. Fuck them to the nearest hell. There may, possibly, come a day when the ignorance and hatred that saw to the success of "Amendment 1." North Carolina, and this nation as a whole, may one day mature to a point where it understands that forbidding two women or two men to marry is as reprehensible as forbidding marriage on the basis of race. But I'm not going to hold my breath.
To repeat what I said on Facebook, fuck the men and women who fear and hate. I'll remain Aunt Beast. I don't need their god – or any god – to approve of...anything.
There were other things I was going to write, but I think I'm too angry. Just because I wasn't surprised doesn't mean I was prepared for my emotions upon hearing the outcome.
