What's Important This Week?


Iraq?

Death and destruction?

Medical care?

Energy?

Voting and civil rights?

New Orleans?

Naw -- none of that stuff means jack-shit this week. What's important is whether two fags can get married in the Metropolitan Community Church. What will Paul Summers say? Who will care?

Speaking of which -- how nice to have a constitutional admendment to prohibit ministers in the Metropolitan Community Church from marrying two of his parishners. They are a Xtain religion after all. Will it apply to all xtians?

I have a suggestion for a constitutional admendment. Require Baptists to follow their lawd and king George ... oops ... Jesus and do what he did, namely, serve wine at communion. But I forget that today's Baptists wouldn't recognise what Jesus did if PityPat Roberstson left them a note under their pillow.

They are interested in a "stable family life" according to the biggest loser this year, Rick (R-gimme'awedgeissue - or at least a wedgie). "A stable family"? Oh, yeah, ones like Newt Gingrich has had three times or Billy'sBoyToyRoy has had twice.

They can kiss my uvula. (Better look it up before you send me a nasty note!)

John,
Interesting post. I think the Federal Marriage Amendment is not suppose to limit if a religious organization wants to marry 2 gay individuals but rather an issue of the government recognizing it.
I am not in favor of this amendment because I think it is redundant and not needed.

Of course if government doesn't recognise it, what's the point? The point of the marriage/civil union is to have government recognition, and the obligations of law on the parties. Plus nowadays there are all sorts of penalties for not being married - acess to a partners medical condition, adoption, divorce, attorny-client, inheritance, someone said that there are at least 43 penalties a person suffers if not married to their partner -- except in Alabama and Texas, where there are 143.

I am very interested in what the 43 penalties are. I would appreciate it if you can point me that way. Thanks for help.

I'll try to find them ... it was probably in a little news utem that I have long since deleted. Of course, some of the more significant ones are above.
