I’m not going to go on at length. At all. But I truly do not undestand some things.
1. How does someone else’ marriage change the validity of mine? Polygamists, same-sex partners, goatherds with dewy eyes whenever he contemplates his caprine odalisque — none of those are in my marriage, so what how do they change it?
2. The No-on-8 crowd kept talking about “marriage, love, family, support”. Whereas Pro-8 can be exemplified by public blackmail. For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. 52% of voting Californians thought that threats and blackmail come from good trees — moral trees.
I am not, generally, political enough to even know the issues exist, let alone what they are. This one, though, makes me want to cry.
