An Ironic Twist in the Gay Marriage Battle Here in Florida

Fifty years ago, African Americans rightly fought for their civil rights. But now that we gay guys and gals want ours, a coalition of black (and Latin) preachers down here in Florida are protesting lifting the ban on gay marriage on the grounds that in 2008, 62% of the electorate voted against dropping the ban.

Ironic ain’t it? Shouldn’t what was good for the goose be good for the gander? Plus 2008 might as well be the nineteenth century with the way things have changed. And it’s a fact today a majority – slight though it may be – of Americans don’t give two shits who marries who.

Well, all I can do is play back the video tape – if it’s unconstitutional, it’s unconstitutional, and I don’t give a fuck if the vote was nineteen million to one.

Supreme Court, will you stop worrying about campaign contributions by the multi-billionaires and settle this once and for all?
