This is so gay. 

Good thing the Senate is around. Man, never thought I'd ever write that sentence. Anyway, even a white hetero like myself can see that this proposed ban is a clear infringement on civil rights and is supported only by our non-sensical fear and Christian conservatism. Even when its masqueraded as a political ploy to sway votes, its still wrong.

Senate Judiciary Committee (news - web sites) Chairman Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican, said: "Nobody wants to discriminate against gays ... Gays have a right to live the way they want. But they should not have the right to change the definition of traditional marriage. That is where we draw the line."

Are you fucking kidding me? Traditional marriage? Don't 50% of American marriages end in divorce? Why yes. Yes they do. There's no sanctity here.

This is interesting, though, for all you blind partisan voters.

Kerry and his running mate, Sen. John Edwards (news - web sites) of North Carolina, oppose same sex-marriage, but argue amending the Constitution is not the answer. Like most Democratic lawmakers, they say states should have the power to define marriage.

States rights? Fine. Maybe. But when will it ever become popular to politic against injustice?
