Shouldn’t you be working on something important?

“Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.”

The senate is currently debating if we should add this text (or another very similar version) to the constitution. Is it just me or aren’t their more important things congress should be working on? It almost feels like you walk by an employee’s cube and you catch them playing minesweeper instead of working. We have a skyrocketing national debt, heath care costs are exploding, long-term social security viability, our nationwide dependence on oil, hell even immigration reform is a better topic. It may just be me, but gay marriage is such a low priority for me.

Personally I believe homosexual’s should be allowed to marry, and be treated the same as everyone else. It may take a generation or two but this will happen.

    Sounds like someone’s pulling out a skeleton from their closet.

    I agree 100% with Greg and about every one of the more important issues. I also think it will happen in a generation or two, when our generation that grows up with more acceptance (helped along by MTV’s dating shows that occasionally have gay or lesbian contestants) gets into congress.

    But then again, the pot-smoking generation is currently in congress and they’re still mostly bound by the stigma. Maybe the reform period is closer to two generations long…

    Where was the cartoon (motion, not print) depicting America as a shivering, scared person that saw another person and screamed and killed them because they were scared of the things that made the two of them different? Bowling for Columbine?
