Two Steps Forward…

And a big step back for equality rights of Maine. It frankly pisses me off so much, that with all the strife and inequality in the world, the majority of bigoted jerks in Maine decided to tyrranize a minorty of people who have been fighting an uphill fight their whole lives for the same rights the majority of citizens have. Here’s an example of how proud the ‘winners’ are of how they successfully revoked their brothers and sisters rights to do exactly as they are allowed to do.

550000 dollars funded just from the Catholic Church. If you’re Catholic, and that doesn’t make you shamed and disgusted, well, then we have no words to share. However, I’m glad that  this was so close because it made those pathetic bigots sweat, and it shows them how their homophobic days are numbered. This is probably a demographic thing, as Pam has pointed out, young people are more likely to support equality, and as the outdated swine die off, the world can become a better place in their putrid wake. I also have a renewed pride in Canada, as well as all the places in the world that do allow equal marriage, but I wish that we weren’t so rare, and with this step, become a bit more exceptional.
