A Sad Day for Love & Equality

Louisiana Voters Decide on Same-Sex Marriage Amendment

I'm not surprised, but disappointed. I was expecting it, but it still hurts.

I'm hoping for the results to be scrapped - to have another vote. A lot of New Orleans' voting spots didn't have voting machines due to delivery being screwed up by Ivan. The majority of Louisiana's gay population is in New Orleans, so how can that be fair? If a huge chunk of one side didn't get to vote because of the weather (some who left the area decided to stay away the entire weekend to avoid the coming-back traffic), how is that a fair vote?

Louisiana already has a law acknowledging only male & female marriages, but this new amendment goes even further. Louisiana now, also, will not acknowledge out of state gay marriages nor will it accept or allow civil unions. For a state with a heavy gay population, this is devastating. How can we discriminate like this? How can those who believe in this ban sleep at night - is securing "a place in heaven" justice enough to promulgate such prejudice?

Perhaps it's naive of me to think it should be any other way. We live in a world filled with bigotry, discrimination, ignorance, & hate. It's okay to hate gay people because they're different. It's okay to discriminate against gay people because they're different. It's okay to go against Love & Equality because people think god prefers it that way. Human beings have an aversion to things they don't understand - to things that are "different". What was I expecting exactly? That this would suddenly change?

Forgive my bitterness - being reminded what a hateful world we sometimes live in bruises my very soul.
