Private: Same Sex Marriage = Masturbation

Haven't you ever wanted to crawl inside the minds of the ultraconservatives? The ones who think the end of the world must be nigh if homosexuals have the chance to join in holy matrimony? The ones who cry the loudest and take it as a personal affront that the government would even allow others to a differing moral code?

The Washington Post article, "For Foes of Same-Sex Marriage, It's the Thought That Counts", gives you a few such glimpses; it isn't pretty.

Thought the best part of the entire article, hands-down, is the small snippet about Sandra Rodrigues, a Utah woman who proudly admits to spending the family's "vacation money" to come picket and shout her thoughts in front of the Russell Senate Office Building for the past week.

Sandra displays a sign - one she likely had her children carefully color in - that reads: Stop Same Sex Marriage: It Endorses Masturbation.

You first thought is that she's one of the nutjobs from Westboro Baptist Church. Who else goes around wielding such blatanly ignorant and absurd signs? But, no, you soon, sadly, realize that Mrs. Rodrigues is simply a small-minded, all-American, ultra-conservative hypocrite - a minority, to be sure, but a forceful and frightening group all the same.

Does she really believe the silliness she's Sharpied onto her posterboard? Is there some deeper meaning that those of us slightly higher on the evolutionary scale aren't getting?

Indeed, there is:

"If same-sex marriage is endorsed," she explained, "then you're going to have children think it's just another option to have pleasure."

Thank you for clarifying that, Sandra, dear. In other words, gay people marrying cheapens the whole "matrimony" deal? If those silly gay people can get "married", then straight children will just lose all sense of what the "institution of marriage" is all about, is that it?

In other words - your words - gay people aren't capable of love. By your reasoning, gay people only want to get married for a lark - maybe for the sex, since we all know they're sex-fiends of the highest order, right? Or maybe they don't even really care about getting married. Most like, they all decided to push the marriage issue just to piss you conservatives off. Of course, it's all part of the "gay agenda"; they're all in kahoots. I mean, everyone knows they're all out to secretly turn everyone in the world gay, isn't that it, Mrs. Rodrigues?

Did it ever cross your mind that gay people may want to join together - spiritually, religiously and legally - with someone they are in love with; someone they want to spend the rest of their lives with? Could it not be as simple as wanting to be able to experience that act and receive the same benefits as every other American while doing it? Isn't that the entire concept of "freedom for all"?

The problem with people like Sandra is that they see homosexuals as something different from themselves. Homosexuals are, to them, "freaks", alien creatures who can't possibly feel the way they do or be interested in a monogamous, loving relationship as they might. As long as they see "gays" as something other than human - something other than American - they will never change.

People such as this will continue to spread their bigotry - not realizing the hypocrisy of the stance they take. Shunning a group of people who are different, in the name of a God that supposedly has LOVE FOR ALL. Denying others the same rights they practice in a country that supposedly stands for FREEDOM FOR ALL.
