"Hot button social issues have come alive again. ... The

In the not-too-distant future these people, who have exerted all this energy and wasted so much money fighting against the so-called "gay agenda," are going to wake up in a world of problems so deep and complex, we'll be fortunate if we can pull ourselves out of the mire.
Whether two people of the same sex decide to marry has absolutely nothing to do with the day-to-day lives of those who staunchly oppose anything resembling equality for all Americans. What does impact us all, and what we should be discussing includes:

The War on Drugs
The War in Iraq
Jobs Going Overseas
The Housing Bubble
Election Reform and other voting issues
The Health Care Debacle

If the fundies want to make the "hot button" issue about who I've chosen to spend my life with while expressing little or no concern for real issues, then pardon me if I don't shed a tear or have a fucking ounce of sympathy when your job is outsourced overseas, you cannot afford health coverage for your family, your sons and daughters are blown into fragments in Iraq because "it's better over there than here," or your president digs us into an economic hole of eternal darkness.
So, go ahead; base your motivation to vote on the NJ decision. Then carry on about your pathetic lives enjoying nonsense crap like this, pop open a piss-weak cold one, and see if I give a shit what you with your ignorant blind faith have allowed to happen.
