Gay Marriage – Truthdig

It’s a beautiful day….

….and I am sure that people have been dancing in the streets today…happy, like this chick who was at the John Mellencamp show on Tuesday:

Of course the churches here in Banjoville will be aflame on Sunday. You should see the hateful shit spewing from the “christians” on Bebe’s Facebook…these kids from her school. Let’s just say she has a few less friends tonight. Like this one who is on a mission trip in Haiti at the moment…

If you can’t read it, the bitch says:

I’m thankful that here in Haiti I’m only surrounded by poverty and hunger and orphaned children instead of the REAL issue that is plaguing America right now; same-sex marriage. Oh, wait…

I mean, how much hate can this girl have…at 16? No, don’t answer that. We know the answer.

Bebe is fortunate, her two best friends are positively affected by the decision today. One is her “gay friend Jerry” whose simple response to the news today was to happily say, “Bebe, now I can get married one day!”

Her other friend who is half-black Haitian and half-white, lives with her mom and her “auntie” (who is the mom’s girlfriend.) This gives reinforcement to the dynamic of this family, especially living LGBT and being black in Banjoville.

    Love the flag, but “Let Them Eat Cake” wins it for me.

    Good for Bebe. I had to do the same. It’s mainly the “bitches” I had to delete. They are fanatical and ignorant, and they go around teaching hate and that it’s okay to discriminate. I can remember when I was a young, and living in New Orleans, and hearing all the arguments from my parents about “mixing” with blacks. It an embrassment, and I am so glad the courts put in place laws that were developed to remove these kind of “mixing” prejudices.

    It’s exactly like the way the South has been throughout history. Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, and South Carolina, and everywhere in between. Funny thing they still are the most destitute states in the country. Still unwilling to change, still teaching children hate, from the white churches to the KKK, they are burning with hate.

      May they burn themselves up with it. The rest of us choose love and kindness, and treating each other as we would want ourselves treated.

    A pathological refusal to see any shred of good in Obamacare

    This got drowned out by the roar of the U.S. Supreme Court’s thunderbolts. But our state’s insurance commissioner just went to Congress and told them some news that, had they been anybody but members of Congress, they might have found really interesting.

    One: The share of people in Washington State with no health coverage now is the lowest ever recorded, Mike Kreidler testified.

    Two: The rates insurers have requested to charge for policies in the individual insurance market next year are the lowest price increases in the 14 years Kreidler has been in office.

    Good news, right?

    The committee didn’t think so. Many members of the U.S. House Ways and Means subcommittee either didn’t believe Kreidler or just appeared to ignore what he was saying. “You made a statement that things are looking better,” one Republican congressman fumed. “It doesn’t look like it’s looking better to me.” You’re presenting an alternate version of reality, another GOP congressman challenged Kreidler. Premiums in the congressman’s district were soaring by 30 percent, he said. “Washington must be the only state” where this is happening, joked a third.

    Our state was one of the first to set up an exchange. Maybe that’s had something to do with better results.
