d2d: I think (hope) I'm done crying

So Carol called to console me about Prop 2, and I fell apart.

I have a visualization that is keeping me from despairing . . .

I'm sitting outside Red Lobster, throwing rocks at people as they leave. When they get angry, I act dumbfounded that they should be upset, seeing as Leviticus also forbids the eating of shellfish.

Ludicrous, but it's keeping me from crying while I'm at work. I watched a documentary of Dietrich Bonhoeffer this afternoon (a theologian who conspired to kill Hitler) and I'm watching Schindler's List for the first time ever tonight. I'm trying to gain some perspective on this whole thing.

The majority of America hates who I am and what I believe in. Who wants coffee?

That's a beautiful story. I'd love some coffee. :-)

Anyway, I also wish I had had the chance to vote against Proposal 2, here in Florida (surprisingly) we didn't have such an amendment, despite the fact that our governor and the President share parents. I'm insulted for you - I feel like people are throwing rocks at me, too, because I have gay friends (yourself and many others) and I love them and support them and think that they deserve every legal right that is given to me as a heterosexual.

Marriage is an institution of the church, and should stay as such - it should have no value within the system of government. Any two people who live together and support each other should be allowed the opportunity to unite legally without repercussion of any sort. Isn't that what democracy is all about - equality under the law?
