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?

I too would love to help with the Red Lobster tract. However, It would be more effective to cover more red lobsters, therefore I nominate myself as the Southeastern Mi representative and will cover as much ground as I can here.
I am very depressed about prop 2 also. (however I just found out today by reading your journal). I do have to admit though, I'm not surprised. The people proposing it did a wonderful job of keeping it hidden. Nobody even knew about it. Therefore when they were faced with voting on it they reacted without any information and only on their feelings. Which is absurd because I'm sure most people voting on it are heterosexual and it really wouldn't effect anyway. The way I look at it, who really cares about what happens behind others closed doors. It's not like if prop 2 passed there would be floods of gay couples sharing sex in the middle of the streets. All it did was give everyone equal rights. As I recall we already went through this in history, except it was with african americans and women. Eventually, people will crawl out of the hole that they live in and take off their rose colored glasses and wake up to see that equality and happiness for all is the only way to live life. (If you can't tell I voted against prop 2).
I love you Stewart and miss you terribly.
