The love that must not be named

Vermont passed a law allowing same-sex couples to marry this week, and Iowa's Supreme Court allowed it under Equal Protection clauses in the Iowa Constitution, so clearly we know what the next thing to happen is: Black cats and white-and-grey cats will be allowed to marry. Oh wait, the U.S. Supreme Court already ruled on that one. Sort of. That whole "consenting adult" thingy seems to interfere a bit there, though...

Now: Fear the Rainbow! My favorite part has got to be the lightning.

The fake lightning, that is, flashing just off to the side, a cheap 'n' cheesy special effect that momentarily lights up the actors' faces in the most sweetly melodramatic way as they stand there against the dark 'n' stormy backdrop like devout Christian zombies, delivering delightfully weird and wooden lines about being openly terrified of those openly terrifying gay married people.

Yes, it's merely another series of strange, alarmist, deeply homophobic ads from yet another seething anti-gay group you've never heard of!


  1. It best be alright.
    We've got a black on e and a two tone brown one that curl up in the recliner like that all the time.

  2. My black and white cat and Snowshoe Siamese were all snuggled up this morning.
    Oh, the scandal!

  3. Let us not forget that not only are The Mighty Fang and Mencken different colors, but they're also both male! Double the scandal! :).

  4. What is the big attraction to 'fear' ? So many people seem to be afraid of everything today . I admit my Mom was a fearfull person but my Dad was anti-fear and fortunately I too am anti-fear . I refuse to live in fear ; of gays , of sickness , of other races , of poverty or of any of the other stuff that have so many people fearfull , every day . Stuff happens , sure , sometimes very bad stuff but to live in fear of the unknown or even the future or even change itself is not to live at all !
    It's disgusting to me to hear these people openly preaching fear especially of "Te gays !!! "
    " Be Vewy , Vewy skeered " Dipshits !
