I'm a long time lurker but just had to respond to this with a short story about something I did a few years ago. First off let me state up front I
admit I am a hypocrite, in that I want things here on earth to be a good place for all to live but on the other hand I've come to HATE so much all
the hateful evil people in the world that I contradict myself a lot. Also flames will be used to roast marshmallows and ignored, while calm,
intelligent disagreement will be welcomed by me.
So that said here's my tale.
A few years ago a co worker of mine was crowing in glee about how prop 8 here in CA was going to "stop all those disgusting heathen sinners" (You
can guess where her 'tude was coming from yeah?) and on and on for about 5 minutes before I couldn't take it anymore.
I walked up to her and informed her she was a hypocrite and had no right to be so gleeful about depriving consenting adults the right to be married
and be happy just like she was. She spluttered a bit and asked me what I meant, so I pointed out to her she was a hypocrite at least 3 times over, I
told her (I didn't get into ALL the atrocities just the highlights specific to her)
1) You are a woman and as recent as 1920 you weren't even allowed to vote(among other nasty things done to women) by ignorant people just like
2) You are black and as recent as a 148 years ago you would have been a slave owned by people as ignorant as you.
and 3) you are married to a white man and as recent as 1967 you would have been arrested or hung or god knows what all for wanting "TO BE HAPPILY
MARRIED TO THE PERSON YOU LOVE."
I said, "If it wasn't for people like me who feel that everyone on the planet should have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as
long as they "Do harm to none" You wouldn't be a successful business woman married to a really nice guy, who was allowed to vote for such a
disgusting bill in the first place."
She sputtered some more and said "But those evil f****ts (I kid you not she said just that) ARE harming me!!! It's against god and evil and will
ruin us all!!!"
I just looked at her and said "Seriously? If your little book says all that I think given the 3 reasons I just told you and more that I didn't, that
you need to rethink your stance on your god and "his" book, or if you truly believe that book to the letter, you'd better divorce your husband, put
yourself up for sale and never vote again cause god was used in all those instances to validate those practices which were even more evil and ignorant
than disallowing consenting adults to have a happy life just like you with the person or persons they love. Cause if love is now evil we ARE all
There was more but that is the gist of it. If you have an issue with gay "marriage" call it a civil union or come up with something cute, I don't
care, but seriously everyone needs to get off their high horse and quit following exactly what TPTB want you to do by hating and judging and bullying
each other to keep us all distracted from the real horrors being committed against ALL of us.
I used to be SO angry at everything that's been happening in our world, but now I'm just tired of it. I'll just be me and help who I can and enjoy
each day till the SHTF and then I'll take some of em with me when they come for me heh. No concentration camps for me thanks.
