Oh, Joy.

Today, Gay Marriage steps back into the spotlight.

On the heels of terrorist activity in Canada and the deployment of the National Guard to the border, our country will be turning it's eyes and ears to the issues that really matter. Namely, keeping gays from committing to one another in monogamous, loving, legally binding relationships.

The given reasoning for the Gay Marriage Amendment: activist judges have taken the power away from the people - leaving no choice but to push a federally-based definition of what marriage is.

The fact that a federal amendment to the meaning of marriage is, in fact, activism at the highest level seems to have escaped those oh-so-intelligent folks; who honestly believe that whether gays get to call themselves "married" is culturally devastating.

I'm not sure who makes me want to throw a fist faster; those illogical, passionate, religiously motivated folks who scream about homosexuality's "sinfullness," or those dispassionate, overly-logical types who sit back and, without concern or empathy, allow this sort of madness to be perpetrated by their extremist fellows.

Either way, I'd advise staying out of my way. I'm a pretty even-keeled fella, but both of you make me want to vomit.
