It's not a coincidence that the corporate totalitarians (Bush, Cheney, Drugs Limbaugh, etc.) have chosen to attack same-sex marriage.
They actually don't give a damn about it, but they know they can divide the nation on cultural grounds. They have created two new classes: the 'unbekante' (unacceptable) Gays and the heroic SS (the religious nuts).
I just finished picketing Hinson Baptist Church in SE Portland. The churchgoers looked uncomfortable at my sign ("Civil Rights For All: No On KKK 36"), but that was not surprising. I was quite civil and said "good morning" with a smile to many of them.
However, I was a little surprised to see non-Baptists, with "forest defender" and "Nader" and "Kerry" and anti-Bush stickers on their cars, also displaying confusion and/or annoyance.
Can it be that THE LEFT DOESN'T GET IT? Where is the solidarity with the queer community? I am seriously worried.
