Pass a paper bag, I think someone is hyperventilating. This hysterical post is on Preserve Marriage Washington’s Facebook page. PMW is the NOM-controlled group working with Washington’s Roman Catholic hierarchy in an attempt to repeal Washington’s marriage equality law via Referendum 74.
Genderless Marriage the Only Legally Recognized Definition
This new, redefined version of marriage as a genderless institution would be the only legally recognized definition of marriage in Washington. Such a radical change in the definition of marriage will produce a host of societal conflicts that government – exercising its enormous enforcement powers – will have to resolve. Citizens, small businesses and religious organizations whose own beliefs, traditions, morals or ethnic upbringing are at odds with the new definition of marriage will find themselves subjected to legal consequences if they do not act according to the new legal orthodoxy.
Grab your children and bar the door, Armageddon can’t be far behind! After all, just look at the chaos reigning in the states that already have civil marriage equality: Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Iowa and New York, as well as our nation’s capital, the District of Columbia. To demonstrate the rampant repression happening there, here are today’s headlines from newspapers in those states:
New Haven, CT: Stratford woman’s struggle spurs legislation aimed to protect religious symbols in condo doorways
Boston, MA: Rick Santorum suspends bid, clears path for Mitt Romney
Portsmouth, NH: Budget cutters have dim view of street lights
Burlington, VT: Vermont lawmakers hear from utility merger proponents
Dubuque, IA: Study: Baseball complex feasible
Buffalo, NY: Savoring a magical moment at Coca-Cola Field
Washington, DC: Santorum’s exit shifts GOP race.
The situation looks dire!
