'Protect Marriage Sunday' behind them, Mass. anti-gays begin 'My Holier than Thou Poo Smells Like Roses Monday'

by Jeremy Hooper

   In an event that they had the audacity to call "Protect Marriage Sunday," Massachusetts churches from various denominations yesterday embarked on a one-day marriage-banning extrava-bullsh*t. As part of this queer nuptial-eliminating day of worship, religious leaders urged their congregations/worshipers/parishioners/what have yas to sign a petition that could possibly lead to the elimination of same-sex marriage in the state, if the nonsense successfully jumps all the necessary hoops between now and 2008.

While those shenanigans were going on inside the houses of worship, gay rights supporters led by the group MassEquality gathered outside the churches to protest this church/state-uniting tactic, thoroughly ruining the brunch plans of hundreds. And that, my huevos rancheros-craving friends, is just wrong.

Be sure to keep an eye out in the coming weeks, when we hear the state's churches will launch "We Also Have a Moral Opinion about Tort Reform Thursday" and "Don't Even Get Me Started on Abortion Saturday," while the gay rights cool kids will continue commemorating "We're Really Not The Enemy, So Please Stop Fighting Us So That We Can Join Forces And Fight True Societal Ills" Year.
