Dramatic license: Randy still unhappy with CA paperwork

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  Good As You Images  Good As You Images 200807081143-1-1On Monday we told you how the words "bride" and "groom" will be put back on California marriage licenses, with marrying parties having the option to select the labels if they so choose. Leave it to one of California's most vocal anti-gays, Randy Thomasson, to make a stink out of what should be a crowd-pleasing move:

"This escalates the war for marriage by officially offering the label of 'bride and bride' and 'groom and groom' to homosexuals," said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families. "For the first time, it means two official 'brides' and two official 'grooms,' not just one bride and just one groom like it used to be. What are children to think? This craziness is another reason Californians should vote yes on Proposition 8."
...
"By announcing before the election that the marriage form will be changed after the election, the Schwarzenegger administration is confusing voters to think that some of the widespread problems caused by homosexual 'marriages' have been solved, when they haven't," said Thomasson. "The media is widely reporting that bride and groom have been 'restored' to California's marriage license. The Schwarzenegger administration is engaging in sleight of hand to depress voter turnout for Prop. 8."

"What are children to think?" Well in the off chance that a child directs mental energy towards this civil licensing document, he or she should certainly that government certificates should accommodate all available participants. And if you teach a child anything different from the current law allows, than you are the one who is "indoctrinating" on this issue.

Oh, and as for the Schwarzenegger administration's supposed "sleight of hand": Those who are desperately trying to sleight the wedding-baned hands of gay and lesbian couples really shouldn't be throwing stones. Because the only problem that has followed California's young marriage equality is the possibility that a tyrannical majority will roll it back!

Your thoughts

Why is the argument ALWAYS 'what will the kids thing' 'how will this affect those poor fragile children'.

Ask the kids with gay parents. They'll tell you that YOU'RE the problem and YOU'RE the ones that cause their family stress. Not their gay parents.

These people don't care about the kids.

I'm pretty sure the kids are thinking, "Am I going to be able to afford college? Are my parents going to be able to afford to insure me/themselves? How long are we going to be in Iraq?"
