Equality gives us wood
The traditional gift for a fifth anniversary is something made of wood.
So what are giving Mass. gay couples? Well we're think that the wooden cross that's used as a bully club to protest their love might be an appropriate offering. This year, we're taking it back from its hijacked state and extending its symbolism to all who wish to embrace it!
After five years, loving same-sex couples have more than proven that their committed partnerships are not going to destroy faith and freedom. They have more than demonstrated their ability to be just as "righteous" as their heterosexual peers. And they have shown that "gay" is not the diametrical opposite of "god," and that CIVIL marriage does not interfere with religious ceremony. So with half a decade's passage, it's time we demand not that the loving same-sex couples justify their love, but rather that the anti-gay resistance justify the lies and fear-mongering that they employed to no avail. And if they can't? Well then it's time that they gift the state's gay couples with our suggested peace offering so we can all move on with our lives.
Happy fifth anniversary, Massachusetts. Grow up, Massachusetts anti-gays!
We married in Mass. 4 1/2 years ago. We'd rather have a brand-new wood floor, please and thank you. :-)
