Audio: Marriage bias is 'Exxxxxcellent,' says Mr. Burns

by Jeremy Hooper

BurnsThis is Maryland Delegate Emmett Burns. Why is he frowning? Well, that would be because D.C. gays are likely to start marrying in the coming weeks, and Burns is all kinds of pissed that some of those loving couples might want to take their unions back home to neighboring MD for some good old fashioned equality. And who can even think of smiling when there are decent, tax-paying citizens who wish to claim their piece of the American pie?

This from Focus on the Family:


*AUDIO SOURCE: Targeting Marriage Supporters in Maryland [Focus On the Family]

Ya know, it's enraging that these folks even refer to the ability to have out-of-state recognition as a "loophole." Because in truth, the only reason why we gay folk have too even look for an opening is because of the fairness-wringing noose that they call DOMA (and that we call unconstitutional)!

But if this is the game they insist on playing, then loopholes we will continue to find. In their logic. In their laws. In their exclusive vision for society. Because when it comes to what is principled, reasoned, and RIGHT, any entrance is worth utilizing. Any loop is capable of tying a knot.

Your thoughts

But I bet radical anti-gay activist Burns doesn't get upset when gay Americans pay taxes. And I bet he's happy to spend our taxes, isn't he? But what he doesn't get is why should we pay the same taxes as heterosexuals when we don't get the same rights as heterosexuals?
