From the AP:

"The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry into the Constitution," said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (news, bio, voting record) of Massachusetts, whose state legalized gay marriage in 2003. "A vote for it is a vote against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law."

Hatch responded: "Does he really want to suggest that over half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?"


Yes. Yes he does. Because you are. And it's about time more people started pointing that out.

I continue to find it amazing that there are people out there who can possibly think discrimination against homosexuals isn't bigoted.

This is the last major perjudice and it's just pathetic how desperate they are to keep it. I just hope that when my girls are grown, they will look back at our society with the same agahst that we look back on our parents gen and racism.

Yep, all bigots in their own right. GRR.

If we're going to hold people to the Bible's standard of living, then over half of this country is going straight to hell. Do not pass go, do not collect your porn/alcohol/common-law partners or whatever else you feel justified in sinning about. Grr again.

Oh, look. My senator. What a gem. Color me proud. Except not so much.

This is also the guy who called peaceful protestors, including mothers of servicemen who had died in Iraq and Afghanistan, "nutcakes." He's all about the respect. Enjoy--he's not going anywhere.

Anyone who supports discriminatory legislation and then chafes at being called a bigot is more ridiculously stupid than I have time for.

I have also decided that if I have to live in a state where I am represented by two Republicans, I would much prefer Maine.
