From Harvey Fierstein, via master gardener Ed:
The Bush administration spends billions spreading freedom abroad while at home it devises legislation to deny equal rights to gays and lesbians. What is it with you people, anyway? Are you so insecure about the way you handle marriage that you're scared gay folk will show you up? Trust me, we will make as much of a mess out of matrimony as you do. Just give us a chance.
Read the whole thing here. You can read it for free, but you will have to register for the Times if you haven't already. And registration is also free, fyi, and well worth the minute it takes to establish.
And, my though? If you don't want gay marriage, don't have one. Simple as that.
