Only a few days left. The 400,000th care package will go out this weekend. An excellent group of volunteers dedicated to helping our troops. This is especially important at this time of year with Christmas only 16 days away. If you can spare a few dollars, please give generously!

Would George Eliot have Opposed Gay Marriage?

When I read the passage I quote below (from her essay “Madame de Sablé” in Selected Essays, Poems, and Other Writings), it struck me that she just might.  If you don’t get why these words might indicate an opposition to same-sex marriage, then you have little understanding of the serious arguments against extending state recognition of the institution to include same-sex couples.

So, please try to figure out why I typed up this passage so you can better understand my point and their argument.

Without further ado, George Eliot on the complementarity of the sexes:

Let the whole field of reality be open to woman as well as to man, and then that which is peculiar in her mental modification, instead of being, as it is now, a source of discord and repulsion between the sexes, will be found to be a necessary complement to the truth and beauty of life. Then we shall have that marriage of minds which alone can blend all the hues of thought and feeling in one lovely rainbow of promise for the harvest of human happiness.

Today Is A Day Without Gays… Sure.

This is perhaps one of the dumbest and childish ideas I have ever heard.   But I’ll give it to the Gay Leftists, at least they aren’t calling for people to burn down Mormon churches (yet).

Day Without A Gay

Day Without A Gay seeks to shift our strong feelings about injustice toward service! Let’s fight for equality by out-loving those who would deny us rights. Call in “gay” on December 10th (International Human Rights Day) and volunteer for your local LGBT and/or human rights organizations.

This site allows the LGBT community and our allies to be active in the search for service by posting and searching volunteer opportunities. We will not sit at home on December 10, 2008. We will offer love and support to those who need it most, the way only the gay community can!

Did you know that today was also International Human Rights Day?  Nope, me either.   Tell me — why aren’t the American Gays protesting the history of gay hangings in Iran today at the Iranian Embassy?

Not sexy enough — better to call in sick to work and yell at Mormons, I suppose.

I will bet you anything that the hotel desk will be fully staffed by The Gays when I walk downstairs in a few minutes.  Yep, you betcha!  <wink>
