Maine Biggots Rally Against Marriage Bill

2619096945_c5ed468161“Opponents of same-sex marriage turned out in force at a rally at the Augusta Civic Center as the Maine Legislature prepares to take up a bill to legalize such unions. The Sunday night gathering was organized by the Family Research Council, a lobbying group that champions traditional marriage as a foundation of family life. The group estimates that nearly 1,000 people turned out at the rally.

The council’s president, Tony Perkins, said same-sex marriage is a national battle. He told the crowd that whenever people in a state are able to speak out, they say marriage should be between a man and a woman.”[AP]

    Let them speak out, and let’s make their names totally public so their children can be ashamed of them when this country gets over it’s religion-fueled bigotry.

    Ugh, I’m glad I wasn’t working last night. If any of them had come to my coffee shop in a nearby bookstore, I might not have been able to keep myself from throwing hot coffee in their faces. And I like my job (and my insurance) so that would have been bad. Satisfying, but bad.

    Tony Perkins ran for the senate in Louisianna in 2002 and scored a whopping 10 percent of the vote (in Louisiana !!), nough said.

    That picture is priceless. Now I want a lobster roll for lunch.
