In Case You Cared

Via Balloon Juice, who got it from Town Hall, a site that doesn’t get linked here because ick.

“We will not obey.”

That’s the blunt warning a group of prominent religious leaders is sending to the Supreme Court of the United States as they consider same-sex marriage.

“We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross that line,” read a document titled, Pledge in Solidarity to Defend Marriage. “We stand united together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve.”

“While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross,” the pledge states.

The signees are a who’s who of religious leaders including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, National Religious Broadcasters president Jerry Johnson, Pastor John Hagee, and Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse.

Try to imagine within your wildest dreams how much anyone cares what a bunch of sniveling bigots think.  All this tells us is that they know how irrelevant they have become to the discussion.

And how exactly will they “not obey”?  Not get gay-married?  (On behalf of gay men everywhere, may I say “Whew!”)  Open a bakery or a flower shop?

One bark on “In Case You Cared

  1. Exactly. What will they do? If, say, they’re a hospital that refuses to recognize the marriage of a patient, they’re opening themselves up to one fuckova lawsuit.

    I like what Obama said at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. He said that Rick Santorum had announced he would never attend a gay wedding, and gays and lesbians across the country said, “That won’t be a problem.”
