A Divider, Not a Uniter

Bush has gone ahead with his plan to urge the legislature to create a constitutional amendment to deny gays and lesbians the right to marry.
He calls it "defense of marriage" and says it's to "protect the sanctity of heterosexual marriage."
He also called legislation designed to hamstring existing environmental protection laws "the Clear Skies Initiative," so we know "defense" and "protection" are code words for something entirely different.
Whatever he calls it, it's a plan that effectively creates an amendment that legalizes discrimination based on sexual orientation.
That's orientation, not choice. If it's a matter of choice, I suggest the male heterosexuals in the Bush administration choose to suck a few dicks, and then explain to us how easy it is to make a choice.
This discriminatory initiative has been used to attract votes and contributions from the extremist, right-wing, hate mongering core of Bush's supporters. It's another fear tactic for which the Bush administration has become famous.
If you are gay or know and care about any gay people, you must take a stand and contact your legislators TODAY and voice your objection to this initiative.
This is ridiculous, it's hateful and it's wrong.
If you allow this to go unchallenged, you have become a part of the problem, not the solution.
Contact your legislators and complain, please.
When the terrorist attacks of 9/11 occurred, Bush said, "you're either for us or against us."
Bush has proven to be against gays and lesbians, against basic human rights and against the rights of homosexual adults to enter into marriage, with all its rights and responsibilities.
He's proven he's against us.
And we must prove that stance will have consequences.
Please comment below and tell us what you've done to help scrap this blatant attempt to discriminate against millions of tax paying Americans. Inspire us.
