    Senate majority leader endorses gay marriage ban

    My favorite quote is from the very end:

    "Generally, I think matters such as sodomy should be addressed by the state legislatures," Frist said. "That's where those decisions with the local norms, the local mores are being able to have their input in reflected.

    "And that's where it should be decided, and not in the courts."

    M'kay. Last I checked, state legislatures passed laws.

    Courts interpret laws.

    So far so good.

    So, if a legislature passes a law about sodomy, the court should interpret it. Right?

    Obviously, Frist's training as a doctor didn't prepare him for this complicated law stuff...

    It's all moot, anyway. Any time a politician says they support a constitutional amendment to for anything, they're basically saying, "OK. I give up. But I'm going to back this meaningless amendment that has no chance of passing just to cover my political ass."

    Meanwhile, in Canada....

    What a great GayDay it was on sunday. Perfect slightly cool weather and everything.
    The two lawyer guys, Michael Leshner and Michael Stark, who overturned the marriage laws here and were the first gay people to get legally married, led the parade in a big white limo with a 'Just Married' sign on the back! The cheering was intense! I'm so glad i got to see them, i would have screamed out that they were heroes or something but to tell you the truth i was all teary with pride i was in no shape to talk.
    Followd by 10 or 20 other couples, some carrying american flags that said: 'Just Married- Thank You Canada!'
    Almost started crying all over the place.
    What a marvelous time to be here.

    the newspaper says:
    "More than 250 gay couples have been married at Toronto City Hall and at local non-denominational churches since the ruling, including about 30 American couples."

    But i'm the most excited about this- Fred Phelps is coming HERE! We finally got his attention! That walking pile of festerting trash behind godhatesfags.com is on his way here now!
    His press release about it (watch out, it's a PDF) is the most brilliant thing i've ever read. I feel smarter just by looking at it.
    Highlights include:

    "WBC withh sue Canada in the United Nations & the World Court for violating religious freedoms -- worse than CHINA!"

    "WBC to picket the monstrous sodomite whorehouse masquerading as a nation - CANADA- ....God hates Canada and her fascist pink swastika government!"

    shit, can i get that on a t-shirt?

    I just went to that website and looked at his protest links....hehehehe.....it appears that he is holding almost all of them in KANSAS CITY!!! I never knew this fuckhole was in Kansas City. That's funny.

    Too bad I don't have adobe acrobat. I am curious what other insanity would spew forth.
