    I cannot describe the religious fundies and this organization here on this website. The R rating doesnt support the language.

    I can't bring myself to condemn ALL Southern Baptists on this issue, simply because I've known several in real life who are fighting for our rights...and that thread that was posted a few days ago with a Southern Baptist preacher fighting for our rights as well.

    I guess that's what I get for not clicking and reading the link.

    "We deny that the effort to legalize 'same-sex marriage' qualifies as a civil rights issue since homosexuality does not qualify as a class meriting special protections, like race and gender," the resolution says.

    HEY FUNDIES: the reason being gay requires protection is because of hateful, violent bigots like YOU. And the unhinged, redneck nut-jobs you encourage.
    WE NEED PROTECTION FROM YOU.

    How funny (as in sad) that the secondary point of the article was the fundies saying "look how progressive and non-scary we are now."
    Um, compared to what?

    Oh boy. I feel like I am living in the 60s still. We should feed them fried chicken every night.
