Dr. Erik Steele on marriage equality in Maine: "In the end, though, gay marriage is not about marriage or teenagers,
and it is not even about gays as much as it is about us. Over the last
250 years, Americans have slowly chipped away the bias and ignorance
used to deprive almost every American except wealthy, white men of
equal standing before the law. The right of civil marriage for gays is
about continuing that same march toward 'one nation, indivisible, with
liberty and justice for all.' You cannot oppose it without betraying
American values and the rights hard won for you by those victims of
prejudice in almost every family tree who fought in their time for the
rights we have in ours."

    Justice Scalia doesn’t look very healthy to me…nope. No, I’m not praying for his demise or anything–I’m a Christian!

    …just his early retirement, that’s all.

  2. John says

    Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign is DOA.

    California voted against gay marriage (twice).

    And because the mayor is tied at the hip to those failures, it makes him look like a one-issue candidate. Not to mention a loser. That’s a public image which is almost impossible to shake off.

    Huh, I wonder how that student thought that was an excuse? Anyways, I’m surprised I hadn’t heard anything considering the school is five minutes from my house, lol.

    Re: Student Assault

    Wow, that’s supposedly an excuse now? I could understand if the victim was constantly harassing the boy about it, but from that article it sounds like the boy’s temper went off on a completely innocent person.

    My, Clarence and Antonin do look so very unhappy in that picture! Is there anyone on this planet more miserable than Clarence Thomas? Scalia looks like he’s ready to leap from that chair if Judge Sotomayor so much as breathes on him!
