    it’s the parallel to the gun debate:

    the pro-gun folks, like the anti-equality folks, make it clear that they’re not operating in the same universe.

    the anti-gays are insane. the anti-regulation gun nuts are insane.

    meanwhile, every on the right side of history is calmly using facts and logic.

    wow.

    They should be locked up in a padded room and medicated.

    Also note the spelling mistakes on most signs. “inmoral”, “difine”, “unnecesary”. Tells you all you need to know

    I know that feel. This is MN 2 years ago at the start of the horrid election we just went through. I feel bad for them if this goes to a popular vote.

    And LOL at the people crying and rolling on the floor and babbling nonsense. You need help. I know plenty of Christians and have never seen one of them roll on the floor and babble and cry.

    Wow, so many crazies all together in one place! This is probably what they felt like seeing a Pride parade (you know, back before Pride parades were corporate events).

    This video reminded me of the mass orgy in True Blood…I forgot which season that was when that lady had them all under her spell. LOL this is just nutty.

    I GET SO UPSET when I hear the argument – “humans procreate through heterosexual union/if we deviate the from the natural order we cease to value creation of life/etc” – People – the gays are ALREADY HAVING GAY SEX and they will continue to have gay sex until the end of time – whether or not gay marriage is legal. Legalizing gay marriage is not going to keep straight people from reproducing!

    You know, I often read online comments on how primitive Africans are relating to LGBT rights. And then I see this mob in the lobby.

    Really, we have the same people here; it’s just that they are less numerous and only run some of the governments here. Sometimes, though, it feels like they are becoming increasingly numerous and powerful.

    I take comfort in the statistics of gradually increasing public support for LGBTs, and decreasing religiosity.

    As always, the minority of Bible-believing Jesus-worshipers think they can have their way just because they have BIG MOUTHS. In “The Rapture,” the entire bodies of Bible-believing Christians disappear. I’m waiting for “The Partial Rapture,” in which only their BIG MOUTHS disappear.

    “Normal” and “natural”, those people in the corridor??
    By the way, I thought speaking in tongues in the Bible simply meant that people preaching the gospel to people speaking different language could speak their language and be understood, NOT open one’s mouth and speak whatever whine comes out.

    We had the same 2 minute limit, with alternating pro and con. It’s horrendous. And always two lesbians with their kids followed by wingnuts who say gays shouldn’t marry because they practice anal sex and can’t reproduce. Hello! Did you see who came before you?

    We didn’t have the speakers in tongues, though. Not so crazy in VT!

    Fun facts about R.I. :

    Little Rhody is the most Italian state in America [New Hampshire just 100 miles to the north is the most French, Maine the most English/WASP, Massachusetts the most Irish]

    Little Rhody is the 2nd most densely populated state [New Jersey, just 100 or so miles south of R.I. is #1, bordering state Massachusetts is #3]. They all have population densities comparable to England or the Netherlands, the most densely populated Euro countries.

    R.I. [and bordering state MA] both have huge Brazilian and Portuguese population, biggest in America along with N.J. Massachusetts southcoast, New Bedford, Providence,R.I. is heavily Portuguese and Italian. But in recent years there’s been a big influx of Hispanics, and many are evangelical Protestant Christians.

  13. ratbastard says

    Oh…and prostitution is legal in-doors in R.I. Providence is only 40 miles south of Boston, so it’s a major location for prostitution of all kinds and clubbing.

    Thanks for the info, Ratbastard. Especially the ethnic info. (I didn’t know that about New Hampshire, but the best French restaurant meal I ever ate, in the U.S., was in NH !)

    @eyeroll,

    Ratbastard only sees things through bigoted lenses. Since Rhode Island doesn’t have a large African American population, he has to focus on something else. Even if that something else is wholly irrelevant to the gay marriage debate, like in this instance. Incidentally, his “fun facts” are incorrect. Rhode Island’s four main ethnic groups have long been Irish, Italian, English and French, and historically the main political jobs (2 congressmen and 2 senators) were divided among these four groups. Irrelevant I know, but at least it’s irrelevant and accurate.

    Watching this video(except for the testimony of that young boy!) makes me ashamed to be a Rhode Islander. I’ve been to this circus side-show many times, and even testified a couple times in past years. It’s like descending into the bowels of hell. For the last fifteen years, the same obtuse and nasty haters, spewing the same lies and nonsense, has over-run the statehouse. It doesn’t help that the Catholic Church still has a death grip here, and the good local Bishop makes it’s feelings about gays well known. Despite all that, I’m encouraged that each time one of these bills is introduced, we get a little closer to passing marriage equality. I hope this year is the one that we finally do it.

    Ah! The stench of christian bigotry wafts through the morning air. Watching this video of those evangelicals makes me hope that the lunacy of their actions is imprinted in the minds of rational people. It is time to end this “dictatorship of believers”, once and for all, by any means necessary.
