Warning: Institution of Marriage Under Attack


Oooh.... I see what the conservatives mean. These two look pretty darned scary to me.

Sigh.
"In San Francisco, Del Martin, 87, and Phyllis Lyon, 84, longtime gay rights activists, were the first and only couple to be wed on Monday, saying their vows in the office of Mayor Gavin Newsom before emerging to a throng of reporters and screaming well-wishers."
As I read elsewhere, these women fell in love when you could lose your job, be arrested, and be sent for electric shock treatments for being gay, lesbian or any other kind of sexual suspect. Oh... wait... you can still do two of those things in the United States, and the third in plenty of countries around the world.
Go read about it here.

Then, write your Senator and Congressional Representative to get on the stick about this as a federal issue. It's time. It's past time.

You know my husband and I have been very worried since Monday! What will become of us????????

Sorry for the sarcasm. It annoys me to NO END when I hear of the "threat" to marriage.
