Huh…I’m married. w00t!
What the heck? I’m getting married in a week? ::blink:: It’s been such a long time coming, and I can’t wait. It’s truly amazing to think that Darla and I could manage to meet from halfway around the world, fall in love, be together, and then stay together for five years, yet here we are.

Wait, that one is, shockingly, taken, so I won’t make it a link.

If you are, but you limit your "against" to disapproval, or even blanket condemnation, I’ll fight and die for your right to have those opinions, no matter how strongly I disagree (or agree) with them. If, however, you want to legally ban gay marriage based on your own backwards religious beliefs, I posit that you’re an un-American ignoramus whose values threaten the very fabric of the United States of America. If you are of that persuasion, however, you can at least be confident that you are Continue Reading →
