Special Consideration

Our legislators believe Gay Marriage needs special consideration. A vote on it's merits.

Health Care? Nope.

Public Education? Nope.

Gay Marriage? Yup.

Tonight, we continue to rip the fabric of moral society apart. We are in North Adams at the Porches Inn. Every year we take the kids on the long winter weekend to swim outdoors in a heated pool, go tubing down snow packed hills and see the new exhibit at the Mass Museum of Contemporary Art.

Downright heathen stuff.

The first year, there was a giant, pink intenstine. I mean, two stories high and winding all through the exhibit hall.

The next year the boys walked through one of the exhibits- it was torn pages of a book scattered on the floor. Heck, it looked like their room until the museum guard came over and quietly said, That's the artwork. Please don't step on it.


I'm telling you, it's enough to add a point or two to the rapture meter. Yes, there is an actual meter.

Because you don't want to be caught not ready for the rapture.

In the car tonight, as we pulled into North Adams, Zachary said, I wonder what they'll have this year.

Last year was the weird carnival, Ben said.

Yeah, it was cool, Jake said.

Walter started to explain the exhibit is the largest they have ever tried to install and it may not be ready but the boys kept talking about the museum.

Our family is frightening. When all seven of us showed up at the 99 Restaurant tonight? We needed a big booth AND a chair at the end.

The two love birds in the hot tub aren't having much of a romantic moment now that Walter has Ben and Zachary in the pool. And it's 10PM! Beyond bad parenting, he's playing, laughing and splashing with them.

Better make sure we have a vote on this kind of horror. Better be sure there isn't too much happiness happening for anyone who doesn't fit the Christian Conservative image of perfection.

As Martin Niemoeller said so well...

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me--
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Let us be careful when we decide to take a majority vote on a minorities right. Let us be careful when we close our eyes to 'someone else's problem.'

Two Moms, Two Dads, No divorce.

Give us a break.
