Philip Spooner, a lifelong Republican and WWII veteran, makes the case for gay marriage at a meeting in Maine. I can really picture my grandfather, who was also a Republican and WWII vet, saying these exact words.
Here’s a cute clip that’s been going around the Interwebs lately. What I love about it is how Sesame Street defines marriage as two people who hug and kiss, live together, love each other and are best friends. [Insert Bert and Ernie joke here. Ha!] Does that scare you, NOM? The Sesame Street definition is simple, and probably the best one I’ve ever heard. We are never too old to learn lessons from Sesame Street. Thank you, Jesse and Grover! (PS- How adorable is Jesse?!)
There’s a new anti-gay marriage ad out there, and it is terrifying.
I’m not scared of the storm. I’m scared of NOM. I’m scared of their bad actors (and they are actors. See their audition reels here. Thanks, QT!). I’m scared of their bad writing (ex- “There’s a storm gathering. The clouds are dark, and the wind is strong. And I am afraid.” You are afraid of weddings? Seriously?). But most of all, I’m scared of their message of hate and discrimination.
You know what I think of when I think of NOM?
A lot less scary than some crap a dark storm and a bunch of lies (click that link and read what HRC says.), don’t you think?
