Well, Isn’t that Special

rainbow-flag

San Antonio was one of more than 100 cities across the nation to host suffer a Proposition 8 protest yesterday.  Right smack downtown in front of San Fernando Cathedral and the county courthouse, lots of  rainbow clad, GLBTG…XYZ’s got together and generated a little testosterone with their outrage.   

Texans have had their own marriage amendment on the books since November 8, 2005.  It passed with a 75% margin, but before you get too complacent, remember the Texas Constitution has about as many amendments as a dog has fleas.   We’ve got the public support and numbers now, but don’t rely on a document that is notoriously weak to protect traditional marriage for long.    Scratch hard enough and long enough and the mindset of even the most conservative voters will eventually get worn down.  Minds change, laws change.  And before you know it, the Valentine’s Day weddings on the steps of the Bexar County Courthouse are going to be much more “colorful”.

    21st CENTURY PROTEST has begun!

    The National Equality Tax Protest ~
    Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

    Will the IRS begin to value our human rights when 30,000,000 tax forms are withheld?

    Will heterosexuals who “support us” do more than just wish us happy thoughts and good luck?

    Will heterosexuals who do NOT support us start to care about our tax dollars once they shoulder MUCH MORE of the US tax burden?

    Stay Tuned, Tax Payers….

    Couldn’t be much more than we’re taking care of now, but gosh I think we’ll manage. Oh, BTW, when times get tough are you going to support across the board budget cuts, including federal funding for AIDS research?
