Now, I had originally typed this post in a fit of rage over this exchange I had with this woefully misguided girl on whether or not gay marriage should be recognized. She even went so far as sending me a message on Facebook telling me that she’s “sorry that I have been rejected by the male species so many time that I had to turn to a woman.” She also said that every lesbian she met is “ornery, angry, and honestly straight up ugly.” But, just to make sure that I knew that she was mostly okay with gay people, Ellen DeGeneres is her favorite talk show host on Earth.
When I pointed out that I was, in fact, NOT a lesbian and that I simply supported the happiness of others, I got a very lengthy, very sincere apology. I am not certain as to whether I would have gotten an apology if I WAS a lesbian, but – nevertheless – I have to say that I think this girl is just one of a billion hopelessly brainwashed religious zealots who would rather take efforts to see others put down, rather than work on improving their own station in life.
Below is my original post…
I have spent the last 12 hours engaging in a pissing contest with some Mormon vag that I don’t even know. Would you like to know why?
Because she’s an ignorant bitch. That’s why.
Here’s the back story: A friend of mine who lives in California and is gay posted his sarcastic displeasure of proposition 8 – which prohibits same-sex marriages from being legally recognized in the state of California – on his Facebook page. He didn’t swear, he didn’t call anyone any names, he just made a comment about how proposition 8 had been upheld for several hours and the divorce rate was STILL 76%.
So, some little bow-headed snatch decided to comment something to the effect of “I wish there was a ‘dislike’ button. Seriously.”
The first stone had been cast.
She then went on to talk about how she was just trying to protect what is “right” and how her family had been egged and had rocks thrown at them because they had “good morals.” Okay, we never discussed exactly what her morally superior family was doing at the time of the egg-and-rock assault, but I am guessing that they were probably out somewhere where they shouldn’t have been, cramming their morally perfect Mormonism down the throats of the very people that were affected by prop 8.
She also pointed out that “Homosexuality is NOT about love, it’s about SEX.” Well, Homophobia is not about LOVE, either, sister…
Since this is my rant, I am going to go ahead and tell her (and every other self-righteous hate monger) HERE what I can’t tell her on Facebook: I feel sorry for you. You have been completely snowed by your church elders into believing that it is okay to be hateful because it is what God wants. You have no right to judge anyone else’s beliefs or decisions if they do not directly impact you. You are not gay and you are married. Proposition 8 cannot be less about you, so why is it so important for YOUR beliefs to interfere with someone else’s happiness? Perhaps being gay IS a choice. It is not the choice that YOU made, so what possible difference does it make?
It is people like YOU that take pleasure in spewing your own brand of religion-fueled intolerance. This particular individual is Mormon, and since we know that the Utah Mormons have spent an inordinate amount of money and effort SUPPORTING Prop 8, we’ll have to throw them all under the bus. Mormonism isn’t even a real religion. It’s a cult and you are all brainwashed. Based on your beliefs, it is okay for a man to take numerous wives to elevate his status in Heaven. Women are servants to their men. And, this is my favorite, since BLACK PEOPLE are the children of CAIN, they were banned from holding priesthood in the LDS church and therefore banned from the temple. That makes you all racist. I guess that I shouldn’t be surprised by your equal intolerance of same-sex couples. Do you think God condones that sort of intolerance? My God doesn’t, that’s for sure.
Wow…kind of sucks having your shit laid out for judgement, doesn’t it?
Fortunately, your God suddenly realized his mistake about 25 years ago and gave the Grand Poobah of Mormonism a divine revelation that, “Hey, we should stop being so shitty to black people.”
The Mormon Church realized that it just can’t continue with it’s absurdly outdated beliefs and practices, because it was incorrect, hateful, and unconstitutional. This kind of sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
My advice to all of you is to shut your fucking mouths. You sicken me with your contempt of other people’s happiness and basic rights and your insistence that you represent the moral gold standard by which others are measured. Just because you are irretrievably trapped in your contrived little world of dutiful misery, does not mean that you get to project that same misery and intolerance on the rest of society. You point out that “Prop 8 is about protecting the definition of marriage.” Well, wrong again…Proposition 8 is protecting the initiative, rather than the actual definition of marriage. That means any initiative that is passed in California that overturns Proposition 8 will be given the same consideration.
It WILL get overturned.
The whole lot of you can feel free to suck it… I will pray for you. Nothing personal, of course.
