We Wouldn't Want to Offend the Dead

Opposed to gay marriage? Then don't marry someone who's the same sex as you -- problem solved. That stale joke is my credo.

I absolutely do not get why some people think they get to be the boss of other people. It's not just the gay marriage issue, of course. For instance, my neighbor is a real alpha dog and tries to run all sorts of things on our street that are none of his damned business.

Anyway, some people in California are upset because Ellen and Portia got married and others like them have and will.

But one man there offers the most illogical reason for opposing gay marriage yet:

"I've never stumped before, but I want to be a part of this [campaign supporting a ban]," Bumgarner said. The retired insurance executive and devout Mormon said his late mother would "turn over in her grave" if she knew that gays and lesbians could marry.
Well, that's different, isn't it? Ban gay marriage immediately! We wouldn't want to offend the dead, now would we?

Heavens to Mergatroid! Two people wanting to committ to each other out of love! What nonsense! People aren't supposed to do that. Next they'll want to be considered next of kin and be in a position to help ensure the rights of their loved one. Gosh! What's this world coming to? (Hope you can tell that this is seriously sarcastic.)
Love, V.
