CRUEL, SHAMEFUL, DISGUSTING
Just some of the words that come to mind when thinking, even for a second, of this gay marriage ban. To see the President of the United States propose codifying discrimination...well, I expect nothing less of this president, but a little more of the office. But, really, it's like a dozen of these things a week.
Inasmuch as much of what Bush does is about devaluation and deformation of language, John Scalzi has a very good point on this blog about the marriage bigots.
Look, none of this is okay. None of this should be considered business as usual. Not the war in Iraq, not the attacks on civil liberties, not the proposal to build a wall at our borders. The descent into fascism is just a few steps away. What do you think things were like in any fascist state a few years before the boot came down? The only difference here, and right now, is our creature comforts.
