I’ve noticed that the tactic has changed in the fight over marriage equality. One consistent theme has always been about the children.
But I do know one thing. Knowing that homosexuality exists, or that people of the same sex can be married is pretty much accepted by kids. And that’s what the religious bigots are concerned about.
They’re concerned that you’ll see greater acceptance and tolerance of gay people. This is already becoming an issue. Just here in RI the age group 18 to 29 years supports marriage equality by an overwhelming majority of 82%. Sure that means 18% of them don’t support it but when you think about it, that tracks with the percentage of religious dipshits in this area.
And I can tell you, more of those same young people are embracing the concept of atheism too. The churches and the bigots are in for a rude awakening very soon.
And it won’t come a moment too soon for me.
