Rage Thread.

Senate votes down same-sex marriage bill.

In other news, Senate also opposes electricity.

According to Dictionary.com the definition of a ‘right’ is as follows;

1. in accordance with what is good, proper, or just: right conduct.

Though scrolling down, I happened accross the following,

5. most convenient, desirable, or favorable.

I couldn’t help but laugh at this. When we talk about basic human rights,
(Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.)

 On December 10, 1948, did the General Assembly of the United Nations refer to the word ‘right’, meaning ‘in accordance with what is good, proper, or just’? Or did they really mean ‘most convenient, desirable, or favorable’.

Apparently the ‘
Senate‘ interpreted it as the latter.

Words fail me when I think about this, really? In 2010? Are we still doing this. I just don’t understand.  IMO, the Senate was really just opposing controversy. I mean jeez, we couldn’t even agree on day light savings in WA, let alone giving same sex relationships the right to have a validated marriage. They are basing this on the original Christian* ideology of a marriage, you know the whole man, woman thing. Seriously, get with the times my friends, Christian ideologies of
anything lost most meaning a long time ago, I think it had something to do with the fact that they were telling everyone that Jesus died and then was raised from the dead (see Zombie Jesus)

In a multi-cultural society like today how dare they have the audacity to say that what a gay person believes qualifies for marriage is void?

I wish I kept up my mad English skillz so I could word my opinion properly, I think working here has dumbed me down. Seriously. Like right now I am trying to concentrate on this and someone is
just talking at me. Gah!

Anyways, basically I**, on behalf of all the gays and lesbians that had their hopes up, like many times before, am pissed off.

Getting fed seafood last night in my supposable vegan Sizzling Japanese Bean Curd may have also contributed to my mood.

*Please note that when I entered christian, abc check said it was incorrect, until I changed it to Christian.

**Please also note that I am
straight.
