Well I’ll be damned

Well I’ll be damned

If it isn’t looking like a relatively good day to be pro-gay and anti-“religious” right hate. Of course, it’s always a good day to be pro and anti those things, but what I mean is:

1. In the Texas Legislature Senfronia Thompson, a black representative from Houston, recently spoke against that body putting a anti-gay marriage measure into the state constitution.

She said,

“Members, I’m a Christian and a proud Christian. I read the good book and do my best to live by it. I have never read the verse where it says, ‘Gay people can’t marry.’ I have never read the verse where it says, ‘Thou shalt discriminate against those not like me.’ I have never read the verse where it says, ‘Let’s base our public policy on hate and fear and discrimination.’ Christianity to me is love and hope and faith and forgiveness — not hate and discrimination.”

And a lot more. Then, of course, they passed the amendment. This is what I mean by relatively. But, there is reason to take heart–and it’s coming from the seemingly most unlikely of places…

2. The Kraft Foods company, not just content with featuring that promoter-of-the-homosexual-agenda Spongebob Squarepants on their labels, have issued a clear, unambiguous statement about their commitment to diversity and the fact that they will not knuckle under to criticism from the “religious” right for it.

This may be the coolest thing the Kraft Foods company has done since they stopped sponsoring “The Great Gildersleeve.” Damn it, I feel the need to go buy some baloney and pasta…
