The Sky is Falling.....for Some
For some, California State Supreme Court's ruling on May 15, 2008, about same-sex marriage
means the end of the world as they know it. Many of them believe in Armageddon and ought not to feel unhappy about the end of the world since they are assured of ascending to heaven when the day arrives. Apparently, that is not good enough; they want punishment, while they are still on earth, for those who just want to live their lives without encroaching their values, hopes, and principles on others. So they are gearing up for battle to deny civil rights and happiness to gays and lesbians in the name of god. How god feels about all this is not known. If he is up there the chances are that he does not give a hoot about who is marrying whom.

The Dormouse: You've got no right to grow here.
"It's certainly a temporary victory for those who favor same-sex marriage," Ron Prentice
, steering committee chairman of ProtectMarriage.com, said of the decision invalidating a state law defining marriage exclusively as the union of a man and a woman. Prentice's coalition is seeking to overturn that ruling.
Alice: Don't talk nonsense. You know you're growing too.
The Dormouse: Yes, but I grow at a reasonable pace, not in that ridiculous fashion.
