Take the time to read through. This is the most beautifully sarcastic thing I’ve ever read.

This is an oldie but goodie of the internet. The first time I ever posted this I immediately got a very angry message - “HOW DARE YOU EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO MARRY THE PERSON THEY LOVE” and so on. 
If you’re ever feeling irate about a post online and want to comment about it, at least make sure you’ve read more than just the title.

Religion and Gay Marriage

A video by John Green, 1/2 of the vlogbrothers and NYTimes Bestselling author. Perhaps most famously known for The Fault In Our Stars. 

I’m a big fan of John Green and he’s been getting a lot of hate on tumblr recently for reasons I don’t fully understand, though I recognize that many of the things that are getting people angry come without full context. 

He has always been very LGBTQ positive*, co-authors a book featuring several gay characters, and sponsors AFC Wimbledom which actively works to end homophobia. Aside from these, he’s involved in women’s rights and education and poverty and is generally trying to make the world a better place by using and acknowledging his privilege

*Examples of this can be seen in tons of his videos, but I like that linked quote in particular.

National Organization for Marriage ‘outraged’ by ‘illegitimate’ court rulings

I love NOM’s website. It’s so poorly done and it’s breaking news bring me laughter. “Dump Starbucks!” - Yeah, good luck with that. “10,000 Marched for Marriage!” - Can anyone find me a number of how many people were at the Supreme Court supporting the overturn of DOMA/Prop 8? ” 1,200,000 Stand With Us!”

Speaking of morning, what in the world is the nation’s leading manufacturer of breakfast cereals thinking?!
I never thought that by eating Cheerios for breakfast I would be supporting gay marriage. General Mills’ decision to pander to same-sex marriage activists has forced me and my family to choose between their food products and our conscience. As long as food is produced by other companies my conscience is going to win out over the desire for another bowl of Lucky Charms. Until they stop supporting this radical social agenda I must, in good conscience, look for substitutes that I can purchase instead of General Mills’ brands.
NOM News - “Betty Crocker Faces Boycott”

Quite frankly, something I find hilarious. Good luck with those boycotts NOM…

TEXAS: State Democrats Add Marriage Equality To Platform
The Dallas Voice reports: A marriage equality plank was added to the Texas Democratic Party’s platform during this weekend’s state convention in Houston. QSanAntonio has the full text of the marriage equality plank:
“Texas Democrats join President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in calling for and affirming equal rights including marriage equality for all Americans. We, along with our President and Vice President, recognize that same sex marriages should be valid and legal in America.
“Texas Democrats support President Obama and the United States Justice Department in recognizing that the Federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and in refusing to defend DOMA in any Federal Court proceeding. We call for the total repeal of DOMA.
“Eight states and the District of Columbia have now recognized marriage equality and have legalized same sex marriages.
“Texas Democrats support the full inclusion of all families in the life of our state, with equal respect, responsibility, and protection under law, including the freedom to marry. Government has no business putting barriers in the path of people seeking to care for their family members, particularly in challenging economic times. We support the repeal of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, the Texas Defense of Marriage Act and the Texas Constitutional Marriage Amendment and oppose other attempts to deny the freedom to marry to loving same sex couples.”
[snip]

The other big piece of news from this article is that the Texas Democrats elected a transexual national delegate. So, awesome all around for the Texas Democrats.

Proud of my state.
