Hey 'all. (raises right hand)... I am me, and I am not gay. (lowers hand). That said, my "adjenda" crosses that of the gay/les community on occasion, because of marriage issues (tradition vs. law vs. religion, etc.). Here in the Midwest where I am, the voters of Missouri recently passed what they believe to be a ban on gay marriage. What the actual amendment says is that a marriage to be recognized by the state of MO, shall be between a man and a woman. That de-facto bans man+cat, woman+dog, man+man, etc. The pendulum of this issue has been swinging back and forth, harder each time. One way was the Mass. gay marriage recognition, the other way was the MO gay marriage ban. I think it's all going to come to a head sometime in the next four years (regardless of dem or rep in White House). We all need to act together, and to do that, there are some things the gay community needs to get together on (and get together with other groups concerned about protecting "marriage" from the government). What can we do to work together?
