Oh, puh-lease. Peterboy is still alive and kicking and spouting his hateful nonsense in the name of his god. If there’s a better indication that there is no such thing as god, I have yet to hear of it.

I always forget that we, unfortunately, have to claim him. Of course, that also makes his reaction all the more enjoyable.

Odd. I could swear the heavens opened and a choir of angels descended singing a song of congratulations. But maybe The Peter isn’t part of God’s ‘friends and family’ plan.

Well, gee Petey LaB, it’s not like when you were seven years old and you really didn’t want to go to Aunt Mary’s second wedding and you HAD to because your parents MADE you.
And you HAD to sit in church for TWO hours and you couldn’t even go to the bathroom and your mother made you wear the suit with the pants that were getting a little too small for you anyway.
And you dreaded all the aunts and cousins that kept wanting to kiss and hug you and smother you.
But at least the cake looked really good.
It’s not like THAT Petey. Because you’re NOT INVITED.
And nobody gives a shit how you feel.
Nobody gives a shit about you at all.
Not a whole lot of people even know who you are, but for you having a tantrum now and then about other people’s weddings, other people’s marriages, and other’s people ability to take care of each other.
People, you don’t know and don’t HAVE to know.
The arrogance of YOU, little Petey. What’s it to you?

At least Peter acknowledges that 15 states have had the courage to defy God. As we see repeatedly, the courage to defy God is what’s required if we want to make the world a better place.

Someone should tell Peter that God stays out of politics.

I’d phrase it differently (defy our presumptions and comfortable assumptions about God) but I agree.

God made Her presence very much felt at my same-sex wedding. And if Porno Pete has a problem with that, well, it’s his problem.

2/3 of the world–the 2/3 of the world that thinks the Christian story is nonsense– has been defying god for nearly 2000 years, and god doesn’t see to have cared all that much.

But this– THIS!!!!!– is what is finally going to get the Holy Knickers into an incredibly uncomfortable bunch.

Petey dear? YOU LOST!!!!

Laurie Higgins and the IFI: YOULOST!!!!!

Maggie and Brian and NOM, Oh MY!– YOU LOST!!!!!!


Or perhaps something a bit more grown up.

Got some strong feelings about this, Ben in Oakland? :))

I thought I was being rather restrained. I guess I need an editor. :)

(Btw, November 18 is the 10th anniversary of release of the verdict in Goodridge v DPH. Also known as the Day Of Dancing In The Streets to some.)

This dude seems to be awful excited by what he calls other people’s “perversions.” Is it jealousy or what? God doesn’t seem to care who a person has sex with, only the religious people do because sex is useful to control people.

From what I have heard Mr. LaBarbera sounds like a bit of a ‘pervert’ his own self.

If I were a NALT Christian, I’d spread the word that fundamentalist Christians are perverts.
