Put Your Discrimination Where It Belongs... On Your License Plate!
Via the about.com atheism blog, the Virginia House of Delegates has passed a bill to allow people to get special "Traditional Marriage" license plates bearing those words over a red heart and interlocking gold rings. This is the latest anti-gay move made by a state that passed an amendment not only forbidding gay marriage or civil unions, but also keeping gay couples from entering into contracts as well!
Once again, I must say that I am not surprised that no aliens have contacted us. I mean, here, in the most powerful nation on Earth, a nation founded on religious freedom and equality, a nation that claims to be a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world, we have a bunch of people who were told by an invisible man in the sky and his son (who are both the same entity) who was born of a virgin and executed 2000 years ago in a remote corner of the long-fallen Roman Empire that it is wrong to partner with someone of your own sex, and therefore spend their time making up laws to keep people from doing that instead of important issues like feeding and housing the poor or making sure the elderly are well-cared for.
Not only can these Virginians not mind their own damn business, but they care so much about what other people do in the privacy of their homes that they have to have a special license plate to say, "Traditional marriage is good for me, and it's good for you too, fags!"
