NC writes discrimination into constitution; Taliban, ayatollahs approve

Tonight, voters in North Carolina went out of their way to pass an amendment to the state's constitution to ban marriage equality; it's already banned by state law.

"And the point -- the whole point -- is simply that you don't rewrite the nature of God's design for marriage based on the demands of a group of adults," said Tami Fitzgerald, head of the main anti-equality movement.

History scholars might be surprised to read Ms. Fitzgerald's words. Interracial marriage was not part of 'God's design for marriage,' as per the north Carolina constitution, until it was 're-written' in 1971.

In other news, the Taliban and the Iranian ayatollahs both praised North Carolinians for their judgment.

I'm sorry but blaming "God" for your own bigotry so you don't have to take ownership of it yourself is pretty cowardly, if you ask me. Have the intellectual honesty and moral courage to take responsibility for your own attitudes, whatever they may be. Don't blame God because you're too lazy and sinful to treat other humans decently. That's your fault, not His.

The Bible also prohibits:

- shaving (Levictus 19:27)
- cursing (Ephesians 5:4)
- football on Saturdays (Exodus 20:8)
- eating lobster (Levictus 11:10)
- eating pork (Levictus 11:7)
- cotton/poly blends (Levictus 19:19)
- associating w/ women who are having their periods (Levictus 15:19-20)

But I guess those are not as important.

Try telling people in the Bible Belt that college football should be banned on Saturdays!
