    You're damn right it is. I hoped everyone involved gets their asses sued big time.

    Reading that really pissed me off and actually brought tears to my eyes. How could anybody treat another human like that? I truly believe in karma and those that knowingly participated in doing this will reap what they sow...

    I didn't see a thread on it already posted. Can you give me a link to it or a pointer on how to find it?

    Thanks.

    Stories of human cruelty like this make me wish that I did hold some belief in perdition... :no:

    As I wrote in the other thread discussing this appalling tragedy, none of this would be an issue if gay marriage were allowed. Special rights? Bah!

    Exactly! I hope there is a special corner in Hell for those responsible for this. What the fuck kind of person wouldn't at least allow them to stay in the saming nursing home together!

    I hope this gets some kind of national press.

    Or better yet, if the govt took its nose out of the marriage issue all together.

    I was raised to understand that marriage is a religious institution, not a governmental one. I still can't figure out what in the hell government has to do with marriage...

    This is where the LGBT activists (yes, in a kind way) are getting it wrong.... It seems to be the word "marriage". It's freaking people out (mostly the religious right). The LGBT community is hell-bent on using the word "Marriage".

    Until we agree to call it "Civil Partnership", "Life Partnership", or what ever term other than marriage, we will not see our partnerships recognized at the Federal level in the states.

    I am an American, living in the UK. We have Civil Partnership here, and no one from the heterosexual communities give a toss; what they DO object to is the use of a word with religious connotations. Fine, let them have it.

    We could care less what you call it..... we just want the same legal rights as "straight" partnerships/marriages.

    This article made me so angry, I had to read it in two sittings....


    Cheers!

    This taken from Joe My God blog. "The full complaint is here. (PDF) Meanwhile JMG reader Rick, suspecting that this abuse was the work of evangelicals, uncovered this little biography of the wife of defendant Michael Brewster."............Religious wacks telling the rest of us what is good for us and they are worried about the government trying to take control.

    That was very sad. I wish Clay the best of luck in reclaiming what is rightfully his, but nothing can justify that.

    I am not gay so honestly cannot appreciate the cogency of this cruel ruling. If I remember my US history there was a time when black people were denied legal status marriage. If we had decent people in public office this sort of persecution wouldn't happen in the first place.

    Thanks for the link to the the actual court complaint. It makes the ballad of Clay and his lover more than just a story. Also, checking out Joe. My. God. I discovered that Joe also has a Holy Crimes section. From now on I'll probably just provide a link to that section of his blog. I appears he covers almost exactly the same criminal religious horrors I've been gleaning. Plus, Joe is extremely humorous.

    Yup, trust the christians of the world to destroy the peace, liberty, and freedoms of others in the name of their ideology. Truly a sad problem.

    That's why I quit going to church after having gone to 4 local churches, and they all were full of fascist bigots. After a while, I just couldn't put up with it anymore. I don't need to go to church to know that I'm living an ethical life. If God is everything we're told he is, then he knows I did the right thing. And if not, then there's no need to waste my time anyways.
