Apparently we punish those who disagree with us.

In a post yesterday, NOM points to an article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune that asks this question:

Same-sex marriage supporters assure us that redefining marriage is no big deal.  “How will my same-sex marriage hurt you?” they ask, expecting the answer to be “it doesn’t.” Don’t believe it.

Well, knowing this, I wasn’t surprised when I announced my engagement last January that of the 5 married co-workers who sit next to me at work, 5 of them immediately called up their lawyers and filed for divorce.  What was shocking though was that I don’t even live in a state where gay marriage is legal. They had all assumed that since they lived in a state where gay marriage was not yet approved, their heterosexual marriages would be safe.

The reality of course is that none of that is true. None of my co-workers have filed for divorce. NOM states that marriage is for making babies… well my heterosexual co-workers have been fulfilling their duties admirably. Of the 5 married co-workers that I sit next to, they have a total of 21 children and one on the way (ok, one of the co-workers has 12 kids, but still)

There is simply no way that gays getting married could put an end to that.

The rest of the article goes on to describe how we gays will punish the NOM crowd. But all of their points boil down to “if we accept public funds, we can no longer preach our hate! Boo hoo!”
