|The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypose|
I love this headline "Gay Marriage Arrives in Britain - No Flooding Or Winged Horsemen Of Death, So Far (PICTURES). See here:
Yes folks, Great Britain is yet another country that has recognized the inevitable, marriage between same sex couples is NORMAL. What always amazes me is how happy everyone is when the dam finally breaks and the same sex couples rush to marry. FINALLY!
At the present time I am estranged (temporarily I hope) from my family (two brothers and one sister-in-law) because I dared not to subscribe to the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" version of gay "lifestyle" in my civilian life. They all know and have known I was gay since I came out in 1964 but I think this year was a bit too much for them when the Christmas card I sent out had a picture of me and Bill at our wedding.

That probably went over the line for them. I'm pretty sure it probably went over the line for some of my relatives too because a paltry few of them showed up at my bi-annual family reunion. Well you know folks, it is THEIR problem, not mine. I am tired of this. So tired.

But I am happy that there will now be thousands of same sex couples in England who will no longer be treated as pariahs and "less than."

But then we go back to this country where it is up to the state to decide. You know, the old "put it up to the voters." Well, this brilliant Irish ad puts into focus how ridiculous and unfair too many part so this country continue to be behind history. But you know folks, it is inevitable that one day this country will look back at this time and wonder "how could we have been so unfair?"
