Sure You Can Go Get Married. Right After You Finish This…

Obviously, I can’t verify this, but at Not Always Working (where readers submit stories from work), there’s a story of a sailor who wanted to get married on a Friday afternoon

Everyone’s going to gag when they hear it and that’ll force them to stop supporting gay rights!

Judge Gives Green Light to Freedom From Religion Foundation’s Lawsuit Against the IRS for Ignoring Pulpit Politicking
