Minnesota lawmaker’s heart breaks because of gay marriage.

Who is the real victim in the gay marriage debate?  You may think it’s the gays who are afforded fewer rights than straights, but have you thought about the straight people like Rep. Peggy Scott of Minnesota who might actually have to…y’know…look at gay people?  Probably not, you fascist.

Look at what the upcoming pro-equality legislation in Minnesota is doing to poor Peggy’s heart:

“My heart breaks for Minnesota,” Rep. Peggy Scott told the Star-Tribune:

“It’s a divisive issue that divides our state,” she said, wiping tears from her eyes as she stood on the House floor after the vote. “It’s not what we needed to be doing at this time. We want to come together for the state of Minnesota, we don’t want to divide it.”

Scott belongs to a non-denominational Christian evangelical church that believes the Bible was written directly by God, believes in the Rapture, and believes everyone is a sinner by choice.

Oh Peggy, you don’t want the state to be divided?  Ok.  You and your ilk can just accept equality and we’ll all be united.

Oh…you wanted to unite the state by uniting against an appreciable portion of its citizens?  Um, that’s a bad way to unite the whole state.  Methinks “we need unity” is Republican code for “shut the fuck up”.

No.
