It’s Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day sucks.  Restaurants are crowded, single people feel like shit, and if I set aside one day out of the year to treat my wife/partner extra special that means my game has fallen off the other 364 days of the year.  If you’re celebrating it, fill your boots, but it’s not my thing.

Meet Cedric Hatcher, a Birmingham Preacher who went before city council to complain that marriage equality infringes upon his rights.  It is a rant so detached from reality, so overflowing with pouting and hate, and so over-the-top that even some of the councilman can’t help but crack up: Hoo boy.  God looked at all the citizens [Read More…]
