March for Marriage 2014: Be There, or Be Square

March for Marriage 2014: Be There, or Be Square June 18, 2014

I wanted to go, but I didn’t have the money.

You see, I bought a piano and I sine die-d for the last time. That left me without $ and energy, both at once.

But now, I’m wishing I had gone, even if it meant — which it did — breaking the piggy bank.

They need a Democrat there to balance things out. They really do.

What am I talking about?

The 2014 March for Marriage.

You can still go. If you have the coin, or you live on the East Coast, you can take the day off work and go. If it was within driving distance, or even one-shot airline travel distance, I would go ahead and do it.

But I have to change planes and spend a small fortune in travel/hotels to do this. It’s such a safari that next year I’m going to build a whole vacation around it.

But you who live within driving distance, you can go with no sweat. Just throw some baloney sandwiches in the cooler, gas up the car and go.

Because we need you there.

Because marriage matters.

Because we’re at the beginning of this fight, not the end.

Tomorrow.

Washington, DC.

At the headwaters of the fight to re-convert our culture.

Be there.

  1. Am I welcomed if I support your right to marry your husband and my cousin’s right to marry his boyfriend? 😉

  2. I can’t imagine how they’d keep you out, although you might feel lonely. 🙂

    You are, however, welcome to discuss your ideas here, anytime you want.

  3. I am square because I think this is damaging to our country. I think it is unkind and hateful.

    What exactly is the march for traditonal marriage suppose to accomplish? Do you want all the gay marriages that are legal in some states to not be legal anymore? Do you think we should go back to the way it was 50 years ago when gay people had to hide it for fear of retribution?

    Why do you care whether gays get married? You are fine with the Church teachings if you aren’t getting gay married.

    I have asked these questions before and haven’t gotten answers.

  4. I’m not sure that I agree we’re at the beginning of this fight. It probably isn’t the end either, but I think we’re about 80 years too late to be at the beginning.

  5. I care because it’s not right for children to be raised outside of families. If two men want to call themselves married, I don’t really care. If they want the State to recognize it in giving them children, I care deeply.

  6. Sus: I just returned from Istanbul, Delos and Versailles. Trust me, you don’t want a return to “traditional” marriage.
