Long May It Wave

Rainbow flag

Let’s hear it for SCOTUS!  As of this morning i have, despite his best efforts, all the rights that Antonin Scalia enjoys.  “Ask the nearest hippie”.

On the other hand, in the wake of calls to ban the Confederate flag, fine Christians like Bryan Fisher are demanding that the Rainbow flag also be banned.

Well, if what Christianity stands for is not the love taught by Christ but rather unrelenting hatred of gays, then yes, the Rainbow flag is anti-Christian.  And i’ll wave it proudly.

Even though for the last twenty years i’ve listed my sexual orientation as “Retired”.

    This morning, I’ve been reading some of the snippets of opinions from the dissenting justices, as well as comments from politicians. Many of them can all be summed up as “I’m dismayed that I can no longer impose my specific view of marriage on others.” Oh, there’s talk of “we took away the people’s right to decide this with laws; that’s not democracy,” but that’s an argument that I don’t agree with. I heard a sensible rebuttal to it, in that the writers of the Constitution considered some rights (equal protection, etc.) so fundamental, that they deliberately wanted to exclude them from the majority-voting “democratic” process. Specifically so that in case a disillusioned majority should ever be in power, it would be severely limited in its ability to restrict the rights of all. That makes sense to me.

    My favorite, from House Speaker John Boehner: “All human beings are created equal by God and thus deserve to be treated with love, dignity and respect. I am, however, disappointed that the Supreme Court disregarded the democratically-enacted will of millions of Americans by forcing states to redefine the institution of marriage. My views are based on my upbringing and my faith. I believe that marriage is a sacred vow between one man and one woman, and I believe Americans should be able to live and work according to their beliefs,” Boehner said.

    Gee, didn’t he just make the argument of his opponents, with his last sentence?? Of course he did. But again, what he really meant was “according to MY beliefs.” Thank the founders that he doesn’t get to decide what’s right for all of us…
