The Kiss

Bittersweet

My mood is classically ambivalent.

I'm thrilled about Obama's election.

I'm saddened by the fact that 52% of the electorate apparently want to erase our marriage.

I can respect that this is a matter of deep conviction for some of them. I hope that our public presence as a committed, loving couple may make some people rethink their positions.

My anger, however, is reserved for those supporters of 8 who in their zeal to push the amendment through, resorted to lies to trick people into voting for it.
If they are so certain their religious interpretation is righteous, how could they be so blatantly sinful as to bear false witness?

I'm not locking anyone out of my friends-list over this. I will confront them with that question if I discover they voted yes on 8.
