Why is this even a question still?

I was roaming around the darker recesses of the internet when I stumbled across this infographic.  I thought it might be of some interest to you (click to embiggen).
As you can see it's a flowchart that was compiled from the comments on a Facebook poll.  It details the assorted arguments over same-sex marriage.  This particular argument is one of the things that makes me contemptuous of conservatives in general and republicans in specific.  Not that liberals/democrats are any better.

What it comes down to is, under our social contract (i.e. the U.S. Constitution) no person has the right to force another to live by a moral code not of their choosing.  An ethical code yes, but not a moral one.  That means that if I choose to marry a woman, a man, an eighteen year old or an eighty year old, it's no bloody business of yours.  So long as I violate no municipal, state or federal ordinance, I may do as I wish.  Any attempt to infringe on that, is a violation of the social contract.

Plus it really pisses me off.


The Soundtrack of My Life

Well, I no longer have an iPod, but I can list the top 15 songs I've been listening to pretty easy.  So, taking a cue from Tam and Wing, I offer up the soundtrack of my life, or at least the highlights of the last couple of months.

When i looked over the list I was kinda amazed, not by what was on it, but by the order.  I'm certain I'd been listening to Punk more often than this.

I Wonder if His Name is Church?

You can't make this stuff up folks.
