Kris Mineau's Call to Action Against Iowa Equality


This is a baaaad week for the haters!

Kris Mineau, holier than thou leader of the infamous Massachusetts Family Institute is calling for all opposition to contact Iowa legislators in an urgent attempt to convince them to pass legislation that would deny marriage equality once again.

Perhaps Kris hasn't read the decision handed down from the Iowa Supreme Court detailing the many reasons for its unanimous ruling.

Perhaps Kris hasn't been able to keep up with the state of affairs in New York, New Hampshire, Hawaii, Maine, California, New Jersey and of course Vermont.

Perhaps Kris forgot that he didn't have the pull to influence legislators even in his own state, it's a real wonder why he thinks he can pull one over on others as an outsider.

Regardless of these facts Kris and his supporters can't deny reality much longer; the tide in America has clearly changed. No longer will people stand by idle while unfounded fears are passed for facts against innocent neighbors without question. Equality is being fought for on so many fronts that the big money organizations just can't spend their money fast enough to stamp it out like they did temporarily over in California. Kris Mineau is no Moses, Equality is not the Red Sea, and the tide of public opinion will not be turned back by bigots branishing baloney, not even in Iowa.

I'm so glad things are changing. This is such a great time to be alive, to witness such things.

Makes me smile.

I'm smiling, too, but I am changing my attitude (slowly) about Kris Mineau and his ilk.

I once though of them as bitter enemies, but now I see them as impotent fools, tilting Quixotically at windmills.

And I feel pity for them.

Don't lower your guard just yet John, there are still a lot of people that can be easily fooled because they have no contact with GLBT people to teach them otherwise. I would have never guessed Prop H8 would have happened... in california. They get their Capital "C" back when I get my equality back. For now they are diminished somewhat in my eyes.

On the flip side I agre with Jelly, this is a great time to be living in. We owe thanks to each other, we are part of that change.

John said...

You're right, of course, John.

I'm getting a bit too excited.

John Hosty-Grinnell said...

No John, you're right too; this is worth getting excited over. We are seeing the change we want to see in the world, and our opposition can't understand.

Please everyone, also check out this link and give comments. A member of the opposition needs to understand what marriage really is about.
