Does this mean we can accuse gay marriage opponents of dhimmitude?

As Watergate criminal Chuck Colson wrote in October, 2004:
One vital goal of the war in Iraq, and the war against terrorism, is to bring democracy to the heart of the Islamic world. Our hope is to make freedom so attractive that other Muslim countries will follow suit. But when radical Islamists see American women abusing Muslim men, as they did in the Abu Ghraib prison, and when they see news coverage of same-sex couples being "married" in U.S. towns, we make our kind of freedom abhorrent the kind they see as a blot on Allah's creation.

Preserving traditional marriage in order to protect children is a crucially important goal by itself. But it's also about protecting the United States from those who would use our depravity to destroy us. We must not give up simply because the Senate voted down the FMA. It took William Wilberforce and his allies 20 years to shut down Britain's slave trade; it will take years to win the battle for traditional marriage.

Not a damn thing. However, I do link to Improbable Research. Look in the humor section on the sidebar.

A bloody Middle East war. A crappy economy, especially in the Midwest. American jobs being outsourced faster than Ross Perot can say "giant sucking sound."

And we have our collective panties in a wad because two guys (or two women) want to cohabitate in a legally-binding fshion.

Wake me when this nightmare is over....
