I live in St. Louis, MO and went out of my way specifically to vote against this amendment, but apparently Missouri is still too full of Bible-thumping homophobic rednecks who are for some reason threatened by the idea of two members of the same sex being legally married.
We value marriage here in Missouri? Then where’s the amendment to outlaw divorce if marriage is so damn special. Care to quote the divorce rate in Missouri? Marriage isn’t any more special here than anywhere else. How the FUCK does two men or two women getting legally married de-value marriage? I just cannot see the logic here and I’m ashamed of my state for letting this bullshit become part of the state’s constitution.
The vote was in favor of the ban by a margin of 2-1. I’m disappointed (especially since I went out of my way specifically to vote on this issue and to vote in favor of the gambling issue - which also lost yesterday, just not my day for voting) and ashamed that this state is still so fucking threatened by homosexuality.
If two men or women want to be married, who’s getting hurt there? Where’s the fucking crime? How does that weaken a marriage between a man and woman? I just don’t understand the fear of homosexual marriages. For me, the state of Missouri officially sucks ass today.
