This Saturday, I have the absolute privilege and honor of marrying NF. I also have the legal right. It’s a mother effing shame not all of us do. (And yes, worthy of the swearing.)
I’ve donated to Lambada Legal every year.
In honor the of the right I’m going to exercise, I’m urging you: what will you do to ensure Civil Rights this year?
If you’re on the fence, read this.
And remember what Martin Niemoller said:
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
And then get your ass in gear.
Great Post! This makes me extremely sad…especially the fact that Australia is even more behind in their thinking than America 😦
Really? How so? It’s pretty unbelievable in this day and age, huh? Damn shame.
