After The Party

Day dawns and the celebration begins to look like perhaps New Year's afternoon at the end of the parade.  Yeah, Proposition 8 was over turned, declared to be in violation of the fourteenth amendment to the United States Constitution.  And the fight goes on because still same sex couples are not allowed to marry in California.  Okay.  The Judge has to decide whether or not or when to lift the ban.  It may be tomorrow and it may be years from now.
What amazes me in all of this is the seeming inability of people to tell the difference between their religious beliefs and constitutional rights.
And what terrifies me is that this country is increasingly headed toward rule by religion and of course by religion I mean conservative Christians intent on making sure we all believe and behave exactly the way they do.
Be very careful.
