RE: Prop 8

If you've been visiting this blog for any amount of time, you should be well aware it isn't all that serious--let alone political.

Although that's also usually the case for another Seattle-based gaming blog, drinkingcoffee
, that blog's proprietor Bard Gallaway put all silliness aside yesterday to chat about Wednesday's overturning (courtesy of U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker) of Proposition 8, the voter-approved ballot measure that banned same-sex unions in California.

"What's it to me? I'm not gay. I'm happily married with two kids. Prop. 8 and its implications don't affect me even a bit, but I care about it because equality for all is important to me, and all means ALL," Gallaway wrote. (Go here to read his post in its entirety.)

"There would be a firestorm if someone tried to pass a law saying that people in wheelchairs couldn't marry, or if people of different races couldn't either," he added. "Half the anime fans in America would march on the capital and burn down the White House if it was illegal to wed Asian girls."

If I were at all religious, I'd respond to Gallaway's comments with, "Amen, brother!" Oh, hell, I'll say it anyway.
