Life and Love Feb. 14, 2007

It's the Hallmark Holiday known to us Americans as Valentine's Day. It's a day that focuses on Love. The Beatles said it's "All You Need..." in some song they wrote. Diana Lynn said, "Love is a very astigmatic condition" in the 1942 film "The Major and the Minor". Of course, in it Ginger Rogers plays a woman posing as a pre-teen to get child's fare on a train and then Ray Milland falls in love with her, so i'm not sure that makes the right point. But i digress.

Love can happen between any two people. As much as homophobic wankers want to believe that it is reserved only for them and their kin-folk, it is not true. Some say Love is what makes the world go round. Some say it's what connects us with the eternal. Some say you have to take it when you can get it. Some say it and Hate are very closely related, and that's why it can be so difficult to keep a relationship going. Some say it's truer than the Red White and Blue. Some say "God is Love". Ah but i must digress a second time.

Don't let the Christians legislate their unenlightened, hateful, and selfish version of Marriage. All who can Love should be able to Marry.
