I say, more power to them!

You’ve all heard how San Diegan Miss USA 1st runner-up, Carrie Prejean, slammed gay marriage infront of the gayest man in the world; lost her crown and become the kind of celebrity she wouldn’t have hoped for.

Our instinctual response to this piece of news, no doubt, would be to defend and rally after her, had rallying been needed. Because you and I are Ethiopian. We neither believe in gay rights nor feel women should stand alone on stage speaking their minds; not to mention how Lev. 18:22, Lev. 20:13, Lev. 20:13 & Rom. 1:26-28 has clearly indicated how detestable lying next to a man is. Political-incorrectness, the one right we can afford to exercise!

Alas, this Ethiopian does not see eye to eye with this kind of conservatism — for once. Not because she can’t be a bible-totting Christian who reach for the good book when in need of guidance and comfort if she tried. Or due to her tendency to see things the way them “ferenji”s do, as Tazabi aptly observed (and expect her to apologize for, I guess :roll:), who believe gays, too, are humans with as much right to misery as the rest of us. Or because she feels being gay is something you are born with so can’t be helped. She neither believes nor feels such nonsense!! Women chose to becme gay when they get tired of men while men are forced into gayhood because somebody messed up with them when young. Neither should be encouraged, nor allowed to adopt kids. Or so she thinks.

/mode {change} + personal pronoun = first person singular

Why, then, am I pro gay couple entering the unholy state of matrimony?! Because I hope allowing them to marry each other will be the first step to making gay men keep their hands off our kids (that’s how men become gay in my country anyway). If there is anyone who knows of any reason why the Rev. Shnorr should not join two men (and two women) in lawful marriage, please speak now or forever hold your peace.

The blogger tries to think outside the box, or wonder why she sometimes can't.
