It’s about love

I’m not a big fan of Keith Olbermann, but sometimes he does something really good – sometimes he is profoundly good. This is one such instance.

  1. I love Keith Olbermann.

    Hey, if you can do anything about this commenting interface — my god, I can’t even see what I’m typing. It’s light gray and it’s teenie tiny.

    Brian, who lives in Southern CA, says that Prop 8 was marketed heavily and pretty dishonestly, tying passage with freedom of speech and other civil rights issues. Signs didn’t mention gay marriage, but rather mentioned these other issues. Hopefully that is why it passed — because people didn’t know what they were voting for. Not that it is a very happy thought that people would vote without understanding what they’re voting for, but I think more pleasant than the idea that people in CA would vote against gay marriage.

  2. Hmmm… I hadn’t tried the commenting interface. You’re right, the type is smaller, but on my screen it’s not light and I can read it easily without my glasses. But I’d rather see it larger. I also did not intend comments be moderated. Right now they are. i would rather leave them open. I know there’s some place I can adjust that – I’ll give it a try.

  3. Well, I’m with Olberman – I don’t understand Christians and why they think this endangers their marraiage – not to mention why they are so opposed to love.

    Writes the NYT today:

    First approached by the Roman Catholic archbishop of San Francisco a few weeks after the California Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in May, the Mormons were the last major religious group to join the campaign, and the final spice in an unusual stew that included Catholics, evangelical Christians, conservative black and Latino pastors, and myriad smaller ethnic groups with strong religious ties.

    Shortly after receiving the invitation from the San Francisco Archdiocese, the Mormon leadership in Salt Lake City issued a four-paragraph decree to be read to congregations, saying “the formation of families is central to the Creator’s plan,” and urging members to become involved with the cause.

    It’s quite acomplex situation and campiagn. the full story is here:
