Happy Anniversary

Today marks the first anniversary of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. As you can see, the sky didn’t fall, civilization as we know it didn’t collapse, Queer as Folk hasn’t been picked up for a sixth season. So, much to the wingnuts’ chagrin, their prophecies of doom have failed to materialize.

Of course, that doesn’t stop them from speaking in hysterical hyperbole; to wit, Robert Knight, director of the Culture and Family Institute, an affiliate of Concerned Women for America, had this to say:

[Same-sex marriage] has energized the pro-family movement because it has moved the debate beyond theory to actual images of men marrying men and women marrying women.

Actual images, huh? What, like these:

Oh, the horror! Can you just see the smiles and love—it’s disgusting, and certainly not something we should allow children to see. After all what kind of lesson does this teach--tolerance, acceptance, love, companionship, friendship, dare I say it, family; these are hardly the kinds of values to which young, impressionable minds should be subjected.

Snarkiness aside, folks, I do wish all of these couples a lifetime of happiness. Yes, even this guy.
