Welcome to Weird & Unatural

Boy there are some weird people in the world.

Sam and I read with interest, dismay and incredulity, an article in this morning’s newspaper that said the Westboro Baptist church out of Topeka, Kansas, will attend a Saturday morning memorial service for two little boys murdered by their father, to protest Washington State’s new law approving same-sex marriage. Governor Chris Gregoire is expected to sign a bill paving the way for same-sex marriage early next week.

According to Stacia Glenn, a staff writer at The Olympian, Margie Phelps, daughter of the founder of Westboro Baptist Church, has tweeted that members of the church will attend the memorial service because Charlie Powell, 7, and Braden Powell, 5, died because of Gregoire’s support of same-sex marriage.

Actually, Charlie and Braden died last Sunday, when their father, Josh Powell, who has been a “person of interest” in the disappearance of his wife Susan Powell for two years, took a hatchet to the boys and blew his house up with several gallons of gasoline. But the Westboro Baptist Church says Josh Powell murdering his kids is God's curse on Gregoire (Washington State) for approving same-sex marriage.

Hm-m-m. Even weirder, the Occupy Seattle movement people also plan to attend the memorial service without disrupting it (?) to protect it (?) from Westboro Baptist’s hate message.

Well, the memorial service is open to the public, but Sam and I hope they have a lot of cops on duty there that day, because this sounds like a total brouhaha in the making. How sad that the grandparents and other relatives of Charlie and Braden can’t lay those two boys to rest with quiet dignified peace.

It’s is somewhat surprising though, that the same-sex marriage proponents won’t be at the memorial service too. Given all the ruckus they’ve raised lately about tying the knot with their significantly same other, you’d think they wouldn’t pass up the opportunity. I mean, they’ve made such a disgusting display of their cause already. I saw two guys kissing each other on the television news the other night - on the lips. ICK! I kiss my male relatives on the cheek sometimes, but trust me when I say that act has nothing to do with sexual attraction and or arousal. I’m Italian that’s all.

Is there anywhere in our world where other animals of the same sex marry, have sex, yada,yada, yada? I don’t believe there is. But many humans, who supposedly have highly evolved brains, think it is alright for same-sex people to (you know). We should all be free to do as we please those people say. Who are we to tell others how to act or to tell them what they can and can’t do?

Well, as one who has always chafed at too many rules and who likes to do his own thing, I can see that argument. But same-sex marriage is not about the freedom to do your own thing. It’s about totally ignoring the laws of nature. I suppose it makes one a bigot to point out same-sex marriage ISN’T NATURAL. As much as men and women drive each other crazy, that is no reason to totally eschew heterosexualism .

Question? If the Westboro Baptist people, the Occupy Seattle people, the same-sex people, our state legislators and our governor all are total nut burgers is there any hope for the rest of us? Sam and I pray we’re wrong, but we’re wagering three bags of poop that we are all in deep (uh, you know).
