Our Attorney General says we’re stronger

This is not helpful since the amendment passed, but it’s the only fact keeping me from going off on my fellow Virginians. Consider these together:

… Virginia voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and civil unions …


Nearly half of the state’s 4.5 million registered voters cast ballots.

I actually believe that last point is inaccurate. By the last count I saw, more than 2.3 million people voted on Question 1. Regardless, I’ll think about that when the bigots proclaim a majority of Virginians want to “protect marriage.” I guess anything can pass if you just get a majority of a small enough pool. I wonder what rights will be put to a vote next.

I’m going to stop now. Otherwise, I’d write things I don’t want to write while my anger is still on the surface. I’ll just leave it here: I do not respect my state any longer.
