The best argument for gay marriage so far:
And in case you missed it last night, allow me to repeat this brilliant assignment from Sr. Agnes’ 10th grade typing class -
These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. - Thomas Paine
I typed that quote over and over in Sr. Agnes’ class, ultimately learning the skill of touch typing butt never really understanding it. Alas, tyranny wasn’t as real- and popular - in 10th grade as it is in the 21st century.
Martin Luther King was unavailable for comment.
We may have to rethink how that “Circle of Life” works once the whole pride goes gay on us.
