A small victory for liberty amidst a hurricane of fascism

Well, we should take time to celebrate the small advances of liberty, especially during these times of rampant fascism. While it is my religious belief that homosexuality is immoral, if two adults make a choice to live in a certain way, that is their business. While marriage, per se, should be a religious, not a civil issue, in my opinion, it is a step in the right direction for the court system to extend the same property protections and make available divorce and other kinds of legal proceedings related to resolving disputes that arise in sexual relationships of any kind.

We have a long way to go in terms of sexual freedom - there is still a massive prejudice on the left against poly- lifestyles. It will be interesting to see the left forced to confront its own moral fascism over the next decade or so in the arena of poly- families. Apparently, Canada is already extending some protections to poly- families. Hopefully, the US will follow suit soon, though the recent FLDS raid is not much solace in that regard.

Stop using the government to impose your view of "the way it oughtta be" onto others where their actions affect no one other than themselves. The sooner we stop the nanny (aka fascist) state, the sooner we will be free.
