Washington, D.C., July 10,
2004: President Bush has come out. He has declared that
granting rights of matrimony to gay human couples would completely
wreck the institution of human marriage.
presumptive head of the Democratic Party, John Kerry, has also made his
position regarding people's rights to gay marriage clear. For him too, nuptials are out.
at least civil unions for same sex human couples are OK.
Once again, we beg of
our leaders: Take a stand on this issue as it applies to our
furry and feathered friends! And where do you guys stand in
terms of froggy unions, muttrimonial rights for our slithery as well
as the furred and airborne?
We feel strongly that
in this day and age, denying the right to wed the filly or bitch of
choice is completely wrong-headed. We applaud the ACLU for
beginning to sue states that are keeping couples apart just because they are
of the same gender!
How can anyone say no
to the likes of Fred and Paul Pinsky, the brave antelopes who eloped
to San Francisco recently? "My little pal Paul
is the sweetest thing," Fred
ruminated over lattes in North Beach with our reporter. "We love
each other so much, but we've had to live together in sin.
Finally, after four years of sneaking around, the Mayor of San
Francisco opened the doors for us to make our love known to the
world. We leapt at the chance!" Paul looked up adoringly at
his new husband and uddered, "At last we can frolic freely.
Thank heaven for Mayor Newsome's courage under fire."
