The new governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetss, Deval Patrick, has made the Baby Jesus cry by reversing a legally meaningless act of pious bigotry done by his predecessor, Mitt Romney, who is now campaigning for the position of US President and Religious Leader of the Party of Jesus.
Former Governor Mitt Romney was certainly wearing his magic underwear when he issued an order to state employees not to create official records of the marriages of out-of-state gay couples who journeyed to Massachusetts to enjoy perfectly legal marriages. It has been legal for gay couples to marry in Massachusetts for over 3 years now, and not a single bigoted Fundamentalist politician has suffered in any way, except one. Mitt Romney wants to appeal to the base instincts of Fundamentalist homophobes. He wants to be the most rabidly anti-gay candidate in the Party of Jesus, but Mitt has an uphill battle on his hands.
While Mitt certainly had nothing to do with legalizing gay marriage in Massachusetts, the fact that he is the former governor of a state that grants equal rights to all of its citizens leaves him at a big disadvantage against potential candidates like Senator Sam Brownback – who hails from the notoriously bigoted for Jesus state of Kansas and has been demonizing queers for many years in the US Senate.
Mitt needed a way to pose as being really, really, spitefully anti-gay, it is an important part of religious piety in the Party of Jesus. And if Mitt wants to win the big Party of Jesus Presidential candidate nomination prize, he needs to come across as hating faggots more than any other candidate.
Well, the new governor of Massachusetts, the Honorable Deval Patrick, has pointed out the fact that the gay marriages Mitt Romney ordered state employees not to record were completely and perfectly legal. He added the observation, which is obviously true, that his predecessor was just being a bigot when he issued the order. “It appears like the prior administration was politicizing a routine administrative function” said Governor Patrick.
As for Mitt Romney, I sure hope that his magic underwear helps him to come across as really, really, viciously anti-gay to the Party of Jesus faithful. Oh, and fuck you Mitt.
