Ball and Change

By Bill Maher

"How can you stand next to the truth and not see it?" - U2

Earlier this month, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 53% of Americans now support same-sex marriage. (An earlier ABC News/Washington Post survey puts the number at 58%.) But here's the striking thing about the NBC poll: It found that 66% of Republicans are still against marriage equality. That means, for the foreseeable future, in a system where voters still only have two choices per election, one of them is still going to be operating on instructions from Jesus to hate fags.

It made me think about that new Jackie Robinson movie, "42." It was the #1 movie in America last week and received a seldom-seen A+ CinemaScore from audiences. And I think I know why:

Because nothing feels better than feeling morally superior to people in the past who are obviously wrong. In this case, racists. You get to congratulate yourself in hindsight. Of course you know baseball should be integrated. You’d never shout mean things at Jackie Robinson in 1947.

Seventy years from now, they're going to be making self-congratulatory movies about marriage equality, so we can hiss at the hateful idiots who were laughably wrong about that, too.

I wonder how many of those 66% of Republicans went to see "42" and didn't make the connection at all.

Jesus does not tell Christians to "hate fags" as you so eloquently put it. He does tell us that homosexuality is against nature and his teachings. Jesus tells us to love our fellow man, but, we do not have to love the sin. Sincerely, Pam
