No, I have not abandoned this blog. I just lost interest in blogging for a while. I intend to post regularly from now on.
A week ago, a federal judge struck down California's Prop 8. The subsequent conservative reaction to gay judge Vaughn Walker's ruling demonstrates how worthless modern conservatives are.
Since August 4, conservatives have been clamoring louder than usual about defending marriage and preserving its sanctity. There's just one problem: marriage in 2010 America is not worth defending. Thanks to no-fault divorce, something conservatives (except the ones who read blogs like this) never criticize anymore, marriage can essentially be unilaterally be ended by the wife (yes, that wasn't a gender neutral statement, but most divorces are initiated by wives) who will end up with half of the marital assets (read: her husband's money), alimony, and custody of the children with their accompanying child support.
Considering that half of all marriages end in divorce, calling marriage sacred is a sick joke. I fail to see how gay people marrying each other could make it any worse.
