"Teachable Moment" My Ass

Congratulations, Liz Jaroflow. You, as a representative of your San Francisco school, have successfully ruined any chance of any state in this country allowing gays and lesbians to legally marry one another.

Your ill-advised, so-called "Teachable Moment", taking your first-grade students to their teacher's lesbian wedding, was the catalyst for the Proposition 8 campaign, banning same-sex marriage. And it passed. Because of you.

The religious fanatics had no real ammunition against same-sex marriage, aside from their doctrines, until you pulled this stupid stunt. Many voters who were undecided; who may have voted to live and let live, and to allow those in same-sex relationships to legally solidify their unions, were swayed towards the Yes vote, because of this incident.

And now, this state and this country has entered a new era of discrimination and unfair treatment, setting our society back several decades in the process, by launching an inevitable chain reaction of constitutional bans on legal unions between two people who love each other, and who just happen to be gay.

Our state -- and soon, our country -- will join in this effort to legalize this reprehensible discrimination against those in loving, committed same-sex relationships.

All of this happened, Liz Jaroflow, because of you.

I hope you're proud of yourself.
