God is obviously gay-friendly

In case you missed this making the rounds this last week, check out this 3 minute video of Representative Steve Simon (DFL Hopkins/St. Louis Park) eloquently — and we mean EL-O-QUENT-LY — urging his fellow Minnesotan lawmakers not to put a gay marriage ban on the ballot in 2012. They did, unfortunately. But that fact is getting a lot of attention thanks in no small part to this smart and concise argument by Simon: basically, if sexual orientation is innate (and not a lifestyle choice) as science is proving it is, then God created gay people and he must want them around. Doesn’t quite work for the atheists among us, but for people using religion as a justification for discrimination, it’s perfect.
