Here’s a nice little short by some comedians who want to say their piece about the passing of Prop 8 in California. I make no claims about the veracity of Jack Black’s take on theology, but he definitely has a point about Christians “picking and choosing” the parts of the Bible they want to practice.

If you’ve got some time, go check out the comments on this video… It’s both funny and sobering to see people lobbing accusations of bigotry back and forth on this issue. According to The American Heritage Dictionary (via Dictionary.com), a bigot is “one who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.” Based on this definition, it seems fairly apparent to me who the real bigots are.

In the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t all that long ago in this country that women couldn’t vote or own property or that people of African descent couldn’t vote, go to regular schools, or even get legally married. These people (and many others) had to fight to be afforded the same rights as white, protestant men. They protested, boycotted, staged sit-ins and other demonstrations, gave speeches and held rallies, and endured violence, name-calling, and oppression (both direct and institutionalized). Anyone who fails to see the parallels between those situations and the current fight for gay rights has blinded her/himself to the lessons taught us by our past.
