Vodpod videos no longer available.
There are quite a few celebrities in this new video from the folks at Funny or Die. I have to say, however, that my favorite is the incomparable Neil Patrick Harris, aka Doogie Howser and aka Barney Stinson. For those who are familiar with the career of NPH, you’ll also recognize his singing voice as the voice behind Mark Cohen in the Broadway musical, Rent. Don’t deny NPH the right to marry. Dude is awesome. And if Billy Joe Moron in ButtFuckNowhere, Alaska can get married to his second cousin, awesome NPH deserves that right as well. Overturn Prop 8!
Assuming I’m not stuck working on Saturday, which is a tenuous guess, at best, I will join thousands of other protesters at Capitol Hill:

A new organization has started to fight the good fight to ensure equality for the LGBT community. It was started by a friend of a friend of my bro-in-law. If I’ve learned anything about the Obama campaign — it’s that together, people in America can do great things (and especially with the Internet, mybarackobama was awesome!).
So sign up with Civil Marriage Alliance, and hopefully the friend of a friend of my bro-in-law will start this new movement soon!
I will make one last plea to Californians to vote NO on Proposition 8. Here are some analogies that would repulse most, but are equivalent to the hatred inherent in Prop 8.
- Internment of Japanese Americans (and other Asians) during WWII.
- Not recognizing marriages of individuals who are not American citizens.
- Prohibiting immigrants from marrying US-born citizens.
- Preventing women from voting — they’re too “stupid” to know what to vote for.
So don’t be a bigot. Vote NO on Prop 8.
And for all those people who think that voting NO on Prop 8 means that children will learn how to engage in homosexual intercourse in school — seriously??? I went to public school in California. My school barely had enough money to fund a health course for my class, let alone get into the details and intricacies of heterosexual intercourse. This argument is the equivalent of saying that the Constitution should be amended to preclude freedom of religion, because we shouldn’t allow people to be free to practice Islam or everyone will grow up to be terrorists!
Do the right thing. Vote NO on Prop H8.
Y’all know where I stand. Vote no on Prop 8. I mean, seriously. At a very basic level, how does gay marriage hurt you? Does it make your legitimate Christian marriage any less legitimate? Vote no. Or the gays will haunt you in your dreams. Seriously. If you don’t believe me, here are a couple of awesome comics you should believe, and another PSA for good measure:
Crack whores can marry their johns, but no one would dream of legislating this right away, despite the “undesirable” consequences. Why is it okay to legislate away the rights and civil liberties of homosexual couples who rightfully seek the exact same rights of heterosexual couples? You may not agree with it. You may believe that God does not recognize homosexual unions. That’s fine. That’s your right in a free society to hold such beliefs. But our society separates church from state for a reason. The Constitutional codification of the stripping of civil liberties would be akin to amending the US Constitution to preclude equality for African-Americans. This was rejected during the Civil Rights movement, and to this day, we are still fighting for equality. So folks, vote no on Prop 8. And seriously, a no vote does not mean that kids will be molested. Or that they’ll teach children how use dildos and vibrators in school. At least not in grade school. College is a different matter entirely, but Prop 8 can’t help you with that one.
If you vote yes, I’m going to send all my gay friends to your house to picket. And they’re loud and obnoxious. So vote no. Otherwise, you’ll have a sea of gays on your lawn. And they’re contagious! Protect your children!
