Worthy Cause or Frivolous Existence...

"The words "natural family," "marriage" and "union of a man and a woman" can be punished as "hate speech" in government workplaces, according to a lawsuit that is being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court." (source)

Can I just ask once again if we have much more pressing issues at hand than smoking, trans-fat, and keeping up with the ever-changing PC lingo!? For the love of Allah folks. I have to believe that even the PC-Nazis are sick of themselves at this point.

What an absolute insult to every person out there with actual problems. As I read this article I kept thinking of a family at our school who is hoping their dying 13 year old makes it until the end of July and their trip to Disney World...

And in other bizarre causes --polygamists are seeking recognition for their marriages:

"Polygamy, once hidden in the shadows of Utah and Arizona, is breaking into the open as fundamentalist Mormons push to decriminalize it on religious grounds, while at the same time stamping out abuses such as forced marriages of underage brides.

The growing confidence of polygamists and their willingness to go public come at an awkward moment for mainstream Mormons, who are now in the spotlight as Republican Mitt Romney, a prominent Mormon, seeks the U.S. presidency..." (source) (H/T: Kali)

Ah, we did talk about that slippery slope...
