Civil Unions vs Marriage Rights

I wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful messages and emails they sent me regarding Cody. While he's out of the hospital, he's still in a fair amount of pain, so I've been really tied up taking care of him. I haven't been able to get on my computer too much, but every time I do manage to get on my email, I'm greeted by a new "get well" message. I think I have some of the best readers and friends in the world and I love you all.

I did manage to find a new video, however, and while it's older it still has a very powerful message. Many people seem to under the misguided notion that Civil Unions and Marriage are the same things, which could not be farther from the truth. Civil Unions don't carry nearly the same amounts of rights that legal marriages do and don't even get me started on DOMA. I think think this funny, yet insightful song by Julie Goldman points out some of those differences perfectly.


  1. Great video!

    I do hope your sweet boy's pain eases soon. I'm still sending good thoughts and prayers his way.

  2. Thanks, Eyre. He just woke up in some pain. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a handle on it for him soon.

  3. Sending pain-free thoughts to Cody!!

  4. Thanks, Chris. He's doing much better today.
