Having just read the news minutes ago, I'm still very much in the anger stage. I'm reminded of this day a year ago when we learned the far right stole marriage equality from residents of three other states. I keep asking what the %^&*(@ is wrong with this country. What the @!#$ does it take to get it through people's heads that what they voted away were civil human rights? And my anger at the Church, oh my--anger isn't a strong enough word. I'm with Keltic on that. Frankly, how these certain sects remain tax-excepmt organizations is beyond me.
On the other hand, people who have pointed out the positive are right. We've had a great many victories this year, not the least of which was our President signing the hate crimes bill.
I acknowledge what Daniel said, that anger can be counterproductive if left unmanaged. I will say that despite my anger, I'm hopeful. I recently sent in a response to one of the nastiest antigay letters to the editor I've ever read, and I received several heart-warming thank yous from total strangers that made me cry warm tears of joy. Our opponents may still outnumber us, but we outweigh them in heart, and that counts for a lot. And we ain't goin' away!
