Overheard at Table 2

Plantagenet: In Sunday school class today the pastor went on again about the homosexual agenda. Every sunday, same thing: the homosexual agenda. How they're ruining the country, trying to indoctrinate our kids, how they're destroying marriage - tell me, what is this obsession with gays?

Capulet: Timing. They won the 2004 election by tying homosexual marriage to the presidential ballot. Got Bush elected a second time.

Septuagent: Actually, that was the first time he was truly elected. 2000 was decided by the Supreme Court.

Capulet: Yeah, yeah. I forgot that.

Plantagenet: But now you're talking about the Republican party, being controlled by the conservative right. That's not the Christian church. The Christian church and ideology has been hijacked by those guys, but I'm talking about Christians, and this all consuming passionate fire against GAYS!

Capulet: Well, you know what they say . . . if you can't stop talking about it . . .

Septuagent: Please, homophobia as a thin mask for homoerotic desires? Please!

Capulet: Well, Plantagenet brought up the question.

Plantagenet: I dunno, maybe it does have to do with the Republican party - maybe they put the bug in the ear of the evangelical church - wound 'em up and set 'em off. i dunno. But there's got to be a reason!
