We hear that the United States Supreme Court is thinking about revisiting the constitutionality of gay (same-sex) marriage. As a taxpayer I ask, “Why, Your Honors?” I detect the iron hand in its iron glove of conventional Abrahamic religions throwing their weight around again–and the Wiccan in me mentally shouts, “Wait a minute!” Let’s reflect on some facts here. Whether they be welcome or unwelcome, they are true.
1. Optional is not mandatory. If you choose not to participate in a gay marriage, you don’t have to.
2. Even gay people pay taxes. Recall the placard from the days preceding the American Revolutionary War: Taxation without representation.
Does all this feel fair? If not, make your thoughts known and put a little of your money where your thoughts are. Send the package to

What do you say we all join those good people at Americans United* in their valiant efforts to maintain said separation? If I wanted to live in a theocracy, I’d go to Saudi Arabia or to Iran.
The time is come (indeed, is way overdue) for somebody to get a reality smack.
Blessed be Y’all Yvonne
