So, in Michigan, a fine citizen by the name of Christine Weick, thought it would be just peachy to have an Anti-Gay protest on Mother’s Day. While the First Amendment does guarantee one the freedom of speech, at times one needs to consider what may happen if they exercise their freedom of speech, especially on a hot button topic.
Now don’t get me wrong, I do not condone violence, or the attempt to censor what anyone wants to say, but I gotta tell you, I find this fucking hilarious. Yes, the woman who threw the Slushie, Jessica Prince, will probably face charges and that is right and fair. She knew what she was doing was wrong and even told one of the reporters:
“Can you leave the slushie part out? I don’t want to go to jail,”
Confrontations like these are a common occurrence and are only going to get worse, even if marriage equality is passed on the federal level. Religion, family beliefs and self-projection are the real criminals here–we want everyone to act, think and behave as we do and when they don’t, we go to war over it. Even moreso when it is our conception of a higher power telling us something is wrong.
