Focus on the Family is holding a Valentine’s Day Contest! All you have to is write a love letter to your spouse (under 300 words) explaining why you want to grow old with them.
As far as I can tell (and I read through the entire set of rules), gay couples are totally allowed to enter. Sure, they say right up front that “marriage between a man and a woman is a sacred commitment,” but at no point do they forbid gay couples from entering.
I know some of you live in a state where gay marriage is legal… and you’re half of a happily married gay couple.
I’m sure James Dobson and his ilk would love to hear about how beautiful your relationship is 🙂 And how it’s Just. Like. Everyone. Else’s.
But why waste your time? If they know you’re talking about a gay spouse, they’ll just ignore your entry, right?
Not necessarily. I can see it now…
I fell in love the moment I first laid eyes on you. It was during a meeting of the college group we both belonged to. We spent that first day together discussing the Bible, God, and Christianity and haven’t stopped ever since.
I want to grow old with you.
Oh, unisex names and campus atheist groups, how I love you.
C’mon… someone win this thing! Look at the grand prize:
This would be *so* much more rewarding than crashing a poll 🙂
