Bless Their Little Hearts

Texans head to the polls today to decide if we need to make non-hetero marriage even more illegal than it already is.

Here in North Central Austin, which is about as far from representative of the rest of Texas as you can get, there are a fair amount of No Nonsense in November yard signs out. It's a heartening sight, but I know the rest of the state too well to read too much into it.

Not to be outdone, the One Man/One Woman crowd made up yard signs of their own depicting a child's drawing of a stick figure man and a stick figure woman. Isn't that just the cutest thing you've ever seen?

I've always thought people who selectively use the Bible to justify their own
otherwise-indefensible prejudices were moral infants, and this graphic design choice proves that point better than I ever could.
