Gah. I fully support the idea that private individuals/corporations/organizations/what-have-you should have the right to discriminate against whomever they please, regrettable as that discrimination may be, but the government doesn't and shouldn't have that right. I don't like the fact that my tax dollars are going to charities anyway, let alone religious charities that are discriminatory.

*weeps* Why, why, why, why WHY did he have to become the US President? I can't stand it sometimes...I feel like my head is going to explode. But that may be cured by Advil, I should really turn off the rock music and go to bed...
