At yesterday's Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee hearing, a Maryland girl asked the senators for an unusual birthday present. She wanted gay and lesbian couples to be denied equal rights.
"Today is my 14th birthday and it would be the best birthday present ever if you would vote NO on gay marriage. I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender. Even though some kids think it's fine, they have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on. I don't want more kids to get confused about what's right and okay. I really don't want to grow up in a world where marriage isn't such a special thing anymore."
No word on what she asked from Santa when she was younger. I'm guessing a Bible or a shotgun.
