Huckabee, and Jesus Weeping Tears of Joy

The day after the Supreme Court rulings striking down DOMA and reinstating Prop 8, we still are celebrating. Such significant contributions to breaking down the sexual orientation hierarchy are exciting and rewarding.

Hierarchy-conservator former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's response was, "My thoughts on the SCOTUS ruling that determined that same sex marriage is okay: 'Jesus wept.'"

No doubt, if you support a religion where man is not made in the image of "God," but "God" is made on the image of a man on top of a hierarchy, then you might believe that Jesus would be disappointed in yesterday's ruling.

But for those of us who understand that human interpretation of religion in often used to further hierarchies, we more likely would think that Jesus is smiling, unless instead weeping tears of joy.
