Rhode Island: GLBT can't plan partners' funerals

From the Advocate:
Gov. Don Carcieri vetoed legislation Tuesday that would have given same-sex couples in Rhode Island the right to plan funerals for deceased partners.

The socially conservative Republican said the proposed protection represents a “disturbing trend” of the incremental erosion of heterosexual marriage, reports the Associated Press. Rhode Island does not recognize same-sex marriage.
The mind boggles, doesn't it? Because obviously, letting a grief-stricken partner take care of their loved one's arrangements is a chink in the door of HUMAN DECENCY and we can't have that, now, can we?

How can anyone pretend this kind of thing comes from principle rather than cruelty?

"Damn those infernal fags, now they want to bury their dead.

They will slowly chip away every last once of heterosexist privilege that we have at this glacial rate. Well by the gods, not here in Rhode Island. I am drawing a line in the sand. No more!"

This pendejo fool is really pissing me off.*
