For days, I've seen equal signs all over Facebook as people change their profile picture to support "equal marriage" (or same-sex marriage, whatever you want to call it). I've also seen those in opposition post links to articles and all sorts of things, including plus signs and division signs to mock the equal signs.
I've stayed out of it. The fact is, my opinion on the subject isn't completely cut-and-dry. But that's neither here nor there. The fact is, it's yet another dividing line.
And then today, I'm on Facebook and someone posts this picture:
It's a cop in Texas who shut down the road to save a chihuaha. (Full story here.)
That's what this weekend is all about. It's not about fighting over who is stomping on whose rights. It's about trying our damnedest to be the cop while realizing we are the chihuahua.
