The irony of St. Valentines

St. Valentine was renowned for performing illegal christian marriages at a time when the church forbade them. The irony of this is that modern christians celebrate the man's name while actively working against allowing people to get married.
Was Valentine destroying the sanctity of marriage in his time? Will we one day have a saint who performed gay marriages in this time period? I suppose we'll just have to wait and find out.

In the meantime, Happy V-tine's day to all my followers.

  7. LOL! I have a friend who I share an inside joke with about Carl Sagan. It has something to do with his wife saying "Make love to me Carl, we never just talk anymore". Sagan then proceeds to give her the "We are billions and billions of grains of sand on an endless cosmic beach. You are just a fucking SHPECK."

    Wife: Carl, I want a divorce.
