Thought of the day

Bigots will often argue that homosexuality is a choice. It isn’t, but let’s pretend it is. Then heterosexuality must also be a choice. So what convincing reason do we have to give marital protections to one choice over another? It surely has nothing to do with children. Gay people have kids, too. And besides, we know straight couples over, say, 80 cannot have children, yet no bigots are clamoring to deny them the right to marry. So what other distinctions do we have? Any? Any at all?

Bueller? Bueller?

  1. This is one major sticking point between libertarians and their otherwise natural allies in the GOP: libertarians MUST favor of gay marriage, and Republicans absolutely CANNOT.

    The only alternative for libertarians is to wish that government got out of the marriage business entirely… but that’s not compatible with the Republican base either.

    It’s always nice to see the hateful reactionaries at each others’ throats.
