Who would have thunk it and on Faux News, no less. Good for Shep Smith, the outlier of Faux News.
We still ask, how does same sex marriage hurt any of us straight people? I can’t think of a single way it hurts me. Should the issue of same sex marriage even be a campaign issue?
One of the first issues that gay bashers resort to is to point out promiscuous behavior in the gay community. However, if gays have no way to legalize their relationships, it seems that they are pretty much doomed to participate in what some folks deem “promiscuous behavior.” The behavior becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy if same sex unions are verboten. I guess that was the intent all along.
Meanwhile, many Americans are becoming more open to the idea that gayness is out of the closet and that yes, they live among us. Americans see that gays don’t steal their children or corrupt their dogs and cats. They see that gays are the folks next door or the guy in cubicle 3. We will become fully evolved when we no longer say “those gays next door” but rather, “the couple next door.” Rome wasn’t built in a day but we are getting there. Join the procession. My knuckles are up off the ground.
