I concur, he suffers from OWGMS (Old White Grumpy Man Syndrome)....I think his arguments all have to do with the fact that if something hasn't changed in the last century we should keep it that way because it's tradition. He writes from a perspective of thinking he knows what's "moral" and "immoral" and has a very narrow view of the world. I think he needs to get from behind his computer/desk and see the world.

Last week, Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio announced that he had reversed his position on same-sex marriage. The reason was that his son had come out to him and his wife as gay.

This is not the first such instance. Periodically, we hear about Republican politicians whose child announces that he or she is gay, prompting the parent to change his mind about the man-woman definition of marriage.

As a parent, I understand these parents. We love our children, and we want them to love us.

Nevertheless I differ with their decisions to support the redefinition...
