Gay Marriage and All That

My God, you sound like Pat Robertson -- the world is going to hell in a handbasket because gays demand equal rights! It will be the downfall of our civilization! Get real. Gays are asking for the right to marry and enjoy the legal rights of marriage -- NOT for right to live Hefner's Playboy philosohy. They can already do that if if they want to. As for Kinsey, he did the world a great service by bringing the subject of sexuality out in the open. Before 1949, people were NOT more moral just because they didn't talk about these things.

Let us now praise Barack Obama. The president has finally come out and said what everyone -- except maybe himself -- knew he believed all along: He's for allowing homosexual couples to marry. That's nice. Now he can tick off another item on the list of must-dos for an orthodox liberal/progressive/libertarian.

It would be even nicer if he would just give it a rest, though of course he won't. It's a presidential election year and there's fund-raising to do -- especially in Hollywood.

But let us be thankful for any moment of clarity in politics even if it's only a moment....
