Another question for libertarians: If those of us who defend the traditional definition of marriage and wish to maintain that definition in law, ditto the right to life and the rights of the unborn, are a bunch of theocrats who defile the constitution as libertarians would have you believe, then were the founding fathers a bunch of theocrats standing in opposition of the documents they themselves wrote, because none of them would even have entertained the idea of gay marriage or legalized abortion?

Oh wait, excuse me, the founders had morals and they didn't equate a theocracy with our laws reflecting our morality as libertarians would have you believe.

Did the founders address the issue of Marriage Dob? No? Then what gives you the right to use government to "defend" something that government shouldn't be involved with in the first place?

The founders didn't have to specifically address the institution of marriage because the idea of gay marriage was UNTHINKABLE to moral men of the 18th century.

Of course it was Dob. Homos didn't exist before the 1960's and there was no history of men being sexual together for them to read, right? Or maybe they knew liberty transcends and trumps sexuality or adult relationships. It's possible.

Which part bit? The facetious first part of the logical second part?

SM says,' Homos didn't exist before the 1960's".

Good gtief. Sodom was destroyed about 1800 BC.
For the first time, I am wondering about the long-term viability of the Republican Party. I say this not as an advocate of its demise or restructuring but as an observer of troubling signs.

The Republican Party is thought to be the institutional vehicle for the advancement of conservative policies, but for decades, the conservative movement has been frustrated with the party's deviation from conservative principles -- its refusal to live up to its decidedly conservative platform.

I believe that the disappointing results for Republicans in the 2006 elections and probably the 2012 elections, as well, were in no small part attributable to...
