It does NOT matter what a politicians personal morals and beliefs are beyond using a Moral approach to Governing. AKA: Don't Cheat, Lie to, or Steal from taxpayers that Elected you. Beyond that NO! If you love Gays or Hate them, you have NO right to put policy in place that forces others to live by your Morals. or Anti-Morals. What if Boston's Mayor was a Drunk Skirt chasing Gambler? Would that mean he had the Right to force everyone Else to become Drunk Skirt chasing Gamblers? I hope Not Boston has enough Kennedy's.
