I love reading a black conservative take on issues. My hope is to understand other perspectives. But..."impulses of the moment"? You are fortunate that the Constitution was amended to include the whole you in this democracy experience. You're no longer politically considered 3/5 of a person. Owning land & being a white male no longer determines our right to vote.
All due to "momentary impulses". Not sure the Constitution (or the Declaration of Independence) says much about marriage, gay or otherwise. In one breath you champion Lincoln's position about "core truth" preceding the democratic process. Then you rail against deviating from " social standards". What?
