Disclaimer: As we head into the election there will be more and more politically slanted articles around these parts. They will also have a severe liberal bent, typically. If you don’t like that sort of thing, well…just don’t read them. I will do my best to keep them tagged as politics.
I agree, but then again I really really don’t. Rick Perry has come out (see what I did there?) in support of a state law change in New York that would allow gay marriage. This is a bit of a shocker to, well, pretty much everybody. The man who thinks prayer is the fix for everything is ok with a state voting on gay marriage because he so strongly believes in states rights. I have to say I admire him for sticking to his guns on this one. And while I’m always happy to see a conservative say anything I agree with (at least on the surface) I don’t actually agree with him on the underlying issue. I believe that any two consenting adults should have the right to be married and it isn’t anybody’s damned business if they choose to do so. It doesn’t come down to states rights or social values, it just isn’t any of your damned business what people get up to with one another behind closed doors, if there is no victim. The sanctity of your marriage is not imperiled by the actions of any one but you and your spouse. If you really want to protect the sanctity of marriage, you should just make it illegal for everyone, that way no one can screw it up.
