Before speaking at the Democratic National Convention, openly gay and former congressman Barney Frank who recently “married” his male partner said in an interview: “We are close to winning this fight.”
What are your goals?
And how do you know when you’ve won?
When the United States of America has its first President and his First Man?
When an openly gay Muslim cleric preaches with no fatwa calling for his execution?
When the Catholic Church officially embraces same-sex marriage?
When the first openly gay pig flies?
U.S. debt is $56,989,725,499,141 and rising. Unemployment is over 8%. Both Democrats and Republicans agree that entitlement programs are a malignant cancer killing the income-producing engine of the country. And what do the Democrats highlight at their national convention? Homosexuality.
As the New York Times puts it: "Gay Democrats Celebrate a Newfound Visibility."
“You can’t swing a cat without hitting gay people in Charlotte this week,” said Craig McCartney, 54, a Democratic donor from Dallas.
I’d be much more excited if these people promoting same-sex attraction offered policy solutions to reform the tax code or make Medicare more affordable. But no. They want gender-segregated marriage.
That’s an intolerant position in any era, but especially so when we have much more pressing issues, such as more Americans signing up for government disability benefits than for employment.
In all 50 states, every person with SSA can marry someone of a complementary gender. But not all Americans can afford to pay their underwater mortgages, or their college loans, never mind carry a national debt load in the frillions of dollars.
Any party that faces unemployment over 8% but gives priority to redefining marriage for less than 1.4% of the population lacks focus. After all, people with same-sex attraction need gainful employment too, especially before getting married.
How many unemployed Americans do you know who are planning their weddings?
America offers equal opportunity. We say all men are created equal, not that they all have equal attractions.
