Shall we get this out of the way first? Despite my obvious right wing credentials, I really, really do not care what anyone does behind their bedroom door, as long as it involves consenting adults. if you want to dress in a fur suit, go for it. Leather, whips, and chains? I don't care as long as I am not a participant. Man on man, girl on girl, many men on many girls and many girls on many men? Nope, I do not care what you do. I am not sure how to make my position any more clear.
Secondly, If you want to get married, have at it, as long as you are consenting adults. I am not sure why the Government is in the marriage business anyway.
Now, all of you advocates for legalizing homosexual marriage, here is where I draw the line. If same-sex marriage becomes legal in these United States, will your local Baptist preacher, Methodist minister, Catholic priest, Imam or Rabi be required to marry you? Will refusal on moral or religious grounds be justification for a discrimination suit or a knock on the door from Eric Holder's Civil Rights Division?
The reasonable among you will say that could never happen. The militant arm of the gay advocacy would proceed in an instant.
I think that dilemma is the crux of the difference in polls indicating a general acceptance of gay marriage and overwhelmingly lack of support when it comes to passing laws. More than thirty States have decreed marriage is between a man and a woman. It is also the Federal Law of the Land.
I do not care what sexual proclivities you enjoy. I prefer not to think about it. If you are into gay sex, naked midget jello wrestling, masturbating to pictures of kittens, squirter videos, male strippers with socks on their dongs, tattooed fat chicks, felating interns, bone-thin white guys, graphic pygmy sex, shaved nether regions, Japanese cartoon porn, poop munching, toenail chewing, gag balls, blacklight aerobics, naked grandmothers with orange dildos, a Mr. Clean fetish, extremely hirsute mommy parts, dressing like Wonder Woman or Popeye, or even plain old missionary style in the dark of night -- it is of no concern of mine. Just do not expect me to give you a thumbs up and a blessing.
Perhaps now we can move the political discussion to topics that are actually important, like whether Romney hazed some kid 47 years ago.
