It’s Not Too Late for Conservatives to Support Gay Marriage
Gay marriage is a reality now due to the recent Supreme Court Ruling. Conservatives should have gotten behind gay marriage long ago, mainly because it would have been the right thing to do but, also, because marriage and raising children are generally two activities that make a person conservative. After all, if you have a spouse, a child, and bills to pay you are going to be more concerned with how the Government is treating you, your family, and your money.
Without the official Government sanction of “marriage” these people are still going to get romantically involved, will still live together, and still raise children. But the difference will be they won’t vote Republican.
How is telling someone they can’t own a gun because someone might get shot any different from telling someone they can’t get married because some people will be offended?
If you believe that God is against gay marriage then don’t be gay and get married. If someone else wants to do that then this is between them and their god.
It is not Government’s job to apply one set of values.
Freedom is freedom and Conservatives shouldn’t step in the way of two consenting adults.
Now, they can’t. But the longer they cling to the notion that the horses can be caught and the barn door closed again the longer they will continue to look like fools.
