Bigots and Tyrants

07 May 2012

The Washington Post:

When asked about his views on same-sex marriage, Vice President Biden said he is “absolutely comfortable” with men marrying men and women marrying women. When Education Secretary Arne Duncan was asked Monday whether he thinks that same-sex couples should be able to marry, he said, “Yes, I do.”

This is nowhere near where the United States, as a nation, needs to be on this. Same-sex marriage is not an “issue”; homosexuals are no more an “interest group” than were disenfranchised women; and this is not a topic on which political points should be scored. Same-sex marriage should be allowed because to deny it is tyranny.
