I am a foe of special interest voting, whether it be immigration, abortion, or, in this case, homosexual rights.
It is my belief that one should vote based on the best interest of the nation. Sullivan shows us that he cares not about national security, nor the economy. He only cares about his personal life.
I am disappointed in him and am sorry to see that I was terribly wrong about his character.
Cut him a bit of slack. Realize he lives in a gay world full of gay friends who have been harping on him as a conservative. Now Bush comes out against something he and his friends really want: societal acknowledgement that their activities and desires are OK. They see gay marriage as a hurtle to cross to achieve that much desired goal. That a homosexual/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered/transvestite family is just as normal as a heterosexual family. That kids raised in such an enviornment is just as normal as in a heterosexual environment. Another hurtle is all churhes, social institutions (like Scouting) and public institutions recognition that homosexual behavior is a reasonable alternative to homosexual/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered/transvestite behavior.
He has made this an identity issue.
