"Here's a party that believes in government out of your life, the precious right of privacy and the right to be left alone. How then can they be the hypocrisy of fiddling around in these social issues? We won't have a prayer," he told Bob Schieffer in an interview for CBS News's Face to Face, a weekly web interview from the staff of Face the Nation.
There's an easy answer to this pathetic drivel. When people take their right to privacy and force it into the public square, it's no longer a private issue. America does not want gay marriage. Everywhere it's been put to a vote of ordinary Americans, it has lost. Even in California of all places.
I have said it again and again. If the Republican nominee makes homosexual marriage into a major issue, he'll win more of the Black and Hispanic vote than any Republican has for 60 years. Alan Simpson's addled brain aside, marriage and family is a WINNING issue.

Odd for a republican
like Alan Simpson to play the H card like a liberal activist.
Perhaps Mr Simpson doesn't believe anyone should have opinions that differ from those of the enlightened elite.
On the other hand, maybe he's just a brain addled old RINO crank.

Exactly! How can these hypocrites say, "Get the government out of our bedrooms" yet want the taxpayer to sanction their immorality? How can the public "stay out of their bedrooms" when they insist on taking us there?!
