I neither support nor oppose the Amendment. Whether or not the Congress passes and the States ratify this Amendment is fine by me. I'm just intrigued to find out the dimensions & outcome of this historic cultural battle.
That makes two of us. I am wondering if some of the people who have been part of the look-the-other way group are going to wake up finally.
When the Clintons came to power, the Gay (I hate the fact they use that word) movement started gaining strength. I think Schumers comments at the Gay Parade reflect the thinking of the very liberal part of the RAT Party.
Just read at NRSC that John Breaux may retire -- guess he is tired of what has happened to the Senate Democrats run by Hillary. I can remember when I disagreed with the DemocRATs (usually have), but I still respected some of them especially from the South. Former Senator David Boren is President of The University of Oklahoma but is a support of President Bush and an advisor on Intelligence and Foreign Affairs to him. He supported Clarence Thomas for the SCOTUS too! Those types don't seem to exist in the Clinton DemocRAT Party anymore!
After seeing Schumer's comments today at the Parade, I had to wonder how far left the RATs have gone!
I'm with you, but I will be really sorry to see this issue pressed to the top of the political agenda. The threat to the institution of marriage, given the current divorce rates, will not be eliminated by excluding gays.
