Well…Umm…Since My Son Is Gay…

Portman - not Natalie.

Republican-Conservative Senator Rob Portman of Ohio has changed his mind about same-sex marriage. He is no longer against it.  Two years ago his son told him he was gay.  Why the big change now?  He said,

“I wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for Will to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister. Ultimately, it came down to the Bible’s overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God.”

Horseshit.  Portman has an election coming up in a few years.  He figured it’s easier to deal with the issue now than to have his opponent bring it up and debate it then.  The Bible is the same today as it was 2000-years ago.  Why do people like Portman need to have a family member act as a real-life visual aid? Former Vice-President Dick Cheney is another one who was anti-gay until his daughter announced she was a lesbian.

These guys can’t quite grasp the idea that every gay person is somebody’s son or daughter.  And each one is a part of the greater ‘family of man’ – and deserves the same respect as one of our own.
