Return to the Separation of Church and State
Romney has got to stop his Crusade against the GLBT community. The issue of legislation against gay marriage is unconstitutional on its face. The idea that public policy against gay marriage, predicated on a claim that it should be illegal because God said so, could not be any more of a perfect example of why we have the Doctrine of the Separation of Church and State in this country. No religious tradition has the right to force any individual to adhere to its tenants, period. I keep waiting for some smart attorney to litigate this issue using this line of reasoning, and am continually amazed that it has not been accomplished yet.
All the while, the same self-professed religious church leaders and Republican Party members are out there performing lewd acts in church confessionals, airport bathrooms and any other place they can get away with it. Catholic priests. Ted Haggard. Foley. And the recent US Prosecutor in Florida, who was going to have sex with a five year-old girl? The hypocrisy must stop.
As a side note, in the bastion of conservatism where I live in Orange County, California, my email in box is continually full of responses from married men who are answering my personal ad for a partner. Gay people just want equal rights, and to be left alone. Why is this so threatening?
