creature saidWhat is troubling is that there are some gay men and women who voted for those lawmakers, and would still likely vote for them again in the next elections.
There are political issues other - and more important - than gay issues; which doubtless "informs" these gay GOPers' votes just as they do mine. We are a rainbow, remember? This is just another part of that "wonderful diversity" the gay left is always crowing about.
I understand that there are other political issues, issues where a Republican candidate is more closely aligned to you than a Democratic one. I fully support you being a Republican, if you are one.
However, I wonder if all gay GOPers feel that there is a line that would be unacceptable to cross. I mean, I know they are out there. There are some who have switched to independent because of the bad name social conservatives are giving to the Republican brand.
Marriage equality is not just a gay issue. In a broader sense, it is a civil rights issue.
For the lawmakers that the article is referring to, they do not simply oppose marriage equality. They are actually celebrating their discriminatory law. I would think that celebrating discrimination would be reprehensible and would cross that line.
Apparently not, for some.
