I cannot get excited about gay marriage, pro or con. To those who call it an abomination, I say: Clean up your own act, first. There is something terribly wrong when half of all marriages end in divorce, and I don’t think it has anything to do with gays. To those who pursue gay marriage with militant zeal, I say: Try taking the high road and work on strengthening the relationships among all domestic partnerships. Show by example, and the arguments against gay marriage will fall like a house of cards.
To the other 80%, which includes me, it’s like: Ho hum. Don’t we have more important things to get riled up about? I find it discomforting that our society has more of a problem with gay marriage than our society does about poverty.
And for God’s sake, stop trying to label queers as child molesters. Nothing could be further from the truth.
