Here We Go Again
I'm gay. My husband is gay. Gay rights are personal to us. I'm not excited that we're headed into another Presidential election cycle, because here we go again, descending into stupidity:
"I think traditional marriage is a sacrament. To imagine how we are going to succeed in our country unless we have committed family life, committed child-centered family system is hard to imagine. So, irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling because they are going to decide whatever they decide, I don’t know what they are going to do, we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage. Thousands of years of culture and history are being changed at warp speed. It’s hard to fathom why it is this way." - Jeb Bush, speaking May 18 to Christian broadcaster CBN. (Via Joe My God)
Instead of speaking about equality for all Americans, and instead of speaking about how are best days as a nation are ahead of us, Jeb Bush is using fear to get elected; he might have a point: "To imagine how we are going to succeed..." if (gasp) gay people have equal rights as straight people?!
At least (according to this Politico article) the GOP core is dying off and they are attracting fewer first time voters.
If you're a Republican and you don't agree with Jeb Bush, then what are you doing about it? If you're a Republican, then it's your party too - speak up!
