As I sit here and digest some of the latest Supreme Court decisions, I keep coming back to the gay-marriage item.
Yes, I agree with the Supremes on this one: it is a state's rights issue and I am an ardent supporter of the 10th Amendment.
If you're gay and want the union recognized, move to Massachusetts. But don't go to Missouri and ask for the same protection.
As I read on about homosexually-related issues, I am reminded of a conversation I had with a friend a few years ago:
It was early 2001. Bush had just won the election. My friend and I were walking through Center City Philadelphia (back when I tried to be a healthy person). Our usual walk took us through part of the gay-friendly section of Philadelphia. Back then, just about every car had rainbow pinstripes, rainbow license plate frames, pink triangles, equal signs, etc,...
I ruminated what the country was looking forward to after eight years of a liberal, gay-friendly administration. I was of the view that things would change. My friend was not. Some time soon, I'll have to take that walk again and see if I can count to rainbows on one hand.
