Only 7 Senate Dems are still holding out. Now, two Senate Republicans are for gay marriage.
Is the wall finally cracking?
Republican Sen. Rob Portman now has company: Sen. Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican who recently returned to work after suffering a stroke, today became the second GOP senator to come out in favor of gay marriage. Here's his full statement:
"When I climbed the Capitol steps in January, I promised myself that I would return to the Senate with an open mind and greater respect for others. Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage. Our time on this Earth is limited, I know that better than most. Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back—government has no place in the middle."
Kirk and Portman are the only two Senate Republicans to publicly back same-sex marriage. A third, Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, however, recently suggested that she's still "evolving" on the issue. On the other side of the aisle, meanwhile, there are only seven remaining Democratic senators who have yet to voice their support for allowing gays and lesbians to walk down the aisle.
The wall is definitely cracking. what we don't know is what is behind the wall.
And politicians are not "evovling" , they are polling.
I am fine with people doing whatever they want. where I draw the line is people forcing others to affirm their choices. Like the constant suing of bakeries not willing to make wedding cakes for gays, the church in South Carolina (I think it is there) that is being sued for not being willing to marry a gay couple, and so on.
that's where the rubber meets the road. Do what you want, but don't make celebrate your diversity with you.
Nobody is asking you to celebrate. Most likely, you're not even invited. You're really not that bright, are you?
I'm gearing up to celebrate diveristy, and now you tell me I'm not invited? Sheesh.
And, yes. When Gay Marriage is legalized, you are forcing those who disagree to "celebrate diversity". That's the whole point of this progressive idea to legalize gay marriage.
But, I guess the left isn't really interested in diversity. If they were, they would be interested in my point of view as well.
