“Gay bashing, plain and simple”

Flashback to the Senate debate on July 13, 2004. One of the great moments came when Frank Lautenberg defined what the debate was really all about:

I’ve come to an unfortunate conclusion about why we’re doing this amendment. Gay-bashing, plain and simple. That’s what this is about.

Lautenberg was right. The gay bashing GOP Senators ran to the Senate floor to say it wasn’t true. That, of course, confirmed it. Take for example, the whining words of Little Ricky:

You can say I’m a hater. But I would argue I’m a lover. I’m a lover of traditional families and children who deserve the right to have a mother and a father.

We do say you’re a hater. still.

John will be posting the Action Alert for today shortly. It’s going to be fun. The supporters of the “marriage protection” amendment better be prepared to defend their own marriages…and those of their staffs.
