In One Eye

Just back from Boston where I reveled in the presence of unabashed liberals only to come home to find this:
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee said on Sunday he supports the adoption of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in the United States.

An amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning the recognition of gay marriage would render the subject of marriage equality [moot] from the perspective of American courts ...

"I have this fear that this zone of privacy that we all want protected in our own homes is gradually--or I'm concerned about the potential for it gradually being encroached upon, where criminal activity within the home would in some way be condoned," Frist told ABC's "This Week."
I am sick to death of these evangelical homophobic flag wavers. They couldn't get a flag desecration amendment added to the Constitution; now they want to try to add a homophobic amendment.

On a purely practical level, it was determined more than seven decades ago that morality cannot be legislated--that the Constitution shouldn't be used to advance a poltical agenda.

Furthermore, when homosexual activities are equated with "criminal activity," someone's got his head where the sun don't shine--but this is probably to be expected from a man who once tried to extend the life of Strom Thurmond.
