Surprise, Surprise

Surprise, Surprise

The New York Times is unhappy about president Bush's support of the Federal Marriage Amendment. The Times argues that the amendment freeze into cement discrimination against gays.

"If Mr. Bush had been acting as a president yesterday, rather than a presidential candidate, he would have tried to guide the nation on the divisive question of what rights gay Americans have. Across the nation, elected officials and others have been weighing in on whether they believe gays should be allowed to marry, have civil unions, adopt, visit their partners in hospitals and be free from employment discrimination. Except for a throwaway line about proceeding with "kindness and good will and decency," the president's speech was a call for taking rights away from gay Americans."

In truth, the amendment is about keeping marriage out of the reach of activist judges and lunatic mayors.
