Some sensible points, and on a subject that matters. Marriage Equality is a simple right, and one we should provide to gays and lesbians immediately. For too long our politicians have pussy footed around gay issues without giving them the one thing that matters, marriage equality. Nikki Kayeâ€™s Gay Mardi Gras is a cop out from a politician pandering for the pink vote and should be dropped in favour of a real campaign for marriage equality.
Mehlman, Singer and many other Republicans say that marriage equality, which in fact gets the governmentÂ out of the business of controlling and casting judgment on peopleâ€™s private lives, is consistent with conservative principles.
Singer said that it â€śvery well fits within my framework of freedom,â€ť adding that it promotes â€śfamily stabilityâ€ť and is a tribute to an institution in need of one.
â€śObviously, the institution of marriage in America has utterly collapsed,â€ť he said. That gay and lesbian couples nonetheless want to wed â€śis kind of a lovely thing and a cool thing and a wonderful thing,â€ť he added.
