Larry Craig - a thought or two

It seems nothing short of pathetic that Craig, who had brushed off rumors of homosexual activity for years, would deny the option of matrimony to some of the same men from whom he supposedly sought sex in restrooms.

Situation: Middle Aged man who has a great life, wife, children, power, well paid job with great benefits... is trolling a public bathroom in DC (shudder) for man on man sex.

Situation: Two people who have their lives together(to their own satisfaction) and love each other want to get married and commit to a lifelong, mutually supportive relationship who incidentally are both the same sex.

Question: Could there BE two more diametrically opposed situations?

One situation is a powermonger playing with fire, morally, physically and career-wise. The other is arguably a pretty run of the mill chunk of the american pie.

The idea that these Gross Old Perverts equate what they do in a DC bathroom to a commited loving relationship between gay people disgusts me.

The very reason they want to ban gay marraige is because they DO equate it. They look upon their own actions and are rightfully disgusted, then they look at a loving relationship and paint it with their disgust for their own perversion.

...which would be bad enough, but a fair number of these families that want and need legal standing have children.

I guess that the party that could let New Orleans drown without lifting a finger to save it has no scruples about ruining the lives of a few children. After all, in a powermonger's view they are just collateral damage.

Gypsy-- You articulate exactly what I've been thinking about the craig "affair." It doesn't matter to me that Craig sought sex with a man, but it bothers me that he did so in a public restroom, anonymously. It's the same story as Vitter's. I don't care if Vitter wants to put on diapers well having sex, but shouting about family values while seeking the consort of prostitutes is the height of hypocrisy. There must be a word for these actions. Oh yeah, there is, perverts. It's not who you have sex with, it's what you're thinking about while you're having that sex.

Gypsy, excellent post. Saw your comment on Morning Martini and found your blog.

I think you're right...the aversion to gay marriage is all about their own self-loathing.
