On to Politics

Did you hear President Bush’s speech yesterday on gay marriage? Today he is goading on the right-wingers in the congress to amend the constitution to ban gay marriage. The constitution? This is a religious fight and we cannot have zealots messing with the constitution to pawn their brand of religion on the country. This is an administration driven by religious fundamentalists no less dangerous than the ruling power in Iran. Separation of church and state means just that keep government and religion separate and the objection to gay marriage is religious. Even thinking of amending the constitution for a religious belief is wrong.
To quote President Bush’s speech ;

“An amendment to the Constitution is never to be undertaken lightly. The amendment process has addressed many serious matters of national concern, and the preservation of marriage rises to this level of national importance.
The union of a man and woman is the most enduring human institution, honored and encouraged in all cultures and by every religious faith.

Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural, religious and natural roots without weakening the good influence of society.”

There is no question that Bush and the right wing Christians intend to have their religion dominate every aspect of our lives.

Highlighted words are hot links that open in a new window.
