You might have heard that a local State Senator by the name of Roy Ashburn was arrested last week for drunken driving after leaving a notorious gay bar in Sacramento. For a week, people were working themselves up into frothy foams attempting to determine just what it was that Roy Assburn was doing out so late at night, with an unidentified male in the car, supposedly leaving a gay night club. Today, Senator Assburn let the gay cat out of the bag:
State Sen. Roy Ashburn said he was feeling "numb" mid-morning Monday after announcing to his constituents that he is gay.
Ashburn, R-Bakersfield, came out Monday morning in an interview with talk radio host Inga Barks of AM 1180 KERN.
That numbness is a result of squeezing too hard. Just relax and you wont be so sore next time, or so Andrew Sullivan says...
Anyway, over the course of the week between Ashburn's arrest and his 'coming out,' accusations were flying all over the web accusing him of being a hypocritical gay. The very people who should, according to their own professions, have been Assburn's biggest defenders were tearing him down, all in the name of politics.
I don't give a rat's petootie whether or not Roy's gay. I don't care what he does in or out of a closet in the privacy of his or any other man's home. I do care how he votes. Roy's been pretty consistently conservative in his voting, so I have no problems with Roy. I do, however, have issues with how this will be used by the radical gay agenda as an example of self-loathing republicans who vote hypocritically. Asserting that all gays should vote for gay rights issues is the same as saying all whites should have voted for McCain and all blacks should have voted for PeeBo. This assertion is, of course, ludicrous.
For the record, the Government should not be involved in relationships, period. A marriage is a personal, physical and spiritual bond which a couple enters into, one with the other. When I read my bible (which doesn't happen often enough) I don't recall the part in Genesis 2:24 where it says:
For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh, once the government has been paid for the marriage license and blood work has been completed.
This is why all gays should be libertarians, or conservatives on this issue. Sadly it's no longer about the issue, but an agenda. It's not enough to be accepted, they must instead be allowed to perform their revolting acts on television, in the streets and in your face. Should you protest, why you're nothing but a homophobic bigot. What, you didn't know?
