With the latest bundle of nearly 2,500 couples of the same sex married at City Hall in San Francisco lately, there have been a lot of metions of the gay and lesbian populations in general, including a large group of gays that are Republicans. Gays that are Republicans?!! If I was drinking something, I’d do a spit take.
I understand that if you have a whole lot of money, then the Republican party can be mighty appealing, since they keep dropping taxes from the rich and it’s widely assumed that the upper class pay no taxes, leaving the burden of it all on teh backs of the middle class. I ascribe to that believe and also the one that the Republican party is pretty much composed of old white guys, their complacent wives, and people who have allowed themselves to be misled somehow. The gays would be a group I feel are definitely in the later class.
In case you haven’t been watching the news, all you seee Bush surrounded by are old white men, who happen to be CEO’s of failed or bought-out-and-they-got-rich companies. Case in point is the partial birth abortion bill in which he was surrounded by these white men in their black suits, all with lurid grins on their faces as they felt they were putting women back in their places as simply a womb for their lacivious offspring. I truly hope to never see that again, since it made me shiver.
So, why in the hell are these gays part of the Republican party? This is a party that keeps tossing around “God this” and “God that” and “God will send gays to hell” and Bush stating that he feels a constitutional ammendment is neccessary to define that marraige is between a man and a woman. I simply don’t get it. Why on earth would you ever want to side with a party whose biggest name is saying something like that? Who is invalidating your relationship and you as a person. Who is saying that you are wrong. It makes no sense.
I’ve been trying to wrap my head around this for awhile and can’t for the life of me figure it out. Guess I’ll give up, let them make their choice, no matter how misguided I feel it is (that is one of the rights in their country afterall) and try and finish my movie.
