I hate to seem critical - not really - but I find it sadly amusing that several days after the Republicans revealed that they are rethinking their stance on gay marriage, Hilary Clinton gave a touching account of how she feels for gays who truly love each other and want to be married.
Really, Hilary? Are you afraid that the Republicans might steal some of the gay rights bloc that helped Obama win re-election? How sad is this?
I'm a lifelong Democratic supporter but switched my vote, believing the Republican promises to try to reverse the 30-year shameful legislation of Roe v. Wade that permits abortion of the unborn.
Their platform also included plans to stop the movement for gays to be married. I lost my vote, but apparently the Republicans will compromise moral commitment for political power.
When the Clintons were married, I'm sure that God had a major role, not only in their vows, but in the reverent atmosphere of the final, "I now pronounce you husband and wife."
We are all God's children but it is abundantly clear that we all came into the world as the result of a male and female union. Our democratic form of government shouldn't interfere with our rights to choose our own lifestyle, but it also cannot interfere with the basic premise of faith in God and the sanctity of marriage.
I'm a Catholic, but faith in God is universal, and I figured out a long time ago that you are where God put you, and if your faith is governed by respect for life, and if you are trying to live a good one, God's not going to turn you down.
Earthly life is not "one and done."
