On the Miss America Gay Marriage Flap

A couple of observations.

One, a quote attributed to Andy Rooney that pretty much hits the nail on the head:

"I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion."

Same goes for gay "marriage".

And as my buddy Morgan noted a while back, it would be nice if the Left would show some of that open-mindedness and tolerence it's always talking about.

But the winner on this one actually goes to a caller into the Dr. Laura show I heard in the car today.

She said:
Barack Obama was asked the same question during the campaign, and gave basically the same answer -- and it didn't cost him his crown.
My opinion on the subject remains. The government didn't define Marriage. The government shouldn't define Marriage. It recognizes Marriage as a legal contract. But it has no business telling us what is and isn't Marriage. It does not belong to the government to define.
