What on God’s green earth is the point of this “breaking news” email from our Gay Pravda, The Advocate? Other than to take a pot shot at the poll-weary President, of course.
Bush says marriage is between a man and a woman – Advocate.com e-news bulletin
At a contentious news conference Tuesday that was mostly about the war in Iraq, President Bush took another opportunity to restate his belief that marriage is for heterosexual couples only. When asked a point-blank question about marriage equality, Bush reiterated his position that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.
Framing the question in terms of the children and families of thousands of gay and lesbian couples married in San Francisco and elsewhere, the reporter asked him, “Are you still confident that society’s interest and the interests of those children in gay families are being met by government saying their parents can’t marry?”
Bush responded, “I believe society’s interests are met by defining marriage as between a man and a woman. That’s what I believe.”
Duh. Not only is he restating his own belief, and the belief of an overwhelming majority of Americans, the headline actually also accurately restates the law in most parts of the United States, increasingly so due to the results of popular votes on the subject. Maybe Advocate forgets that they are still swimming upstream?
