Who Should Marry? Who Should Decide?

May 21, 2008

Today I take on perhaps my most right-wing fundamentalist guest yet: Bruce Hawkins, a “highly skilled political strategist” for the three most Radical Right-Wing candidates ever to run for President: Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan, and Mike Huckabee.
I encourage everyone to call in and join in the debate.
Please let my guest know that substantial parts of America still believe that equal rights for all should prevail over his vision of a Taliban-like theocracy where the Government dictates religion and marriage partners for all.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    When marriage becomes less a business proposition–perhaps it will become more of a divine union for all sexes, mixes, and breeds

    I’d have no problem with your idea, Robert, if most heterosexual couples agreed that the state would not marry them and would join in state civil unions. But most couples — straight as well as gay — want a STATE “marriage”, whether or not they get a religious one.
    So if the state wants to get out of the marrying business entirely, I’m fine with that, but once a state offers any benefit (call it “marriage” or “civil union” or “domestic partnership” or “Fred” (I made that one up)), it HAS to provide the benefits equally to all.
