Republican Senator Reverse on Same-Sex Marriage

Recommended Posts

Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, whose son came out two years ago, has reversed his view. Here's a telling quote:


"I wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for Will to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister. Ultimately, it came down to the Bible's overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God."


I like that he follows the spirit of his faith rather than the letter of the law, which needs to be reframed for the modern age. On one hand it is too bad that it took actual experience for him to change his perspective, but that's usually what it requires.


Anyhow, good for Portman. Now let's get rid of that idiotic Defense of Marriage Act.

There's a lot of cynicism in the world, especially in religion and politics, but that simple statement from Portman was moving.  Of course I agree with him so it makes it easier to take, but I still liked the eloquence and compassion for his son.

Does Christian faith require one to legislate that morality? Shouldn't the party that wants less government have held this position from the beginning? Is anyone really going to fall for this act and suddenly see the Republican party as something other than the personal bitches of their corporate masters?
