Elgin’s opposition to same-sex marriage disappointing (CourierNews)
Oh Elgin! I’ve grown so enamored of you over the past two years (it’s been that long!) and now you have to go and do this. I thought we’d already sorted this thing out and moved on. But no! That Courier-News reader web poll proved we’re still hung up on this whole gay marriage thing.
On the one hand, I was thrilled to see 20,000 folks wading into the Internet fray, but on the other, I refuse to believe that 18,000 of you still think same-sex marriage should be illegal. Unless our fun friends at AFLA have been clicking their mice for hours (I wouldn’t put it past ’em), that 90 percent opposition rate is pretty hard to ignore.
What is it, Elgin? Is it the idea of two guys getting together in “that way?” (We know it’s not two women, for reasons we can’t get into in a family newspaper.) Was it that ridiculous “Brokeback Mountain” movie? I don’t particularly care to see that kind of thing myself, but then again, the thought of any of my portly, middle-aged neighbors engaging in a carnal act scares me so much more.
