Here’s a statement that angers both conservatives and liberals: I support gay marriage as long as I don’t have to see the couples kiss.
Liberals hate hearing this line because they know it means that, yes, I’ll back gay rights in political exchanges and editorials, but I’m personally more comfortable watching football with conservatives over beers in golf course clubhouses than drinking herbal teas and talking with other men about strategies to reduce our waist lines to 30 inches. You know, gay stuff.
On the other hand, conservatives like Bob Vander Plaats and Rick Santorum, two men more obsessed with sex than Alfred Kinsey, see gay marriage as a crack in the door to an auditorium of social ills and calamities.
Vander Plaats, a Sioux City businessman and leading social conservative voice in Iowa, and Santorum a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania and presidential candidate, in interviews with The Daily Times Herald rejected any contention that their opposition to gay marriage stems from hatred of homosexuals.
