Advice to Kerry (or whoever the Democratic candidate turns out to be):
Re-frame the issue of “gay marriage” as an issue of women’s rights. Efforts to re-define marriage in terms of heterosexual procreation are an attack on years of feminist efforts to separate biology from destiny. Re-frame the issue of “gay marriage” as an issue of state’s rights. “The Massachusetts Supreme Court based its ruling entirely on its own state constitution.” The burden should be on the Republican’s to justify such drastic federal intervention.
Kerry has unfortunately come out against gay marriage, even as he supports gay rights. In the words of John Cleese:
…this is just the sort of blinkered philistine ignorance I’ve come to expect from you non-creative garbage.
UPDATE: Anyone interested in the issue of Single Sex Marriage should check out this blog devoted to the topic.
UPDATE: Calpundit agrees.
