The Perfect Storm
Even RSR wonders what's happening to moral values these days.
Today, the New York Times reports that "Gay Marriage Losing Punch as Ballot Issue."
The debate over same-sex marriage was a black-or-white proposition two years ago when voters in 11 states barred gay couples from marrying.
But this year shades of gray are everywhere, as eight more states consider similar ballot measures. Some of the proposed bans are struggling in the polls, and the issue of same-sex marriage itself has largely failed to rouse conservative voters.
When the ruling party can no longer keep itself in power by whipping up the mob to scapegoat the weakest and most vulnerable members of our society it's a definite sign that the nation's morals have gone to hell in a handbasket.
Can it be long before some cut-and-run liberal suggests passing a law preventing gays from being beaten in the streets by good, patriotic, red-blooded Americans? What's the nation coming to?
