"I strongly believe marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman," Bush said during an Oval Office session with Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. "I am troubled by activist judges who are defining marriage."
"People need to be involved in this decision," Bush said. "Marriage ought to be defined by the people not by the courts. And I'm watching it carefully."
I guess it's better to let the government into your bedroom than the courts? What the hell. For crap's sake, let people do what they will in their bedroom, and not discriminate against people whose bedroom practices "differ" from what some people consider acceptable.
This debate is really starting to bother me. People are different. I thought we were supposed to accept that. It was once believed that blacks were animals and not equal to whites. Why? Because white people decided they were right and better than blacks. That changed. Heterosexuals think they are better and right, and that homosexuals are wrong and unequal. When will some closed-minded people realize that homosexuals are no less a person and no less deserving of equal rights than heterosexuals?
