WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush will renew a quest in his second term for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage as essential to a "hopeful and decent" society, his top political aide said on Sunday.

 

Bush's call for a constitutional ban on gay marriages failed last year in Congress, but his position was seen as a key factor motivating Christian conservatives concerned about "moral values" to turn out in large numbers and help supply Bush with a winning margin in last week's election.

I wonder why he thinks society will no longer be hopeful if some gay people are allowed to marry. What hope would then be impossible? The hope that one day they can push us all back in the closet? The hope that one day we'll just vanish?

 

He clearly presupposes that gay men and lesbians are indecent to begin with, so that part of the statement answers itself. He also seems to make a difference between "ought to be" and "should be". Well, he's a smart guy, there must be some difference. Nasty piece of work, but smart.
