Oh, But This Conservative Bigot Kinkaid Isn’t Really A, You Know, Bigot….

No gay-lo for Rob Portman: Many libs lash out at senator for ‘evolving’ on same-sex marriage | Twitchy

Here’s an excerpt:

British Prime Minister David Cameron has said he supports allowing gay couples to marry because he is a conservative, not in spite of it. I feel the same way. We conservatives believe in personal liberty and minimal government interference in people’s lives. We also consider the family unit to be the fundamental building block of society. We should encourage people to make long-term commitments to each other and build families, so as to foster strong, stable communities and promote personal responsibility.

One way to look at it is that gay couples’ desire to marry doesn’t amount to a threat but rather a tribute to marriage, and a potential source of renewed strength for the institution.

But remember, Portman is a Republican so his support of gay marriage is just more proof of conservative hypocrisy and bigotry. Really.

Actually, lots of (most?) conservatives don’t believe in personal liberty and minimal government interference in people’s lives. Not, at least, when it comes to people’s bedrooms.

Congrats to Senator Portman for finally coming to his senses and admitting he loves his son more than he loves conservative dogma and bigotry, though.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
