Who's anti-gay in Santa Fe

by Jeremy Hooper

The New Mexico Senate passed a "defense of marriage" bill Wednesday, that would define marriage as a “civil contract between a man and a woman.”

The narrow-minded measure is sponsored by Sen. William Sharer (pic.), who insists that the legislation is absolutely, positively, in no way driven by bigotry . He tells the Daily Times:

“This isn’t anti-tolerance or anti-gay or anti anything else. This is about love and compassion for the next generation, building that foundation so that we can move forward.”

Right. Sharer then goes into partisan parroting of "pro-family" pig-headishness mode, blaming the homo-gays for a slew of society's ills:

"We have violence, we have a drug problem, we have poverty. And do you know what the basis of almost all those problems is? The breakdown of the family.

So, let's see: Willy wants to keep the homo-gays from getting hitched, as a solution to the breakdown of the American family. In doing so, he hopes to build an intolerant foundation where the next generation is told from birth that homosexuals are not fully equal to their heterosexual counterparts. He feels this firm embrace of hate will eliminate drug abuse, poverty, and violence in society.

Nah, no bigotry there.
