Q. Why's marriage equality winning? A. Because its foes still liken homosexuality to screwing dogs, abusing drugs, joining Taliban

by Jeremy Hooper

Conservative writer Selwyn Duke is glad of one thing: that Republican Senator Rob Portman's son didn't come out as openly involved in bestiality, drug abuse, or Taliban recruitment, all of which he connects back to the son's homosexuality:

Well, it's a good thing [Sen. Portman's] son didn't announce that he was involved in bestiality.

Talk about a pandering parent.

We can also talk here about letting your personal life influence your public policy. If I were a statesman and learned that a child of mine were hooked on cocaine or had joined the Taliban, I wouldn't change my position on drug policy or terrorism.

"Thanks so much for the piece!" exclaims everyone who is tired of this fight and is more than ready to let voices like Mr. Duke's unwittingly move the polls toward equality.
