The news this week of President Obama finally “coming out of the closet” on same sex marriage seemed to frame the issue in very stark, partisan terms: Democrats good, Republicans bad. It didn’t help that GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney fired back with his opposition to gay marriage.
The GOP is not where the Dems are on this issue. You can’t try to dress up that pig. But it’s also important to remember that there is a slow, but building movement of folks in the GOP who support gay marriage. And it’s also important to remember that one GOP Senator was instrumental in allowing gays to serve openly in the military.
Change can come slowly, but change does happen. It may seem pointless at times, but I think one day in the very near future, there will be a GOP candidate for president who will voice support for same sex marriage and no one will bat an eye.
Is that a silly thing to believe? Stranger things have happened- like a President actually coming out in favor of same sex marriage.
