After Re-election, Claire McCaskill Sorta Comes Out For Gay Marriage


And attempts to use the Bible to back her play, which, as written, can get a bit squishy and would allow her to dissemble when pressed

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13

Well, if she wants to really push Corinthians 13, then she should immediately give up all her wealth and do it with love

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

OK, a bit of a stretch.

The question of marriage equality is a great American debate. Many people, some with strong religious faith, believe that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman. Other people, many of whom also have strong religious faith, believe that our country should not limit the commitment of marriage to some, but rather all Americans, gay and straight should be allowed to fully participate in the most basic of family values.

I have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. While churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry.

Now, she does have a point: Government shouldn’t. It should be left up to the religious institutions. But, what of The People? What if The People vote to restrict marriage to being between a man and a woman? And what of McCaskill’s vote to deny religious institutions their 1st Amendment right to determine whether or not they will offer health insurance that provides contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients? What if a woman or man wants to marry multiple times for love? Should the government stop that? What about trans-fats, salt, fatty foods, sugary drinks: should the government be involved? There are lots and lots and lots of things The Government tells The People to do/not do that The Government should stay the hell out of. And, typically, it’s Democrats that are playing Mommy and Daddy.

Supporting marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples is simply the right thing to do for our country, a country founded on the principals of liberty and equality.

Yet, Democrats, and Government, work very hard to take away/limit liberty.

PS: Will Claire post this on her official Senate page, or simply leave it on her Tumblr page, where most of her constituents will miss it?
