Curt Smith, author and host of WXXI radio's "Perspectives" show goes on to list some questions the media failed to ask during the debate over marriage in New York. Here's a couple:
1) Traditional-only marriage has been accepted by, among others, Jesus, Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Winston Churchill, Charles De Gaulle, Hubert Humphrey and Martin Luther King. “Pray tell,” as Churchill said, what does the Gang [of pro-SSM GOP Senators] know that all of the above did not?
3) As Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia notes, if gay marriage and sodomy are legal because all morality-based laws are unconstitutional, prostitution, polygamy, bigamy and pornography must beconstitutional. This might please Alesi’s new progressive base. Will it please him?
5) Me-too Republicans have backed Democratic tax-and-spend, blown 23rd and 26th District special elections, and have now ensured losing the State Senate in 2012. (Given GOP deceit, who would ever trust it again?) How will the Gang feel about Dems again owning statewide everything there is to own?
