Unwelcome Mat is Out

That's the ridiculous headline in today's Topeka Capital Journal.

The article profiles a Lawrence gay couple who are awaiting the voter's decision as to what to do with them:

"These people have to decide what they're going to do with us, honestly. Are we to give up our dedication to one another? Where do we go to church? Where do we work? Everyone keeps telling us what we can't do and where we can't go, but no one realizes there are no places left."
How silly. The Marriage Amendment doesn't do anything other than clarify the obvious fact that marriage in Kansas is between one man and one woman as it has been since the beginning of time. They've never had the right to marry each other, and they never will. They can live together, form a legally binding arrangement with each other, go to any church they choose, work anywhere they want (some places of employment will even grant them special partner benefits), and go anywhere they want. The Marriage Amendment gives nothing to them and takes nothing away.

Marriage, gentlemen, is a God-ordained institution. It isn't for us to redefine in any way we see fit in order to adopt a higher level of political correctness. It is for us, however, to protect it.

Did you notice that the Lawrence Journal World had a parallel story Sunday? There is no Liberal agenda, is there?

I just wonder who sent out the talking points.

The media all get "press releases" from groups that are opponents of the marriage amendment. And there will always be parrots at newspapers and TV stations willing to repeat those points.

Pro-family groups write press releases too, but those points (for some BIZAARE reason) don't get mimicked as often. Very interesting.
