Senat0r Rob Portman of Ohio is a firm and convinced opponent of any government sponsored laws seeking to protect the rights of those lacking rights. He is a devout Christian who has received support from God Himself to oppose gay rights and the destruction of the American way of love and marriage. However, yesterday he announced a change of heart. “I have come to believe that if two people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and bad, the government shouldn’t deny them the opportunity to get married.” In other words, the man who on Monday opposed gay marriage decided on Thursday he supported it. Why?
His son informed mom and dad that he was gay. It is wonderful that Portman changed his mind. However, it appears that Portman, like Dick Cheney who has a lesbian daughter, are only willing to display concern for rights when it concerns their own children. It would be more impressive if Portman thought about those he never met.
