Barney Frank takes political discourse to a new low in the video below. Frank, an openly gay member of Congress, spoke to a gay news site about pending legislation and Obama’s first term.
The comment strikes me as odd, but not unexpected. Any conservative who opposes same-sex marriage is suddenly a “homophobe” or “bigot” for defending the most foundational relationship in our society. The rancor from the LGBT community seeks to undermine any attempt to have a reasoned political discourse on the subject. That hatred for conservative values has now infected many liberal politicians as well. They’d rather skewer sitting Supreme Court justices who have not decided the issue instead of doing their job engaging their colleagues in Congress to enact some legislative alternative.
