“Running Against Gays”

The editorial staff of THE WASHINGTON POST – a relatively conservative newspaper – today accused the Senate Judiciary Committee of using the gay marriage amendment “to energize the restive Republican electoral base by picking on gays and lesbians.”

“Senate Republican leaders are determined to promptly bring up the resolution on the floor, though it has no chance of passage. Its purpose, at this stage anyway, is simply to make a statement — of solidarity with socially conservative voters, of hostility toward marriage equality for gays and lesbians, and of contempt for state governments that might choose to move toward a more inclusive conception of marriage.”
