Dear NC Family Policy Council.
It must be hard seeing your dream slip away. Watching an agenda crumble in the face of a new generation. Consider this from the Iowa State Senate majority leader.
One of my daughters was in the workplace one day, and her particular workplace at that moment in time, there were a whole bunch of conservative, older men. And those guys were talking about gay marriage. They were talking about discussions going on across the country. And my daughter Kate, after listening for about 20 minutes, said to them: 'You guys don't understand. You've already lost. My generation doesn't care.' I think I learned something from my daughter that day, when she said that. And Ive talked with other people about it and that's what I see, Senator McKinley. I see a bunch of people that merely want to profess their love for each other, and want state law to recognize that. Is that so wrong? I don't think that's so wrong. As a matter of fact, last Friday night, I hugged my wife. You know I've been married for 37 years. I hugged my wife. I felt like our love was just a little more meaningful last Friday night because thousands of other Iowa citizens could hug each other and have the state recognize their love for each other.
This is happening in Iowa. The right ventricle of the heartland of America. Is it the devil's work? No. It is your god's work, love in its most generous sense. And it's time for you folks to get over yourselves.
For starters, you can stop pretending like there's a mountain of serious evidence to support your positions. Your policy papers are often opinions reflecting an anti-gay agenda that blurs the lines between church and state. Without god as your witness, you have no leg to stand on.
Certainly not the leg of science. From your website:
We are on the cutting edge of providing research on public policy issues that affect the family to policy makers at the state, national and local levels. Our policy papers are thoroughly researched and pull together the information needed to make good decisions. Citizens and legislators find our information timely and informative.
Your work speaks for itself, thank you. And thoroughly researched it is not. Besides, who cares if there's a gay gene anyway? What is your point?
Face it, guys. God doesn't agree with you on the gay thing. Look into year hearts. Please. Love is good.
