Just met Phyllis Schlafly of the Eagle Forum. In the main auditorium, a conversation is going on to which I don't agree. While I support traditional marriage, and am against homosexual marriage...I did not support the speech of State Senator Mooney from Frederick, Maryland. He spoke about former Governor Paris Glendening, and pulled a John Kerry by stating "Glendenings brother-who died of aids from his homosexual life style" brought in unneccessary attacks. A "former" homosexual also spoke about how he came out of "that lifestyle" I also to not agree with much of the hate crime legislation out there, but State Senator Mooney said that putting homosexuals in the legislation "legitimized" their lifestyle. He also told the audience that he believed eventually laws would be passed that would "prevent preachers at the pulpit from disgareeing with homosexuality" Come on here guys... While traditional marriage is supported by a majority of Americans, this spewingof unnecessary comments is disturbing. Mooney also stated that it upset him that some people say homosexuals are "in love". I personally don't believe it is my business to tell people who they can be with...but this is just my opinion. Gay adoption gets into the lives of others, so I disagree with it..but gay marriage continues to get brought up,and I believe will eventually hurt our party in the years to come.
