Representative Tim Huelskamp of Kansas is having some major problems with his beliefs in the evils of The Gays. In an op-ed written for The Washington Times, Huelskamp reiterated his opposition to same-sex marriage, his ignorance regarding their children, and claims that gays don’t have families at all. He wrote:
President Obama and I have very different notions of what a family is. For liberals, the family can apparently be everything from “Heather Has Two Mommies” to “Daddy’s Roommate” to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “It Takes a Village.” In the opinion of electoral majorities in Kansas and 40 other states, however, that does not a family make. [...]
Redefining marriage to remove parents of both sexes from the equation would further the destruction of the family, the most fundamental building block of society. If that definition is changed by the court, the purpose of marriage devolves to mere recognition of an emotional union. In so doing, the children of America will be shortchanged — and the will of the American people would be once again short-circuited by black robes in Washington.
Oh, and Huelskamp cites the usual “overwhelming social science evidence” that opposite-sex parents are better than same-sex parents. As usual, the “overwhelming social science evidence” is the usual group of studies that have been long since disproven such as the Regnerous study, the studies showing that single-parent families have more trouble with children than two-parent families.
Of course, the real big problem for this guy is that the will of the American people will not be short-circuited by the “black robes” in Washington…that is because, believe it or not, the majority of Americans support same-sex marriage today.
In othe words…oopsie…Huelskamp’s position is only popular with the anti-gay bigots still running around the country claiming that they have all the support while in truth, they don’t.
Oh, and don’t get me started on gender.
