The Arizona Republic’s Queen of Left-lurching has outdone herself this morning. In an editorial that began on the high note of congratulating President-elect Barack Obama’s historic victory, it took a mere three paragraphs before she lapsed into her real agenda of the day: Berating the voters for approving Proposition 102. The Marriage Amendment passed easily by a 56.2 – 43.8 margin. That’s 1,135,604 votes to 884,597, Linda.
The proposition, is the constitutional amendment which easily won widespread support, with these twenty words: Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state. Arizona citizens saw this as a necessary protection against a future liberal legislature or an activist judge, such as we have witnessed in California.
Linda Valdez, should be basking in the glory of seeing her Democrat politician, Barack Obama, a man with a slim resume and decidedly liberal agenda, win the nation’s top honor. Instead, she has moved on to her newest theme, that of promoting homosexuality as a “civil rights” issue.
Sorry, but that doesn’t fly. One relates to melanin pigmentation in the skin, while acting on the other is a choice. Sexual orientation is not a civil right. Homosexual activists, in fact, represent one of the most powerful lobbies per capita in the country. Mychal Massie, chairman of the National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives-Project 21, addresses the subject of equating the two issues in this cogent article, Homosexuality is not a civil right.
And on the election outcome and racial undertones, OneNewsNow, runs this analysis.
