A tactical regrouping

A tactical regrouping

Homosexual activists have apparently realized that the push for gay marriage after the Massachusetts court decision was a tactical mistake. Rather than push Americans down the slippery slope as liberal social engineers have successfully done over the past 40 years, they moved too fast and alienated most Americans, resulting in numerous states passing constitutional amendments preventing the fiction called gay marriage.

Instead, they’re regrouping, backing up, and pushing for same-sex civil unions, which is marriage in every benefit and right but without the name. And then once that’s in place for a few years, they can then say, “We have marriage in everything but name anyway, so why not give us the name, too?”

“Whether it is called civil unions or it is called domestic partnerships or whether it is called something else,” [ACLU attorney] Choe said, the arrangements must “contain the full range of legal protections that married couples enjoy.”

The sad part is that many conservatives and even bishops have as much as conceded civil unions, so when the liberals all shift their focus, it will probably go through without much opposition.
