The specter of gay marriage made its way into a McCain campaign event in Tennessee this week.
A concerned voter argued that we need to “discuss” gay marriage in the context of infidelity and other nuptial nasties. She went on to say that the government must make it harder for people – all people – to get married.
McCain of course understands this woman’s worries and believes in the “unique status” of marriage being between one man and one woman. And he vowed to fight for that belief, which got the audience all hot and bothered. The gays could be a national issue after all!
