More Problems in the Obamanation.

Washington Post Op-Ed columnist Richard Cohen and his sister are none too happy with President-Elect Obama and his choice of Rick Warren to give the invocation at his coronation inauguration. Cohen writes that his sister -who is gay- is so upset with the Messiah, that she is canceling her Obama Inauguration Party where she was planning to serve Obama Punch.

I'm not sure how Obama Punch is made, but I'm reasonably certain that it contains considerable amounts of Kool-Aid.

Like Barney Frank, Cohen believes Obama should not have chosen Warren because, they say, he likens homosexuality to incest, polygamy and pederasty.
I guess it's good to know that Frank and Cohen believe some things are wrong.

I admit that I don't understand Warren's comparison of gay marriage to polygamy. I'm not in favor of either (it's my belief that one of the reasons we have a problem with Muslims is that men with multiple wives are unquestionably insane) but, unlike homosexuality, polygamy isn't a biological and evolutionary dead end.

The folks who support "gay rights" and same sex marriage claim that homosexuals are biologically wired to be homosexual; their sexual preference isn't by choice. If that argument holds, why can't the same be said about incest and pederasty? Contrary to what they would have us believe, homosexuality is deviant behavior.

I know it's unfashionable to say this in these "liberated" times, but the ultimate purpose of sex is procreation. It's how we, as a species, have offspring. Same sex marriage can't do that.
