It is a gay issue:
The issue of whether America means what it says: that no state may deny any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, is not a gay issue. While it is obvious that the present chapter in the struggle to realize the revolutionary project that is the United States concerns the equality of TBGL folk, and they are the focus of the animus that drives the vicious politics we suffer today, other citizens do not need the encouragement or permission of the TBLG community to demand that their politicians support equality for everyone, without exception. In Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court held: "To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis . . ., is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law." [emphasis added] Citizens repudiate discrimination, not as a favor to the LTBG community, but in their own self interest.
In Animal Farm George Orwell wrote "All pigs are equal, but some pigs are more equal than others." We chuckle with easy smugness: his target was the Soviets, not us. Now the Soviets are gone and today it is Americans who are dedicated to depriving the word "equal" of any meaning, so that they may proclaim their self-satisfied superiority over their neighbor. The proposition is so obvious that we can overlook it, but it is fundamental: where there is inequality, there is no equality.
Thus it matters not whether the BTGL community has taken a position on the matter; any American should be outraged at the proposed travesty, and feel threatened in their own person.
In any case, whether gays and lesbians support the cause and agree with it, or not; whether they want to get married, or oppose the institution in whole, or in part, it matters not; each American is responsible to himself for what he does to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.
