So Bill Frist wants to re-introduce a Constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage? He's doing this, even though he knows it will fail? In fact, as this country slowly gets more comfortable with gay rights, it probably will fail by an even bigger margin than last time.
So why is he doing this? Because it's an election year! For a supposedly religious man, he seems surprisingly unconcerned with God's eventual judgment of how he has lived his life and treated God's children (yes, gay men and women are God's children, too, Bill).
As if it wasn't enough that he tried to undermine the medical judgment of Terri Schiavo's doctors and the courts of Florida after he used the medical diagnostic technique of watching a videotape, now he's getting behind a renewed push to codify discrimination against millions of Americans in the United States Constitution, a document that, so far, has been a symbol of freedom admired in countries around the world! This isn't really news. It's just sad to see politics continue as usual.
