This afternoons topic, boys and girls and inbetweeners, is “conflict of interest.” There is no greater interest a person can have than his, her, or its sexual orientation. And that interest certainly was in conflict with the task at hand: objectively judging whether the law allows “marriage” to be between only one man and one woman.
Well, here it is, the proclamation by gay rights advocates, as reported in the San Francisco Chronicle that the gay judge making this landmark ruling could not possibly be biased by his sexual orientation. Put that in our bigoted pipe and smoke it.
This is as intellectually and psychologically honest as declaring a drug addict is not conflicted when he judges whether drugs should be legalized, an abortion doctor is fit to rule on the right to life, or a porn producer fairly ruling on the merits sex videos. Give me a freakin’ break!
