I always love it when someone who makes a public principled stand against gay marriage suddenly becomes in favor of it when he finds out a close family member is gay. It's the same thing with Teddy Olsen and Dick Cheney. While I'm glad to have them on my side on this issue, the self-centeredness of it all drives me a bit mad. Is there any doubt that if all their relatives were straight they would be anti-gay rights? I guess gay rights are only important when someone you love is getting screwed.
