BY NATASHA BARSOTTI – In keeping with the seasonal tradition of goodwill to all, gay Minnesotans are waving
the olive branch wildly and releasing peace doves at recently resigned
Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch for making her break that commandment about
Minnesota's gay community now gets why its selfish
clamour for same-sex marriage sent Koch running into the arms of another man –
a Senate staffer, by her own admission.
"We are ashamed of ourselves for causing you to have
what the media refers to as an 'illicit affair' with your staffer,
and we also extend our deepest apologies to him and to his wife. These recent
events have made it quite clear that our gay and lesbian tactics have gone too
far, affecting even the most respectful of our society," the official
apology, on behalf of gay and lesbian Minnesotans, states in part. "We
apologize that our selfish requests to marry those we love has cheapened and degraded
traditional marriage so much that we caused you to stray from your own holy
union for something more cheap and tawdry."
And even more egregious on the whoops! scale — they now
acknowledge — they dragged Koch away from her tireless efforts to add a
constitutional amendment to a 2012 ballot aimed at defining marriage as a
one-man, one-woman, one-time deal.
Tsk, tsk, tsk.
Still to their credit, they offered this in their
"As you know, we are not church-going people, so we
are unable to fully appreciate that 'gay marriage' is incompatible
with Christian values, despite the fact that those values carry a biblical
tradition of adultery such as yours. We applaud you for keeping that tradition going."
Those naughty Minnesota gays deserve a reprieve for their
very public expression of remorse.
Whaddaya say, Kringle? Got marriage licences?
