Kay Hagan demonstrates that there is no such thing as a conservative Democrat.

Speaking as a same-sex marriage supporter, I am going to call bullsh*t:

Sen. Kay Hagan (N.C.) on Wednesday became the latest Democratic senator to announce her support for same-sex marriage, as the Supreme Court weighs two landmark cases on gay rights.

[snip]

“I know there are strong feelings on both sides, and I have a great deal of respect for their opinions,” the North Carolina senator said. “But after much thought and prayer on my part this is where I am today.

Based on the ongoing update to Allahpundit’s gay marriage “pool” post, I’m going to guess that what happened here was that the DSCC – or Obama – did a selective email blast and laid down the law: support same-sex marriage, or you can forget about getting campaign money from the Democratic party.  Personally, if I were still a Democrat I’d be worried that I can’t trust all of these Senators to flip back if they saw the advantage in it.  I certainly don’t trust any of them now.

There is no such thing as a conservative Democrat.  They crack every time the polls on an issue slip below 50%.  This is a thing that happens.

    This nation is morally bankrupt. If the Supreme Court strikes down DOMA or Prop 8, this nation will be abandon by God. And He will be completely justified.
    .
    The reason the Roman Empire turned to Christianity, is because they were sick to death by the debauchery that surrounded them. Sex, Drugs, And Firelight Fiddling, 24 hours a day 7 days a week, was too much for them.
    .
    However we don’t have anything to turn to. And frankly there is not much we can do. I’m going to sit back and enjoy the slow burn.

      I’d question whether these two legal cases are really such a clear cut decision point for Him.
      .
      I mean, we already legally tolerate people who are perfectly willing to kill their own flesh and blood to avoid what they see as adverse consequences of an act committed purely to satisfy the libido. I have trouble seeing those people as being any better than those who kill more or less strangers, or at least people who aren’t kin, for more or less the same reason. (The rapist-murderers, and pederasts, who want the rape, but not the jail time, for example.)
      .
      Back when I was a child, I studied the relevant mores of the adult world in our society, and came to some conclusions about such matters. I concluded that I was glad that so few naturally swung towards pedophilia, as otherwise I would have significantly more pedophiles to dodge or otherwise counter.
      .
      Note that I am not particularly picking on our society. I have generally had the same impression to varying degrees across the whole set of historic and prehistoric human societies. (I admit that the Romans are a strong example of an especially bad case.)
      .
      I don’t think God’s mercy towards humanity is because we deserve it.

    If gays weren’t determined to be such jerks about forcing everyone else to accept them and the redefinition of marriage to mean “my momentary relationship of convenience” (rather than “keeping oneself to one only” and ” ’til death do us part”), I’d actively support “marriage equality”. As it stands, I laugh at their pain.
    No amount of co-opting “normal” terminology will make them normal. They are entitled to their aberration, but it IS. NOT. NORMAL. They will always be deviants. I don’t care that they are deviants, but they can never be normal. I’m sure that sucks for them in some ways, but that……….isn’t my problem, is it?
    Hey, LGBT’s?! Here’s a thought: Stop supporting the people who want to strip me of MY rights before you demand that I respect…. whatever the hell it is you want me to respect. Until you acknowledge MY sovereign rights, yours are NOT much of a concern for me.

    • sicsemperstolidissimum says:

      I’d note jerkiness is fairly subjective, and can be used as a movable goalpost.
      .
      I have disputes with the political faction that strongly associates itself with ‘gays’.
      .
      Those aside, I think same sex marriage is inherently nonsense. I have many theoretical models for viewing it as such. One predates religious conviction on my part, and might be described as coming from amoral hyper-rationalism.
      .
      Also a relic of those times is my decision that I am entirely unwilling to change my viewpoints on the matter for the sake of friendship.

      • qixlqatl says:

        LOL, fair enough. I pretty much consider it nonsense, too, but they have every right to be as nonsensical as they like so long as it “doesn’t break my arm or pick my pocket”…. personally speaking, that is.
        .
        Politically speaking, as the friends of my enemy, they can go pound sand and die in a grease fire.

    Senator Kay Hagan will be up for re-election in 2014 in the great state of NC, which passed Amendment One by a margin of 61-39%.
    I also noticed that VA Senator Mark Warner came out last night in support of same-sex marriage.
