Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!
"Serious discussion" (and humor!) about gay marriage is something that responsible citizens can and should engage in, but one has to be realistic about its influence compared to $150,000 freaking dollars of GOP money intended to use gay people and their serious intimate relationships as yet another boogeyman in their quest for electoral dominance.
The group trying to put a gay marriage ban on the Florida ballot in 2006 is being bankrolled by the state Republican Party.
New state campaign finance records show that of the $193,000 that has been raised by Florida4marriage.org, the political committee working to amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage, $150,000 of it came in a single donation from the Florida Republican Party.
