With all the talk about gay marriage, with cases before the Supreme Court, it's amazing to consider that last summer the Republican Party platform not only affirmed that marriage is only between a man and a women but, incredibly, it also called for an amendment to the Constitution to make that view the law everywhere, even in the 10 states where it same-sex marriage is legal.
A lot has happened since then; 58 percent of Americans now support same-sex marriage. Yet last month, the Republican National Committee unanimously and without discussion reaffirmed its commitment to marriage as a union solely between one man and one woman.
The whole nation is in vigorous debate over gays in society, even the Boy Scouts, while the Republican Party doesn't even seem to want to discuss it. Period.
