The Colorado legislature is debating a bill that would give health-care benefits to same-sex partners of government employees.
“Can you marry your partner? No. But, as a consolation prize we will let you add them to your health care package.”
The honorable State Senator Scott Renfroe rose in opposition to this abomination of a proposal. Here are his remarks from earlier this week on the floor of the Senate.
About a minute and a half into it you may believe that you are listening to a church sermon instead of a legislative debate on the floor of the capitol.
I understand how individuals like this get elected and formulate their approach to their job, but that doesn’t make it any easier to swallow. I am continually stunned by what politicians actually believe is a legitimate approach to public decision-making.
My favorite line, “The Lord God said that it is not good for man to be alone, and so he made him a helper, suitable for him, and that was woman.”
A helper? Really? You have got to be kidding me. In 25 years our kids will listen to this and their jaws will drop. All our kids…even those living in the Bible belt. I know it.
