In his column regarding the marriage of homosexuals, Bill Maxwell states that if you oppose homosexual marriage then you are obviously homophobic, narrow-minded, bigoted, etc. This is because Maxwell knows many homosexual people, and they are OK.

He also roomed with a homosexual who liked Dryden, and that was OK. He even prevented this roommate from being injured in an unprovoked attack (presumable Maxwell would have done this regardless of the sexual orientation of his roommate). Some of his homosexual friends used to "hit" on him but they stopped when he told them he likes girls better, so that was OK, too.

Also, he notes that his sister is a devout Baptist and a lesbian. Apparently, the total incompatibility of this concept seems to escape Maxwell.

So by following this sequence of unassailable logic, one must conclude and therefore believe that homosexual marriage is OK and anyone who opposed is clearly wrong. I am glad I now understand the issue.
