O. Kay Henderson at Radio Iowa reports that a gay-marriage opposing state senator Merlin Bartz wants to stop more-inclusive “spouse” language in the Department of Natural Resources‘ rules. Family and non-family rates are the same, but families are allowed to set up more than one tent on the same site. Senator Bartz, if you really are opposed to same-sex parents, wouldn’t you want them in another tent for all the unBiblical homosexing I’m sure you imagine they’d be doing in front of the kids? Or, what if they’re just platonic homosexual liberals who allow their teenager to bring along their same-sex/other sex “friend?” Maybe different tents would be a good idea? Cramming all the members of a family into one tent, no matter what their orientation, seems like the far pervier option.
