Dean at the Bat, Kersten On-deck

Posted on the 23 May 2011 by Erictheblue

Today, two days after state Republicans permitted notorious homophobe rocker Bradlee Dean to open a legislative session with an outrageous "prayer," Katherine Kersten mounts her high horse and rides onto the editorial page of the Star Tribune newspaper to warn against the "intimidation tactics," the "demonizing" and "bullying" and "McCarthyism," employed by those who fail to grasp that it is not bigotry to "argue, very reasonably, that marriage is rooted in nature--in male/female sexual complementarity."  I confess I don't know what she is talking about.  Is she saying that homosexuals should not be permitted to marry because their parts don't fit together?

Dean, on the other hand, is easy to read.  He's a fool.  I'll go farther.  He's a bigot.  Not the only one, either. 

In the aftermath of Dean's prayer, Republicans appeared chastened by the public outcry, and there was some thought that they might drop their effort to put a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage on the statewide ballot in 2012.  But the next day they hitched up their pants and did it anyway.  They don't stay embarrassed for long.  Some of them deserve the b- epithet but for the most part they are just bumbling fools.  They say they had no idea about Bradlee Dean when they invited him to read a prayer, and were shocked--shocked!--to learn of his views.  Most of the rest of the world has heard of Google.  Or they could have asked Michele Bachmann
