Oh noes! The gays have caused a split in the religious right!

Controversial Colorado Bill Ignites Debate Over Its ‘Pro-Family’-ness

(AgapePress) – A spokesman for Focus on the Family says the ministry is supporting what it sees as a common-sense alternative to domestic partnership legislation in Colorado. But a think tank in that state contends the legislation “grants homosexual couples some of the benefits currently reserved for married couples and their families.”

Uh-oh! We can’t have that!

Jim Pfaff, state policy analyst for the ministry, says Focus on the Family is not supporting same-sex “marriage.”

“We want to make it very clear that the bill would be beneficial to various family relationships, and therefore we think it’s a fair approach to the [domestic partners] benefits issue,” explains Pfaff. “We are against any form of special recognition for homosexuals at any level of government. We do not believe that it is a class that is required to be treated specially.”

And remember, on the religious right special means equal.

But Dr. Paul Cameron of the Family Research Institute has been in a media debate with Focus on the Family’s Dr. James Dobson over the latter’s endorsement of the legislation. Cameron contends the measure’s exclusion of cohabiting heterosexuals “violates” Dobson’s stated principle. “Needy cohabiting homosexuals would be eligible for benefits” under the bill, says Cameron — but “needy cohabiting heterosexuals would remain needy.”

That’s just the way it goes. We heterosexuals always get the short end of the stick.

UPDATE: Upon further reflection, I, as a heterosexual, do not want any end of any stick, thank you very much.
