Giuliani says Republicans should stay out of bedrooms

In a recent CNN interview, former New York City mayor and possible presidential aspirant, Rudy Giuliani had these words of wisdom for the Republican Party:

…get the heck out of people’s bedrooms and let these things get decided by states….I don’t know [why] the heck the Republican Party wants to be getting involved in people’s sexual lives and personal lives so much….Stay out of it, and I think we would be a much more successful political party if we stuck to our economic conservative roots.

What planet is Giuliani from?

First, homosexuals have no intention of letting “these things get decided by the states,” hence the fevered efforts to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

Second, Republicans in the sex lives, bedrooms, and personal lives of other people? Surely Giuliani jests.

It’s not Republicans who are reading picture books to other people’s children about Heather’s two dads or boys who wear tutus.

And it’s not Republicans who want men who wear dresses to use women’s bathrooms.

And it’s not Republicans who want to teach the nation’s adolescents that “Erotic images in art reflect society’s views about sexuality and help people understand sexuality.”

And it’s not Republicans who parade annually through the streets in rainbow-colored panties and gigantic inflated phalluses, proclaiming that the entire nation should affirm their sexual proclivities.

And it’s not Republicans who have changed laws to permit genetic males who electively amputate their healthy penises to change their sex designation on government-issued drivers’ licenses, which, by the way, represents Democrats inserting/imposing their philosophical assumptions on the entirety of society.

Our Position on the “Defense of Marriage Initiative”

A state constitutional amendment is the legislative solution to the problem of same-sex “marriage.”  We cannot, however, ignore the fact that the barrier to secure this solution is political.   The political problem must be addressed before we expect to realize a binding constitutional marriage amendment.

The fact is, we must deal with the political realities of Springfield’s power structure before we can think about realizing legislative solutions. I would like nothing more than to see the “Civil Unions” law repealed and a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as one man, one woman passed. The fact is, in every legislative session since 2003, such an amendment has been introduced, but has, without exception, failed to even be scheduled for a legislative hearing. Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan (D-Chicago) and Illinois Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago) – formerly Senate President Emil Jones (D-Chicago) – are the gatekeepers. If they do not want a bill to move, it lingers in Rules Committee until the session ends.

If we expect to affect legislative change, we must first work to change the power structure of the Illinois General Assembly.  That means working to unseat House Speaker Madigan and Senate President Cullerton by making Democrats the minority parties in the Illinois House and Senate.  That can be achieved by gaining 6 seats in both chambers — and it could be realized in the next General Election in November 2012.
