Shame on Tom McClintock For His Prop 8 Statement

I'm embarrassed to have only days ago cited Tom McClintock as an example of a non-Libertarian candidate that the LP should allow itself to endorse.  In the absence of any support for equal partnership rights for non-heterosexual unions, his statement on Prop 8 is below is shameful.

Prop. 8 Defense of Marriage Act. YES: Marriage is a unique institution in which a man and a woman summon a child into the world – creating a unique tapestry of responsibilities.  Our marriage laws are designed to support those responsibilities and are simply inapplicable to any other kind of relationship.  Lincoln asked, “If you call a tail a leg, how many legs has a dog?  The answer is four.  Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it one.”  And calling a homosexual partnership a marriage doesn’t make it one.
