By my definition, the term "gay marriage" is an oxymoron. I believe the whole concept is based on the union of a man and a woman, so I can't honestly support the "gay" variation.

But since I think gays deserve their civil rights, I do support gay civil unions.

Recently, supporters of the gay agenda – especially in the entertainment industry – have ramped up their efforts to the point where almost all TV series and movies make it seem as if homosexuality is as prevalent as the common cold. And quite frankly, I'm tired of having this agenda foisted upon me. 

But then again, I'm aware that gays and lesbians are probably just as sick of the heterosexual agenda that's been imposed upon them since the beginning of time.

It's a complicated issue. And it's sure to be one that – to the exclusion of all others – determines the votes of many Americans in November's Presidential election. But not mine.

I'd never vote for a presidential candidate based on his position on gay marriage – for or against -- because many other subjects, especially the economy, concern me much more.

If gay marriage was all we had to worry about, that'd be great. But it's not. And we can't afford to let it distract us from the far bigger picture.

But call, and tell us what you think.

I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my…Point of View.
