Oh, Frank Conaway: Do you REALLY represent the people of Hampden?

This just in:

News according to Del. Frank Conaway Jr. of District 40!

Your gay neighbors are "unconventional" and possibly leading us to--gasp--polygamy!

For God's sake, when are we going to realize that allowing adult couples of all kinds to live in conscious partnership is a GOOD thing for communities?

This from The Messenger:
(Try here if the above link is expired)

"Conaway said allowing civil marriage for gays and lesbians will open the floodgates to the state having to recognize other unconventional relationships, such as polygamy.

Conaway represents Hampden, Charles Village, Remington and Mt. Vernon. His father is Frank Conaway Sr., Baltimore City Clerk of Circuit Courts. In 2004, Conaway Sr. was named in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union and by several gay and lesbian couples who wanted the right to marry.

Although the younger Conaway is opposed to civil marriage for same- sex couples, he also voted against the Dwyer bill to define marriage as being between a man and a woman.

'I felt it wasn't my part to define that, and the judges should define that,' Conaway said."

His opposition to the Dwyer bill does not comfort me!

UPDATE: Contact Frank Conaway and let him know how you really feel about this issue:

Got an email address for Frank where we, the people he represents, could send notes letting him know our displeasure on his stance?

Well as a person who lives in Hampden AND an openly gay person, I think marriage is a bad idea anyway. If straight people can't make marriage work, how can we expect us to make it work. Personally I think marriage as an institution should be abolished completely. Maybe the pre-Christians and celts had it right with handfasting. A commitment for a year and a day. Then re-new after each year. But oh yes, how will the lawyers make a living? Can you imagine the fees one could make from a gay divorce?
