Marriage Protection Amendment is Dubya's way of being altruistic towards gays

In response to all the cynicism surrounding the election year resurfacing of the Marriage Protection Amendment, the boy blunder spoke out to reaffrim his committment to protecting the almost obliterated institution of marriage while explaining that the sudden new push for the amendment was, in fact, to protect gays as much as marriage [emphasis added]
Bush said that it was necessary to keep the debate over gay marriage from spilling over into prejudice. 'As this debate goes forward, we must remember that every American deserves to be treated with tolerance, respect and dignity,' he added. [Guardian UK]
Enacting the amendment will, in fact, stop any debate over gay marriage since it will ensure that, while gay people can't get married to their chosen partner, it will ensure everyone has equal protection under the constitution as it does not prevent gay people from marrying altogether or even marrying each other (provided the partners are of the opposite sex). Of course, once life-couselor Richard Cohen completes his task of "hugging the gay away", American society will be safe from any 'mo threats.
