This anti-gay-marriage editorial in the student newspaper at Texas Christian University is what happens when circular reasoning humps the legs of our founding fathers: Homosexuality was not among the "values and principles that founded this country" because the founding fathers weren't homosexuals—they were Christians (some pretty nominal ones)—and to keep our nation "connected to its founding principles" we must forbid those things that our founding fathers didn't see coming when they decided to write the Constitution instead of just tearing pages out of Leviticus and calling it a day. And since our founding fathers didn't see gay marriage coming.... or... um... black citizens (as opposed to black property), votes for women, directly-elected senators, horseless carriages, microwave popcorn, etc., then no gay marriages, okay?
