Standing Up for Barry
By David Fisher
As a conservative Republican, I never imagined a day when I would be writing a letter in support of D.C. Council member Marion Barry, but that is exactly what I am doing.
Mr. Barry, who has said he supports civil unions, voted against the recognition of same-sex marriages by the District because he correctly believed that is what his constituents wanted. Bravo. That is the very definition of “representative.” Politicians of every stripe should take a lesson.
As for the argument that the supporters of the bill want only the same legal rights everyone else has, they already have it: the right to marry someone of the opposite sex.
