In an interview on Sirius sattelite radio, Keyes said the following:
"The essence of ... family life remains procreation. If we embrace homosexuality as a proper basis for marriage, we are saying that it's possible to have a marriage state that in principal excludes procreation and is based simply on the premise of selfish hedonism."
When he was asked whether that meant Mary Cheney, the Vice President's daughter "is a selfish hedonist," Keyes said: "That goes by definition. Of course she is."
Ok, family life, his euphemism for love and sex, exists only for procreation. Therefore, any couple who marries for love and choses not to have children are "selfish hedonists". If a couple marries and wants to have children but, for whatever medical reasons, they cannot then they are "selfish hedonists". If a woman or man has a damaged reproductive system, they owe it to everyone to never marry because they can not procreate. If the did marry they would be...wait for it...yes! "Selfish hedonists"!
This man is dangerously delusional. No one has to like gays. No one has to believe that they are good in the eyes of God. But this is beyond the pale, and it indicts far more than just homosexuals.
Keyes should be in a tight white coat, not in an election.
