No, but that was certainly a consideration. They LIKE MOST OF US came about it over a process, like Obama. (Biden got there earlier). Not to mention the LAW which seemed to get in the way for a couple of decades.
4.6% of the population is gay. And NOT ALL WILL MARRY! How in the hell will those who do affect my life or YOURS one iota? Let 'em! Hope they are happy and healthy.
OOOOOH! You missed the 'BIG PORKER'. Look up Ted Stevens, Alaska. In fact didn't he do jail time?? Head of the Ways and Means Committee. He could pork the shit out of any bill that came across his desk. And apparently did! Not to mention his LOCAL graft and corruption and payoffs within Alaska.

Shrug. I already knew that, as a Republican, you don't 'buhleeve' in none of that Darwan ape-man monkee bizness noncents. Which is odd, considering that you're a Neanderthal, and ought to be able to look around and see that most other humans are more advanced than you.
