Selfish Hedonism

That's what Alan Keyes called homosexuality in the news today.

Keyes is the Republican candidate for the open U.S. Senate seat in Illinois. His chances of winning are somewhere between slim and none.

But I am amazed by this line of attack on homosexuality. Does he mean to say that he is a heterosexual out of sheer altruism? Is he straight simply because he is following God's commandments? Is he saying that if he ever surrendered to his own selfish desires for pleasure... he would take up with men?

What is he trying to tell us, exactly?

Rhyme of the day:

In honor of local tradition
I think it would be nice
To make an extra effort
And vote against him twice.
