Apparently, Republicans in Congress Have Solved Terrorism

Norbizness roudns up gay marriage quotes from Republicans prone to hyperbole. The following two are particularly compelling during the the week of the third-year anniversary of September 11:
"It sort of bothers me a little bit when I hear the comment made--and it has been made over and over, not only here on the floor but by many pundits--about we have more important things to do. I cannot think of anything more important to America than family and marriage."

--Sen. Rick Santorum

"Mr. President, I thank the chairman for yielding. I rise to discuss probably the most important issue this body or I have ever debated on the floor of the Senate since I have been a member, 6 years. Our nation faces a potential disaster."

--Sen. Jim Bunning.
These statements came in July. So less than three years after the worst failure in the history of U.S. government, as U.S. military deaths in Iraq were approaching 1,000, Messrs. Santorum and Bunning were on the floor of the U.S. Senate tackling the most important issue ever to face the U.S. Congress -- gay marriage.

Did I miss something? Is the U.S. Congress debating abolishing the family and marriage? That would be cause for concern.
