    Not only are they out of step with Americans or where Americans are moving, but it's also something you know Republicans want to use as a wedge issue -- the Sanctity of Marriage or the Biblical idea of marriage.

    But whoops! We've got the Mormon candidate, and to most people, but especially the Religious Right, they've got really odd ideas of marriage.

    Pleural marriage? Huh?

    That's really out of step with most people's idea of Biblical marriage or the Sanctity of Marriage.

    Not that Republicans seem to have realized this. They seem to be going with the playbook as usual and going nuts about gay marriage. If they were smart, I'd think the wouldn't want anyone looking hard at their candidate and his religion's idea of marriage.

      I know lots of conservatives think marriage is really the union of genitals, but the idea of marriage being the union of membranes lining the lungs is new to me.
