In a Saturday column on Renew America, Keyes specifically took issue with Liz Cheney, who is presently running for Senate in Wyoming on an anti-gay platform.
During his failed 2004 senatorial race against Barack Obama (which he is still obviously sore over), Keyes denounced Cheney's openly gay sister Mary as a "selfish hedonist." Cheney responded that she would not dignify his remarks with a comment.
Keyes once again insisted that gays and lesbians do not have the right to marry because marriage is based on procreation, and attacked marriage equality as a "capital injustice" and "a social weapon of mass destruction aimed at dissolving the existential foundation of human society, while bringing down the ideas of higher law and natural right that are the hallmarks, in particular, of the American way of life."
"Too bad Liz Cheney and other such GOP candidates, who seem so determined to exploit conservative voters for political gain, only do so as a matter of personal sentiment and self-justification," Keyes concluded. "Their pose would be more credible if they took the time to digest and articulate the powerful arguments that reasonably justify the decent, thoroughly American common sense of the people they are offering to represent."
Back in reality, common sense is the very thing Keyes continues to rail against. He still has yet to explain why, if the purpose of marriage is procreation, he has not similarly moved to restrict the rights of the chaste or the infertile to marry, nor has he articulated how gay marriage is a "weapon of mass destruction" beyond his usual holier-than-thou insanity.
