Amy Koch was a senator in the Minnesota state senate until December 16th, when she resigned her post after it got out that she was having an affair with the senate’s communications director. The affair was quite untimely, as Senator Koch was trying her best to pass the state’s version of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defends marriage from the machinations of the gays. Unfortunately, even if it passes in 2012, the proposed amendment to the Minnesotan constitution will have come too late to save Koch’s own marriage from the manicured hands of the LGBT community. Indubitably, Koch’s role in this saga will now change, as she will become a martyr for the sanctity of marriage and a warning to all about the devious tactics of the homosexuals, who routinely lure innocent straight spouses into either affairs or complacency for the sole objective of raising the divorce rate.
Taking responsibility for the attack, a spokesman apologized on behalf of the gay community for the success of its shrewd campaign:
Dear Ms. Koch,
On behalf of all gays and lesbians living in Minnesota, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for our community’s successful efforts to threaten your traditional marriage. We are ashamed of ourselves for causing you to have what the media refers to as an “illicit affair” with your staffer, and we also extend our deepest apologies to him and to his wife. These recent events have made it quite clear that our gay and lesbian tactics have gone too far, affecting even the most respectful of our society.
We apologize that our selfish requests to marry those we love has cheapened and degraded traditional marriage so much that we caused you to stray from your own holy union for something more cheap and tawdry. And we are doubly remorseful in knowing that many will see this as a form of sexual harassment of a subordinate.
It is now clear to us that if we were not so self-focused and myopic, we would have been able to see that the time you wasted diligently writing legislation that would forever seal the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman, could have been more usefully spent reshaping the legal definition of “adultery.
Forgive us. As you know, we are not church-going people, so we are unable to fully appreciate that “gay marriage” is incompatible with Christian values, despite the fact that those values carry a biblical tradition of adultery such as yours. We applaud you for keeping that tradition going.
And finally, shame on us for thinking that marriage is a private affair, and that our marriage would have little impact on anyone’s family. We now see that marriage is more than that. It is an agreement with society. We should listen to the Minnesota Family Council when it tells us that marriage is about being public, which explains why marriages are public ceremonies. Never did we realize that it is exactly because of this societal agreement that the entire world is looking at you in shame and disappointment instead of minding its own business.
From the bottom of our hearts, we ask that you please accept our apology.
