Last time (today)

I promise, I will post no more (today) about gay marriage, but I simply had to share.  Some blogs I read were wondering what the Right was going to say now that they couldn’t scream “judicial activism” about Vermont and Washington D.C.

Well, I got the answer:

“Same-sex ‘marriage’ is a movement driven by wealthy homosexual activists and a liberal elite determined to destroy not only the institution of marriage, but democracy as well. Time and again, we see when citizens have the opportunity to vote at the ballot box, they consistently opt to support traditional marriage,” said [Tony] Perkins.

Good to know.  I wonder what they’ll say when 2012/14 rolls around and Iowa upholds the right of homosexuals to marry?  Or when the repeal of Prop 8 comes up in California in a year or three and people vote to repeal Prop 8?  Actually, on that second one, they’ll just say that it’s California, and hates your freedom or something.

Good to know that your elected officials are also judicial activists, destroying your democracy.

    Because “Freedom” certainly doesn’t mean having the OPTION to marry someone of the same gender…

    They talk as if these laws would force people to be gay. How does allowing people the freedom to choose their lifestyle translate to “destroy traditional marriage?”

    I thought that we were a Republic? Or have I been reading the wrong history again?

      Yes. You read history from a dirty librul point of view, obviously.

      Which one, Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States? The one that said that Columbus came here solely to give the Indians syphilis?

    Similarly, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said that if gay marriage was legal, there was no way they could oppose abortion. And that if gay people can marry, there’s no way for people to have children anymore, and pass their values to those children. Which I guess means that now everyone in Iowa is legally required to dissolve any hetero marriages they have, so they can get gay married.

      I know. I’m not sure where the mental disconnect is between “Gay marriage is legal” and “gay marriage is mandatory/hetero marriage is illegal.”
