Magnets Prove Gay People Can’t Marry
This is got to be one of the most absurd stories I’ve heard about marriage equality in months. A “researcher” in Nigeria claims to have proved gay marriage is a natural… using magnets.
I used two bar magnets in my research. A bar magnet is a horizontal magnet that has the North Pole and the South Pole and when you bring two bar magnets and you bring the North Pole together you find that the two North Poles will not attract. They will repel, that is, they will push away themselves showing that a man should not attract a man. If you bring two South Poles together you find that the two South Poles will not attract indicating that same sex marriage should not hold. A female should not attract a female as South Pole of a magnet does not attract the South Pole of a magnet. But, when you bring a North Pole of a magnet and a South Pole of a magnet they will attract because they are not the same, indicating that a man will attract a woman because of the way nature has made a female. That is how I used physics to prove gay marriage wrong.
And the poor thing actually thinks he will win in a Nobel Prize based on his work. Seriously.
Civil Unions Are a Caricature of Marriage
A Catholic Cardinal finally said something I can agree with on the issue of marriage equality. Peruvian Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani called a proposal unions bill in Peru a “caricature of marriage”.
On Top Magazine reports:
“It’s an old strategy started in Spain, Italy and France, putting the shoe in the door by this law and ending up with marriage equality between homosexuals,” he said. (Italy has not legalized marriage equality). Cipriani, also the bishop of Lima, insisted that there was no need for the lawmakers to do the “caricature” of marriage, saying that gay couples can achieve similar goals through legal contracts.
Yes, civil unions are a “caricature of marriage” – a pale imitation. Peru should pass full marriage equality instead.
