Gay Marriage Isn’t Like Kiddie Porn. It’s More Like Incest
Trying to explain the statement’s lawyers made in the marriage equality case, Governor Tom Corbett put his foot in it.
Corbett make the remark on a Friday morning news broadcast by WHP-TV in Harrisburg, when asked about a statement his lawyers made in a court filing in August. The state attorneys at that time compared gay and lesbian couples to children, as neither may legally marry in Pennsylvania. Corbett, who previously called that statement inappropriate, now says he thinks “a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don’t you?”
No, I think it’s more like marriage.
Benefits for Same-Sex Couples Is like Giving Money To Pets
We’ve had our relationships compared to animals before (see, famously, Rick Santorum, man on dog), but never in quite this way.
Think Progress reports:
A Pennsylvania lawmaker compared marriage benefits for same-sex couples to pets, arguing on Wednesday that recognition for gay relationships could force the government to eventually subsidize people’s pets. “The state has a ban on same-sex marriage, so why should the county be offering benefits for same-sex marriage?” Lehigh County Commissioner Tom Creighton asked. “I don’t feel the county should be looking for new ways to give away taxpayer money. Next it could be giving money out to people’s pets or whatever. No, it probably won’t go that far.”
Yes, because making sure someone can visit their loved one in the hospital, and not lose her house because of an unfair tax system if their spouse dies is exactly the same as giving a dollar to a dog. Idiot.
Both Gay People and Drug Addicts Deserve Our Prayers
Talk about being lumped in with someone inappropriate. Tony Perkins is at it again.
Ping News reports:
Under “these lifestyles”, he listed gay people, drug addicts and adulterers, just as a few examples. “Here’s the telling thing about speaking to this issue of homosexuality and I think we got to be very, very careful here,” he said. “First off we need to be praying for those who are bound up in these lifestyles whether it is homosexuality, whether it is drugs, whatever it might be, anything that is outside the design of God for mankind, it could be adulterous relationships, it doesn’t matter.”
Yeah, and I’ll be praying for sanctimonious fools who attack innocent people without having the slightest idea what they are talking about.
Elton John Is “The Devils Work In the Shape of a Pederast” – Who Knew?
The Russians really have a way with words.
An imam in Russia’s Muslim Republic of Tatarstan is calling for a boycott of Elton John, calling the singer “the devil’s work in the shape of a pederast,” RIA Novosti reports: Promotion of same-sex relations could send the republic’s capital Kazan down the same road as Sodom and Gomorrah, the ancient cities destroyed by Allah as punishment for the sexual delinquency of their inhabitants, imam Seidzhagfar Lutfullin warned. “Sodomy… is what the world famous homosexual Elton John, who recently wed a man in public, is promoting,” said Lutfullin, the imam of Kazan’s Thousandth Anniversary of Islam Mosque.
I thought he was in the shape of an Elton John.
Gays Can’t Marry Because Of 600-Year-Old Law
In defending Virginia’s ban on marriage equality, gubernatorial candidate and Attorney General Ken Cucinelli offered this gem.
LGBTQ Nation reports:
In his rebuttal, Cuccinelli paints an interesting argument intending to demonstrate why the 2006 voter approved Marshall-Newman amendment, which defines legal marriage between one man and one woman, should remain intact: The first section of Cuccinelli’s brief cites laws dating back as far as the 1500′s, specifically a law from the Book of Common Prayer. “I pronounce that they be man and wife together”; “wee beseach thee assist with thy blessing these two persons, that they may both bee fruitfull in procreation of children.”
Getting a little desperate, are we?
