Seriously? What Marriage Equality Opponents Are Saying

Written by scott on July 12th, 2014

Seriously?Here’s the the latest in our ongoing series of some of the crazy things the anti-gay marriage equality opponents are saying and doing around the world.

Three Humans Will Marry A Dog Soon
Fox news blowhard and “psychologist” (and I use that term loosely) Keith Ablow had another go at gay marriage this week, saying: “Here’s the thing, the state needs to get out of the marriage business. There’s no way that the state of California can deny a marriage license to four spouses now, eight spouses, or I would say three human spouses and the canine they absolutely love. If love is the foundation of marriage… they can love their dog too.” Except that California has been doing so, and will continue to do so, as none of those purported “unions” is between two adults. In fact, I doubt Ablow can even cite a single case of someone asking. But in his head, that slippery slope apparently just got greased with Crisco.

We’re Starving Ourselves to Stick it to the Gays
The Virginia Family Foundation is planning a fast to protest the expected Supreme Court ruling next year on marriage equality: “Join us for 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance for Marriage from August 27 through October 5, 2014. Our state and nation are mired in confusion and post-modern thinking and nowhere is this more evident than in the current debate raging about what constitutes marriage. The Supreme Court begins their session on October 6th. We fully expect them to take a marriage case sometime in the next year. Our 40 Days will culminate on October 5th just before the court begins their session. Let us know you will join our 40 Days for Marriage.” Way to stick by your (sadly misinformed” morals. Or maybe someone just wanted an excuse to lose a few pounds before the Holidays. :)

Hitler Was Gay and Nazi Gays Want Christian heads on Walls
Rick Wiles of TruNews claims the gays are following in the footsteps of the Nazis because duh, Hitler was gay. “Hitler was trying to create a race of super gay male soldiers. Hitler was homosexual. Top Nazi leadership, all of them, were homosexuals. It was a radical homosexual movement that gained political power.” He went on to say that gay rights is the new Nazism, and that gay people want to hun down the Christians and “put [their] heads on the wall.” This all goes back to a book from 2001 called The Hidden Hitler that made unsubstantiated claims that Hitler was gay and wanted to create a group of gay super soldiers – because, of course, since they had no morals they would be deadly fighters. This has become something of an article of faith among the far right fringes, like so many lies that get repeated often enough. Suffice it to say, when you resort to Hitler or the Nazi card in a fight, you’ve lost the argument.

I Kissed A Boy, So Forget the Whole F@g Thing
Vine’s most popular user, 16 year old Nash Grier, got himself into hot water last week for a video in which he screamed “HIV is for fags” at the camera. Now he is backpedaling furiously, kissing a gay male fan, who posted a photo: “To all the people complaining about Nash being a homophobic who’s against gays; He willingly kissed a boy just for a snapchat story on top of apologizing twice.” Sorry, Nash, you don;t get off that easily for such a nasty slur. How about a little community service working with men with HIV?

We Can’t Call People Poofters Any More?
An Australian sports comentator is in trouble for calling a footballer a poofter: “I don’t know whether you guys down there can hear me or not. I am up here getting ready for the game and I’ve just seen that crap from Harry — he’s a big poofter.” Personally, I’ve always thought that “poofter” was one of the more adorable anti-gay slurs…
