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.
Gays Can’t Marry Because They Can’t Conjugate, Just Like Kids
Robert George, a co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage thinks gays shouldn’t be allowed to marry because they can’t conjugate:
Just as the distinction between eighteen-year-olds and twelve-year-olds is relevant to the purpose of marriage – because the former but not the latter are actually able to form the union that is marriage – in the same way, the distinction between opposite-sex couples and same-sex partners is relevant to the purpose of the marriage statute, because the former but not the latter can actually form the kind of union that marriage is. Two people of the same sex cannot truly be married, any more than a pair of twelve-year-olds can be married – they are unable to form the kind of union marriage is: a conjugal union.
I just looked up the definition of conjugate: “to become temporarily united in order to exchange genetic material.” Hmm, Mark and I can do that! Are you sure that’s what you want to hang your “traditional marriage” hat on?
Anti Gay Bigotry is a Sexual Orientation
WorldNetDaily founder and editor-in-chief Joseph Farah has a novel new argument in the fight against marriage equality – of you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em:
Let me pose a hypothetical intellectual challenge: The law that forms the basis for the action against the Giffords in New York is a provision that bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Yet, isn’t that precisely what is happening to the Giffords? Are they not being coerced to accept and approve someone else’s sexual orientation? Are they not permitted to hold their own sexual orientation, one that acknowledges their God’s definition that marriage is a union of one man and one woman?
Seriously? Hey, maybe my love of Apple products is actually a religion. After all, I attend “church” on a regular basis, and tithe money to the organization… Do I qualify for a tax exemption?
Gays Are Just Like Serial Killers, Rapists, and Pedophiles
Pastor Kevin Swanson thinks forcing a bakery to make a wedding cake for a same sex couple is equivalent to a number of heinous things:
The forcing of wedding cake bakeries to produce wedding cakes for homosexual marriages, or photographers, or bridal shops, not unlike serial killers walking into like a trophy shop requesting a plaque that indicates the accomplishments of the serial killer… it’s my position that the trophy shop should have the freedom to reject that service… a rapist has a party in which he requests a representative from the toastmasters to present a speech in favor of what these rapists are doing. or here’s another one. This may be a little closer, a little more realistic. A NAMBLA representative… a club, a local chapter of the NAMBLA organization, shows up at a Chuck E. Cheese in Denver… for a party involving 8-12 year old boys in Thailand.
The other unidentified voice in the audio also likens gays requesting services to celebrating the killing of puppies. And these folks wonder why we’re not “tolerant” of their views? Why we can’t have a civilized discussion about this? Seriously????
Send Gays to Prison for 10 Years of Hard Labor
Michael V Williams, another loving “Christian”, had this to say about the gays:
“Whereas homosexuality used to be a felony in every state — referred to as sodomy — it has now been decriminalized, and homosexuality is allowed to be openly expressed in public. While Christians are becoming increasingly tolerant of homosexuals, homosexuals are becoming increasingly intolerant of us…. The only way to do this and keep it beyond the reach of activist judges and unaccountable bureaucrats is to create a constitutional amendment…’ Williams said… there should be an amendment to the US Constitution declaring the ‘United States of America is a Christian nation with Judeo-Christian ethics, morals, principles and values. This will descree the ‘practice of homosexuality in the United States of America and in all its territories and possessions, and in all its States, Counties and Cities shall be a felony punishable by ten years in prison at hard labor”
So let me see. While these folks are whining about having to make a wedding cake, calling gays intolerant, and claiming they will be sent to “re-education camps”, which has never happened in the history of LGBT rights, some of them are calling for us to be sent to prison for 10 years of hard labor for the new “crime” of being gay. Hypocritical much?
