Seriously? What Marriage Equality Opponents Are Saying – October 24th

Written by scott on October 24th, 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.

I’m Totally Gonna Take Out Cory Brooker [sic] With This Flier

Cory Brooker flier

Eugene Delguadio’s group, Public Advocate of the United States, sent out an unintentionally sexy mailer to try to defeat Cory Booker in new jersey – and couldn’t even get his name right. Bloomberg explains:

If you know that the name of New Jersey’s junior senator is “Cory Booker,” condolences: You cannot be a fact-checker for Public Advocate of the United States. That’s the group responsible for this mailer, which ostensibly supporters Booker’s underfunded challenger Jeff Bell, and reminds voters that Booker supports “homosexual ‘marriage'” (scare quotes in the original) and “the Gay Bill of Special Rights.” Like many fringe groups, it can be obscure one day and infamous the next — founder Eugene Delgaudio has been censured by the Loudoun County board of supervisors in Virginia (on which he serves), and Public Advocate earned “hate group” designation from the Southern Poverty Law Center after it started labeling anti-gay organizations as such.

Delguadio, you’re a washed-up joke. But thanks for the great gay kiss!

There Are No Gays in Heaven

Conservative Congressman Steve King, who just about single-handedly guarantees that Republicans will have to run the ultra-conservative gauntlet in Iowa every four years, thinks gays don’t go to heaven:

“I’ll just say that what was a sin 2,000 years ago is a sin today, and people that were condemned to hell 2,000 years ago, I don’t expect to meet them should I make it to heaven. So let’s stick with that principle.”

But fair is fair. I don’t expect to see him there, either.

Gays Want Everyone to Go to Hell with Them

Continuing the theme, Colorado statehouse candidate and wingnut Gordon Klingenschmitt has us marriage equality activists all figured out:

“They want your soul. They won’t be satisfied with your money. They don’t really want the t-shirts. They want your soul. They want you to disobey God so that you go to Hell with them. It’s not enough that they go to Hell for disobeying God, they want you to disobey God so that we all go to Hell. That’s the Devil’s goal in the end.”

You see, it has nothing to do with wanting equal rights, or a stable relationship to raise our kids, or the same tax treatment as straight couples. We are going to hell, and we want to take everyone else down with us. On the plus side, I suspect we’ll see Mr. Klingenschmitt there as well.

Gays Are Making Marriage Meaningless

A new video tries to make the argument that marriage should be for gays only because gays can’t have kids with the same DNA:

“The two become one, and their union as one is s real and complete that it can literally bring a third person into their relationship. This new person has the man and woman’s marital union permanently stamped into their own body, which consists of half the man’s DNAn and half of the woman’s DNA… new life requires intense nurturing and support which marriage solves by ensuring that both the man and woman will always be there as a father and a mother for any union that a marriage creates. Marriage then calls for a total commitment that’s then permanent and monogamous, meaning it’s solely between these two people forever.”

In other words, you can’t have kids together with the same DNA, and you will never be monogamous. I had to laugh when they said that marriage ensured straight couples would be monogamous… how’s that working out for them? It’s an ugly argument wrapped in a pretty package.

Gays Have Silenced The Church

Rick Santorum is upset that the gays have silenced the church on homosexuality:

“I really believe in this subject matter at hand with the gay community that a Judeo-Christian worldview cannot survive with a worldview that is as rabidly secular as this movement is. One is going to battle the other and I can tell you that the statists, these secular statists, do not want the competition that comes from the church and so they are going to do everything they can to marginalize them, to force them out of the public square to be quiet… We’re losing in this particular area among young people. … it’s because they have effectively silenced the church on a lot of these issues and young people don’t even know what the opposing view is on these issues.”

So when’s that going to start? The Catholic Church wasn’t so silent on homosexuality this last week when a bunch of anti-gay bishops forced the removal of language welcoming gays to the church from a church document. Evangelical churches don’t seem to be particularly silent on the matter. And of course, when Santorum talks about “the church”, he means conservative Christian churches. There are whole lot of other churches out there that are not only not silent but are actively supportive of the LGBT community.

Our Straight Marriage is Property, and the Gays Are Stealing It Pt II

Sunnivie Brydum at the Advocate takes down that insane brief filed by a straight Kansas couple:

“Clearly the Plaintiffs seek to redefine the marriage word the Unruhs and thousands like them in Kansas use to describe their relationship in order to extend marriage to them. If Plaintiffs are successful marriage will no longer be as it has been defined. In fact the court decision upon which Plaintiffs rely Kitchen v. Herbert [citation removed], leaves the word marriage undefined. Can a word exist without a definition? What is marriage after the Kitchen Courts fundamental restructuring of the concept? Can the rule of law survive the dismantling of key words like marriage? Should the proper application of principals of equality have such a result?”

If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound? These are all, I’m sure, important questions. So no marriage for you.
