But You Don't Support Marriage

Posted by Dan Savage on Tue, Feb 19, 2013 at 2:59 PM

Words of bizzarro wisdom from a Family Research Council intern:

Sigh. Banning gay marriage doesn't magically provide "orphans" with mothers and fathers. Banning gay marriage... prevents gay people from marrying. It doesn't make straight marriages stronger or stop straight married people from getting divorced. Banning gay marriage also doesn't prevent gay people from having children and starting families. Gay marriage was illegal in Washington state when Terry and I adopted our son.

Don't want people to think you're hateful dingbat? Then don't offer shoddy, baseless, and laughable justifications for excluding same-sex couples from marriage. (Via JoeMyGod.)
