Think Progress has video of Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, chief sponsor of the Marriage Protection Act, speaking at last weekend’s Values Voters Summit. It includes gems like this:
Musgrave declared that gay marriage “is the most important issue that we face today.” She told the audience that “when you’re in a cultural war like this, you have to respond with equal and hopefully greater force if you want to win,” and warned that the “future is grim” if gay marriage is not banned.
How’s that for having your priorities straight? We’ve got a government flouting the constitution at every turn, we’ve got a war in Iraq costing us $2 billion a week, we’ve got $400 billion deficits…and gay marriage is the most important issue in the world. Because if gays are allowed to get married….well, there’s no arguments about any specific thing that will happen. We just know that it will “destroy” marriage…somehow. What, you don’t buy the logical link? You must be a pagan, humanist, moral relativist fag lover.
