Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From the prom king of Wingnuttia High School, Rep. Steve King:

If there’s a push for a socialist society where the foundations of individual rights and liberties are undermined and everybody is thrown together living collectively off one pot of resources earned by everyone, this is one of the goals they have to go to, same sex marriage, because it has to plow through marriage in order to get to their goal. They want public affirmation, they want access to public funds and resources.

Yes, that must explain why Jason Kuznicki, who works for the freaking Cato Institute, is part of a same-sex marriage – to bring on the socialist utopia! Has anyone ever bothered to tell King that homosexuality was outlawed in the old Soviet Union and in nearly every communist country?

It gets better:

King condemned his own state legislature for not voting on an amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision, suggesting that the legislature had been backed politically by “a number of very, very rich homosexual activists.”

“I said that if this is allowed to happen, Iowa would become the Mecca for same sex marriage, and that has begun to happen,” King said.

Oh it has, has it? Davenport been descended upon by gays seeking marriage licenses? Keokuk being overrun by hordes of interior decorators all of a sudden? I’m sure in his fevered imagination, he really thinks those things are true.
