From Right Wing Watch:
David Usher, president of the Center for Marriage Policy, a right-wing group founded last month with the blessing of Phyllis Schlafly, argues in a column yesterday that marriage equality is unconstitutional because same-sex marriage is tantamount to polygamy, with the third partner being the government. He argues that the National Organization for Women is trying to use marriage equality to “to convert marriage into a feminist-controlled government enterprise and subordinate the rest of America to entitle it.”
Usher claims that by legalizing same-sex marriage, women regardless of their sexual orientation will marry other women in order to collect government benefits in an “arrangement of government-sponsored economic polygyny,” placing what he calls an unconstitutional and discriminatory social and economic burden on men. “Sexual orientation does not matter when two women marry and become ‘married room-mates,’” Usher writes. “They can still have as many boyfriends as they want, and capture the richest ones for baby-daddies by ‘forgetting’ to use their invisible forms of birth control.”
The stupid – it burns.
And, no, I’m not talking about Usher and the Schlafly-ites. They’re professional corporatist christianists who know how stupid the American poopulace has become.
I’m talking about the American populace that will believe Usher’s nonsense and usher (pun intended) it into mainstream discourse in time for Bowl season.
And you thought the Wal-Mart Black Friday barbarism w as the sign of the end of American civilization….
