There are arguments, good and bad, on both sides of the issue of gay marriage. There are reasons people take the positions they take, good and bad, on both sides of the issue of gay marriage. This, however, is just bile:
Remember when National Review’s in-house bigot, John Derbyshire, got all excited about a Scottish hotelier throwing a gay couple out of his bed and breakfast because they wanted to sleep in a double bed? The man is now running for the Scottish parliament on an anti-homosexual agenda. Not that he’s homophobic, of course. No one is, any more, are they? Here’s the money quote: “I am not homophobic. What they need is medical treatment because there’s something medically wrong with them. They need psychiatric treatment to get them out of it.” Why doesn’t Karl Rove offer the guy a job?
Clearly in the realm of those whose sexuality is the core essence of their being, any opposition to legalized gay marriage is nothing more than the twisted and demented homophobia of a Scottish bigot.
Andy, you petulant child. I am not virulently opposed to gay marriage- I think civil unions is the way to go, but John Hawkins is right. Sullivan is no longer making arguments, but rather spewing ad hominems faster than I can keep up.
I remember Andrew making quite a stink over Julian Bond’s Taliban comments. Apparently vicisous slandering of the sort is ok in Andy’s book as long as it is in pursuit of homosexual marriage.
