Ok, here's a little tale to bring a tear to your eye. In New York, the topic of gay marriage is what one would consider "du jour".
I was reading some comments on the upstate "Democrat and Chronicle" letters to the editor when I cam across this little gem:
"It would nice to get a direct answer of the following question from those in favor of gay marriage (without the usual accusations of being called a “bigot”): Would the new law allow homosexual brothers and/or lesbian sisters to marry in New York? Why or why not? If the law would allow close blood relatives to marry, then that right should then be extended to heterosexuals, shouldn’t it? If the law will not allow close relatives to marry, then they are being deprived of their right to marry just because of their sexual orientation"
You've never been able to get a straight answer on this from a liberal? I would think that it would be pretty easy to get/give a straight answer. How about "NO?" Just because the bill lifts restrictions on the gender of partners, does not mean it is giving the a-ok for incest. Nasty!
It's another great example of people trying to demonize homosexual behavior by equating it with true deviant activities like pedophilia and bestiality.
It's like a recipe:
Change a restriction, throw in a caveat that in no way is opened up by said change, promote it as a fair comparison, bake at 350 degrees in a delusional brain cavity and enjoy.
It can be applied just as hysterically to so many other things.
"If you support providing folks with food stamps, then you're a communist!"
"If you want people to have to undergo background checks to get guns, then you want America to be weak!"
