Matt Barber: Frank n' Steve = Frankenstein

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  Good As You Images  Good As You Images  Good As You Images  Good As You Images  Good As You Images Img4297E7C83Ba21 1-1-1-2The Concerned Women For America's Matt Barber has written yet another formulaic, talking point-laden diatribe in which he rails against gay marriage in general, and, more specifically, the recent Massachusetts decision. Seeing as how it's late in the afternoon and we have not the energy to once again challenge anti-gay marriage lines like, "And what about incest?" (a concept we already covered today), we will instead highlight a nutty visual element that CWA chose to associate with this particular denunciation.

Below is the image and text CWA is using to highlight Matt's piece on their website's front page:

Picture 4-63

Wow -- our legally-recognized monogamy is a monster in the vein of Dr. Frankenstein's creation? And here we always considered it to be more along the lines of Casper the friendly ghost. Or, maybe if we're sticking with the Frankesntein motif, we like to think of our nuptials as more along the lines of a Herman Munster -- loveable, cuddly, and wouldn't hurt a fly. But we've certainly never considered gay marriage a mean, angry, children-scaring monster. That's just silly! Right, Igor?

But then again, it is always an angry mob of torch-wielding villagers that serves as the Frankenstein monster's adversary...

...so maybe the neck bolt does fit after all!

Your thoughts

An interesting comparison, especially considering Frankenstein was written with numerous allusions to genesis and Paradise Lost. It is very much a book highlighting the obligations of parents. And all of those references to Mary Shelly not having a mother.

Damned fool...what the Massachusetts legislators did was totally democratic...meaning they held a second vote on the proposition and voted it down. God, I'm sto tired of them spewing the same old BS
