Video: Yea, and interracial nups bans were FOR certain kinds of marriage too!

by Jeremy Hooper

Here's another clip from last night's airing of "God's Christian Warriors," this one featuring Ohio's Russell Johnson:

Bravo to Christiane Amanpour for calling into question Johnson's "not against people, but for marriage" line. After all, while this text technically does not say "screw the gays"...

Be it Resolved by the People of the State of Ohio: That the Constitution of the State of Ohio be amended by adopting a section to be designated as Section 11 of Article XV thereof, to read as follows:Article XV Section 11. Only a union between one man and one woman may be a marriage valid in or recognized by this state and its political subdivisions. This state and its political subdivisions shall not create or recognize a legal status for relationships of unmarried individuals that intends to approximate the design, qualities, significance or effect of marriage.

...no insulting or immoral ban in the history of American governance has ever admitted that it was truly cruel and mean-spirited towards the population it was targeting. So no matter how many times marriage ban proponents use these tired lines to make themselves feel better about their discriminatory actions, both the gay community and history will recognize the truth.

Unfortunately, it probably won't be until the Christiane Amanpour Report "Why Did Hell Freeze Over?" that we'll hear the evangelical community admit they were both inhumane and un-American for subjecting us to these barbaric bans.

Your thoughts

Go Christiane! I'm reminded of a Star Trek quote that seems so apropos right now:

"[V]illains who twirl their mustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well-camouflaged."
-- Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart)

Classic. "Not against people, but for marriage," besides the fact there wasn't an issue with marege to support before us gay "people" stood up for it.
