Audio: 'Fool' me once, shame on James Bowman

by Jeremy Hooper

Think marriage equality for same-sex couples constitutes something other than a "drastic or far-reaching change to 'the institution of marriage'"? Well then you are nothing more than a "fool," says a contributor to this Focus on the Family news report:

Well then in that case, Mr. Bowman, "fools" we will gladly be. Because those of us in or around areas where same-sex marriage is a reality 20030418 Jbowman W150 H200-1know that there is nothing drastic about gay and lesbian inclusion into the system. We also know that addition does not equate subtraction. And we know that there's nothing far-reaching about the kind of hand movement that checks two male or female boxes on a licensing form rather than one of each.

In fact, in a world where thousands of same-sex couples are legally marrying without any discernible societal disruption, one can quite easily argue that it's the "protect marriage" proponents who are take the anti-intellectual position here. But we don't have to use ad hominem words like "fool" to assess our opposition. "Wrong" will do just fine.
