Balt. Sun's Rodricks smacks down Peter 'let's outlaw gay behavior' Sprigg

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2012-02-01 At 12.11.35 PmHad activists and bloggers not kept it in focus, the infamous MSNBC hit where Family Research Council Senior Fellow Peter Sprigg called for the criminalization of gay "behavior" probably would've fallen into obscurity. So it's to our credit that we've kept that clip, as well as the one where Peter says he'd prefer to "export homosexuals," in the media spotlight. Because since we have done so, columnists from The Baltimore Sun can use them to lay the smack down on Peter, his motivations, and the ridiculous twists and turns he takes in his testimony to the Maryland state legislature order to reach the anti-gay conclusion built into his obviously preconceived script.

Dan Rodricks:

"If you think gays and lesbians should be locked up, you certainly can't approve of issuing them marriage licenses."
The absurd arguments against same-sex marriage [Balt. Sun]
