Video: Congressman Kingston filibusters with canards b/c he has no acceptable answer to student's marriage concerns

by Jeremy Hooper

The audio is hard to hear, but if you listen in closely to the answers Congressman Jack Kinston (R-GA1) provides to a University of Georgia student's (sometimes pointed, glib) questions about marriage equality, you will hear a whole flurry of those popular far-right talking points.

"Slippery slope" to the wholly separate issue of polygamy? Check.

Fears about the marital non-requirement that is procreation (something that is not logically affected by legalizing the same-sex partnerships that have existed for all time)? Check.

Claim that voting on minority civil rights is a good thing to do "in a democracy"? Check.

Contrived "culture war" positions with an utter sense of untenability, which will likely fall away before this student reaches his thirtieth birthday? Check, check, check.


Listen in (closely) as the Family Research Council's big legislative ally alienates the future:
