Video: Bob Emrich admits he thinks homosexuality is wrong (and we're fine with that)

by Jeremy Hooper

In the following clip, Bob Emrich comes right out and admits that his campaign against marriage equality (which he is waging in tandem with NOM and others) is built around his personal resistance to homosexuality itself:

Totally fine that Bob stands against LGBT humans. He's allowed to feel that way. Personally, I'm glad he's coming right out and admitting what we've always known.

And he's also 100% free to deny a marriage to anyone he wishes. We're fine with that. Nobody is trying to make him "I do" anyone who he doesn't wish to "I do." Can't imagine any same-sex couple would ever ask him to do so, since most of us prefer our wedding days to be filled with smiles, not shuns.

Actually, Bob, most of us are totally fine with everything you say in the above clip (or at least your right to say it). What we're not okay with is your constant attempt to inscribed these, your personally-held condemnations, into public policy. If you would just take the sought-after concessions and separations that we are more than ready to give you, this conversation could end right here.
