Roy Moore says gays' unions will destroy us; you're off the hook, robots

by Jeremy Hooper

Unknown-12And now a minute with activist judge Roy Moore:

"We can't keep disparaging our military and promoting things like same-sex marriage, L-G-B-T."

"Same sex marriage will be the ultimate destruction of our country because it destroys the very foundation upon which this nation is based. Divisive, I've been accused of being divisive I'll tell you what's divisive. It's this Democratic platform"

[SOURCE: AL.com]

Such a cop out, this whole "gonna ultimately destroy" us thing that is so astoundingly common among "pro-family" types. It would seem to give them lots of wiggle room. I mean, if the world explodes in ten billion years, are Moore's distant descendants gonna be like, "See, see—he warned you!"? We're not gonna be here to see it, even if that does happen. So it just seems to so lame to use phrases like "ultimate destruction." Such an easy out—as empirically pointless as it is rhetorically offensive.

If they said something like, "Jeremy Hooper's 2009 marriage started the time bomb ticking, and we're all set to explode sometime around 2017," I'd actually have slightly more respect. I mean, sure, I'd still disagree with the world-ending powers of marriages like mind, but at least I'd feel like my overheated foes were putting their reputations where their mouths are. The way it is now, it just sounds like empty hyperbole for which they will never take responsibility. That's not okay with me. Words have meaning—isn't that what the NOM crowd is always saying?

So yeah—step it up, Roy Moore. Put an end date on this whole pro-gay Earth thing. Tell us when, exactly, loving citizens are going to bring about Armageddon. Or I'll even give you a grace period of several months. Just give me a ballpark figure. If you're enough of a big, bad boy to lay such egregious claims at the feet of good and decent people, have the brass to tell us how, when, and why it'll all end. We want something resembling specifics.

Contact@goodasyou.org. I'll be waiting, tough guy. And in the meantime, until all of our lives meet a fiery end, I'll be loving the man who makes my mortality worthwhile.
