In 'USA Today,' CWA president equates marriage equality with 'vices' like prostitution

by Jeremy Hooper

This is part of a lengthy piece about those who oppose us. There are many notable oversights that fail to paint a full picture of who these folks are and what they've said about us (Rev. Willie Owens gets one of the most notable passes). PnanceBut you at least have to give Concerned Woman For America (and NOM March For Marriage speaker) Penny Nance points for honestly owning her beliefs:

Despite her beliefs, [Concerned Women For America's Penny Nance] — like all the other opponents — has gay friends and family. "We feel for them, and we care deeply about their well-being," she says, yet she worries that government acceptance will boost their numbers.

"When the law rewards something through licensing or benefits, there is always increased activity," Nance says. "We see this with marijuana in California, or gambling, prostitution, abortion or any vice that is legalized. Government endorsement lures people who would abstain otherwise."

FULL PIECE: Gay marriage? These voices say 'No' and explain why [USA Today]

Because that's how it works, right? One day you're all kinds of attracted to the opposite sex, and then one day—BOOM!—we go an legalize gay marriage. With that, you instantly realize, "Eureka! I want to now have the sex that I never before craved!" Your life uprooted by the civil licensing options now at your feet (or crotch, as it were).

Except not. At all.

If Penny really cares for her gay friends and family, she will learn a little more about what sexual orientation is. She has one. They have one, Hopefully neither are dependent on golden rings to activate/negate.
