Other options gone, NJ's top anti-gay voice resorts to denigration; gay unions = 'conjugal mismatch' & 'biological falsehood'

by Jeremy Hooper

Marriage is legal and loving couples are already taking part. This being New Jersey's reality, the man who has been working for marriage discrimination for so many years has little left to do other than cast those same loving couples out of normalcy's spectrum:

Screen Shot 2013-10-21 At 9.28.21 Pm"The nature of marriage transcends the decrees of man. A judge can order the law to include squares in the definition of circles, but no judge can change the mathematical realities that geometry is founded on. Likewise, the court can invent new configurations that it calls ‘marriages,’ but it can never change the way a child is conceived or conjure social stability out of a biological falsehood and conjugal mismatch.”

Len Deo, president of New Jersey Family Policy Council

It's always oh so charming when straight men tell me about the fallacy and/or mismatch that apparently greets my and my husband's marital bed. One part of me is always like, "Want us to show you?" while another, much larger part is like, "We need to get some of those 'do not disturb' hotel signs for our home bedroom, apparently."

But hey, if Len wants to spend his days drawing diagrams of sticks and holes, let's get out of the way and let him. The rest of us will sit back and enjoy the soothing ticks of clocks that reliably run forward.
