Video: Anti-gay IL pastor compares gay parents to 'five-year-olds who think they can drive cars'

by Jeremy Hooper

The first thing that annoys me about this clip is the reporter's acceptance of anti-gay side's loaded terminology, "protect traditional marriage." But then stick around until the 2:00 mark, when a local pastor compares gay parents like me to "five-year-olds who think they can drive cars":

FOX 13 News

Of course these folks will be rallying alongside one of the most overtly hostile organizations working in any of our states. Being compared to a reckless toddler with road rage might be tame compared to what else we'll hear today in Springfield.

Ah, the pro-discrimination caucus—what a movement!
