Force behind Virginia's marriage ban ably demonstrates animus behind it

by Jeremy Hooper

201407290852These man who co-wrote Virginia's discriminatory marriage amendment, Del. Bob Marshall (R), responded to yesterday's 4th Circuit ruling in favor of marriage equality by further proving why bans like the one he championed will all be invalidated in short order. Here are some of his animus-laden quotes:

"advocates and defenders of so-called same sex marriage are their own best undertakers for their hubris in attempting to deny and defy the 'Laws of Nature and Nature’s God'.”
"a civil right based on immoral behavior including acts that disqualify individuals from giving blood."
"Judges Gregory and Floyd, who opine that two men or two women may 'marry' each other do not define what they mean by 'marriage,' don’t explain what consummates a homosexual 'marriage' or why their decision does not support polygamy or marriages between adults and children 'who love each other.' Will three lesbian women in Massachusetts, a 'throuple,' move to Virginia to have their aberrant 'marriage' relationship sanctioned by Judges Gregory and Floyd?"
"amoral agenda"
"a radical and immoral marriage regime on American citizens in defiance of the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God
"tear the social fabric in ways that can scarcely be imagined"

You have to wonder what is going through these increasingly option-less aggressors' noggins. One of the key reasons these marriage bans are falling is because Americans are waking up to what we equality activists knew years ago: that these bans are little more than hostility disguised as "marriage protection." Once you cut through the crap and realize the hostility that drives these marriage amendments, even folks less inclined to support LGBT rights generally find these bans impossible to support.

And yet the folks who birthed these biased babies think that doubling down on the animus is a smart strategy for moving forward? Really? I mean, don't let me stop you—but really?!
