Indiana anti-gay activist equates same-sex union with marrying a sister, computer, toaster

by Jeremy Hooper

Before a federal appeals court stayed the lower court ruling, hundreds of same-sex couples managed to legally marry in the Hoosier state. And when people marry, they often place titon-marriageannouncements in local newspapers. Not a shocking concept.

But according to Micah Clark, the head of the American Family Association of Indiana, the newspaper was simply awful for allowing such malfeasance. You know, because same-sex marriage is pretty much like marrying a relative, a Macbook, or a bread-heater:

"The [Tipton County Tribune] decided to print an announcement of two young men who exchanged their vows," he tells OneNewsNow. "And as I've said, simply because someone 'exchanges vows' doesn't mean the newspaper has to applaud it with an announcement. I could exchange vows with my sister, with my computer, with my toaster – and that doesn't mean the newspaper has to applaud it and print it."

Ya see what he did there? He substituted a loving, consenting, non-blood-related human being for something he thinks you might find gross or weird. Did you catch the complex thinking or do you need more time to process? You good? Okay, let's move on.

Clark is encouraging his supporters on the discriminatory side of history to write the paper and make known their fiery rage. Though he does ask that everyone make up their own in artful comparisons.
