I'll remind you that FRC also compared our marriages to human-horse unions

by Jeremy Hooper

Today a picture is floating around the internet of a Mississippi pastor who is drawing a direct comparison between same-sex marriage and man-on-horse unions:

And of course people are calling it outlandish and crazy and nutso. Because it is.

But you know what else it is? The exact same thing that the anti-equality movement's top D.C. policy shop did just a few years ago. In fact, is was the setup for a recent Family Research Council pamphlet arguing against marriage equality:

And that's the thing with most of these crazy, fringe, bizarro world claims that extremists use against us. If you look around, you'll find that most of these claims have made their way into the "mainstream" anti-LGBT world as well. They're just usually a little more clever about how they package them (i.e. no street corners and/or cardboard and/or actual mares and/or misspelling of the word "ban").
