Alan Keyes: 50 state marriage equality = 'more grievous' attack than that which led to Revolutionary War

After all, he believes it to be a "more grievous" attack than the catalysts that led to the Revolutionary War:

...no humanly fabricated right can be allowed to deny or disparage the unalienable right essential for the natural conception and perpetuation of humanity itself. Such denigration of antecedent unalienable right would not only be unconstitutional, it would explicitly contravene the aim (to secure unalienable rights) for which all governments are instituted in the first place.

This would be an attack on the people of the United States more grievous than that which led the first generation of Americans to declare their independence from Great Britain. If even a significant minority of Americans continue in their attachment to the unalienable right of liberty (as opposed to the licentious freedom that has, in some quarters usurped that name) this attack is likely to produce the separation and dissolution of the United States, for like humanity itself the United States is inconceivable apart from respect for God-endowed unalienable right.

Nah. I think we'll be okay. And frankly, if the American experiment is not strong enough to survive the expansion of love and freedoms, then its alchemy was flawed from the start.

Although I am going to kind of miss these kinds of histrionics in a few months, when we will no longer have to care.
