Unreasonable People Can't Agree.

Why I despise Maggie Gallagher: John Hawkins asks her, "How can it [gay marriage] hurt the number of people getting married? How can it decrease it?"

She replies:

I don't think it's going to hurt my marriage -- but, I think it's going to change the definition of marriage for every person going forward and it's going to affect young people particularly. I don't understand how we're going to raise young men to be good family men in a culture where the government tells them that the idea that a child has a father as well as a mother is an example of hateful bigotry -- but, that's what gay marriage is about. That's saying if you see any difference between gay and straight, (you're bigoted). If you can't distinguish between these two things with regard to marriage, there is nowhere you can distinguish them. My own view is that same sex unions are not marriage. If the government passes a law that says ducks are chickens, it doesn't make it true....

It doesn't get much more pernicious than that. Here you have the leading spokesbigot for the anti-gay marriage movement saying, ahem, that "gay marriage" is "hateful bigotry."

Arguing with such crazies is futile. All that's left is savage mockery.
