Ryan T. Anderson of the conservative Heritage Foundation claims gay marriage bans “take nothing away from anyone.”
During an interview with LDS Church-owned KSL TV in Salt Lake City, Anderson incorrectly argued that marriage bans do not prohibit churches from marrying gay couples.
“As you lay out your arguments, many people may be unmoved because it seems like you aren't giving homosexuals the opportunity for true fulfillment, that society is justifying sacrificing some people's fulfillment at the sake of others. What is your response to that?” Anderson was asked.
“Marriage laws take nothing away from anyone,” replied Anderson, the author of What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense. “In all 50 states, two people of the same sex can live with each other and love each other. If their house of worship recognizes same-sex marriage, they can have a wedding there. If their business wants to give them marriage benefits, the business can. That’s very much a live and let live society. What’s at stake with the redefinition of marriage is: will the law redefine what marriage is and then force every community, every religious community, except for the four walls of a church, every business community, into treating the same-sex relationship as if it’s a marriage, even when it violates their beliefs about marriage? But defining marriage as between a man and a woman so that as many children as possible have a mother and a father in no way infringes upon the liberty of any American to live and to love how they choose to.”
I have an idea, let me strap Ryan to the discipline saw horse in my play room and with a nice, fresh birch wood cane, whack his naked, white ass, once for ever benefit denied same sex couples and see just how long it takes for him to realize that he might not exactly realize how we might like to share in those marriage benefits equally.
I'm betting, he'll soon be able to recite the reasons why his statement is a complete load of utter fucktardery and that his religious freedoms end where they infringe on other peoples rights and if he's a really good boi, I might let him clean my ass with his tongue.
