Ohio’s Secretary of State is coming out strong in support of Issue One, the measure that would ban same-sex marriage. Kenneth Blackwell spoke to an energized crowd at the Cathedral of Praise Tuesday night.
Blackwell said it’s time for people of God to take a stand. He even drew a comparison between same-sex couples and farm animals. “I don’t know how many of you have a farming background but I can tell you right now that notion even defies barnyard logic … the barnyard knows better,” said Blackwell referring to the idea of same-sex marriage.
By this I take it that ol’ Kenny means gays are morally beneath even these critters. Far be it for me to assign more than basic instinct to animals and their mating habits, but homosexual behavior has been observed in all “barnyard animals” including cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, along with quite a number of species in the animal kingdom. This of course doesn’t mean a thing on whether homosexuality is moral or not, innate or not, etc., but it certainly does reveal Blackwell to be an ignorant boob. He is free to hold whatever religious view he wishes, including about my sexuality, but kindly keep your paws off of my rights and direct your narrow-minded idiocies elsewhere. Surely ol’ Kenny wouldn’t care for anyone to dredge up abandoned reasoning, from Scripture no less, why blacks are supposedly inherently inferior to whites?
When will the Republicans free themselves of these people who treat faith as some cheap whore in order to curry favor and gain power?
