Farah: Marriage Equality Advocates Just Like Terrorists

Joseph Farah must have had an extra bowl of Wheaties one morning recently, because he managed to up the ante even on his usual inanity in this Worldnutdaily column where he declares that advocates of marriage equality are just like Muslim terrorists.

Same-sex marriage advocates no more care about the legality of same-sex marriage than Hamas cares about the creation of a Palestinian state.

Neither is interested in creating something new – something that has never been before. Instead, what same-sex marriage advocates and the terrorists of the Gaza Strip have in common is their desire to destroy something they find repulsive. In Gaza, it’s the Jewish state of Israel. Among homosexual activists, it’s the institution of marriage.

By making the bogus claim that marriage, as it has been known through the eons, is inherently unfair because some people don’t want to participate in it as it has always been defined, homosexual activists are able to establish for themselves what appears to be the political high ground of the victim. In exactly the same way, Arab terrorists are able to portray themselves as the victim by claiming they have been denied a state.

The mind of the wingnut is truly a wondrous place. Amusingly, reactionary Muslims are in full agreement with Farah that gay people are evil sinners who should be punished by society and denied equal rights. Bryan Fischer would be proud of this kind of projection.

    Somehow I think that the views of Hamas (and Hizbollah and the Taliban for that matter) and Farah relative to same sex marriage are in complete accord.

    Well I can’t talk for the terrorists in the Gaza Strip but I would say that is accurate on the part of same-sex marriage advocates in that they want to destroy inequality, which if you are a decent human being should find repulsive. It’s a shame he actually went on to clarify what he meant.

    Joseph “Dumbass” Farah: By making the bogus claim that marriage, as it has been known through the eons, is inherently unfair because some people don’t want to participate in it….

    Ha ha ha ha! See what he did there? I have to admit, it’s a pretty clever bit of rhetorical sleight of hand.

    Actually Joe, “[i]n 342 AD Christian emperors Constantius II and Constans issued a law in the Theodosian Code (C. Th. 9.7.3) prohibiting same-sex marriage in Rome and ordering execution for those so married”*. Hmm – seems that gay marriage must have existed for it to be banned by law.
    Oops bang goes that theory, but I’m sure you’ve got a plan B, right Joe?

    Yeah, remember when those middle-aged lesbians hijacked a plane using box-cutters and crashed it into the city hall of…oh, wait…

    Seems to me that the hallmark, the distinguishing characteristic of a “terrorist” is the use of this thing called “terror.”

    Unless you’re a wingnut, in which case it’s “someone who disagrees with me.”

    Notice how everything on planet wingnuttia is now equated with “Islamofascists” and terrorists?

    Muslim terrorist: The new black.

    It’s funny that way. They even use it on themselves when they agree with fundie Islam and admire or seek to emulate Islamofascists because they are “more moral” than American Christians for stoning people to death or performing terrorist acts for some perceived offense instead of merely clutch their pearls.

    It must be very confusing to simultaneously love and fear terrorists.

    Farah’s faith in traditional marriage is so weak that small gust of wind will destroy it. Or so one would believe from his fear.

    Well: since according to wingnuts atheistic muslims Commie-Nazis are a real threat, then I suppose that egalitarian antisemitic feminist rectionary Muslims may look like a credible thing in wingnuts’ eyes.

    That’s not love, it’s pure lust. Just like they lust after and fear women.

    Same-sex marriage advocates no more care about the legality of same-sex marriage than Hamas cares about the creation of a Palestinian state.

    This douchebag must think that laws are written in stone and unchanging, like the supposed 10 rules of stupidity from the genocidal scumbag manual. But then tablets can be broken and new laws written. Same as now.

    It’s funny how they don’t get that laws change. Slavery isn’t legal anymore in most modern nations–because laws changed. Women have the vote–because laws changed.

    Same sex marriage laws can change. And when they do, then can we say that you don’t care about the legality of it? I mean, that’s what he’s asking for, when it is legal all across America–and it will be.

    Neither is interested in creating something new – something that has never been before.

    See above.

    Instead, what same-sex marriage advocates and the terrorists of the Gaza Strip have in common is their desire to destroy something they find repulsive.

    Yes, bigotry against gays and denying them the right to have a legal and economic partnership with the one they love is repulsive, Joe, and is something that needs to be destroyed.

    Unlike Hamas, however, we who support same sex marriage are willing to change the law within the framework of the Constitution and laws of our states, peacefully, through civil action and discourse, not by bombing people. We leave that to the woman-hating anti-abortion slime that scumbags like you support. Why can’t those anti-abortion people respect the law, Joe?

    In Gaza, it’s the Jewish state of Israel. Among homosexual activists, it’s the institution of marriage.

    In America it’s legal to have an abortion. Why do you assholes, like terrorists, find it necessary to bomb people to change a law that you hate, rather than other, more peaceful means?

    By making the bogus claim that marriage, as it has been known through the eons

    So you’re for polygamy, I take it? That was in your genocidal manual, after all.

    is inherently unfair because some people don’t want to participate in it as it has always been defined

    It hasn’t always been defined that way. And why should people lie to the person they’re with about how they are? Why should they be with someone that they don’t want to be with?

    Why don’t you give a shit about the people who would go into the marriages thinking they would be with a partner who saw things how they did–and had a liar on their hands. A liar your hate creates?

    Fuck off.

    homosexual activists are able to establish for themselves what appears to be the political high ground of the victim.

    Because they are victims–of your hate, and your superstitious fuckfacery, asshole.

    In exactly the same way, Arab terrorists are able to portray themselves as the victim by claiming they have been denied a state.

    Some of them are victims, some aren’t. Regardless they choose to pursue their goals in remarkably different ways from the gay activists in America. Again, the anti-abortion slime pursue things the way that those terrorists you’re so afraid of do, and you’re not heaping lies and abuse on them.

    Moronic scumbag.

    Dipshit: Instead, what same-sex marriage advocates and the terrorists of the Gaza Strip have in common is their desire to destroy something they find repulsive.

    Wait, I consider myself a “same-sex marriage advocate” and therefor according to Farah must “desire to destroy” so called traditional marriage (because I supposedly find it so “repulsive”).

    And yet I’m a happily married (21 years) heterosexual.

    Does not compute.

    Just for once, just once, I’d like to see the logical connection between ‘gay marriage’ and ‘damage to heterosexual marriage’. Anything. Any tiny little bit of evidence that when I marry my partner of 21 years (or however long it will have been when they finally get round to changing the law in Auastralia) somewhere a heterosexual marriage will suffer.
    On a related note, I saw a great placard at a marriage equality protest – ‘When do I get to vote on your marriage?’.

    That may have been a good question ten years ago, but now with several states and several nations recognizing same sex marriage, I think it’s now time to demand empirical evidence.

    I formerly had a “friend”–really a high-school acquaintance–on Facebook who informed me that gay marriage advocates (like me–my marriage is one of the 18000 legal same-sex marriages in CA) had reached the same point as the proponents of the French Revolution had when the Terror began. Whuh?!?!?! He was quickly de-friended, and blocked, even. And he has a medical degree from a well-regarded university–i.e., he’s supposed to know something about science and something about weighing evidence. As some background explanation, he was raised as a Mormon and was apparently still extremely bitter about his own divorce–must’ve overbalanced whatever training in rationality he’d had.
