Staver: Marriage Equality is the End of America

Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Orly Taitz or Larry Klayman, has a dire warning for the Supreme Court. If they allow gay people to get married, it will be the “beginning of the end of America.” Be afraid, be very afraid!

    With any luck it will be the end of America

    At least his Amerika.

  2. Doug Little:

    I thought the beginning of the end was when the calender rolled into the 60′s.

    You’re correct. The end of America started in 1860. America is a pretty big country, and we’re running on an old out dated operating system, so it’s taking a while to power down.

  4. Doug Little:

    so it’s taking a while to power down

    Jeez how many daemons are there?

    So, you’re saying the Republicans were streamed to tape (or maybe punch cards) sometime before 1950, and that’s why they’re stuck in time?

    That’s a helluva lot better than my hypothesis, which was: they created them all in one big batch back in 1954, just like Twinkies, and they restock from that original batch at the beginning of every year.

    I thought the beginning of the end was when Bilbo found Golem’s precious.

  7. Gregory in Seattle:

    They said the same thing when antimiscegenation laws were overturned. And when the Civil Rights Act was passed. And with the Brown v. Board of Education ruling. And when women got the right to vote. And when the 14th Amendment was ratified.

    Crimeny, you would think that they could come up with a new way to clutch their pearls after all this time.

  8. Taz:

    He’s right, it’s going to have a big impact. Just a huge, massive impact. You can’t believe the size of the impact it’s going to have.
    I can’t give you any specifics, but trust me, it’s going to be the mother of all impacts.

    @blf #6
    Tolkien foul! Smeagol’s nickname was Gollum. A golem is an automaton made of clay & animated by a Jewish mystic. Not the same thing.

    I can’t wait to see what this list will look like in about 10 years. It’ll take Ed an hour to put up all the names.

    He could add Andy Schlafley, who thinks the theory of relativity is a liberal plot, right away. Andy was actually on the Harvard Law Review when Obama was the editor!

  12. cottonnero:

    Schlafly also has a problem with imaginary numbers, which I find eternally hilarious.

  13. fastlane:

    and I feel fine. ;)

  14. D. C. Sessions:

    I thought that “the beginning of the end of America” was Medicare. Or was it the New Deal?

  15. D. C. Sessions:

    Jeez how many daemons are there?

    We’re talking TSRs here. That should give you an idea.

  16. Ulysses:

    The really odd thing about Schafly’s rejection of relativity and negative numbers is that the guy’s bachelor’s degree (from Princeton) is in electrical engineering. He had to take several physics and mathematics courses, which should have told him that relativity and negative numbers both have bases in reality and have real world uses.

  17. D. C. Sessions:

    I’m having an interesting time imagining an EE curriculum that doesn’t use imaginary numbers.

    It’s not happening (as I go back to the Laplace transforms in for a filter function.)

  18. chilidog99:

    Just an aside, there is a new contender on the block for dumbest lawyer. actually three of them.

    Google up “Prenda Law” or visit popehat.com for a rundown on the whole sordid tale of the porn copyright troll kings.

  19. Didaktylos:

    @DC Sessions – it is surely no coincidence that if you rearrange the letters “Medicare” you end up with pretty much “America Dead”?
