Jim Garlow is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. The wingnut preacher from San Diego predicted last year that if Obama was reelected, America would be destroyed. And he recently lose his wife to cancer. Unfortunately, he used that as an opportunity to make an idiotic argument against marriage equality in an email to his congregation:
On occasion I would read phrases in newspapers or blogs to describe me as being “anti-gay” or “anti gay-marriage.” First, I am not against homosexual “marriage” because there is no such thing. I cannot be against something that does not exist according to God’s definition.
But I am adamantly pro authentic, historic marriage. And God’s Word on the subject, along with an indescribably spectacular 42 years with Carol, caused me to be so intensely pro (natural) marriage.
I was once asked by a secular news reporter, “Has your love for Carol and her cancer battle impacted your fight for marriage.” “Yes,” I responded. Why? Because I saw the wonder of covenantal one man-one woman marriage. I saw the sheer delight of authentic, biblical, natural, historic, God-defined marriage. The complimentary halves of humanity coming together is simply breathtaking.
More like braintaking, in this case.
