If you think gay people getting married is a problem, then you're the one with an actual problem.

Of course, unlike the nonsense from Janelle's video, we have real-world laboratories to see what happens when people get married: Massachusetts and Holland, Connecticut and Canada, Iowa and Norway, and several other countries and states. And in these real-world laboratories, we see none of the doom-and-gloom nonsense being peddled actually playing out.

But I understand that some people have a hard time differentiating the way they really want things to be and what actually happens in the real world.

All you homophobes and bigots really need to just get over it. In another twenty or thirty years, there probably won't be many who even remember when marriage equality wasn't the law of the land.

Seriously?

Look at other countries that already have SSM. They aren't falling apart at the seams.

The Catholic "hope" for homosexuals is to encourage them to be celibate.

F-that. The Catholic Church has zero moral authority on ANY matters involving sexuality.


BTW, is it just my screen, or is the Catholic Apologetics hiring Oompa Loompa lawyers to speak these days?
