What do animals have to do with the same-sex marriage debate?
MSNBC - Connected Coast-to-Coast: Ron Regan, Jr.: "Now you know what this debate means: Let the gay-bashing begin. Named the fave right wing sport for several years running, gay-bashing always gets a big boost from the so-called 'gay marriage' debate.
Much of it is entirely predictable, even kind of amusing. Homophobes don't seem to get what the rest of us are hip to-- that the people most worked up about other folk's sexuality tend to be insecure about their own. Their lips may say 'sanctity of marriage' but we hear 'closet case.'
Two obvious thought arise: First, the two issues are entirely unrelated. On the one hand you have two humans wanting to get hitched; on the other, a drunken farmer and outraged sheep. Second, these people need help and we're not talking a trip to the petting zoo.
A word of advice to the gay-unfriendly fringe: ix-nay on the animal stuff. Whatever point you're trying to make, this can't be helping. And besides, it's just plain creepy."
