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.
