Illinois is about to become the 15th state to give legal recognition to same-sex marriages and Peter LaBarbera, who hails from that state, is none too happy about it. And the argument he makes absolutely cracks me up. He says it doesn’t matter what the law says:
Peter LaBarbera heads Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, which is based in the Chicago suburb of Naperville.
“It’s very sad to see the Land of Lincoln now on the verge of officially defying God with our marriage laws,” he tells OneNewsNow. “No matter what happens through the law or what politicians do, two men will never really be married, nor will two women. Marriage is one man, one woman.”
Then shouldn’t you just shut up about it? If you and your imaginary friend refuse to consider them married no matter what, then why does it matter to you? I’m sure gay couples are perfectly content with you sitting on your porch muttering “they ain’t married as far as I’m concerned” until the cows come home.
