The chairwoman of the Georgia Republican Party, Sue Everhart, is concerned. Very concerned. She’s concerned that if same-sex marriage is legalized, straight people might pretend to be gay and enter into sham marriages to get insurance benefits for a friend.
One woman who has not “gone red” is Georgia GOP Chairwoman Sue Everhart of east Cobb, although she’s aware of the movement.
“Lord, I’m going to get in trouble over this, but it is not natural for two women or two men to be married,” Everhart said. “If it was natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship.”
Everhart said while she respects all people, if same sex marriage is legalized across the country, there will be fraud.“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” Everhart said. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.”
Psss. Sue…I’ve got a bit of news for you. You might want to sit down for this. This can already happen with straight marriages. Do you think that’s a good argument against allowing people to get married? No? Then you now know how idiotic your argument is. I’m glad we had this talk. Go and be stupid no more.
