A few weeks ago, Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, came to Michigan for the annual gathering of the American Decency Association. Naturally, he came armed with dystopic predictions of the terrible damage same-sex marriage will do to the world.
Changing the definition of marriage is like trying to do away with gravity, Staver said. “It doesn’t matter how many opinions or how many votes you have for that, you can’t change God’s natural created order.”
“We’ve never been in this situation before,” he warned. “We will not be able to escape the coercive nature of this issue. It is cataclysmic in its change effect. It is, I believe, ultimately the beginning of the end of Western Civilization if we adopt this as a country.”
