Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, is in a frothing rage over the Supreme Court’s judicial inactivism on same-sex marriage. He says gay marriage won’t just destroy the family, won’t just destroy America, but will destroy all of western civilization!
“When less people get married and you have more children out of wedlock, when you destabilize the institution of marriage, you make the economy poorer and you make the society unstable. That’s exactly what we’re having and that’s what we’re going to see here in America and around the world,” he said. “When you tinker with the very basic foundation of family and you assume that gender doesn’t matter, you ultimately affect the rest of society and the strength of civil government.”
Beyond mere social unrest, Staver warned that recent rulings in marriage cases have sent us hurtling towards self-destruction. “This is something that I believe is the beginning of the end of western civilization. You can’t simply redefine and pretend that ontological differences between men and women do not exist. This will have consequences.”
Seriously, could you say something that stupid without feeling some shame over it? I don’t think I could. But he doesn’t know he’s stupid, so I guess he can.
