Of all the ridiculous arguments against gay rights, and gay marriage specifically, the single dumbest one has to be the “but if we don’t have children, the entire species will go extinct” argument. Naturally, the demon spawn of John Hagee thinks it’s terribly convincing.
Apparently convinced that this is a compelling and intelligent argument, Hagee repeated it on yesterday’s program, declaring that it is an “economical fact” that America needs more people and so allowing gay marriage will inevitably lead to the total collapse of society.
“It is impossible for same-sex marriage to do what biblical marriage does: create children,” Hagee said. “Without the procreation of children, the American society economically, will fail; culturally, will fail. It is not a matter of right or privilege, it’s a matter of survival.”
