Alveda King’s Amusing Denial of Reality

Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King who spends every waking moment disgracing his memory while attempting to borrow his moral credibility, takes the “it’s impossible for gay people to get married, by definition” argument to its absurd conclusion:

During the Family Research Council’s panel on marriage equality yesterday, conservative activist Alveda King said that it is “impossible” for two people of the same sex to marry.

“It’s impossible to marry two men to each other or two women, it’s just not possible,” King said. “The two cannot become one. It is biologically impossible, scientifically impossible, emotionally impossible, definitely spiritually impossible. You can actually hold a gun, Heaven forbid, and say, ‘do this marriage,’ now he or she may say, ‘okay,’ or they may say, ‘I won’t,’ but even if they speak the words, it is not possible, it is impossible. We have to be able to articulate that on all the levels we just said: spiritual, physical, science.”

Imagine that the Saudi government suddenly decided that women could drive and started issuing them licenses. And imagine that a Muslim imam declared that it is impossible for a woman to drive because God doesn’t want women to drive. The fact that they actually do begin driving is a pretty clear disproof of his claim that it’s “impossible” for them to do. The same applies here. Regardless of how “impossible” she thinks it is, gay people can, do and are getting married, all over the country. And that reality won’t budge to your fantasies about its impossibility.

    Regardless of how “impossible” she thinks it is, gay people can, do and are getting married, all over the country.

    Not to mention the 24 countries that recognize same sex marriage and are not “the country”.

    I don’t find this amusing. To me, it’s more-of-the-same, a cultist sharing their stupidity.

    Xtians and others: get this through your Cultist heads – your opinions are not wanted, not needed, and *not* interesting.

    It’s impossible to marry two men to each other or two women, it’s just not possible,” King said. yada, yada, yada.

    This is total gibberish.

    If SSM is impossible, then why does Alveda King and the Family Hate Council care?

    I could care less if they recognize any marriages as being real.

    After all, I don’t recognize their gods as being real or their religion as having any value or connection to reality. I don’t recognize Alveda King as having anything whatsoever worthwhile to say either.

    If it’s impossible, then why all the resistance?

    And, more importantly, why did it take me eight minutes longer than raven to type the same thing with less words?

    Ms. King, how is same-sex marriage science* impossible?

    *The adjectival form is “scientific”, but I’m trying to communicate with you in your own formulation.

    Sometimes the apple falls off the tree and is too damaged to be considered any good.

    “It’s impossible to marry two men to each other or two women, it’s just not possible,” King said. “The two cannot become one. It is biologically impossible, scientifically impossible, emotionally impossible, definitely spiritually impossible.

    The only real hope she has of establishing that gay marriage is “impossible” is by talking about spiritual impossibility — and that’s only because “spiritual” claims are a no-holds-barred fact-free make- up -whatever-shit- you- want -with -no -checks- in -reason -or -reality area. Big fat deal. It’s also “spiritually impossible” that God could be against gay marriage — if you ask other believers. All bells and whistles with no substance beneath.

    This is the same sort of smug and sloppy certainty we find in assertions about how it’s impossible for God not to exist or it’s impossible for the universe to exist without God or it’s impossible that she, Alveda King, can be wrong about God because God is never wrong. They don’t think it’s possible to think outside of the self-referential box of religious faith. The limitations aren’t in reality, they’ve been placed on their imaginations.

    It’s impossible for a man to walk on water, it’s just not possible. It is biologically impossible, scientifically impossible, emotionally impossible, definitely spiritually impossible. You can actually hold a gun, Heaven forbid, and say, ‘walk on water,’ now he or she may say, ‘okay,’ or they may say, ‘I won’t,’ but even if they speak the words, it is not possible, it is impossible. We have to be able to articulate that on all the levels we just said: spiritual, physical, science.”

    “We have to be able to articulate that on all levels. . . .”

    OK — that’s funny. That’s really funny.
