I’m always amused and baffled when anti-gay bigots make arguments based on the ridiculous premise that if we allow gay people to get married, no one will have children anymore. The latest demagogue to make this argument is a Pentecostal megapreacher from Nigeria:
Pastor E. A. Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God wrote on Facebook over the weekend that he had recently been grilled by the press over his views on homosexuality.
“[T]hey said they believe I hate homosexuals,” he explained. “I don’t hate anyone and you can do whatever you want to.”
“But man marry man and woman marry woman. Then no need to stop global warming because soon there won’t be new born children.”
He added: “What’s that they want to adopt, who will give birth to the child and how?”
Okay dumbass, explain how this is supposed to happen. If we allow gay people to get married, is every straight person on earth going to turn gay? Are you going to turn gay? I’m certainly not. Is The Gay that overwhelmingly tempting? Is it that amazing that no one will be able to resist its siren call? Or will straight people just stop having babies all of a sudden? This is a moronic argument.
