Timothy Buchanan, who proudly lets everyone know that he’s the author of a book with the incredibly clever title The Boobonic Plague (Get it? That’s genius, right? No, not really), has a column at Barbwire with a hilariously idiotic rant about the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling. Let’s strap on our wings and let his rhetoric make us soar:
Friday, June 26th 2015 was a disastrous day for America, far worse than September 11, 2001.
The Supreme Court’s lawless and un-Constitutional ruling to strike down same-sex marriage bans in the United States was a reckless and sinister act that will affect every American for years to come. America is broken, and now, one of three things will follow:
- God’s judgment will fall upon the United States of America,
- There will be a second US civil war, not North against South or East versus West,
but of the righteous against the unrighteous, the heartland versus the coasts.
- Or there will be a Righteous Revolution, an Awakening of the Church.
Make no mistake, the decision to end state bans against same-sex marriage was not based upon Constitutional law. It was based upon nothing other than blind political ambition and a seething hatred for the laws of God. At least 82% of Americans oppose it. It is being enacted, not by democracy, but against the will of most of the people.
At least 82%! I don’t suppose you could, uh, show some evidence of that, Mr. Buchanan? But hey, I have lots of evidence that you’re wrong. A recent Pew poll: 57% support marriage equality. A Gallup poll in May: 60% support marriage equality. A CNN poll taken just after the Supreme Court ruling: 59% support marriage equality. Every single poll has found 55-60% support for same-sex marriage over the last couple years. You can’t find a poll showing 85% opposition to it even going back to 1996, when it first emerged as an issue. This is just a ridiculous lie.
