Religious right spokesman continues fascination with perverting marriage equality

The Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber is giving 'Porno Pete' LaBarbera a run for his money when it comes to perverting marriage equality and the gay community in general as paens of sexual hedonism.



According to Right-Wing Watch:

Matt Barber declared that gay activists don't actually want marriage equality but rather are interested in "deconstructing the Judeo-Christian notion of marriage as marriage has always been."  In fact, Barber claimed, the institution of marriage has always been about restricting which sorts of relationships are legitimate, which is why "people can't marry children, people can't marry close relatives, people can't marry their favorite pet."  Barber then warned that if "we're going to break the institution of marriage and radically redefine it" then "polygamy is inevitable if same-sex marriage becomes the law of the land and we can no longer have prohibitions on incestuous marriage.

I would submit that the LGBT community's pursuit of marriage doesn't deconstruct the Judeo-Christian's idea of marriage - it supports it.

I wish people would get their biblical marriage right is not what they think. Those kinky Hebrews: marriage in the Judeo-Christian scriptures http://jmm.org.au/articles/30471.htm

Well at least he didn't say it leads to bestiality

Uhm, people CAN marry close relatives. 33 states have laws on the books that allow first cousins to marry. 33 states. If you're going to compare gay marriage to incestuous marriages, at least you can get your facts straight, Mr. Barber.

How does same-sex marriage LEAD to polygamy, and why does it have to bring about incestuous marriage? His assumption of the above is like saying flies cause manure to exist.

So Barber is couching polygamy, incest and bestiality into his little hate speech.

That part about marrying pets was the tip to bestiality.

Why does he speak as if same-sex marriage are hypothetical? There are quite a few countries that have had it for years. Have any of then gone down that path? In fact, the countries where polygamy, child marriage, and marriage to relatives are legal / accepted practice are **exactly** those countries with the harshest laws against homosexuals and their relationships.

I love how that video has already been removed by the user. Must have been some painful interview!
