The Todd & Don show today opened with two minutes (before I changed channels) talking about how great it was that the Clerk in Austin has signed off on the first “gay marriage” license in Texas. They mocked those of us who understand things better than they do:
“So now two people got married, I guess your marriage is falling apart hahaha”
To which I will respond with reductio ad absurdum:
So now someone stole grapes from the grocery store, I guess you don’t have as much fruit at your house hahaha
So now a woman got raped, I guess your vagina hurts hahaha
Someone was murdered I guess now you are dead hahaha
Just because something doesn’t have an immediate direct negative effect in my life, does not mean it is good for us to allow it to go on. To argue that your opponent is somehow oafish or foolish to think something should not be allowed to go on “just” because it is bad for society, is to highlight your status as an oaf, fool, or both.
I take this opportunity to remind you of my excellent essay on the topic of why “gay marriage” is bad, and why it is even so much as a topic of discussion (let alone an actual thing) in the modern USAmerican political discourse.
They kept repeating on the radio how this one couple of lickers was granted a special case because one of them is “medically fragile” due to having cancer. Well excuuuuuuse me I think I should be allowed to get away with robbing your house because I have cancer. I should be allowed to walk up to you and slit your throat will screaming how my god is the best, because I have cancer. What a bunch of jerks!
