This week I spent some time looking around on the anti-gay-marriage Facebook page Marriage Conservation to see what kinds of arguments motivate the people who seemed most thoughtful and reasonable (i.e., not the ones who express a blind hatred for all things gay). My response to those arguments will be in “When Hate Stays in the Closet”, which I think will be out around 8 EST.
I don’t know if this post will convince anyone, but I hope it will at least explain why the rest of us don’t find these points as obvious and compelling as the “marriage conservationists” do. (Feel free to forward it to that aunt or cousin who keeps sending you anti-gay stuff.)
The weekly summary will discuss President Obama’s proposed Congressional authorization for the war against ISIL, Brian Williams, Jon Stewart, the Chapel Hill murders, and a few other things, before closing with a short video demonstrating how to make a clarinet out of a carrot. (Hard to believe Bugs Bunny never thought of that.)
