Please shut up

Empire that - astoundingly - the broke absolultely no new ground. The proclamation's topic was that ever-popular, never-tired obsession, the sanctity of traditional marriage as it is defiled by those lego blocks of the Horned One, contraception, abortion, in-vitro fertilization and same-sex marriage, all "threats to 'the natural institution of marriage'". Talk about flogging a dead heretic.

Meanwhile over in everyone's favourite self-delusional successor to the Holy Roman Empire, the always reliable Sen. Rick Santorum and Justice Antonin Scalia have conflagrated the fight to enshrine hatred and discrimination into the American Constitution to a whole new level.
State laws against bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality, and obscenity are likewise sustainable only in light of Bowers' validation of laws based on moral choices. Every single one of these laws is called into question by today's decision; the Court makes no effort to cabin the scope of its decision to exclude them from its holding.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usThere are state laws against fornication? I thought the whole argument against same-sex marriage, aside from the always totally well-reasoned and never-ever-ever-based-on-ignorance moral statements, was that the whole reason for opposite-sex marriage is popping out caterwauling brats. And what's masturbation doing in there? Same-sex marriage equated with masturbation, bestiality, and reproduction; where's Freud when you need him?

*UPDATE* A reminder of why John Stewart is so great.
