Some arguments never die … even in the wake of a Supreme court ruling that gay and lesbian Americans are a little bit … a little bit … more equal.
Last Friday, Josh Robinson, a cornerback for the Minnesota Vikings, trotted out some old arguments about same-sex marriage being just like incest and pedophilia in a Twitter meltdown week:
"Love is love? So what will we say when the 30yr old loves YOUR 10 year old. When the dad loves HIS 6 year old” It’s different?? Yea okay!”
Um, Josh? Incest has been around as long as people have been around and has never had anything to do with anyone’s orientation; it’s about power, it’s about sexual abuse. The same goes for pedophilia.
Bitch, please! Robinson then defended his stance:
“EVERYONE has a right to believe what they want to believe. You shared yours, I shared mine.”
So please, refrain from spewing ignorance, Josh. The Gays are no more likely to be guilty of incest or pedophilia than straight folks, straight men, Josh, like yourself who represent the greatest risk of being pedophiles if we go by the numbers, Josh. So, please, be careful where you cast that first stone.
And also, Josh, tread a history book before you speak out; read what people who were against interracial marriage said back in the day; they said if whites and blacks could marry, then why not allow people to marry animals, or children, or family members.
It’s the same old argument Josh, only now you’re using it against The Gays when once upon a time it would have been used against you, had you wanted to marry a white woman.
Were they right? No … and neither are you.
