Iowa GOP Congressman—and asshat—Steve King is very unhappy with the United States Supreme Court. Well, not the whole court, mainly Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.
In fact, he wants them impeached for their pro-equality ruling, and because they each had the nerve, the nerve, to officiate same-sex wedding.
“That provision does exist, and let’s hear what the public has to say. If that were put up before me today, and I think I mentioned Ginsburg and Kagan as being two that had been conducting same-sex marriages on their spare time and did not recuse themselves, I would put up the vote to remove them from office. But I don’t know if the public is ready for that.”
King — like many of his GOP loons and cohorts in idiocy — called for “nationwide civil disobedience” and encouraged states to simply “abolish civil marriage.”
“By doing so we can avoid the litigation that’s coming at every one of our churches [because LGBT rights activists] will not stop until they can force a priest to conduct a same-sex marriage at the altar of a Catholic church.”
Um, Steve? Moron? Take the foil hat off and listen to me, m’kay? As a government employee and an elected official, though how that continues to happen I do not know, surely you have heard of a little thing called Separation of Church and State?
Yeah, that thing; that means the government cannot force a church or priest or pastor or rabbi or shaman or wiccan priest, who chooses not to do so, to perform a same-sex wedding ceremony.
And let’s get another thing queer: if you wanna do away with civil marriage, please do so by making it retroactive to cover every single married person in the country and then go home and explain to your wife and children how mommy and daddy will no longer be married because, um, Gay.
And then sit down.
