Wait, What? Republican Lawmaker Says He Doesn’t Support Gay Marriage Because He Doesn’t Want To Marry A Man
“I’m not gay and I make the laws. So you shouldn’t be gay either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Republican Lawmaker Says Opposes Gay Marriage Because He’s Not Gay
GOP Goon Saxy Chambliss has joined in with the Republican meat head motor-mouth bandwagon that manages to spew ridiculousness at every turn. Today’s topic? Gay marriage.
via Think Progress
Since Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) announced his support for marriage equality last week, other Republican lawmakers have been asked to clarify their own positions on same-sex marriage.
Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), for example, both explained that they would still oppose marriage equality even if they had children who came out as gay. But Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) offered Politico a different explanation:
Chambliss: I’m not gay. So I’m not going to marry one.
Though context is lacking, his conflation of the adjective “gay” and noun “one” is offensive on its face (i.e. he’s not going to marry “a gay.”) But Chambliss’s comment reflects a common sentiment among Republicans who oppose policies that don’t apply to them — particularly any with specific protections for minorities.
So, he’s basically not in favor of marriage equality because the people who are looking to get married are not “like him.” Oh.
