The religious right’s bigoted message on marriage
You have to love the zealots over that the religious right — sometimes the obliviousness they display is truly stunning.
A case in point: The most recent edition of the North Carolina Family Policy Council’s “Family North Carolina” magazine which includes the following consecutive stories:
- “A Threat to Liberty: Same-Sex ’Marriage,” Domestic Partnerships and Civil Unions” and
- “Marriage and Economic Well-Being: The economy of the Family Rises and Falls with Marriage.”
Got that? Right after they get done telling you how only certain kinds of people should be allowed to marry, they follow it up with an article telling you how marriage is the key to a decent worldly existence!
Come to think of it, however, maybe it isn’t obliviousness. Maybe these folks are just being straightforward with their bigotry. Here’s a suggested combined title for the two articles when they do a reprint:
“Marriage: the key to a happy life…for the people we think are entitled to lead one.”
