Hysterical Hyperbolic Hystrionics

"Government doesn't endow people with the ability to procreate the species. The Creator takes care of that. Like all unalienable rights, those associated with the natural family exist in consequence of this endowment. A couple that cannot, by nature, procreate has no claim to those rights. Nor can government grant them a semblance of it without impairing the claims of one or both of the parents biologically implicated in the physical conception of the child. The DOMA simply makes more explicit the government's obligation to secure the Creator-endowed unalienable rights of the natural family. This obligation precludes government from fabricating other rights that impair them. In this respect, granting homosexuals the right to marry is like granting plantation owners the right to own slaves."
Though I loath to sully my blog with this link.......WND

Seriously? So a man and woman who  by choice or by infertility cannot or will not procreate.....has no claim to unalienable rights? How about those who don't believe in your mythical creator? I won't even touch the idiocy of the slavery analogy.

Mr Sir...are a tool.


  1. When so many other logical arguments exist, and Keyes chooses these... puerile appeals to religiosity and The Creator... you know he's just playing the role of the Demagogue Darling, one he's enjoyed for a long time: SHOCK! a Black "Conservative"! SHOCK!

    With "conservative" meaning, "pandering to the basest emotional urges of hatred and division."

  2. Exactly. See Republicans have black friends...and sometimes even let them speak in their forums!

    Demagoguery has long been a strong suit of Mr Keyes.

  3. I see. So the first four years of my marriage, before we had children, were... what? Some sort of fringe benefit of the Divine Necessity Of Procreation?

    And my friend's father, who remarried after his wife's death, whose new wife is well past menopause? Are you telling me they had no right to marry? Should we, perhaps, require fertility checks for both applicants before handing out marriage licenses?

    Bah. The argument is so stupid it isn't even fun to poke hole in it.

  4. Yep...this quote of his spoke to me especially because of my wife and I's experience with infertility. The linking of rights to procreation is something I can't really wrap my little head around....

  5. Well, see that's the problem. You're trying to wrap your head around it, when the only sensible response is to look for something to wrap around Mr. Keyes' head. I'm thinking 9 iron, but I'm not a golfer myself. Still... I'm sure I could find something.

  6. I should know better by now....but I'm a glutton for mocking the stupid!
