Quote# 36024

By granting this homosexual couple a divorce, Judge Neary has pretended their marriage was valid in the State of Iowa. Unless I'm mistaken, it was in Vermont, not Iowa, that Howard "the Coward" Dean slyly signed midnight legislation making same sex unions legal. Unicorns, leprechauns, gay marriages in Iowa-- these are all things you will never find because they just don't exist. But perhaps Judge Neary would grant divorces to unicorns and leprechauns too.

And the bible says nothing about unicorns existing either does it?

this ass hat actually has a say in what happens to this country. sad.

He is just recognising a legal matter from another state. It's as if I can't get benefits from my marriage to my Cypriot-Irish hubby in Iowa because we married in California.

Even sadder, this bilge is on the record, on the official House website.

More fundie goodness from Rep. King:

"The radical Islamists, the al-Qaida ... would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror." (and this is what he thinks an Obama presidency would be like!)

"I do not support allowing special legal rights based on sexual orientation. I believe the traditional American family, together with conservative values, forms the bedrock of our free society."
(There he goes with the neocon "special rights" line. Yet he also says:)
"There is no civil right for marriage. There is a license for marriage, and a license is by definition a permit to do something which is otherwise illegal."

Sorry dude but your analogy falls apart because laws don't control the fabric of existance. Unicorns would still not exist even if they were recognized within Iowa legislature.

Shit. I was hoping for a gay-divorce-court TV show.

Just goes to show, they're not elected for their wisdom.

Malfist wins.

And this guy is a U.S. representative? I weep for my country.

3/9/2008 6:09:45 PM


You really have no idea about the law, do you? Typical fundie Republican...

This subhuman is a Congressman! The end is near!

Article IV, Section 1 of the United States Constitution say you're an Idiot.

Remind me to stay the hell out of Iowa. I won't risk that kind of sheer stupidity to not be contagious! And it must be, considering this dimwit was elected.

It's quite likely there could be same-sex marriages in Iowa. So suck it.

And, yeah, Howard Dean is so sneaky and totally responsible for gay unions in Vermont. 9_9

there is a license for marriage, and a license is by definition a permit to do something which is otherwise illegal.

Damn, I'm fed up with this idiotic, circular line of reasoning. "It's bad because it's illegal, and it should be illegal because it's bad!"

3/9/2008 8:13:01 PM


Wow, I'm so lucky! I think I didn't have any ill efects after the first -and hopefully last, because, gods, your food sucks- visit to the USA. I could have gotten something grave like terminal stupidity or something.

Septic Sceptic

Yes Steve, same sex unions have been legal in Vermont since 2000. Of course, the very second that this horrendous divergence from God's divine law was put forward, all social and moral order broke down, the cities rang with the screams of children being sacrificed to Satan, and blood rained from the skies.

Erm, actually, hang on a second. It seems absolutely nothing changed. The gays were allowed to get paired up, and there was no upheaval in the fabric of society.


However, the figure do not show if Nazis rode dinosaurs in the streets at any point after 2000.

The fundy is strong in this one.

Old Viking

Based on the statement, I would have guessed politician. I would also have guessed Republican.

3/9/2008 10:04:22 PM


Apparently Rep. King hasn't heard that gay marriage is legal in Massachusetts.

3/9/2008 10:56:17 PM


Who cares what about a federal representative has to say about state issues such as marriage that are in no way the business of the federal government? Frickin federal government making up laws regulating processes it has no business controlling...

3/9/2008 11:10:47 PM


Gays are real. That's the difference, dumb fuck. We must consider the rights of homosexual citizens because, you know, they exist and are citizens. Your unicorns, leprechauns and this "God" fellow? Not real. No rights for them.

Job 39:
39:9 Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

39:10 Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

Been on any unicorn safaris in Israel lately?

I thought these people were against gay marriage, but now they're complaining that gay people are allowed to divorce?

3/10/2008 1:32:00 AM


As someone living in the state that first decided to make gays as second class citizens in their constitution, I can't seem to recall any similar movements to do the same to unicorns and leprechauns.

Apparently fundies do indeed believe that gay marriages exist. Why pass laws to outlaw something that doesn't exist?
