In Japan a man has collected 1000 signatures to petition the government to allow marriage between humans and cartoon characters.
Author Edward Feser writes about it at this blog: whatswrongwiththeworld.net/2008/11/almost_as_stupid_as_samesex_ma.html
Of course, I’m not trying to insinuate that “same-sex marriage” is as stupid as this – because in fact, it’s far more stupid. Consider: Who’s the bigger fool, the man who thinks two imaginary apples added to two real ones make four real apples, or the man who thinks two real apples and two further real ones make five apples? I’d say the latter – the former may be delusional, but at least he can add.
