Etheridge on the show even attacked Elizabeth Hassleback because she gave a concrete example of what happens when you call gay unions marriage. She gave the example of a European country where a priest was tried in court for saying something defending heterosexual marriage. Etheridge blasted Elizabeth for using this example.
It seems similar to the pro-life debate, where these pro-gay-marriage people don’t really have any arguments about why gay marriage is actually good, they just keep saying “rights rights rights”, that’s it. And then people watching don’t bother to think about it much.
It’s really annoying.
I was watching larry king live, but joy behar was there instead of larry king. anyway, they had on alec baldwin, and they were talking about divorce, and alec said the courts favour women in these cases, and it’s bad for children, because they need a father and girls without fathers are more likely to do risky sexual stuff and drugs and other bad things.
Then Joy was like, “wait a second, but you’re not talking about gay marriage right?? right?? I mean, you can’t say gay marriage is bad.” She offered no reason why it would be different.
Of course Alec was like, “oh no, of course not, I’m not saying that’s bad. I mean no, of course not. that’s a different issue all together”
They just want to sweep all of this under the rug!
