This isn’t really news (source interview is from 2012; article is from April 6), so I didn’t post it there. I’ve noticed this post making the viral rounds recently on conservative/religious blogs, websites, and social media:
“Homosexual Activist Admits True Purpose of Battle is to Destroy Marriage”:
The text of the quote:
As a person who sources everything and cares deeply about honesty in argument on both sides (I have seen way too many false/misleading quotes put out by both sides), I was suspicious because the article gives no attribution other than “on a radio interview”. So, I did some digging and I found it. None of the many hits I found in Google actually give the attribution to the source interview, so I thought I would provide it here in case anyone else is wondering.
It’s from an Australian radio show called Life Matters from June 11, 2012. Here’s the link to it. The quote in question begins around the 6:30 mark. The url is:
The quoting in the article is accurate.
Of course, one person doesn’t speak for a movement. Then again, the entire crowd seemed to cheer and clap at “It’s a no brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.”
Regardless, since this seems to be pretty viral right now and I’ve seen it quoted in other threads on CA, I wanted to let everyone know it is an accurate quote.
