The Logic Of The New Orthodoxy On Same-Sex Marriage

  1. Opposing gay marriage makes one “anti-gay.”
  2. Barack Obama opposed gay marriage in 2008.
  3. Ergo, Barack Obama was “anti-gay” in 2008.
  4. You voted for him.
  5. Ergo, you’re anti-gay.

Always question the premise.

  1. You forgot the other assumption, it doesn’t matter what one thought yesterday. The past doesn’t matter. Conscription of the past only is o.k. if there is someone that is not liked. Live in the ever present now. Trajectories don’t matter, the past has past.

    Good grief, that made me feel disgusting even writing that. Cheers, R.S.C.!
