Senator Sam Brownback rivals Michael Savage’s savage stupidity this weekend when he spoke at the National Catholic Men’s Conference. The Republican presidential candidate claims true politicians rule with their faith, defended his pro-life stance, and, yes, insisted gays should remain second-class citizens.
Brownback also talked about keeping marriage between a man and a woman, saying nations that have allowed same-sex marriages were engaging in bad social experiments, with bad results.
He also encouraged married couples to stay together, saying unspecified studies have shown that if couples weather hard times for five years, their marriages tend to last. After five years, “people are happier than those who have had a divorce,” Brownback said.
Wasn’t democracy at one point a social experiment? Also, we’d like to hear about these so-called “bad results”? Are their droughts? Have cities been overrun by locusts? Do demons spring up from hell and devour children? Or is he just trying to scare people straight to the voting booth.
