Dov Hikind’s Reason For Opposing Marriage Equality: Lady Gaga

Before the New York state Assembly passed the marriage equality bill last night, Brooklyn Democrat Dov Hikind displayed a picture of Lady Gaga and explained that passing a marriage equality bill would have serious consequences: “We’ll all be forced to wear telephones on our heads.”

OK, so he didn’t actually say that. What he said was, “And one of the things I love, I gotta tell you. I came close to maybe changing my point of view when I started looking at all the celebrities who were telling New Yorkers what the moral, what the right thing was. And none other came close Lady Gaga. When Lady Gaga got involved and told us this, we should support gay marriage, y’know I said Lady Gaga. You know she is my example of how I should lead my life and how I should behave. Came close, but I didn’t quite do it.”

Ah yes… the classic Lady Gaga argument against same-sex marriage. Opponents have been using that against us for… centuries.

Wha-wha-what did you say, Dov? You’re breaking up on me.
