ME Equality Opponent Erick Bennett: Same-Sex Marriage Leads To Communism

Eleven other countries have passed gay marriage: Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, South Africa and Sweden.

Passing gay marriage is not the only thing they have in common: They are also ranked the most socialist countries on earth. So what does socialism have to do with same-sex marriage?

To understand that we need to know what socialism is.

Socialism is a political and economic theory that believes that government should control everything. It is a stage between overthrowing capitalism and creating a communist government.

Same-sex marriage is a cover so politicians can play political football in the attempt to score votes and grow government.”

—A truly desperate-sounding Erick Bennett of the anti-gay Maine Equal Rights Center, in an op-ed in the Bangor Daily News.
