Iowa’s Rep. Steve King, one of the most LOLiest of all House members, was certainly the main draw at NOM and FRC’s bus tour this week, encouraging voters to oust the State Supreme Court justices who ruled to legalize same-sex marriage. Using his name, organizers got a whole 20 people to show up in Cedar Rapids! (To be fair, another 20 showed up to protest them, and that was after some 150 people rallied at the court house in support of the justices.) But that wasn’t where King relayed his most impressive remarks.
Those were reserved for the Iowa Independent. King, who used his tenure in the Iowa State Senate to author a Defense of Marriage Act, told the newspaper fun things like,
I think that if we can’t defend marriage, that it becomes very hard to defend life. Marriage is the crucible by which we pour all of our values and pass them on to our children, and that is how the culture is renewed each time. So, if we lose marriage — for instance, if our children are raised in warehouses, so to speak. There have been civilizations that have tried to do that. The Spartans did that. They took the children away and taught them to be warriors. It’s a good way to defend a country, but not much of a way to run a civilization.
So, I’m afraid if that happened — if we lose the marriage, we lose the home, we lose the nuclear family then we can’t teach our values. We won’t be able to teach our faith. We won’t be able to teach life. We won’t be able to teach our Constitutional values either. That’s why I’m afraid it’s going to be very, very difficult to defend life.
And there’s your friendly reminder from Rep. King, whom voters actually elected to office, that homosexuals want to steal your children and raise them for their resistance army.
