Snakes On A … Slippery Slope Gay Marriage Debate

Wall Street Journal opinion editor Dan Henninger went on Fox News this week to do, well, what else than spew illogical nonsense about gay marriage. Since we dont willingly tune into hate speech unless we’re assessing Shepard Smith‘s glow, it took Stephen Colbert to bring our attention to it. Henninger argues, based on a woman in India marrying a snake, that when it comes to gay marriage, there’s no guaranteeing letting same-sex couples wed won’t result in Americans marrying their pets.

This is a footnote to our gay marriage discussion: A woman in India last week married a snake. I would like to ask the proponents of gay marriage–which violates, after all, traditions going back through all of human history–to now absolutely, positively guarantee that the next movement is not going to be allowing people to marry their pet horse, dog or cat. And you know What? Given the “anything goes” culture we live in, I don’t think they can deliver that guarantee.
