"Gay Marriage is like letting a 3 year old drive a car"

You know you're losing the way when you have to resort to idiotic analogies like this. That bit of ridiculousness was uttered by Vicky Hartzler, described by Mother Jones magazine as the most anti-gay congressperson. She was elected in the Tea Party tidal wave in 2010 I wrote about her previously for as the #1 member of Congress in receiving Federal agricultural subsidies and the hypocrisy of her campaign here.

Why not allow an uncle to marry his niece? Why not allow a 50-year-old man to marry a 12-year-old girl if they love each other and they’re committed?

So, pretty soon, if you don’t set parameters, you don’t have any parameters at all, the license means nothing — the marriage means nothing. It’s their right to marry whoever they want, but we’re saying marriage is between a man and a woman. So, there’s a difference there. But it’s not a right in the Constitution as far as that goes either. It’s not a right of anybody — of a 3-year-old to be able to drive a car.

Jerry Lee Lewis married his 13 year old niece in 1958 when gay marriage wasn't eactly an issue so what your point Vicky?

Rick Santorum raved on about marrying box turtles if we let gays marry. Idiocy knows no bounds.
