this man is clearly an idiot

Ladies and gentlemen, a poster child for Republicans: “Joe” the “Plumber”:

In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?

At a state level, it’s up to them. I don’t want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it’s wrong. People don’t understand the dictionary—it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.

Ugh – God and bigotry using God to justify bigotry.

    Bigotry, yes. From a guy whose high education is at the Home Depot. But please leave God out of the equation. If not, it certainly exposes yours.

  2. Hmm, apologies if it was taken that way, but thanks for pointing it out. What I meant by my last comment was “Ugh – he’s using God to justify bigotry.” If he was just a bigot, that’s unpleasant for sure, but to use Christianity to justify this worldview, that’s polluting Christianity.

    Andrew, thank you for taking time to clarify.
