This Is Not a ‘Point’

Via Cubik’s Rube comes this choice morsel:

One other point should be made. In spite of all the rioting and all the whining in the wake of Proposition 8, only a few thousand same-sex marriages have taken place in Massachusetts, Connecticut or even here in California, where it was permitted for a while. And most of those marriages involved lesbians. Yet the way their male counterparts have been carrying on, you’d have thought the gay bars had all been padlocked. (Source)
This is not a ‘point’, Bert Prelutsky. It is, in the words of cubiksrube, ‘fucktardery’. If you’re going to argue for morally bankrupt principles, at least do it without sounding like a complete moron. (Oh, and the rest of the article attempts to link atheism and homosexuality. Apparently, Prelutsky, has never encountered any of the many, many Christian homosexuals, who do in fact exist. It’s true!)

    Yeah, I still really don’t know what his point is in that paragraph. “Hey, there’s only a few thousand of them actually bothering to do it anyway, so why are we even letting them?” Because, y’know, unless the number of people exercising a particular right is well into six figures, you might as well outlaw it and legally enforce its prohibition.

    People have actually advanced that argument – ‘Why should we redefine marriage for a tiny minority of the population?’ Firstly, that’s not the point. And secondly, that ‘tiny minority’ still consists of thousands upon thousands of people.
