Douchebag of the Day: Trent Franks, Straights Deserve “Special” Rights Because Gay Marriage Threatens Nation


As boring as this rehtoric gets, I still love seeing a good old crack pot making himself look bat shit crazy. Franks was on Tony full of baloney Perkins radio show talking about what else? the gays. Tony is obsessed with everything gay, marriage, gays in the military, gay gay gay gay gay. It think Tony is secretly a mo himself and maybe getting it up the ass by his wife’s strap on or fisted. I don’t know what closet cases are into today.

Anyway back to Franks, here is what he said to Perkins:

We understand that when we’re granting the rights of marriage, that that’s a special right Tony, that’s something we have suggested is clearly the best possible way to see children raised through the best possible environment to launch the next generation, we believe that with all of our hearts as a society, I think most people understand that. So we’ve set aside this special area of the law that says we’re going to respect traditional marriage of a man and a woman because that is the launching pad of the next generation. Let’s face it; we have made a special exception in the law that gives special consideration and recognition to that.

And when people would come along and blur that distinction and say ‘well that should apply in every way’ it not only is a complete undermining of the principles of family and marriage and the hope of future generations but it completely begins to see our society break down to the extent that that foundational unit of the family that is the hope of survival of this country is diminished to the extent that it literally is a threat to the nation’s survival in the long run.

    These heteros bleating about how marriage is for kids, and heteros only, are so clueless — they seem to truly believe that there’s this pent of millions of men who are ready to turn gay the minute anything nice is said about us. Why they seem incapable of understanding that only we few are gay, and none of the rest, I don’t know. It’s sort of like saying “if red heads were allowed to get married, the nation will fall.” They seem to be very insecure people.
