...there are plenty of secular reasons to reject homosexual marriage as well. I have written three books on this already,
Bill says, on the day in which the traditionally staunchly-Catholic Ireland voted overwhelmingly in favour of legalising same-sex marriage.
Predicting yet another victory for love, tolerance, equality and common humanity over the forces of hate, superstition and ignorance, Bill took to his blog to vent. I mean, how is this happening to him? Country after country in the west is passing equal marriage laws, and the Irish people have asked for equality, and yet Bill has written three anti-gay books!
Why is nobody paying any attention to him? Why is nobody buying his books? Instead, it's another sleepless night as Bill's preferred lifestyle of bullying and bigotry is consigned to history in yet another country.
Even if you do not have a religious bone in your body, there are plenty of arguments to be made from the secular point of view against sodomy and sodomite marriage,
says Bill Muehlenberg, degrading and debasing every gay person and every gay relationship in the world by reducing it to the act of anal sex. Presumably then, he's OK with lesbians getting married? And gay couples who don't practice anal sex? And presumably he wants to break up the straight marriages where anal sex is practised by consenting partners (or does he really think anal sex is just a gay thing?? He needs to get out more...)?
This just makes me livid.
We know, sweetie. Just take a chill pill and accept that you've lost the argument, and that most people in the west now recognise bigotry and discrimination against gay people as socially unacceptable. Meanwhile, we'll laugh at your increasing isolation and shrill hysteria because nobody's listening to you and your calls for bigotry and homophobia.
Bill goes on to denounce loving gay couples as "sham mockery of biblical marriage" - but guess what, Bill? The religious don't own marriage. Marriage is a civil contract, and for most people, religion doesn't come into it. Not everybody shares your views, in fact, you are in an increasingly small minority.
So deal with it instead of having tantrums because you've lost the argument and people see you for the hate-monger you are.
