So Senator Cory Bernadi has been dumped for arguing that same sex marriage could lead to bestiality.
Bolta has endorsed this dumping.
But Bolta himself argued that same-sex marriage was wrong because it was the start of a slippery slope.
Well, you can’t have it both ways, Andrew.
Arguing that the so-called slippery slope could (would?) lead to polygamy – as an example – and then condemning Bernadi for taking that argument to another logical step makes no sense at all.
It sounds weak.
So the narrative goes: polygamy is bad a) if you’re a Righty, it’s because Muslims do it and b) if you’re a Lefty, it’s because Mormons used to do it before it was outlawed and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is Mormon and c) this is the result of ridiculous religious ideology, and atheism is the go… but we’ll just attack right wing Christians for now whilst we establish our power base.
Ho hum, a quick Google image search (sans filters) might tell you that all kinds of people love their pets a bit too much.
All in all, Bernadi makes a lot of sense with his usual writings, although not with that quip. Thus, all in all, this should be the time to give him a break, not break his neck at the gallows!
Oh, and never mind that same sex marriage is just that: same-sex marriage, give or take a hyphen.
Why we’re arguing about this crap in the first place is another question.
PS This kind of stuff bugs the thorax out of me. The Liberals did it with the anti-AGW bloke, Dennis Jensen, as well… to the point of dis-endorsing him.
Plant five billion bucks worth of trees if you like, Tony – after all, even loggers like trees – but don’t
piss on me and tell me it’s raining claim that it’s a better solution to the non-solution to save the planet (which doesn’t need saving anyway).
That’s just “crap”..
