from the culture wars

David Gibbs III, a lawyer who in 2005 fought to keep brain-damaged Terri Schiavo on life support, told rally participants gay marriage would “open the door to unusual marriage in North Carolina. “Why not polygamy, or three or four spouses?” Gibbs asked. “Maybe people will want to marry their pets or robots.

Used to, we only had to worry about donkeys.

    Well, there’s a nice little trip down memory lane.

    I’m still pondering unusual marriage in North Carolina….

    the origin of the donkey meme. it took me forever to find it.

    Yep, that was it. I remember it well.

    I want to marry a robot. Perhaps Wall-E. No, The Iron Giant, definitely.

    Gay robot marriage. That moron’s head would explode.

    Gay donkey robot polygamy is where I draw the line.

    Also, what if people want to marry themselves? Or if robots want to marry themselves three or four times? Or what if we’re all just characters in some gay robot’s dream wedding?

    What if a can of chili wants to marry a gay ceramic mushroom? Mr. Gibbs is not even scratching the surface of what legal gay marriage could do to North Carolina.

    Now, Now, not all of us from the northern state are bigoted, illogical hatemongers like this guy. Remember– we turned NC blue this last election :)
