GOP Leader: Gay Marriage Bad For Small Biz and More!

So as if it wasn't bad enough that the majority of Christian churches feel the need to control the constitutional rights of lgbt folks who would like to marry, the GOP has recently turned it into an economic issue.

There cannot be anything more insidious than this.

But watch Keith Olbermann tear the crap out of this argument:

Let me just say that as a single person, I have not ONCE been employed by a small business that insured even me. Not once. And if insuring families is the issue, then I would think the answer would be either 1) not to hire married hets because obviously, they suck up the most money, or 2) don't hire anyone married at all, or 3) don't hire anyone with kids, married or not, or....

You see where this goes.

And while we're at it, let's see what NOM has been up to after their last inane "Gathering Storm" add against lgbt marriage.

Now, they seem to be thinking that same gender marriage shouldn't be acceptable because it confuses children. Like purple dinosaurs don't? Like divorce doesn't? Like hunger and poverty don't?

What a pile of absolute crap.

Now, this child, Ethan, who is a Colorado sixth grader, organized an equal marriage rights rally might be the one to debate Michael Steele. Kudos to Ethan... baby, you are the future!
