Watch Todd Akin Claim Marriage Equality Destroys Civilization: VIDEO

Akin2006

This was mentioned in passing earlier this month, but this video is worth another look. In 2006, long before he was known for fabricating something called "legitimate rape", zealot Republican Congressman Todd Akin of Missouri took to the House floor to decry same-sex love's destructive properties.

"Anybody who knows something about the human race knows that there is no civilization which has condoned homosexual marriage widely and openly that has long survived," he said at the time.

But if Akin is to be believed, and we're meant also to believe in "American exceptionalism," a characteristic the GOP regularly celebrates, wouldn't the States be the exception to this spurious rule? It's all very confusing.

Meanwhile, in other Akin news, President Obama poked some fun at the congressman during a fundraiser in New York City last night. "Recently some of you have been paying attention to the commentary about the senator from Missouri, Mr. Akin," said the president, before the continuing, "the interesting thing here is that this, this is an individual who sits on the House Committee on Science and Technology but somehow missed science class."

  2. I really don't think any civilization has condoned same sex marriage, so there goes that genius' logic.

  5. LOL I love it how because of his stupid commentaries (which he's been vehemently using to spread hatred) have now rendered him so massively unauthentic specially when it's getting closer to the crucial time.

  6. Canada ? Come on, we're trying to argue civilization won't be destroyed...

    But Seriously...

    Who knew we had such amazing powers !

    These remarks don't disturb me at all, compared to the fact that this man was on the House Committee on Science and Technology...

    Now, THAT scares the HELL out of me...

  8. It's not gay marriage that will destroy civilization here in Canada, it's Avril Lavigne and that Nickelback guy's marriage that will do it.

  10. 50 years ago: "If we let blacks marry whites, civilization will collapse!"

    Today: "If we let men marry men, civilization will collapse!"

    Still waiting on that "collapse" that interracial marriage was supposed to cause.

  11. Presumably someone explains why he is saying that. It is because he is a Dominionist.. believes completely in the 'Demographic Winter' which says that soon Whites will be in minority. So he demands all white men try to have babies with white women.. RAPE and GAY MEN included! In fact you know that in 31 states they now have laws on the books that a Rapist has parental rights and can get custody of child!.. YOU DIDN"T ? know that you should your legislators put them there. Here are links to peruse. First is David Badash's story on Akin's 'civilization' comment ..then he gets to where it was made.

  13. Which is it Todd? We can't redefine marriage because it has always been betwee a man and a woman since the beginning of time, or EVERY civilization that legalized gay marriage is no more?

  14. Everone should be blessed with enemies as utterly stupid as Todd Akin.

  15. 45 states, I think he means 32. And he is suppose to be talking about facts?

  16. The decision to replace the beloved design came after five years of research, which yielded six patented advances that enabled the CH 29-535 PS to surpass its predecessor.
