Anti-gay group American Family Association (AFA) yesterday took out a full-page ad in the Washington Post to remind the Supreme Court that God is solely responsible for the creation, management and administration of marriage, reports right wing Christian news website OneNewsNow.
The AFA admonishes the highest court of the law in the United States to "remember whose idea [marriage] was in the first place.”
AFA president Tim Wildmon (right) - who has something of an obsession with military men taking showers - said:
"First of all, the U.S. Constitution does not address marriage; so it's left to the states to decide definitions for marriage – and the states have spoken.
“[Marriage has] forever been one man/one woman and it forever will be one man/one woman – according to nature, according to God, according to the Bible, and according to most religious traditions.”
The ad itself is pure right-wing scaremongering at its best, suggesting that marriage equality will be harmful to children and could bring on Armageddon:
“Will you bend what God designed merely to suit the desires of man, knowing that you do so at the expense of children, perhaps even civilization itself?
“[Supporters of same-sex marriage] would say by such a decision that mothers and fathers together are no longer relevant in the lives of children, and that religious expression about the sanctity and purpose of marriage would now become illicit.”
