It didn't take long for conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh to weigh in on Pew's recent study showing that the number of identifying Christian's has steadily declined over the last decade, with the radio host blaming, you guessed it, gay marriage.

Limbaugh shared his reasoning on his radio show on Tuesday, specifically citing churches that perform same-sex weddings and ordained gay clergy are the reason for the diaspora:

"They have left their churches because of social issues and the evolution of their churches to social areas they didn't want to go and don't feel comfortable being in. If you look at the evangelical churches, they haven’t lost anything. Their membership is holding pretty steady. Where the message has remained, where the mission has remained the same, where the members of the church don’t think any corruption is taking place. They're still hanging in there.

Rush Limbaugh Defends Indiana's Anti-Gay Law Because You Might Marry Your Dolphin: LISTEN


Good old Rush Limbaugh. Not content with claiming that same-sex marriage will lead to incest, he's now got a bee in his bonnet because you might want to marry your dolphin or something.

Addressing the backlash to Indiana's 'right to discriminate' law on the March 31st edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show, he argues that the ban is "not about honoring...discrimination against homosexuality, it's about people whose religious beliefs prohibit them from engaging in activity which lends credence in support of gay marriage."

Nothing out of the ordinary so far. However, Limbaugh goes on to claim that a "UK woman who wanted to marry her dog...I think..and remember that? She married a dolphin..ok, whatever. She wanted to marry an animal that was not a man..."

In recent days, NIKE, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, NASCAR, Gap and many other individuals and organizations have spoken out against Indiana's anti-gay law.

Rush Limbaugh Blames Gay Marriage For Incest: AUDIO

Rush Limbaugh

Gays can legally marry in most states, and this is why an anonymous father and daughter in New York are planning to get married. Or so goes the logic of sentient bloviating mass that names itself Rush Limbaugh:

Do you remember how everyone laughed when we warned you people about this very thing happening once society started to redefine marriage and redefine what makes up a legitimate relationship?

Nevermind the fact that no state government, much less the federal government, will recognize this as a legitimate, legal marriage. Or that the "inbred redneck" is a pernicious stereotype about the South that has existed for generations. Or that the practice of incest predates the gay rights movement. Or that it was once just accepted as de rigueur amongst the wealthy. Or that it even appears in the Bible. Repeatedly. But no, gay marriage was what opened the floodgates and were gays not allowed to marry then we wouldn't be dealing with fathers marrying daughters.

Rush Limbaugh Blames Democrats 'All Out Assault' on Marriage and Religion As the Cause of 'National Angst' - AUDIO


On Rush Limbaugh's radio program today, the right-wing blowhard called for an "entire shift in national attitude" and blamed the Democratic Party's 'all out assault' on marriage, religion, science, and education as the root cause of our nation's "angst."

Said Limbaugh:

Standards have deteriorated, morality is no longer allowed to be defined or used. Nobody is allowed to pass judgement on what's obviously right or wrong. There's no foundation, there aren't any guardrails's no wonder people who are rooted in the great traditions and institutions of this country may think they are crumbling, because they're routinely assaulted - they, the people, and the institutions. 

Limbaugh, for those still counting, is currently on his fourth marriage. He's also previously asserted that "if you believe in God, you can't believe in manmade global warming."

Rush Limbaugh Schooled on the Word 'Tranny': VIDEO


Last week, after Laverne Cox appeared on the cover of TIME magazine, Rush Limbaugh took a call from a transgender listener named Tina who spoke to him about the word "tranny" and why people find it offensive.

Limbaugh told the caller "I've been for trannies for a long time."

Said the caller: "I did hear you using that term. And a lot of us do find that to be rather offensive because of the way that its been historically used."

Limbaugh then explained that he had heard Alec Baldwin use the term:

“He has made a lot of homophobic comments, and he wrote this big apologia. And he used the term tranny as though it were hip, and an inside baseball term that made him cool with the transgender [community].”

The caller explained to Limbaugh that the word is often used derisively, to which Limbaugh replied, "Well how do people know you're a tranny?"

The conversation then turned more personal, with Limbaugh questioning the caller about the difficulties she has finding a romantic partner, and asking questions about how trans women might "trick" men, and how sexual suspicion can be a difficulty.

Said the caller: "Sometimes people have oral sex or anal sex in the dark."

To which Limbaugh replied: "Oh, that’s right! I didn’t even think of that! Oh, you’re right. Because everybody — yeah. Aw, gee."

Rush Limbaugh: Jan Brewer is Being 'Bullied' into Vetoing Arizona Anti-Gay Bill — AUDIO

Rush Limbaugh says Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is being bullied into signing SB 1062, the bill that would allow businesses to discriminate against gays based on religious beliefs, Politico reports:

Limbaugh“Religious beliefs can’t be used to stop anything the left wants to impose, unless they’re Muslim religious beliefs and then we have to honor those. But any other religious beliefs are not permitted,” Limbaugh said. “The left will not allow them. Now, the current thinking is that Gov. Brewer will probably veto the bill, which, you might think on the face of it will make her a hero with the news media and the rest of the left.”

Sure, it might make her a hero, he said — “for five minutes.” And then she’ll go back to being a “near criminal conservative Republican,” Limbaugh continued, because “their reaction will be, what took her so long? Why did she even consider not vetoing this?”

“She’s being bullied by the homosexual lobby in Arizona and elsewhere,” he said. “She’s being bullied by the nationwide drive-by media, she’s being bullied by certain elements of corporate America in order to advance the gay agenda. I guess in that circumstance bullying is admirable. In fact, this kind of bullying is honorable.”
