Anchor Hits Back At Cantor: ‘No One’s Asking You To Marry Another Man’ (VIDEO)
Talking Points Memo ^ | April 5, 2013 | Tom Kludt

Posted on 04/06/2013 12:22:53 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

CNBC host Joe Kernen took House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to task Friday over the Republican Party's opposition to same-sex marriage.

In a rare discussion of social issues on the financial news program "Squawkbox," Kernen argued that the GOP has squandered its appeal with fiscally conservative voters by virtue of its opposition to gay nuptials. Cantor said some people, himself included, have legitimate religious objections to same-sex marriage.

“There are those of us who have personal religious convictions about the issue," Cantor said. "And I think that we as a country need to respect people about their opinion, not matter which side you come down on. I think that's what's really been lacking in all of this debate."

Cantor suggested that the the party's position wasn't "being received in the proper way," but Kernen asserted that "if we really are free, then everybody should be free."(continued)

Is his sister still drunk?

A good Catholic lecturing a GOPe Jew (who speaks like me)on the virtues of male fecal hole attraction as grounds for marriage

Princeless but sad

Poor Cantor...can’t win for losing

So, in the name of ‘freedom’ maybe a man should be able to have more then one wife.

Cantor avoids the questions and troublingly does not speak out against same sex marriage.

To wit, Cantor speaks to Kernen’s inability to distinguish the vulva from the anus.

then let me mary your young daughter kernan. let’me marry her even if she doesn’t want to. i should be free to use people whether they want me to or not. maybe she wants to marry me but doesn’t know it yet.

let’me marry your wife kernan. doesn’t matter if she’s already married, it’s what i want, and maybe even better if she does too. i’m not asking to marry you, just your wife. who are you to block my freedom?

let me destroy your property kernan. i should be free to follow my desires. whether or not you want me too. i’m not telling you you have to join in and destroy your stuff with me.

let’s let people marry their toasters. let’s let them marry their animals. could be great tax breaks there. maybe farmers could claim they’ve married all their milk cows. big tax break there. but you don’t care about that as much as the farmer’s freedom to marry who he wants. marriage really means nothing if you can marry anyone and everyone.

freaking idiot attempting to come across as smart.

i don’t have slaves’either but that doesn’t stop me from being against slavery.

i don’t have a uterus but that doesn’t relieve me of the obligation to stand up for what i believe is morally right.

whether you would do something or not is immaterial. one always has a duty to stand up for what they believe is morally right. we are all moral agents with a conscience and every right to promote and encourae what we believe to be true and correct.

the other side never stops but somehow they say we must.

if kernan is hetero then he shouldn’t be able to voice his “pro” opinion either, since he wouldn’t be marrying another guy either.

True. Until republicans forcefully and unapologetically repudiate this scourge, they will lose. People are waiting for courage, but have yet to see it.

If your going to lose, go down swinging. We should be talking about what homosexual sex is all about, in frank language, just in case anyone is unclear on the matter.

“Well Joe, many Americans are against men engaging in filthy, fecal, anal intercourse, and we certainly don’t want to validate that abberant, risky, dirty, unhealthy, socially damaging behavior with the title of marriage.”

Can’t agree with you more. I once told a pro-gay old lady at church that the back passage was for pooping out of not putting things into. She said I was being digusting. My answer “What’s more disgusting me saying it or them doing it?” Must have been me saying it as that was the end of the conversation.

There you go again, Secret Agent Man: advocating moral behavior in post-constitutional, post-moral America. Santa Claus and his special little elf buddies are not going to be amused!

In full seriousness: leftist extremists feel insulted by the very idea of moral rightness. As far as they're concerned, morality is a very old-fashioned, unscientific concept, and anyway, only the state can make highest level decisions.

Joe Kernen has always been a jerk. He is a Prima Donna who is always trying badly to be a comedian and often rudely interrupts his guests with irrelevent statements just so he can be the center of attention. I am not surprised that this shallow personality has jumped on the sodomite bandwagon

Democrats are not interested in a man having more than one wife.

They want you to BE a wife and be a mistress to a bungholer.

They may keep a few men around just to supply sperm to their turkey basters.

Yep. By liberal logic, if you have a gay third cousin, all intellectual arguments against gay marriage are rendered invalid.

Don’t forget to throw in there that the AIDS virus is spread mostly through homosexual intercourse and sharing drug needles. So we are truly FOR the people, we don’t want to encourage something that most commonly leads to a horrific death sentence!

"Well Joe, marriage is conjugal. It is based on the conjugal, procreative act. Conjugal marriage by its very nature leads to the conception of children and supports norms of constancy and monogamy that protect and nuture those children and those spouses."

"Conjugal marriage leads to the formation of something we like to call the family, and families are in turn the building block of a healthy society"

"On the other hand: gay sex is by its very definition non-conjugal. It doesn't lead to the conception of children, nor does it support norms of constancy and monogamy. Nor does it lead to the creation of families."

"In fact we see that gay sex - certainly among homosexual men - leads to norms of promiscuity, high rates of anal cancer and heavy use of dangerous substances such as amyl nitrite to reduce the pain of anal penetration".

"We should therefore promote conjugal marriage - which is of enormous value to society - by refusing to equate it with things that are not conjugal marriage."

"And in a society that strongly controls cigarette smoking because of the attendant health risks and burden on the health industry: we should consider legislation to crack down on male homosexual sex. Perhaps the Surgeon General should issue a warning about the dangers of anal intercourse?"

The Lame stream are not mentioning it but the muzzie population is playing close attention to the multiple wives question as soon as the definition is changed. A lot of sisters and aunt will disappear and be added to the welfare roles as Wives

It's impossible for a man to marry another man. That's not what the word "marriage" means. Marriage is, and always has in civilized societies, meant one man and one woman.

Limbaugh was right last week when he said we lost the debate as soon as we started qualifying the word "marriage" with "traditional", "heterosexual", etc. The word "marriage", in and of itself, implies "traditional", "heterosexual", and "opposite sex". There's no need to qualify it, because it means what it means...anything other than one man and one woman is not marriage.

Words mean things. The English language is the rule book of Western civilization, and to let the CommieLib sodomites tinker with it, screw with it, change meanings ala the Newspeak dictionary, means we've lost our civilization.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

As though true conservatives, who are pro-marriage and anti-abortion are not fiscal conservatives?

Libertarianism is a tool of the left and the fig leaf of the rinos.

Eveybody is free. Any man can marry any woman without any Problem. That is freedom. What is being asked for is perversion. Those are the facts. To do otherwise is to distort what everybody has always considered marriage to be. That is to pervert what has always been understood! To PERVERT what has always been understood is wrong. Let them consider doing something else!
