Next: Marriage to dead cows?
A debate on the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage and civil unions is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at Northshore Presbyterian Church, 4048 N. Bartlett Ave., sponsored by Grassroots Northshore.
Rick Esenberg and Pastor Reed Heckmann will argue the pro-amendment case, with Attorney Lester Pines and Rev. Drew Kennedy will be arguing against it.
I don't know anything about the two ministers, but the attorneys involved are certain to offer some reasoned arguments, unlike those made by Julaine Appling of the Family Research Institute of Wisconsin, who says that a defeat of the amendment will lead not just to same-sex marriage, but legalized polygamy and group-marriage.
"Right behind (the homosexuals) are standing the polygamists,"she said, according to the LaCrosse Tribune.
And right behind the polygamists, no doubt, are standing those who want to practice bestiality. And behind them, the necrophiliacs.
First thing you know, it will be legal for a Wisconsinite to marry a cow or a corpse. Or a dead cow.
I think you'll hear more lucid arguments Wednesday night.
