All Election, All Day – Part VI

This is the “thought” process of the man who championed Virginia’s bigot amendment:

The debate was over, and the stately atrium at the University of Virginia School of Law was nearly empty. But Del. Robert G. Marshall, a Prince William County Republican who wryly refers to himself as Virginia’s “chief homophobe,” was just warming up to his next showdown over same-sex marriage.

“There is a natural order of things, a natural order where gay marriage is an impossibility,” he said, books tucked under his arm and waving a hand for emphasis, like the disheveled college professor he often resembles. “For example, a woman’s arm is constructed at a certain angle so that she can adequately cradle a baby. This is the way we’re created. There are just certain things that nature intended.”

At what point did intelligence and logic become offensive liabilities to public service?
