Another Wackjob Thinks Gay Rights Equals Everyone Marrying Their Dog
How does someone like this even get on a news show? Well, it’s Fox News, so never mind. But how does someone like this become a doctor of psychiatry? Dr. Keith Ablow, the resident psychiatrist at Fox News, claimed this morning that legalized same sex marriage would lead to bestiality. Because that makes sense.
From Raw Story:
During a Fox & Friends “Normal or Nuts” segment, host Anna Kooiman asked Ablow if it was “normal” for California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) to sign a law replacing the words “husband” and “wife” with the word “spouse” in the state’s marriage definition.
“Get ready for the cards and letters,” Ablow quipped. “Nuts!”
He makes the totally weird jump a lot of super-conservatives who are against gay marriage make; assuming a legal union between two people who love each other will lead to everyone marrying everyone, and also deciding their dogs look pretty dateable. What the hell is wrong with this man?
“Here’s the thing, the state needs to get out of the marriage business because here’s what we can expect,” he continued. “There’s no way that the state of California can deny a marriage license to four spouses now, eight spouses.”
“Or, I would say, three human spouses and the canine they absolutely love because if love is the foundation of marriage, they can love their dog, too.”
I guess if I were to play Fuck, Marry, Kill – I would choose marrying my dog over marrying this idiot – but that’s hardly the point. The point is, there is no way this guy actually believes these inane words coming out of his mouth. He can’t. But he has a title and a “respectable” platform – and I wonder how many ignorant people are using his soundbite to project their intolerance to everyone around them? People like Ablow are not just really, really stupid. They’re dangerous.
Bravo, Fox News, for scraping the bottom of the barrel once again.
