Over the past few years, anti-gay crusaders and opposite marriage loyalists have unfavorably compared homosexuality to things like bestiality, termites, alcoholism, the iceberg that sunk the Titanic, killer snails, even ice cream. (This full list is frightening, and on some levels, hilarious.) And while comparisons to pedophilia are nothing new, the way this is phrased would be laughable if it weren’t so hurtful, deluded, and sad.
Appearing today on Bishop Harry Jackson’s “Grow With Hope” YouTube page (likely part of the upcoming Defense of Marriage Summit), televangelist James Robison makes the case that staying quiet about marriage equality “would be like stepping back when suddenly the public has decided to allow pedophiles to play in the public parks and there was nothing we could do about it because we refused to take a stand.” Yeah, same thing.
Really, where else is The Pedophile Ultimate Frisbee League gonna play?
