Okay people, maybe if we all say it together, in one solitary voice, Newt and his ilk will finally, finally, get it. Are you ready? You can’t catch gay. (Gasp!) You aren’t going to wake up in the morning with a serious case of the gays. Gay won’t even rub off on you if you touch a homosexual. If gay marriage is legalized the Earth will not stop turning. We won’t all float off into space, and the sun will still come up on schedule. I promise. In fact, not one teeny, tiny thing will change for anyone who is not gay.
Here’s the image:
And yes, Newt, we are all aware you would love for the judiciary to be cut off at the knees, to only have one viewpoint-yours-. You didn’t really have to tweet it. The nerve of those judges running amok protecting the rights of the people! (Silly people, don’t you know rights are for corporations?) But then again, maybe somebody really important realized human beings constantly change, reaching out for a better world. Oh, I don’t know, someone like Thomas Jefferson perhaps (who certainly qualifies as an expert on constitutional law):
“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”
