State Reps Brian Sims and Steve McCarter introduced a marriage equality bill yesterday and today Gov. gasbag illustrated why he’s so stupid: he compared same sex marriage with incest in an interview. We’ve known for three years what a moron this Governor is and he continues putting his foot in his mouth whenever he speaks but this is absolutely ridiculous. Comparing two adults who live one another, want to commit to each other for life and gain the same rights and benefits as straight couples is NOT the same as screwing your daughter or cousin.
Perhaps Corbett’s parents engaged in some familial incest resulting in an idiot offspring. There has to be some logical reason Gov. “Just Close Your Eyes” is so stupid and continues saying stupid things in public.
Sims responded by reminding voters this is why Corbett needs to be defeated in 2014. McCarter said:
“I condemn Gov. Corbett’s comments for their hatefulness and ignorance. The issue of marriage equality is not a joke, and the governor’s words only further demonstrate that he is out of touch with the majority of Pennsylvanians.”
Gubernatorial candidates Katie McGinty and Ed Pawlowski had these statements to say (respectively):
“Tom Corbett owes an apology to the people of Pennsylvania. He has a history of making demeaning and insulting remarks towards Pennsylvanians of all walks of life, but even for Tom Corbett today’s remark is shockingly offensive. It’s more proof we need a new governor who respects every Pennsylvanian.”
There is no analogy that is appropriate for gay marriage except to say that love is love and civil rights for one are civil rights for all. That is why I have signed on for Mayors For Marriage Equality.”
“The politics of division and social injustice can no longer be tolerated in Pennsylvania or in this country. Again, I’ll repeat, that only by working together, no matter what your ethnic or religious background, or sexual preference, can we move Pennsylvania forward.”
