From the NY Daily News (video below):
It is curious that Worley asked his congregation if they could "imagine kissing some man." He was preaching to a room full of both women and men. This shows that the fundamentalist opposition to same-sex relationships is largely based on the irrational "yuck factor." Here's a cartoon that illustrates this:Originally Posted by NY Daily News
Kissing between members of the same sex is physiologically indistinguishable from kissing between members of the opposite sex. Some cultures think that kissing anyone is "yucky" - when the Thongi of South Africa saw whites kissing, they reportedly said they were "eating each other's saliva and dirt."
This is the real problem with opposition to same-sex marriage - it combines irrational cultural prejudices with religious biases, and that can be a deadly mix.
- Skepticism is the antiseptic of the mind.
- Remember why we debate. We have nothing to lose but the errors we hold. Who but a stubborn fool would hold to errors once they have been exposed?
