PhoboQuotable - Peter Sprigg

"Opposite-sex relationships are the only type capable of producing children through natural intercourse and the only ones assured of providing children with both a mother and a father. Affirming only opposite-sex relationships as 'marriage' thus makes perfect sense. But affirming same-sex relationships as 'marriages' makes no sense. These relationships are incapable of producing children through their sexual union.

"And while some homosexual couples do raise children (most of whom were conceived in previous heterosexual relationships), such arrangements by definition deprive a child of his or her birthright to be raised by both a biological mother and father. Maryland may choose to tolerate and even protect such unconventional childrearing by allowing adoption by homosexual partners or couples. But it has no obligation to actively affirm and celebrate (through 'marriage') the deliberate creation of permanently motherless or fatherless families." - Family Research Council spokesbigot Peter Sprigg, in an editorial published in today's Baltimore Sun.

RELATED: Today Sprigg couches his tired bigotry in the reich-wing's worn out "won't somebody PLEASE think of the children" meme, which the haters have learned plays better with the increasingly indifferent public. That wasn't the case last year when Sprigg's smarmy mask briefly slipped off in that moment when he called for the United States to criminalize homosexuality and suggested that all gay people should be "exported" out of the country.
