“Granting homosexuals the right to marry is like granting plantation owners the right to own slaves.”
These are the words of three-time presidential hopeful Alan Keyes of the Republican Party. First of all I would really like to thank him for pointing out such a big issue that everyone has overlooked.
If Keyes’ analogy doesn’t represent all that is righteous and holy and you’re naive enough not to see the truth in his statement, that’s fine, cause God will forgive.
But, for the meantime, let us tell you what we think he really wanted to say:
Firstly, he knows that as a slave you have no rights; you must do whatever your master tells you. Similarly, if same sex-marriage is allowed, then straight men and women will have to do whatever the homosexuals want. Legalizing same sex-marriage will give homosexuals the power to marry whoever they want and straight men and women will have no say in it.
Secondly, we don’t have slaves anymore because we want equal rights for all. Slaves are also human beings and they too have the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. The 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments were added to the constitution to protect their rights. Similarly, the Defense of Marriage Act was enacted to protect the rights of straight people who are always tormented by homosexuals who have no moral values.
And finally, come on, oppression of black people isn’t anything at all like the oppression of homosexuals in today’s society. No, sir.
So many of you may have guessed by now that, with Keyes’ right-wing bigotry thinking, he’s probably 200-years-old. He has a lot of experience and knows how our society works more than anyone else so what he says must be correct.
I rest my case. Thank you Mr. Keyes for helping us find the righteous oh glorious light.
