Watch/listen as Republican Lt. Governor candidate Rebecca Kleefisch channels her inner bigot.
“This is a slippery slope,” Kleefisch said. “In addition to that at what point are we going to be okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table or this, you know, clock? Can we marry dogs?
“This is ridiculous,” continued Kleefisch. “And biblically, again, I’m going to go right back to my fundamental Christian beliefs marriage is between one man and one woman.”
I have to admit….I’ve never encountered anyone who advocated for the right of humans to marry animals or inanimate objects on the grounds of equality.
Clearly Rebecca Kleefisch isn’t a big believer in the second sentence of the Declaration of Independence, which states (with my emphasis), “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Apparently all men/women aren’t created equal and aren’t entitled to the pursuit of happiness in Rebecca Kleefisch’s eyes, especially if those men/women happen to want to marry someone of the same sex.
