Christian Family Values?

Joe the Plumber sat down for an interview with Christianity Today and was asked about marriage equality. His answer, simply astonishing.

Christianity Today: In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?

Wurzelbacher: At a state level, it’s up to them. I don’t want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it’s wrong. People don’t understand the dictionary–it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do–what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.

Keith Olbermann had more on this on Countdown tonight. Between Joe and Miss California I don’t know who is a worse spokesperson for Christianity today.

    Samuel the non-plumber’s assistant should have just stopped talking when he had the chance. Unfortunately for people like him they just don’t know when to quit. By accepting and promoting gross stereotypes “Joe” qualifies as an unrivaled homophobic bigot. If anyone told me that “you know, I wouldn’t have [you] anywhere around my children” I think I would just explode. The myth of the homosexual predator is so retrograde as to be paleolithic! Didn’t we fight Prop 6 in the 70s around this same issue. But then again, some of his best friends are “homosexuals.” Yeah…..
