Is Marriage Under Attack?
That’s what Brian Wlliams of NBC Nightly News claimed on his show on November 19th:
He doesn’t say exactly what marriage is under attack from, but as Jeremy at Good As You points out, his comment fits nicely into the anti-gay conservative frame that evangelical activists are are promoting about gays wanting to destroy the “sanctity of marriage.
“Marriage is being harmed by a lot of things like serial adulterers like Rudy Guiliani and Newt Gingrich, economic pressures that make it difficult for couples to stay together and the drive-through marriage culture of Las Vegas. Same-sex couples wishing to marry have nothing to do with those things.
Gay Americans should be applauded for fighting so hard for the right to marry as some heterosexuals like Britney Spears change who they are married as often as the change their hair extensions.
Say it with me Brian, “Same-sex couples are not a threat to marriage.”
