Phyllis Schlafly Gay Son ***DOES NOT*** Support Same-Sex Marriage.
John Schlafly asked if he supports his mother's signature issue of the week -- a constitutional ban on gay marriage -- he stops for a moment to collect his thoughts.
"I think the traditional definition of marriage has served our society well, and it shouldn't be changed," says John Schlafly, choosing his words slowly. "That was the law in every state, and still is except for certain court decisions. I don't see why there's anything wrong with it."
"It doesn't prevent gays from living their personal lives any way they choose," he said quietly, "Gays have all the same civil and political rights as everyone else. The rights guaranteed by our Constitution."

He's over 60 and still scared of what his mother thinks. He's pathetic, as is anyone who would attempt to rationalize his self-loathing, pro-active attempts to work against his own.

It's the fact that they can't have the decency to just say, "You know, that issue isn't important to me as a gay man (or woman)," or "I don't think that's the most important issue facing gay people right now." No....these dried up old has-been queens have to hold court and announce to the fucking world that they are firmly against gay marriage and gays are stupid to even pursue this. Well, every fucking one of those assholes I've known has been one of those guys who only fucked the pretty ones and haven't had sex since they lost their looks at 35. They are worthless pieces of human excrement. It's not that they have a different opinion - it's that they want to ensure that we don't get marriage as a way to prove themselves right.

John is not GAY. He is only a homo who enjoys sex with other men. To be gay one needs to accept their sexual orientation, be willing not to deny it when asked and choose not to live the straight life style. That is what it means to be GAY.

The fact is that "traditional" marriage was created to guarantee paternity by making the wife the husband's property. That way no child could be claimed by another man, keeping the property and inheritance in the husband's hands without challenge.
Companionship marriage has only existed since the late 1800's. Before that, traditional marriage was an arrangement that had nothing to do with love. Traditional marriage took away the wife's autonomy and made her the husband's property.
Marriage has changed dramatically in the few hundred years of colonial and American history. The idea that married people would be equal partners, in any respect, is the most radical change possible. Marriage was never conceived of in that way. The fact that people marry for love and companionship is completely different and in no way reflects what marriage was intended to be or to do. Interracial marriages were completely banned. It was once illegal in parts of this country for black people to even kiss publicly. Interfaith marriages were also banned in parts of the US.
It wasn't all that long ago that it was legal for a man to rape his wife. A hundred years ago, it was legal for him to murder her.
So for ignorant morons to suggest that gay marriage equality is the only change ever to take place in traditional marriage is completely absurd. The biggest change was the notion that wives could be equal to their husbands and that people could marry for love.

Example: My partner isn't a US citizen and I am. He might get deported even though he's educated/working. We can't get married and have it recognized by the INS.

But get real - his carefully culled remarks coincide with those of millions of people, who may otherwise be ordinary decent folk.
Would it be fair to dig up awkward or embarrassing facts about such people (e.g, she had an abortion,; he was expelled from college for cheating) to engage in attacking their characters?
John Schlafly never concealed his sexual orientation - in fact his outing occurred when his name appeared as a financial contributor to the San Francisco Gay Film Festival.
