In His Own Words

“I think that if we can’t defend marriage, that it becomes very hard to defend life,” King said. “Marriage is the crucible by which we pour all of our values and pass them on to our children, and that is how the culture is renewed each time. So, if we lose marriage – for instance, if our children are raised in warehouses, so to speak. There have been civilizations that have tried to do that. The Spartans did that. They took the children away and taught them to be warriors. It’s a good way to defend a country, but not much of a way to run a civilization.

“So, I’m afraid if that happened – if we lose the marriage, we lose the home, we lose the nuclear family then we can’t teach our values. We won’t be able to teach our faith. We won’t be able to teach life. We won’t be able to teach our Constitutional values either. That’s why I’m afraid it’s going to be very, very difficult to defend life.”

— Steve King, (Idiot, IA)

“And that is why life as we know it will end if we let the homos get a tax break for filing jointly,” King did not conclude.

    Wait. Isn’t this an argument FOR gay marriage? Or did I miss the agenda memo that gay marriage would lead inevitably to warehousing kids? Gay dating may sometimes happen in a warehouse, but the child-rearing happens at home!

    I’ve raised my children in warehouses their whole lives and there’s nothing wrong with them that a little spray with a hose won’t solve.

    If we lose that good conservative Christian family life where are all the racists, the homophobes, the war cheerleaders, the climate change deniers, the flat Earthers, the Creationists, the Rapturists and the folks who just can’t hardly wait for the apocalypse be coming from?

  5. Oh lord you just had to mention our resident ass did’nt ya? At least you might have mentioned that 20, I SAID TWENTY people showed up for his “rally.” He’s a horses ass outside of the tiny hate hamlet that keeps electing him to Congress in west Iowa. His FB page is filled with at least half King haters and we just dump on the little fart with glee. Sigh…as I always say, every state has their cross to bear…he is ours.
