The End of the End Times
Ed Brayton, who must have a cast iron cerebral cortex, spends his days traversing the malaria infested swamps of wingnutistan. Lately he has come back with a remarkable harvest of reactions to the Supreme Court's decision on same sex marriage, from such as megapreacher Robert Jeffress, Tony Perkins, not the original psycho but a more modern one, Glenn Beck associate Matt Walsh, and various others. Visit his blog and you can see them all!
What is passing strange about all this is that we have had same sex marriage in many states for many years now, not to mention most of western Europe and a few other places around the world. And in all of those places, the only thing that has happened is that people of the same sex have gotten married. The Obergefell decision just made this true in the rest of the states. So far, God has not withdrawn his hand of protection from Massachusetts, has not smitten Britain, and Muslim terrorists have not used same sex marriage as a rationale for attacking U.S. interests, among other non-happenings. When people get married in Alabama and Louisiana, and nothing else happens, what are these people who are currently foaming at the mouth and laying in the survival supplies going to say to their fans?
Just curious. On the other hand, they must really believe their own bullshit because it will be demonstrably just that very shortly.
