Honesty is the best policy in arguments for bigotry…and in this case it’s not very good, it’s dumb.

Patton Oswalt – The Best Argument Against Gay Marriage by frucci

Via What:

This Is Funny, You Should Listen To It of the Day: In this short clip from his upcoming comedy album Finest Hour, Patton Oswalt offers up the only valid argument against same-sex marriage, and proceeds to render all other arguments null and void.



Divorce = Wrong = Legal
Pre-Marital Sex = Wrong = Legal
Adultery = Wrong = Legal
Eating Shellfish = Wrong = Legal
Usury (money lending with interest) = Wrong = Legal
Usury (money lending with interest) = Okay = Legal

Wait what?

Bible = What YOU want to do is wrong, what WE want to do is okay including the parts where it contradicts itself and the parts we weren’t aware of because we only read the parts we like if at all.

    I absolutely LOVE it when people are able to present irrefutable logic and plain, old truth through humor, and this guy does it well! I already know that the phrase, "I'm glad you like a book!" WILL be coming out of my mouth at some point in the near future. This was the best laugh I've had in a couple of days ~ Thanks!
