On his radio show today, conservative Rush Limbaugh surrendered to the possiblity of legalized gay marriage, reported Mediaite.com. He also claimed that homosexuals have never been discriminated against (audio below).
“This issue is lost,” said Limbaugh. “It is now inevitable.We lost the issue when we started allowing the word ‘marriage’ to be bastardized and redefined.”
“Once you decide to modify the word marriage then the other side has won,” Limbaugh explained. “The best thing that marriage had going for it was basically what they teach you the first day in law school: If you hang on a horse the sign that says ‘Cow,’ it does not make it a cow. Although today it might. And that’s where we are today.”
“Discrimination is not an issue and never was. No one sensible is against giving homosexuals the rights of contract, or inheritance, or hospital visits. There’s nobody that wants to deny them that. The issue has always been denying them a status that they can’t have by definition. And by definition, same sex people cannot be married.”
