Jon Stewart mocks ‘slippery sodomy slope Scalia’

On his show Thursday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart ripped “bullshit slippery slope” arguments that conservatives touted to defend their opposition to same sex marriage.

Stewart noted that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had recently compared same sex marriage to polyamory.

“What Lindsey Graham is doing there is making the age-old slippery slope argument,” he explained. “I mean if gay people can get married, why can’t three people get married, or ten people, or anybody to anything. Again, placing gayness into the category of a whimsical desire for something unconventional as opposed to a state of being who you are.”

Stewart remembered that the U.S. Supreme Court was going to take up the issue and predicted the justices wouldn’t be swayed by logical fallacies.

But Stewart’s prediction was shattered after learning that Justice Antonin Scalia had recently defended comparing laws against sodomy to laws against murder after being asked about it by a gay Princeton University student.

“Good old slippery sodomy slope Scalia,” Stewart remarked, disappointed. He mocked Scalia for being surprised he had not persuaded the gay student that his love life was equivalent to murder.

“No wonder Scalia never lets himself be recorded,” Stewart quipped.

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
