Family Research Council: same-sex marriage = marrying a corpse

Quote of the day goes to the Family Research Council (led by Tony Perkins, who, btw, paid $82K to David DuKKKe for his mailing list).

In Rhode Island, a same-sex couple married in Massachusetts is seeking a divorce; because their marriage was not recognized in R.I., when they filed for divorce, it is now in the courts to decide whether it can be dissolved there.

FRC decided to weigh in on the matter by filing a brief to argue that the marriage cannot be recognized (even though there is no law in R.I. banning same-sex marriage), citing this unhinged thinking:

“Following the logic of the appellants and their supporters, man/animal marriage and man/deceased woman marriage must be permitted under Rhode Island law simply because the General Assembly has not expressly prohibited it.”

Tony and Co., when you are able to explain how animals and corpses can grant consent to enter a union of any kind, please let us know.
