Sorta funny, sorta not
A pro-gay-marriage comment on a news story:
We ARE all equal.That cannot be argued. If you are arguing it, you are inferior, and don't deserve equality for yourself.
and they say conservatives are illogical.
I laughed, but it's not at all funny to consider where this train of thought will carry those who insist on "arguing it."
That's a line that would have been funny in a P. G. Wodehouse novel.

It's funny because of the sheer dumbness.

Do yo have a link to the story?

I'd be more amused if it were less in earnest.
Orwellian, indeed. "All animals are equal."

Not only in earnest, but with an awful lot of cultural momentum behind it. I'm going to post some more about that in the next day or so.
Sorry, Paul, I somehow missed your question. I meant to go back and include the link. It was to a local story by a columnist saying she's for gay marriage because her brother is gay. Here it is.

By the way, the comment I posted was the only one there at the time. I see now the usual exchange of insults followed.
