Daniel Tosh gets it right about gay marriage

In light of the recent Supreme Court deliberations on the laws regarding gay marriage:

In this classic bit of Daniel Tosh, he discusses Proposition 8, Gay Marriage in California, and the Mormon opposition to it.  He makes fun of Mormons in this joke.  I don’t post this to make fun of Mormons in general.  I’m past that stage. I’m over it, I’m at peace with it all.

…EXCEPT FOR WHEN PEOPLE ARE ACTING LIKE ASSHOLES, and they happen to be Mormons.  I’ll speak up in that case. I’ll do it to Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, or whoever else cares to behave poorly.  It’s nothing personal.

I’m not gay. I am not married, and I don’t even necessarily believe in the institution of marriage as our culture currently practices it.  That being said, consenting adults should be able to do enter into whatever contracts they wish.

That being said, I give you, Daniel Tosh:

“This is what I say to the most conservative person that’s so terrified of gay marriage becoming legal:  Just because the state says it’s legal, it’s not like God’s gonna let them into heaven?!   You can still sleep sound every night, knowing that goal line defense is up at the pearly gates going, “You’re not getting in here, *&^$#!”   Do you remember the commercials they ran? A little gir would come running home from school, saying “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy!  Teacher said that when I get older, I can marry a princess if I want to.  And they go, “What are you gonna do when your kid says THAT?”  And every parent in California is like  “Whoah… We are gonna have to talk to our kids?  Sorry queers. NOPE!   That’s Esperanza’s job.”

Argue with that.  I dare you.
