Why Draw the Line at Couples?

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here's Art in Windsor, Connecticut, as we go back to the phones. Hello, sir.

CALLER: Rush, how you doing?

RUSH: I'm fine, sir. Thank you.

CALLER: Look, I just think, you know, there used to be laws that said black people can't marry white people. I don't think this is any different. I mean, if you're gay and you want to marry somebody who's gay, marry somebody who's gay. That's your business. What is the business of the state government or the federal government telling me who I can and can't marry?

RUSH: You are serious with this? You want to equate interracial marriage to homosexual marriage?

CALLER: Yeah, I think that a person should be able to make their own personal decision. I think actually this should be something the Republican Party should be in support of. It's individual rights, you can marry whoever you want.

RUSH: You don't have to worry, the Republican Party's moving in that direction, it is.

CALLER: Yep.

RUSH: Well, let me ask you this. Where does this freedom to do what you want stuff stop? And what, in your case, what would two people wanting to do raise a red flag for you? What would you say, "Now, wait a minute, no, no, no, you shouldn't do that?"

CALLER: Well, I think if you were talking about like a three-party marriage, an eight-party marriage --

RUSH: Why? If you love one, you can love two. What if all three people love each other and they want the benefits and all that, who among us should deny those three people their love?

CALLER: I think they can be loved, I just don't think you need to give it a legal status because --

RUSH: Why not?

CALLER: Because two people would make a family, they could raise kids, adopt kids, do whatever they want, I don't think --

RUSH: Wait a minute. But why can't three people do that? In fact, if you have two of the same sex and one of the opposite sex, you've handled the adoption issue. You don't need to adopt. You can have one woman and two guys in a marriage, and the woman could be impregnated by the two, and, voila, you got a family.

CALLER: I don't see that.

RUSH: You got a lot of love and what could possibly be wrong with that?

CALLER: I think society's determined that two spouses, two people --

RUSH: Well, wait, society's determined, you know, by the way, human civilization, from the beginning of time, has determined that marriage is a union of a man and a woman. The Republicans didn't do it.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: Conservatives didn't do it.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: Churchill didn't do it. Margaret Thatcher didn't do it. Gorbachev didn't do. It was humanity which did it. You just said society has determined that -- well, society has determined that marriage is between a man and a woman, but I don't think society's right in that case.

CALLER: No, no. I don't agree with you. I think society has evolved away from that. I think the people in general think that you want if you want to marry somebody you should be able to marry them.

RUSH: Well, someday society is gonna evolve away from marriage by two people and could be three or four, and you're gonna oppose that then for some reason. You're gonna deny those people their love.

CALLER: Yeah, I would. I would oppose that.

RUSH: Why? I don't understand. Why would you discriminate that way? What does the number matter when we're talking about love here?

CALLER: 'Cause I think that in general, two people are necessary to raise a family unit. You need two parents.

RUSH: Well, why? Because every family's got grandparents and aunts and uncles. It's always more than just two people raising the child. It's a village doing it sometimes in the Clintons' case.

CALLER: Not in my family. I never had the village come to my house and raise my family. I think it generally takes two people. I'm not homosexual. I became a Republican after Lieberman got thrown out of the Democratic Party --

RUSH: Right.

CALLER: -- because I said if the party doesn't have enough room for Joe Lieberman, it doesn't have enough room for me. But I think that once that decision has been made, that in our society, financially and economically, you need who people to raise --

RUSH: Well, let me play devil's advocate with you because in the case of homosexual marriage, without additional steps, those two people can't produce a family.

CALLER: Right, they can't. They'd have to adopt. But then you'd have to --

RUSH: Well, adopt or have a surrogate, artificial womb somewhere.

CALLER: Yes. Or you'd have to say I've got, you know --

RUSH: Do you think maybe society -- (crosstalk)

CALLER: -- sterile woman --

RUSH: Do you think marriage evolved in society precisely because it takes one of each sex to make another human being?

CALLER: It used to.

RUSH: Let me ask you this. Do you believe or not believe, do you think it matters or not that a child grow up with two parents or one?

CALLER: I think in an ideal world it's better to have a male and female parent, but I think that the world is never ideal and I think having two parents of the same sex is better than having one parent who is not the same sex.

RUSH: Why do you think that?

CALLER: I think two-parents are better than one parent. I think two parents help to raise a family properly, and I think it really helps if you have a two-parent family.

RUSH: But why? What do two accomplish that one can't?

CALLER: Well, they produce more income. They have more time to divide among their kids. If one parent needs to take the kids to school and the other one needs to go to work, they can do that, I mean they can divide the -- it's a more resource available situation.

RUSH: But with feminism you don't have anybody at home anymore. Both husband and wife go off to work and they either got day care or a nanny or somebody else not in the family raising the kid.

CALLER: I think that was a temporary thing. I think that's kind of shifting back the other way now, as you were talking about just a few days ago, I think, weren't you?

RUSH: Well, the phenomenon, yes, of feminist women deciding after birth that, "You know what? I think I want to stay home with the child." Yes, that is happening.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: It has been happening for awhile. So we could say that you hate single mothers. You hate single parents.

CALLER: No, I don't think you could say that. I just think it's not the ideal situation.

RUSH: Well, no, but that's what's gonna happen to you. I just want to warn you, you're gonna become a hater and a bigot. This is how the people, if there's a movement out there for single parent families and it's perfectly fine, it's nobody's business, but you, Art, come along say, "No, there have to be two parents, even if the same sex," you are gonna become a hater if you oppose the single parent family movement, should there ever be one, you will be called a hater and a bigot. I'm just trying to prepare you for it.

CALLER: Well, thanks, Rush. I appreciate the update there.

RUSH: Okay, so our caller here hates single mothers. That's what we've learned today from Art --

CALLER: All right, thank you.

RUSH: -- at the end of the call. Art, I appreciate your call. I really do. I hope you have a wonderful day out there.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: There is a movement in this country that you don't hear much about called polyamory. Our caller Art said, "Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no. That's where I draw the line." You can't have more than two people get married.

Well, there's a movement for that, and the proponents are being urged to shut up about it and just do it.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Now, we had a guy on the phone here a moment ago named Art who steadfastly maintained that he does have limits on this stuff. He thinks it's fine if two men want to get married and if two women want to get married. That's cool. None of our business. They love each other, that's great. And two parents, even the same sex, better than a single parent. So Art clearly hates single parents, as things work out in America today. But I said, "Well, okay, Art, at what point will these kind of arrangements become something you can't agree with?" He said, "Well, three people, if three people want to get married, I'm gonna draw the line."

"Why?"

"Well, it's just too many."

"Well, why? I mean, the more love, the better. Two people in love, three people in love. Two people of one sex, one of the opposite sex, I mean you got constant sex that way and you've got constant babies being born, and, oh, you don't need adoption."

That did it. He couldn't go for that. I kept probing. Why not? What's wrong with three? Why not four? It's just like the minimum wage argument. You can eventually reach an amount that even proponents say is too much. And here with the gay marriage argument, you can construct a definition of marriage that even proponents of same-sex marriage will say, "No, no, no, no, that's going too far." But, see, once you cancel the definition of marriage, then it can become anything. And that's another thing that Roberts is saying. Once you take something that has a specific definition, and you obliterate that, then it can become anything you want and there's no limit to it.

So there's a church out there, folks, called the Unitarian church. Many of you have heard of it. You just don't want people to know that you know. There's a joke about Unitarians. The joke is -- and this is the Washington Post saying this. This is not an El Rushbo joke, just so you know. It's right here in the Washington Post. "The joke about Unitarians is that they’re where you go when you don’t know where to go. Theirs is the religion of last resort for the intermarried, the ambivalent, the folks who want a faith community without too many rules. It is perhaps no surprise that the Unitarian Universalist Association is one of the fastest-growing denominations in the country, ballooning 15 percent over the past decade.

"But within the ranks of the UUA over the past few years, there has been some quiet unrest concerning a small but activist group that vociferously supports polyamory. That is to say 'the practice of loving and relating intimately to more than one other person at a time.'" Now, you people in Rio Linda know all about this. But for the rest of you, polyamory is loving and relating to three people in a relationship, four people in a relationship at the same time. And the Unitarians have "a mission statement by Unitarian Universalists for Polyamory Awareness (UUPA)." That's the acronym, UUPA. He-he. It is. "The UUPA 'encourages spiritual wholeness regarding polyamory.'"

Now, here's the problem. What's the limit? Where do you draw the line on polyamory? Two women and one man? One women and six men? Three women and two men? Twelve people? Where do you draw the line? The line has not been drawn. The polyamorists don't want any such lines. They don't want any limits whatsoever. A great example of this would be the famous rapper Shawty Lo. Remember him? He was gonna have that great TV show, the rapper in Atlanta. The Oxygen network canceled it. Boy, this guy was ahead of his time. This guy had 11 kids with ten baby mamas. They canceled this show because it was upsetting. But this guy fits right in now. That show could be exactly what's called for, especially to humiliate Roberts. You know, you could put that show on a DVD and drop it off at Roberts' office and say, "Here, these are my friends."

So it is happening out there within the Unitarian church. But the headline of this story is: "Many Unitarians Would Prefer That Their Polyamory Activists Keep Quiet." In other words, don't talk about it, don't call attention to what we're doing here, just do it. If you have a spiritual wholeness and an intimate relationship with three people, do it, but don't tell anybody. Don't run around and brag about it when you go to the IHOP, you know, just do it. And this church is growing.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here is Paul in Ottawa, Canada. Hi, Paul. I'm glad that you called and got through. Welcome.

CALLER: Hi there. Great White North mega dittos.

RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much.

CALLER: Okay. You're absolutely right in what you say about, if same-sex marriage is made a civil right, then it's gonna brand everybody who's opposed to it as a bigot. That's pretty much what's happened up here, and it hits hardest on teenagers, I think, really, 'cause the peer pressure they face from other teenagers or from the educational system is really intense. You know, at times it drives a real wedge between parents and children.

RUSH: That is exactly the ploy being used here.

CALLER: Yup.

RUSH: This is the #1 issue among people under 30 in this country, even conservative young people under 30, and it is this technique that has secured it. I think you're right.

CALLER: It often drives a real wedge between both kids and their church as well if they're active in a church. It really goes beyond just branding individuals as bigots, though. If you say that same-sex marriage is a human right or a civil right or something along those lines, then every single church that stands for traditional marriage suddenly becomes like the KKK. That's a very dangerous situation to be in.

RUSH: Because they're opposed to "civil rights." The KKK was opposed to civil rights, and gay marriage is a civil right. So if you're opposed to it, you're no different than the Klan.

CALLER: Yeah. So how can the government justify giving you a break on property taxes or counting you as a charity if you're an organization opposed to a civil right.

RUSH: Exactly.

CALLER: In fact, there's actually a legal precedent.

RUSH: Right!

CALLER: That would give the government a lot of power to impose very harsh penalties on churches under that circumstance. If you go back to the late 1800s where there was this big fight between Mormons -- who were practicing polygamy, that definition of marriage -- and the federal government that had a monogamous definition of marriage, was a bill passed called the Edmunds-Tucker Act. That law wound up stripping anyone who didn't accept, like swear an oath to accept the state's definition of marriage, of rights.

If you didn't do that, you did not have the right to vote. You did not have the right to serve in a public office. You did not have the right to serve as a juror. Wives could be compelled to testify against their husbands or be sent to jail if they didn't. The Mormon Church itself was dis-incorporated and its assets were seized. And, you know, this sets a legal precedent that could be turned around at Catholics, Baptists, Mormons again, and every other church that holds to traditional marriage if you go and say that same-sex marriage is a right.

RUSH: Right. You know, it's not just that. It also works on the Manhattan, under-30, bar scene conservatives. Nobody wants to be called a bigot. Nobody wants to be thought of as discriminating against "love," which is apparently a commodity in short supply.

CALLER: Yes.

RUSH: Because whenever people find it, we're supposed to stop everything and celebrate it. It's so hard to find it out there now that when it is discovered, we gotta stop and celebrate it and proclaim support for it no matter what. Let me ask you this philosophically: Could we get to the point where we would say opposite-sex couples are bigoted because they're not marrying people of the same sex?

CALLER: (pause) Possibly. You know, give it time. I think anything's possible.

RUSH: (laughing)

CALLER: I think the real issue here isn't, you know, is same-sex marriage a right or not but who gets to decide what's a human right or not. That really is fundamental to what kind of government you have. You know, if you have a monarchy, the king has the ultimate power. If it's a theocracy, then some church or religious body has the ultimate power. Who has the ultimate power in the United States to decide what's a human right and what isn't? Is it some oligarchy of judges or politicians, or is it the people?

RUSH: It's a combination of both, but it's an oligarchy of judges that are deciding everything in this country. But you raise a good point: How long will it be before churches lose their tax deductions if they don't perform same-sex marriages? I'm not joking. People who engage in opposite-sex marriage, are they going to someday be bigots for not marrying somebody of the same sex? Which is the popular and hip thing to be doing. (interruption) Now, Snerdley, you're smirking at me, but I'm just taking this...

See, I love logic and I love context. I love to take things and ask, "Okay, do something today. Where will it lead down the road?" Which hardly anybody thinks about. (interruption) Why do we think it's popular? (interruption) What, same-sex marriage? (interruption) Well, Snerdley is telling me that everybody he knows is sick and tired of hearing about it and they just want it to go away. I will have to concur. A lot of my friends have a different reason they want it to go away.

They don't care.

They are so worried about what's happening to the economy, they are so worried about what their kids' futures economically are not gonna be, that they don't care about this. They think, "Just to hell with it! Why are we wasting time on something like this that doesn't matter?" That also is being taken advantage of in pushing the effort. But, you see, the reason why it all matters and the reason why it's all linked... (big sigh) Boy, am I gonna get in trouble in this. It's just whole concept of morality.

There's gotta be a moral foundation to every aspect of life in a free society or it's gonna vanish. We were talking earlier about this. When freedom is defined as anything you want to do with no moral underpinning, with no virtue attached, freedom without virtue is not really freedom. And I forget, Oz somebody, his book, I quoted from. I forget his last name, but he said this is the root to the decline of free societies is this open-ended definition of freedom to which no virtue is attached. "Hello, Rome," for example, is his point.

Why not a man and a boy?

Why not a man and a goat?

Ask these questions of any pro-gay marriage supporter, and you'll find out that they indeed have a line, just as you do. They just disagree where the line should be drawn.

All the arguments for gay marriage are emotional pablum, and of course they can apply to all kinds of unusual relationships.

Why can’t we have polygamy? If we have say, a guy and 2 girls, the gay rights movement should be happy because the women can be bisexual and everyone can have one big party.

And won’t a child be so lucky to have a father and two mothers?

Once you let the left bitch slap you with their arguments, we are through the looking glass. That’s why you needed to stand up to them at the beginning.

No, it will not be good if we allow gays to marry and adopt so a kid is raised knowing he has two “fathers” who put their penises in each other’s rectums. It’s just absurd. But hey, they “love” each other. Ok, good for them enjoy it but leave society alone.

Rush is precisely right. What’s truly being debated in the USSC today is not whether gay marriage is Constitutional but if the traditional defintion of marriage is Constitutional. That said, if gay marriage becomes legal then there is ZERO justification to prohibit consenting adults from marrying multiple spouses.

Also, the Unitarians are not the only poly-friendly denomination out there. The United Church of Christ is poly-tolerant and the United Methodist Church is also poly-tolerant but not nearly as much as the UCC is.

They just say to you, “oh that’s ridiculous”.

But that is exactly the initial reaction to gay marriage.

The give away was “LGBT”.

Why did people who were born gay and want rights, include in their movement bisexuals and transgender from the beginning, if it isn’t the “anything goes” movement?

Why would they support bisexuals when that goes against their whole argument of having no choice?

And why include obvious psychological disorders like transgender and men who want to dress up as women?

How is that gay? I guess two men should be allowed to dress as women and both marry as women and be a child’s mother. Why not?

There is a lot more historical and biblical justification for polygamy than gay marriage. I agree, as sweeping decision would open the door for polygamy and other lifestyle choices.

Quite true. One of the things going on in Europe and in the USA is the push to normalize child molestation the same way homosexuality was normalized.

agree, every argument for their sham marriage can be used for any kind of marriage.

I hear Govt out of it, I hear all the usual stciker slogans but in the end just leave the marriage issue alone and instead of attacking mariage then frigging defend it.
Mention how children are better off, mention the diesease etc.

I had one of my boys friends here and he was told at hsi school how it was a right bla boa and said he was not sure about it.
I talked ot him and said do you have any idea what they do to eahc other and where the feces comes out and right there he said Yuck and that was it, he is totally against it

That;s for you GOP, not you Williams...
Hollywood puts oit how two beautiful women have sex and love each other or how two men are just wanting to be left alone.
They don;t show the feces coming out or mention the diseases they get from having sex wiht feces all the time or even show how they patrol and lurk dog parks, toilets, hiking trails, truck stops etc

So, what does the Q in LGBTQ mean? “Questioning.” Yep, “questioning” is some kind of inherent sexual orientation...

Not sure if you’re joking or not but I almost would like to push polygamy especially in hard core left states. I would almost bet the thought of polygamy makes them uncomfortable.

I think the reason Lefties don’t want men with multiple wives is because it results in multiple children and we can’t have those cockroach-children spreading the filth damaging the environment.

Maybe this is pouring gasoline on the fire but I’m truly sick of this. It’s time to infiltrate on their turf.

It’s funny you mention anal sex.

Most people that support this kind of garbage giggle at the thought of anal sex humor: They know it doesn’t belong there!

It’s also amazing to watch how science gets thrown out the window when it comes to this subject.

I doubt this controversy has much to do with marriage, homosexuality, polygamy or polyandry, bestiality, or pedophilia at all. I think the crux of the matter is the imaginary authority of the feral government to define and decide all moral issues for the commoners.

I've never seen anything in the Constitution that authorizes the feral government to do any such thing.

Polygamny makes virtually all women uncomfortable regardless of political orientation or family size. It only seems to work on a very small scale when all the wives get on well together and any inheritance is legally limited to one child or split evenly. If you think things are complicated now, imagine what would happen when those relationships go bad.

Nobody saw ‘gay marriage’ coming 30 years ago. I have to say that if the state can punish you for not buying into an impossibility like ‘gay marriage’, then it is also possible to punish you for buying into normal marriage. After all, to the state, normal marriage is just whatever judges, pols, or the voting majority think it is at any one time.

One.. it brings on images of women without careers stuck in the kitchen.

Two.. it strengthens the odds of multiple carbon-producing children who are taught to read the bible.

It’s more of a fight fire with fire proposition than something I really support. It’s not something I would participate in.

I think you would see that the majority of the left are much like this caller (even though he claimed he was GOP).

I feel the same way,. I truly hope that polygamy is sued in those socialist states and lets see where thee turd pokers etc stand on that issue.

From what I have heard then they are against it, but but but but but, they do shoUt equality, ARF.

Agree too, these people have been moving state to state imposing their agendas and I woudl love to see a muslim or mormon polygamy family argue their case in their states and also use the religious part of it too.

I;ve had it with their agenda and them moving to other areas pushing their agenda

polygamy is more normal than homosexuals playing families, hell at least their is a mother and a father for the kids.

Hey didn;t the socialist left state how it takes a village to raise a family, well polygamy goes well for them then.

Also if the left do use a village to raise their kids then it explains why so many of their kids are screw up as when you have the village raise your kids then you also get the village idiot raising them too

Polygamy makes everyone uncomfortable. Unless you are a slave running godless raghead.

This is the best argument against homosexual marriage there is, but polygamy and human-animal marriage are often cast asside because liberals cite ‘exploitation’ and ‘the nature of consent’ to deny those relationships are equal.

You can corner them on homosexual incest however. No danger of deformed kids, so why can’t a man marry his brother, or his uncle, or his dad?

“Because... because... I can’t believe you’d compare those two things, you bigot!”

I just almost puked watching O’Reilly and Kelly plug homosexual marriage, and call the opposition arguments ‘weak’. O’Reilly wants every American to be happy. Well, here’s some news from you. Pedophiles aren’t happy unless they get to screw children, so you better stop pushing Jessica’s Law, you blowhard.

I am beyond sick of hearing about this. If Bush had appointed someone remotely competent, and Bork had been confirmed under Reagan, we could have got a ruling that stated unequivocally, “Homosexual marriage is unconstitutional because it violates the Establishment Clause. Government cannot redefine a religious ceremony. Prop 8 Stands. All states recognizing homosexual marriage are acting unconstitutionally”
Instead, we’ve ended up with 3 real justices. 4 activist liberals. 2 morons who don’t even know the obvious answer to this issue. That’s our judiciary.

I agree. If homosexuals get their ‘right’, polygamists better stand up and demand the same. It’s a civil right don’t ya know!

Abortion would be another topic as well...

I hate to be involved with it in anyway but wouldn’t it be funny to watch someone claim they could determine if a baby was going to be born gay or not and have it terminated because of it?

That’s not one I want to play with but you get my drift.

You need to stop watching the news and pay more attention to what is actually going on around you. THEN you can go beyond sick to psychotically enraged. Worked for me.

oh I hear you and agree with you.

Do to them as they have been doing to most of this country for decades, hell lets see millions of southerners move to MA and take over their state.
Everywhere they go they hear southerner accent. confedrate flags, grits sold everywhere, started voting in good ole boys and gals, lets see how they like it when laws are passed which goes against their agenda and views.

Then we get them as teachers up there, we teach marriage man and women is right, we tell kids it;s normal for guys to be guys and gals to be gals

They;d be running off to their highly paid shrinks crying they are being bullies and it;s not fair

No. I’m not going to go down to San Francisco and take notes on these freaks. At least they can’t show the bad stuff on T.V.... but that’s coming, folks. The next Superbowl half-time will be celebrated by broadcasting homosexual porn.

Polygamy is legal in Ontario, Canada. I don’t know if it is legal in Canada’s other provinces. It is also legal in India.

That is a fact.I have witnessed first hand some pro-gay marriage liberals squirm when discussing a known relationship that was incest-gay. I wanted to bring it up but it wasn't the right time or place. I remember thinking, "what's the difference?"

They're also the first ones to make fun of heterosexual incest.

What's so funny about heterosexual incest? They can't reproduce normally just like homosexual couples! Why can't they marry?/sarc

They can cite exploitation in polygamy all they want, they are adults and they made the CHOICE to be in a polygamist marriage. Who gave them the right to make the choice for them...yadda...yadda. But remember it's all about LOVE! Right? What if in the polygamist relationship the two women are getting it on for some side action? Who said the marriage was a love triangle, and who are they to determine it? Maybe it's one big orgy??

You’re exactly right. I’d call homosexuality ‘exploitation’. Men who screw other men exploit them for pleasure, while increasing the recipients risk of anal cancer and other diseases and complications, but they agree to it... so its okay! Well, then polygamy has to be okay.

I was just thinking, hat-tip to the Russians for ending adoption of Russian children by American families. I think it came down to this stuff gathering steam. Clearly, the Russian government doesn’t want their kids growing up in a homosexual society.

A bit of something else. What I meant is that from MY HOUSE I can see the ENTIRE WORLD going to crap. I don't have a phone. I do have a tv. Over the air channels. Last weekend there was a Cook's Country episode featuring simple Chechen Gorgon Blew. My wife made it for supper last night and I had it for lunch today. But the F###ing cops never responded to my call about the fool racing up and then down the street because his dope dealer wasn't (apparently) home. The people next door do NOT speak English, but they drive better cars. My landlord is in jail on 2 counts of L&L. My US Senator Mike Crapo got busted DUI and got a pass but my coworker got a DUI (first one) and they HAMMERED him. The company I work for WILL probably fire him for it when they find out.

And somehow if I immerse myself in the MSM I am going to feel better?

Making the gay marriage the moral equivalent of inter-racial marriage is an easily defeated argument.

The inter-racial ban NEVER had anything to do with the definition of marriage. It was a ban on two people entering into a legally recognized relationship, because they were different races - this was clearly a denial of rights based on race.

Gays are not prohibited from marrying - they can, and have married for centuries. What they haven’t been able to do is call a homosexual relationship a marriage. This does not violate their rights.

I might want to adopt my horse, call her my daughter, put her on my health care, give her hospital visitation rights and claim her as a dependant...I’m not allowed to do it, but my rights aren’t violated.

Silly you.

I didn’t tell you how it is for me. It is worse.

The point is is that unless I take care of the things I CAN TAKE CARE OF I am useless when it comes to the rest.

And that simple chicken cordon bleu my wife made was worth eating. TWICE in a row.
