"Marriage is not some prize that liberals can award to a small, vocal and already well-off special interest group. Marriage between one man and one woman was created prior to the formation of any governments and is given benefits by governments because it uniquely contributes to a productive society."
-- Family Research Council President Tony Perkins in a statement released after the Respect for Marriage Act passed a Senate committee. Perkins has apparently forgotten his Biblical history; perhaps someone should remind him that King David had at least 11 wives - 12 if you count Merab, who was given to David for killing Goliath. Jesus, who Perkins purports to worship, was supposedly a direct descendent of King David.
