I have no idea why anyone keeps giving this idiot a microphone. However, if Joe ‘The Plumber’ aka Samuel Wuzelbacher keeps making offensive and ignorant statements like this, it’s going to create enough backlash to actually help pass marriage equality acts.

“People don’t understand the dictionary-it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.”

I’m sorry, but in the Bible, isn’t marriage defined as one man, several women, and several more concubines (if you can afford them)? This sounds pretty illegal to me. And if the new testament floats your boat, well, just remember that Jesus never got married and ran around with twelve other single dudes.

History Beyond the Keeping of Time

Duffield’s clocks helped to support the Protestant notion that one should always be doing, rather than simply being. And in that sense, he was an early architect of our own 24/7 culture, with its similar emphasis on the value of constant productivity.
