Have you seen the new Volkswagen commercials where the selfish VW owner tells the neighbor and/or friend admiring his new car: “You can’t have the same car as me!”

Each and every time I see one of these commercials it reminds me of the ridiculous talking points of people who oppose same-sex marriage.

Both stories go something like this: If other people can have the same thing I have (e.g. marriage, car), somehow it makes my thing less important, less special or less cool.

In the case of the VW commercial, it’s actually intended to be funny.

With same-sex marriage opponents, it just comes across that way.


  • Same-sex marriage is an injustice, an insult to the noble faculty of reason, and an absolute mockery of: the Laws of Nature, civil society, and the preservation and perfection of mankind.

    The broken families which same-sex marriages purposely create are necessarily vicious toward those naturally occurring consanguineous obligations between family members from which nations, sociability, and benevolence have naturally emanated.

    Children are not pets one purchases from rescue shelters (adoption clinics) and puppy mills (insemination and surrogacy). Children are human beings endowed with a natural desire to be procreated from an act of love between a husband and a wife. Same-sex marriage is adulterous by nature and thereby destructive to civilization.

    In fine, same-sex marriage is an unnatural extravagance which the supporters most ignorantly claim to be a “right”.

    “No one has a right to do that which, if everybody did it, would destroy society.” —Immanuel Kant

    You could actually say the same about a lot of heterosexual marriages.

    so I’m guessing you’re anti-adoption and pro-abortion in cases of rape or out-of-wedlock intercourse since kids want to be procreated in love by married parents.
