Robert Jeffress Looks to Scandinavia for Reasons to Oppose Gay Marriage
Ah, bless you, Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Because till GLAAD posted this video on its YouTube channel today, we had no idea that First Baptist Church of Dallas's Robert Jeffress was among temp host Jane Velez-Mitchell's guests on CNN's Headline News denouncing same-sex marriage during a rancorous argument over Proposition 8. (Oy, is anything on cable news not rancorous?) Among Jeffress' reasons for wanting same-sex marriage banned: "Countries in Scandinavia that have embraced same-sex marriages have seen the rate of heterosexual marriages plummet to their lowest rates ... and it's destabilizing society." And what say you, Walker, Texas Ranger? Anarchy! --Robert Wilonsky
