(Newser) – Add Rush Limbaugh to the growing list of conservatives who think gay marriage will eventually win the day in America, reports the Washington Post. "I don't care what the Supreme Court does. This is now inevitable," he said yesterday on his radio show, and he asserted that conservatives lost the battle because they lost the language. The crux of his argument:

  • "The left really excels at changing the language to benefit them politically, and they do it in such a way that a lot of people on our side have no idea what's happened until it is too late and the issue is already lost, which this issue is. I maintain to you that we lost the issue when we started allowing the word 'marriage' to be bastardized and redefined by simply adding words to it."

He's right. It's inevitable. Votes will get anything passed. I have to admit I get a laugh out of some gays (I SAID SOME GAYS, NOT ALL). Went to Fantasy Fest in Key West a couple of times with my wife and geesh...the things they do for attention. They are almost their own gender. Not men but not women. A couple guys did the "doggy style" act in the street and the thought of banging tea bags cracked me up for hours. The man side of the lesbian's didn't seem to try so hard to be "noticed". They seemed more comfortable with who they are even though they dressed like men. I had a good time watching the whole show but I will stick with the old normal. The new one is WAY too strange for me.

Equality for ALL! Not just the select few. I was baptized a Catholic and raised a Christian. I am now a Pagan. If you will notice almost all (if not all) of the whiners are hard core Christians.

Rush said something right. (gay marriage is inevitable.) Then he goes right back to being a fat idiot. It's not language stupid, it's equality. It's freedom. It's all the things you claim to love but really you hate because it means people can think for them self and can easily find out that your nothing but hot air. If you're against gay marriage you're wrong. Simple as that.
