Six Terrible Anti-Gay Comments From the Mouth of Rush Limbaugh

Rob Tornoe / The Contributor (click to view more cartoons)No one is a bigger hypocrite on the issue of traditional marriage than Rush Limbaugh, who enjoys weddings so much he decided to get married four times. Still, that doesn't stop him from filling the minds of dittoheads across the country with hateful nonsense about marriage equality and the rights of gay people.

Here are just a handful of terrible things Rush has said on the issue, and why no one, except the hateful bigot listening alone in his survivor-equiped basement, should ever take Limbaugh seriously.

Compares gay marriage to loving his couch.

A guest caller suggested to Limbaugh it's time to take a step back and taking a look at what "progressiveness" is doing to the nuclear family unit. Limbaugh interrupted, saying, "I love my sofa. I sit on it every night."

"If I could marry my sofa, I might think about it. And maybe in a few years, it could be possible," Limbaugh concluded. "You never know."

Claims gay marriage will destroy society.

According to El Rushbo, same-sex marriage is "corrupt" and will eventually lead to the end of civilization.

"Freedom is hedonism," Rush explains "You do whatever you want, and as long as it doesn't hurt anybody else, there's nothing wrong with it.  And it's the 'as long as it doesn't hurt anybody else,' that's where the trouble begins.  Because is there great harm to a society when an age-old, I mean, as old as humanity itself custom is corrupted?"

Gay Marriage will lead to pedophilia.

Expanding on a caller's argument against gay marriage, Limbaugh says we are enjoy the equal ability to make contracts. And if same-sex marriage fits the bill on a contract, why can't anything else?

"...[I]f same-sex fits the bill of the contract, then everything fits the bill," Limbaugh explains. "And at some point who's to say that you cannot have sex with a child... some point."

Gay Marriage is no different than bestiality.

Mocking a Miami lawyer over a case involving a gay couple's adoption choice of having two lesbians and one gay man on the birth certificate, Limbaugh defended previous comments he made claiming the definition of marriage will change.

"I remember being laughed at and mocked and called an extremist for predicting that definitions of family-- what constitutes family-- is now wide open," Limbaugh decried. "Pretty soon you're going to be able to marry your dog-- your dog is going to be an official part of your family who qualifies for benefits."

LGBT members don't deserve equal rights because they're only 2 percent of the population.

So much for protecting the little guy. Limbaugh defended his anti-gay views by noting that the gay population is so small, we shouldn't be inconveniencing anyone over them.

"Do we really want to totally redo cultural standards established from the beginning of humanity for 2 percent of the population?" Limbaugh asked. "No."

Liberals want to normalize pedophilia, just like they did with gay marriage.

According to Rush, progressives have a secret agenda in their promotion of marriage equality, ang it has nothing to do with equal rights.

“There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia. Don’t pooh-pooh it,” Limbaugh said.  "I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage. What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal. And, in fact, with certain people in certain demographics it’s the most important issue in terms of who they vote for.”
