Tim Huelskamp Predicts Marriage Equality Will 'Destroy' Marriage And The Family

After delivering a feisty speech at last week’s “March for Marriage” about how “real men” must stop gay marriage from harming women, Rep. Tim Huelskamp chatted with the conservative website CNSNews about gay marriage and adoption rights.

The Kansas Republican agreed with a CNSNews reporter’s suggestion that marriage equality will “destroy the institution of marriage and of [the] family” and warned that it will pave the way for polygamy.

When asked if he also opposes the right of gay couples to adopt children, Huelskamp tried to avoid the question by repeating the myth that the government shut down Catholic Charities and in doing so violated the First Amendment.

In reality, a few Catholic Charities branches have chosen to shut down certain services because they refuse to comply with nondiscrimination policies that are a condition for receiving taxpayer subsidies.
