Ken Klukowski of the Family Research Council and the American Civil Rights Union claimed today that since even pederastic Greeks, who “put homosexuality on a pedestal,” didn’t legalize same-sex marriage, neither should the U.S. Speaking with FRC colleagues Tom McClusky and Kenneth Blackwell on Today’s Issues on American Family Radio, Klukowski argues that Americans shouldn’t support marriage equality because no civilization through history has done so:
Marriage has existed in every culture, in every country around the world, for thousands and thousands of years, since the beginning of humanity. Same-sex marriage has existed for less than a decade. It was not until the year 2002 that it was recognized in any nation on earth in the history of the world and even cultures that embraced homosexuality like the ancient Greeks, the reality is even in those cultures where they were putting homosexuality on a pedestal, they never presumed to do anything to try to redefine the institution of marriage, that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. So we are in an extraordinary place where for more than 5,000 years of human history, in every country around the globe marriage was understood to be between men and women, and now we’re in this entirely brave new world where we’re redefining this basic unit of human civilization.
