Conservative activist Wayne Allyn Root joined Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman on her radio program on Friday to discuss the Supreme Court’s decision striking down bans on gay marriage, which Root said “was the best thing to ever happen” to divorce attorneys because “gays will never stay married.”
“Marriage is the most difficult thing in the world,” he said, “I’m talking to you as someone who has been married 24 years, marriage is so difficult that if you do not go to church every Sunday and your whole life isn’t built on a bedrock faith in God and you don’t have kids and your whole life isn’t built around those kids and none of that’s in place and you’re married, the odds of you staying married are close to zero. Divorces will now triple. Gays will never stay married. They just bought themselves the biggest bunch of unhappiness and legal bills that they could ever imagine.”
He added that the Supreme Court’s decision was also the “best thing that ever happened to the Republican Party” and “hands us the election” because candidates will not have to talk about marriage equality as much.
“Good luck and God bless, you’re all getting divorced, and it’s over, it’s not a campaign issue. I say it’s a good day for the Republican Party,” he concluded.
