Gay Marriage is Like What?

According to the Archbishop of San Francisco, Salvatore Cordileone:

Legislating for the right for people of the same sex to marry is like legalizing male breastfeeding.1

Would it be stating the painfully, distressingly obvious to point out that marriage is a human, earthly cultural tradition, which we are free to adapt at will to changing times, and breastfeeding is a bodily function, which we are not really free to delegate to those not properly equipped? Apples and oranges much, Father?

Can we agree that religious conservatives have officially run out of ridiculous things with which to compare same-sex marriage? Now they’re just making shit up. You might as well compare gay marriage to completely random things. Let me try:

Same-sex marriage is like feeding cherubs to neutered unicorns.

Makes just about as much sense to me.
