An official with the anti-gay hate group Family Research Council has proposed a series of the most uncreative portmanteaus to describe same-sex marriage.
Between their frequently misspelled protest signs and general lack of fashion flair, bigots have long been lacking in the creativity department. But an official with the Family Research Council hit a new level of ridiculous Thursday by proposing that the terms "garriage," "larriage" and "harriage" be used to label gay, lesbian and homosexual marriages. Right Wing Watch reports.
The proposal came from Pat Fagan, the director of FRC's Marriage and Religious Institute in a question to Ryan T. Anderson, who was presenting his new anti-gay book "Truth Overruled" at FRC's headquarters in Washington, D.C..
"A proposal," Fagan said, "something along this line, that we in the pro-family movement start using related terms, but keep 'marriage' for what it always was. So we might call - and this is to be worked out - but something like, if you're talking about gay marriage you call it 'garriage.' If it's lesbian, you call it 'larriage.' If you want a generic homosexual marriage it's 'harriage.' But getting these words into use I think is key. And that will take time, but whomever holds the language ultimately holds the whole game."
