Many of you are missing the point that stirs is trying to make.
He is not saying that this law will entice or lead to people wanting to commit incest, polygamy, etc. He is saying that a law written so vaguely (basically defining a marriage partner as anyone of your chosing) could provide a legal means and support for those who do want to participate in incest, polygamy, wedding underage kids, etc. They could and will use this law as a means to legally do it....until the law is eventually rewritten.
What he's doing is playing the "We're not protecting slavery, we're protecting States Rights" type shell game.
Self-described “social media specialist and content provider” Tim Torkildson recounted the firing in a personal blog post, which was subsequently picked up by The Salt Lake Tribune and other outlets. According to that account, Nomen Global owner Clarke Woodger was concerned that a post about homophones—words that sound the same but are defined differently—meant the school would be “associated with homosexuality.”
“He called me into the conference room, and he said, ‘We’re going to let you go,’” Torkildson told Newsweek. “[He said] this blog on homophones is the last straw. You can’t be trusted. I can’t trust you to write a regular blog.”
Torkildson denied that he was accused outright of promoting a “gay agenda.”
“No, that’s all been distorted,” he said. “His [Woodger’s] words to me were, ‘Some people might think that a blog on homophones has something to do with homosexuality.’ And that’s as far as he went on that. He said he hadn’t looked the word up, and then he realized what it was. His objection mainly was he thought the students at the school would not understand. And they would become offended or think the school would have some kind of gay agenda.”
I'm feeling feisty this morning and maybe a little out of my mind. I didn't read their comments but I personally don't think hitting a women is any different than hitting a man and I'm anti-hitting anyone for the most part.
All that being sad, some people (men and women) get out of control and start acting a fool, saying things and doing things that purposely pushes peoples buttons, when acting that way they shouldn't be so naive to think their actions and words aren't going to bring about some consequences. Point is if you really don't want to get punched in the face there are some things you can do or avoid doing to help keep this from happening.
Maaaaaybe can see this with a slap. However, I can see no circumstance where a person says something worthy of a full on Mike Tyson's Punch Out uppercut in the middle of public, especially when said person has no chance of fighting back.
