A Wisconsin Republican congressional hopeful warned Tuesday that a federal court ruling striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage could lead to the legalization of marriage between siblings.
In other words, Mueller -- who is only a small-time pol at this point but who is obviously active on the bigoted theocratic right -- is a massive idiot spouting the same old Rick Santorum-style nonsense about how allowing gays and lesbians to marry will unleash the sort of wet-dream sexual chaos that gets fundies all revved up into frothing-mad hysteria, because apparently they just can't help thinking about all that sibling, not to mention inter-species, sodomizing. They get so hot and bothered about it you'd think they all want to go fuck their pet dogs.
So of course she's a Republican.
Karen Mueller, an Eau Claire attorney whose practice has focused on
opposing abortion and defending those "discriminated against and
harassed in the workplace, the school, college and/or the public square
because of their faith," is one of three Republican candidates seeking
to challenge Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI). At a Republican Party of Monroe
County candidate forum, she denounced the ruling and warned that it
would create a slippery slope.
According to the Tomah Journal,
Mueller said that the ruling might set a precedent that any two people
can marry: "We've got, for instance, two sisters, and these two sisters
want to get married. They love each other. They are committed to each
other. They want to spend the rest of their life together." Lawyers,
Mueller explained, would be able to argue "'We can just do away with
that state law the same way we did away with sodomy laws,'" noting that "once you do away with that, you reveal what is really going on here."
Mueller also suggested that the court's ruling will be overturned on
appeal because the state's ban is not really discriminatory against gay
and lesbian citizens. "They can get married. They just can't get married
to each other," she argued.
