Filet de Huckabee

Your celebrity chef this evening is Jon Stewart. And your main course is a homophobe and his tiresome, pathetic attempt to hide behind his increasingly incoherent interpretation of the Bible, or his quickly cobbled together and rigid definition of marriage -- which has, in fact, been constantly evolving over the years. If you need a straw for your beverage, just wait a moment -- Huckabee will be grasping for one pretty soon.

Please people -- if you're really not trying to jam your religion down the throats of the rest of us, you're going to have to come up with a non-Biblical reason for us to discriminate against homosexuals. Otherwise, well... we're done and you're wrong. The biblical argument doesn't work.

(And don't get me started on procreation -- or do you think this marriage should have been prevented?)

Others cover the segment at Pam's House Blend and Towleroad (also here).

And check out this clip (via Joe. My. God):

And this is the reason why that Jon Stewart rules the planets.

I saw that show when it aired. It's hard to believe a major Presidential candidate's core belief about politics and human nature is that if we ALL follow the golden rule we won't need government. Maybe true, but how naive and ignorant can one person possibly be about the role of government, especially after the last eight years? This guy is creepier than Palin, because he's smarter and slicker.

That's what I've been saying all the time: To me, it's not about validating the love between two people but about not denying one group of citizens rights offered to everyone else. Government cannot allow itself to discriminate.

And yes, Jon Stewart rocks!
