Rush Limbaugh Talks the ‘Marriage Contract,’ Gay Marriage

In the midst of the Supreme Court’s weighing of gay marriage, Rush Limbaugh spoke with a caller from Morristown, NJ who brought up the point that the marriage contract is not something that you can just change where you see fit. In other words: if you decide to change any single part of it, you will need to do a complete overhaul.

“In a case in 2003 with Lawrence v. Texas — I’m reading it from an article — it says, ‘If the high court removes one natural parameter for one special interest group, then that equal protection under the law would require that it removes all natural marriage parameters for all special interest groups,’” said Lisa from New Jersey.

She went on to say that this statement explains that once the legal bounds of the contract (of what we know now as marriage today) are gone, anything from that point forward will fit the definition of “love.”

Limbaugh took his own stance on the argument.

“She was talking about contracts, folks, just so you understand, and we all are equal in the ability to make contracts,” he said. “Everybody can contract with a member of the opposite sex to marry them, but her point was if same sex fits the bill of the contract, then everything fits the bill. And at some point, who’s to say you cannot have sex with a child, at some point? I mean, if love is involved.”

The Supreme Court is currently hearing two same-sex marriage cases, including a challenge to California’s Prop 8.
