In the middle of reading the statement, Rush pretends to start crying before breaking into an evil snicker. Now, I know Rush does this kind of thing all the time, but I couldn't help being taken aback by how mean-spirited he was. Here's a guy actually mocking people who have just learned that according to the state, their relationships have no value (either spiritually, legally or practically). Just think of the hate that lurks in the heart of a man who would take pleasure in that, or in the many, many people who agree with him.
I thought to myself, What would Rush do if the situation were reversed? And it occurred to me, there is no opposite situation. Gay marriage gets struck down and there are real victims. Gay marriage gets upheld or allowed, and no one is hurt. No straight marriage becomes invalid, no civil rights are ignored, nothing. There is no legitimate pain or suffering that would follow from the legalization of gay marriage. The heartbreak and injustice on the other side, despite Limbaugh's crocodile tears, is absolutely real.
