“Leftist media attacks can’t mask the absurdity of Massachusetts’s action”
Phoenix, AZ—When the Massachusetts Supreme Court handed down a decision defining marriage as “the establishment of intimacy,” millions of Americans read of the news with disbelief. Among them was conservative Arizona U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth, who accurately defined the ruling as “absurd”.
In response, former Congressman Hayworth offered an interpretation of the Massachusetts ruling. In it, Hayworth said, “I can make the point of absurdity with an absurd point: If you really had affection for your horse, I guess you could marry your horse. But it’s just the wrong way to go, and the only way to protect the institution of marriage is with the federal marriage amendment that I support.”
“But sadly, the liberal media, intent on defending the ultra-leftist, progressive politicians in Massachusetts, are attacking me for standing up once again for family values and for rejecting this absurd court ruling,” said Hayworth. “But they don’t intimidate me at all. I know right from wrong and as a staunch defender of the institution of marriage, I know I can count on millions of supporters across America to stand with me when our values are under attack – and when I am under attack for standing up to defend those values.”
