Georgia GOP Chairwoman: Gay Marriage Means Getting a ‘Free Ride’

 Sue Everhart Gay Marriage

The best reason to oppose gay marriage? Benefits fraud. At least according to Georgia GOP Chairwoman Sue Everhart. Everhart warned that straight people might enter into fraudulent gay marriages to obtain benefits.

“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” Everhart said. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman.”

Everhart added:

“There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.

This makes no sense for a number of reasons. First, while I suppose it’s ‘theoretically possible’ for heterosexual people to use gay marriage to scam their way into getting tax breaks, there isn’t any evidence of widespread fraud following the adoption of gay marriage in nine states and the District of Columbia. Second, how does gay marriage even fit into this? What’s to stop opposite sex friends from entering into a fraudulent marriage?

Unless Sue Everhart is mentally retarded (which may in fact be the case), the only logical explanation is she must have recently watched he Adam Sandler/Kevin James movie I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. That movie/disaster might be enough to scare someone into denouncing gay marriage.

But Everhart’s other comments suggest she’s really just a bigot at heart and the fraudulent marriage argument may just be a cover.

“Lord, I’m going to get in trouble over this, but it is not natural for two women or two men to be married,” Everhart said. “If it was natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship.”

Does the butt not count as a sexual relationship? I mean, if Cosmopolitan taught me anything, it’s that a man’s g-spot is his prostate. And there’s only one way to get in there…

Either way, I smell a great GOP presidential candidate for 2016!
