Bill O’Reilly Endorses Our Site

Timothy Kincaid

May 12th, 2009

Well not really.

But in a debate over marriage equality with Fox News analyst Margaret Hoover, Bill found himself drawn to an argument similar to that which led to the selection of the name of this site.

HOOVER: I don’t buy into the slippery slope argument at all.

O’REILLY: You’d let everybody do whatever they want?

HOOVER: That’s the slippery slope argument. That’s if you allow one thing to happen, then another thing, and another thing.

O’REILLY: Hoover, you would let everybody get married who want to get married. You want to marry a turtle, you can.

For some unknown reason anti-gays just can’t fathom that the union of two people based on shared values, commitment to mutual care, and a deep and abiding love is not the equivalent to a little turtle lovin’.
