Building on the “thirty-sexual orientations” lie, Pat Robertson last month asked his “700 Club” audience if passage of the Hate Crimes Prevention Act would protect people having sex with ducks. Garfunkel and Oates has the answer:

This is so delightful. I just love the way these two have made fun of the silliness that issues from the likes of Robertson et al.

Pat must have viewed the old movie “Howard the Duck” one too many times. Great video answer to his inane babblings!

Super! Statements like Rev. Robertson’s are so outlandish as to demand responses like this wonderfully delightful and poignant video! Thank you for sharing this!

This doesn’t make any sense!

How can a sane, logical individual even begin to debate someone that’s taken the position that granting civil marriage to a same gender couple is on the same legal footing as someone wishing to engage in sexual intercourse with an animal? And not even a mammal, at that!

Is this some sort of purposeful ruse to derail the entire debate?

Should anyone even attempt to address such absurdity without risking our real arguments for marriage equality to be totally disregarded?

Yes, I thought this video was great and funny, but how does this help our cause by actually engaging our opponent by addressing their ludicrous position?

“how does this help our cause”

Sometimes mockery is the best defense.
