Blogging lawyer Jeremy Sear examines beauty contestant Carrie Prejean's opinions on gay marriage, concluding her impromptu statement was far more than merely politically incorrect:
Let’s be clear here: what she said on that podium was just as oppressive and nasty as if she’d stood up and declared that “marriage is between a man and a woman of the same race”. Or stood up in defence of “traditional slavery”.
Really? Prejean's opinions are as "oppressive and nasty " as defending slavery? Let's take a look at what she said:
Well I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one way or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. You know what, in my country, in my family, I do believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, no offense to anybody out there. But that’s how I was raised and I believe that it should be between a man and a woman.
Prejean doesn't oppose same-sex marriage, on the contrary, thinking it "great". She is not an advocate of gay marriage, however, viewing marriage as the union of a man and a woman; her view reflecting the traditional definition of marriage:
The legal union of a man and woman as husband and wife.
The issues having become muddled in Jeremy's normally razor-sharp analytical lawyer brain, he deems anyone not sharing his views -- Obama included -- to be bigots of the nastiest kind. In reality Jeremy's the bigot as shown by his refusal to recognise the validity of those not sharing his view. It's no surprise then that Crikey -- his current employer-- once chacterised Jeremy as the most extreme of Australia's left-wing bloggers. It's difficult to know how indicative of his thinking his blog post really are; for a pro-blogger like Jeremy -- and for his employer -- attention seeking through confected controversy is a source of income.

Carlos, you couldn't have declared your low-brow, vulgar ignorance any better. Well done for flying your 'dullard-flag' high.

A content-free profanity-laden spit, ending with the oh-so-cute "teh webs."

I'm guessing friend Carlos is a Leftard?

One has to be a true idiot to bring race into the marriage issue. It has nothing do to with it.

Defending marriage is the same as defending slavery? Jezz doesn't want to abolish slavery, but extend it. Wow. This guy defends people in court???

Sear's a lonely bore. His writing confirms he knows it. Must be lonely being Sears and knowing it. Maybe he thinks we're all his friends, and it's us who have the problem accepting it.
