Treason in Defense of Bigotry

Brought to you by Orson Scott Card.
Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.

Biological imperatives trump laws. American government cannot fight against marriage and hope to endure. If the Constitution is defined in such a way as to destroy the privileged position of marriage, it is that insane Constitution, not marriage, that will die.
Remind me again how it is that liberals are the traitors?

Meanwhile, society in Massachusetts, California, Canada, and everywhere else where same-sex marriage is legal casually continues to refuse to fall apart.

Update: Not a lawyer, but:
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so;


Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
Just sayin'.

[Just to be clear, Card stops one short of saying that he advocates the overthrow of the government himself. He uses one of the classic weasel techniques, attributing the above sentiments, which are clearly in line with his own, to a generalized group, in this case "married people." It's textbook protection-racket talk.]
