‘Gay-mageddon’: Colbert Warns Gay Marriage Will Lead America To Be ‘Lost In A Sea Of Hedonism’
“Gay-mageddon” is upon us, Stephen Colbert informed on Tuesday night. “The gay swarm has descended on the Supreme Court.” In light of the court taking on the Prop 8 and Defense of Marriage Act cases, Colbert tackled the issue from a cultural angle — as well as the impeccable logic of one particular politician.
“Folks, if we lose either of these two cases,” Colbert warned, America will be “lost in a sea of hedonism.” Which isn’t to say it hasn’t already begun, he argued, pointing to the polling showing significant support for gay marriage. “What’s the hurry, gays?” he asked.
The “terrifying decay of public morals” (when the founders wrote the constitution “homosexuals weren’t even invented yet”) led Colbert to one man who simply isn’t falling for it. In “The Word’s” segment on “narcicitizenship,” we got a closer look at Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) who, asked about gay marriage, offered the gem of a response, “I’m not gay, so I’m not going to marry one.”
