It’s Always Projection

After Ross Douthat’s panty-bunching the other day about gay marriage (specifically that the mean gays are going to turn good ole American heterosexuals into the equivalent of white southern racists), along comes another textbook example of the endless self-pity and projection that fuels the religious right in this country. Here’s Jim DeMint (R-SC) of the Heritage Foundation on gay marriage: “He is denying dignity to the millions of Americans who, for moral or religious reasons, believe that gay marriage is wrong.”

Catch that? Granting homosexuals the right to marry denies dignity to . . . heterosexuals. Luckily, Rachel Maddow is on hand to administer the smackdown, though she focuses on the second half of his spurious comment, that gay marriage is bad for children.
