Lawmaker Compares Same-Sex Marriage Benefits to Subsidizing Pets


Tom Creighton, the Commissioner for Pennsylvania’s Lehigh County, said that giving benefits to same-sex couples is basically the start of a slippery slope that ends in the government sending hookers and blow to your pet dog. WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS.

“The state has a ban on same-sex marriage, so why should the county be offering benefits for same-sex marriage?” Creighton said Wednesday. “I don’t feel the county should be looking for new ways to give away taxpayer money. Next it could be giving money out to people’s pets or whatever. No, it probably won’t go that far.”

He said this in support of his amendment to the Lehigh County budget, which would deny benefits to the same-sex partners of county employees with marriages recognized in other states. Benefits that would most likely cost the county just over 200,000. What a piece of shit this man is.
