41. I read his statement. Kerry flunked the test.
Kerry should have spoken of equality under the law. Instead he goes on that bullshit and erroneous statement about marriage being a religous thing. He might as well said something as equally stupid as Jesus instituted marriage, like the fundies say.

I can only assume that Kerry does not consider marriage between atheists, or marriages performed by a judge or by a ship's captain. to be legitimate because they lack the religious element.

Kerry has borrowed the language of bigots!
