The Newest Justification Against Marriage Equality: The Prong Has To Penetrate The Socket

Bill Donohue, that wackster over at the American Catholic League, dissolved into a meltdown of frothing outrage over the passage of same-sex marriage, burping out some nonsense about electrical sockets and prongs.

"'In order to keep the human species alive, it has to be between a man and a woman, right?' Donohue explained. 'I mean, let’s face it. If you want electricity, if you want juice, you can’t have two sockets touch each other or two prongs. The prong has to penetrate the socket.'"

Thanks, Bill. That thoughtful illustration has finally convinced me! I need to power my electronics with vagina! Or something.


  1. Actually, if you want electricity, you need to create a current, usually generated by rotating a magnet inside a wire coil or however solar panels work. The socket just allows for flexibility regarding which electrical devices can be powered.

  2. dammit, I thought I could just use vaginas...
