“Do same-sex couples really just want the right to marry that’s afforded to all heterosexual couples, or do they have a more sinister agenda in mind?” Jon Stewart asks at the start of last night’s segment on Texas’ first same-sex divorce case. The segment ends with a straight married couple making out with another woman, and correspondent Jason Jones trying to get in on it. “This is marriage to me,” Jones says. “This is the sanctity of marriage to me. We can’t let gays have all this. No way. They haven’t earned it.” There’s plenty of good stuff in between, including interviews with Dallas attorney Peter Schulte and his client, “J.B.,” as well as East Texas pastor Rick Scarborough, who’s asked whether he’s concerned that “gays are trying to shove their long, thick agenda down your throat repeatedly.” Ultimately Jones concludes that if gays are allowed to divorce, nothing will stop them from the grand abuses of marriage that heterosexuals enjoy, such as furtive gay airport sex. He also says God intended man and woman to be stuck in a loveless union, not gays. Check it out.
