Mullah Dobson explains why the presidential election isn’t nearly as important as Proposition 8:

We’ve picked bad presidents before, and we’ve survived as a nation. But we will not survive if we lose the institution of marriage.

Got that? Gutting the Constitution, breaking the military, crashing the economy, and making the world hate us, no biggie. But letting gays get married, that’s the end of the world. And not in a cool End Times, Rapture, Hello-again-Mr.-Jesus kind of way either.

Better yet, as emptywheel pointed out to me, Prop 8 won’t just stop gays from getting married in California, it’ll nullify all existing gay marriages. Because nothing will preserve the sacred institution of marriage like suddenly dissolving a whole bunch of ‘em.

Mullah Dobson is going to be the most unpleasantly surprised soul in the entire history of the afterlife. I don’t know what will upset him more – that he’s in Hell, or that the only gays there with him are all Republicans.
