Pat Buchanan, like Rick Warren, enjoys comparing homosexuality to nonequivalent things. Warren lumped same-sex marriages in with pedophilic marriages (?) and compared being gay with a lack of self control. But as for Buchanan — the very serious “grampa” figure on MSNBC — in 2004 he said, “[H]omosexuality is an affliction, like alcoholism.”
Wanna know one of the many, many differences, Pat? First, homosexuality isn’t an affliction. But also, alcoholics can get married and divorced as many times as they want.
