David Jones in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass

Sometimes it’s hard to argue with gay marriage opponents because their logic, if so it may be called, is simply incomprehensible. An outstanding example from the recent months is the approach of David Jones, the Secretary of State for Wales. According to the BBC, he told the ITV “I regard marriage as an institution […] for the provision of a warm and safe environment for the upbringing of children, which is clearly something that two same-sex partners can’t do.” That would be a legitimate opinion, if the programme wasn’t followed by his statement “I did not say in the interview that same-sex partners should not adopt children and that is not my view.” In other words, Mr Hatter Jones has no problem with a gay couple bringing children up in an unsafe environment, as long as their union isn’t called a “marriage”. Go figure.
