This time, Fox invokes incest and bigamy to defend a Nevada marriage ban. In an amicus brief Fox signed with eleven other hard right state attorneys general, there is section entitled “Marriage Defined” which explains “what marriage is” and “what marriage is not.” There Fox admonishes the court that being married is not for same-sex couples, nor is it for those engaging in bigamy or incest.
The attorney general for the state of Montana also believes that letting people get married will lead to the “tragic deconstruction” of marriage. That’s like saying letting people start a business will lead to the tragic destruction of the business community.
We all know that the GOP has become a party of radicals. It is now a badge of honor to bellow idiotic statements denigrating women, science, or anyone who doesn’t have health care like service industry staff and construction workers. The more Tim Fox does, the more we know that he wears this badge with pride.
Meanwhile, polls show that a majority of Americans back marriage equality in all 50 states.
