As Australians vote in a non-binding referendum on marriage equality, right-wing gadfly Milo Yiannopoulos has come out against same-sex marriage rights, and he's citing religious freedom as his excuse.
Did I mention he recently married a man himself?
No low to which this horrendous person will not sink ...
Yiannopoulos, who wed his secret, longtime partner John in Hawaii in September, told the UK's right-wing-slanted Daily Mail of Australian marriage equality:
My instinct would be to vote against it… the paramount consideration is not those gay couples — it is religious freedoms. I’m gay and a Catholic. The highest priority for me is making sure no church, no believer anywhere, is required to violate their religious conscience. My gut would be to vote against it.
His partner is not only black but also a Muslim, both of which — along with the gay thing! — fly in the face of Yiannopoulos's many racist and Islamophobic and anti-gay positions. He's also against the demasculinization of men. Not sure what that really means, but it should mean he can't wear pearls while taking that stance.
How do you raise a human being to be this fucked up?
