DailyKos: GOP congressman: Same-sex marriage is socialist

Excerpted from this post at DailyKos

Rep. Steve King's (R-IA) latest lunacy, this time claiming that
same-sex marriage is socialism: "They want public affirmation. They
want access to public funds and resources. Eventually all those
resources will be pooled because that's the direction we're going. And
not only is it a radical social idea, it is a purely socialist concept
in the final analysis." Let's tease this out for a moment. First, if
Steve King thinks same-sex marriage is giving homosexuals the same
rights as heterosexuals and he thinks that same-sex marriage is
socialism, that must mean he thinks opposite-sex marriage is also
socialism, right? In other words, marriage is a socialist institution,
and married men and women are the communist menace. But wait, it
doesn't stop there. Because same-sex marriage is illegal in most parts
of the country, the obvious implication of Steve King's comment is
that gays are the only capitalists America has left.
