From the November 16, 2022 edition of The Daily Wire’s The Ben Shapiro Show
BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): What’s really amazing to me is that it’s now, apparently, the law of the land and the rule of society that the only justification you could have for saying a marriage is between a man and a woman it is because you are a Christian, or a Jew, or a Muslim. That’s really the only reason at all. That’s the only reason – we will allow you to have these crazy beliefs as long as you can show that they are crazy beliefs. As long as you can show that the reason you believe a marriage is between a man and a woman is because you read it in a book, and because you really believe the book – they keep saying a belief sincere nun. I don’t even know how you measure sincere religious belief. Shall we, for example, now monitor how often you go to church or synagogue, or whether you remain kosher, or whether you take communion in order to determine your sincerity –
I mean, the same media that declares Nancy Pelosi to be a sincere believer who is right for the mass abortion of unborn children, will then declare that you, Matt Walsh, are not actively in favor of the things that you are for. in favor, you’re just a religious bigot. You are a bigot, aren’t you? And your religion is a cover for your fanaticism.
I am very annoyed by the constant derogation of non-religious arguments from religious arguments. That’s what the left likes to do. They like to say you’re pro-life, the reason you’re pro-life is because of your crazy religion. And so, maybe we can respect your crazy religion — that’s not the marriage argument.
The marriage argument literally has nothing to do with religion. You could be a visitor from Mars and you could see that all human procreation is based on man, woman, child. It’s not a particularly difficult thing.
