It seems like we can’t go more than a couple weeks without someone on the UFC roster tweeting something guaranteed to tick off a portion of the populace. Last time it was Nate Diaz, who double downed with it. Now is the man who stopped him at the last UFC on Fox show, Josh “The Punk” Thomson, who decided to opine on the issue of gay marriage. And Pat Miletich chimed in, as well, proving that generating controversy isn’t just limited to UFC employees.
Should you be allowed to marry whoever you want? Before you answer that, should u be allowed to have more than 1 wife?
— Josh Thomson (@THEREALPUNK) June 11, 2013
Thomson, after some vigorous debate, went even further.
on his Facebook, stating:
My next question is, should siblings be allowed to marry siblings? My point is, where do you draw the line? I personally don’t care who you marry but I also am smart enough to know that it opens a gateway to men/women trying to marry young kids, siblings marrying eachother and people having multiple husbands an wives. You have to think all of these things are okay otherwise your stopping them from being happy as well which is hypocrisy. Equality doesn’t stop with gay marriage, it just starts with it.
He continued, as well, opining on interracial marriage too.
Blacks an whites getting married is nothing like this. So your okay with R. Kelly trying To marry lil girls? People trying to marry their brother or sister? Animals? Etc? Those people want the same exact thing, to be happy. Are you gonna tell them no?
Miletich, who posted this of Facebook and eventually deleted it:
Josh is spot on. It may seem extreme to use some of his examples of ‘where does it end’ but I guarantee someone will want to marry their 1st cousin or even sibling. At what point does lack of civil liberty put this nation at risk? It’s already happened and will only get worse.
