South Carolina Congressional Candidate Anthony Culler has taken a pretty crappy stance on marriage equality.
Last Tuesday, Culler called same-sex couples “gremlins” seeking to destroy humanity and the institution of marriage in a Facebook post.
From Think Progress:
Anthony Culler, who is challenging Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), set off a firestorm Monday with a Facebook post warning, “If you believe in traditional families and that marriage is defined as an institution between one man and one woman then I ask that you start acting like it and START VOTING like it! Do not buy the “cuteness” and “What will it hurt?” arguments whispered in your ears and marketed to our children. Same-sex couples that seek to destroy our way of life and the institution of marriage are NOT cute and cuddly but rather (for those of you that are old enough to remember the movie), Gremlins that will only destroy our way of life.”
This post comes a day after the Supreme Court rejected five appeals from states to prohibit same-sex marriage. Culler continued to call same-sex couples “gremlins” as he vowed to stand against homosexuality in a lengthy seven-minute Facebook video.
“I made a comment that same-sex couples that want to destroy traditional marriage and our way of life, they’re gremlins,” he explained. “They’re these creatures that are so destructive.
“No matter how many gremlins there are across this country, we here in the sixth district will stand against it,” he vowed.
Same-sex marriage has been postponed in South Carolina until a federal judge is officially bound to follow the Virginia precedent. As for Culler, he is currently trailing Clyburn in the elections and is a pretty messed up person to equate actual humans to movie characters because he doesn’t like who they love.
We’re just saying. Watch the bizarre video here.
