Playboy head honcho Hugh Hefner has no qualms with people of the same sex tying the knot. I guess for someone who was looking to marry a woman 60 years younger, I would imagine it would be weird for him to come out against something that backs traditional marriage.
He wrote an article expressing his views for Politico. He said that the fight for marriage equality is a fight for human rights and he doesn’t want politicians to infringe on the freedom of the country’s citizens.
He said, “The fight for gay marriage is, in reality, a fight for all of our rights. Without it, we will turn back the sexual revolution and return to an earlier, puritanical time. Today, in every instance of sexual rights falling under attack, you’ll find legislation forced into place by people who practice discrimination disguised as religious freedom. Their goal is to dehumanize everyone’s sexuality and reduce us to using sex for the sole purpose of perpetuating our species. To that end, they will criminalize your entire sex life.”
He went on to say, “This is a religious nation, but it is also a secular one. No one should have to subjugate their religious freedom, and no one should have their personal freedoms infringed. This is America and we must protect the rights of all Americans.”
What do you have to say about his comments on marriage equality?
