Princeton Prof Only American Left Who Still Publicly Hates Gay People

All across America, Vermont’s and Iowa’s decisions to allow same-sex marriage were greeted with applause or indifference or mild grumbling. Vociferous protest there was not. Well, except for this hilarious video from the National Organization for Marriage, a group fronted Princeton professor of jurisprudence (Princeton has a law school?) Robert George:

This $1.5 million video (what production value!) has been mocked across the spectrum since its recent debut. Stephen Colbert got his shots in; Frank Rich referenced it in his last column; there have been YouTube videos since ordered down because the National Organization for Marriage claimed copyright infringement.

    @Anonymous – Oh hi there! I didn’t realize Ivygate had readers from Liberty U. I guess you heard about us after the article on the guy from Brown who wrote that book about you?
    Anyways, feel free to go back home anytime…

    “Man is of nature, and so are his actions. You know what else is? Gay fucking penguins. And gay everything else.”

    Man is of nature, and so are his institutions like marriage. You point out that gay people are more like animals than humans. They are subhuman.

    How is marriage “of nature”? Kind of how the institution of stopping at red lights is also “of nature”. This conversation has taken a turn towards excessively banal, a banality which is painfully lacks delight.

    How is marriage “of nature”? Kind of how the human institution of stopping at red lights is also “of nature”. This conversation has become excessively banal. I’m not that well acquainted with Christian dogma, but I was under the impression that some sort of messiah died for our sins.

    @truebeliever: Doesn’t this martyrdom have us all covered for ‘heaven’. I mean, except for the subhuman ‘homosexuals’ who want to be a part of your ‘human’ institutions.

    @To d10 and C11:

    If you’d read my post closely, you’d have noticed that I did not use the word “hate” once. My issue with posters like The Hope Express is not their ideology–although I disagree with them, they are entitled to a nonviolent point of view–but with the fact that they see this video as a battleground. When, in fact, it’s nothing but a melodramatic piece of crap. If you are against gay marriage, fine, but if you feel that defending this thing is important to your ideology, then you should seriously examining the reasoning behind your beliefs. Because this video lacks even a semblance of reasoned argument.

    The poor quality video aside, Robert George is once of the most brilliant men of our time.

    His stunning success at such a young age DESPITE his rather traditionally conservative positions is a testament to his incredible gifts.

    His work on bio-ethics is visionary. His treatment of constitutional issues is such that he is universally respected despite shunning traditional law school positions.

    His con-law class is notoriously difficult at Princeton.

    Together with John Finnis, he has led a revival of Natural Law jurisprudence.

    Mock the video. But Robbie George is a stud.

      Princeton Professor Robert George is *not* a genius, he isn’t even a competent (or at any rate, an honorable) scholar.  Using his university credentials, and completely without shame, he publishes junk scholarship . . which . . were it not in a field contaminated by outside perceptions of morality . . qua scholarship it would make him and his institution laughing stocks.  If he tried this same crap in physics, or Shakespeare studies, he and his institution would be laughing stocks.  He says, for example in his journal article “What is Marriage?” that every major religion has always recognized 1 man, 1 woman marriage as the only valid form of intimate cohabitation.  Always.  And, he claims that they have always thought that, because marriage is a “natural institution.”  I wonder what etymologists would ask George about the term “natural institution”?  His use of that phrase is simply bullshit propaganda, non-scholarly.  I guess Islam isn’t a major world religion.  I guess that in India, polygamy isn’t legal for Muslims.  I guess that Yemeni Jews don’t consider that the Torah requires polygamy, and I guess that the Talmud doesn’t state that a man may take a maximum of four wives.  I guess, furthermore, that Australia and England and Scotland don’t recognize polygamous unions entered into in jurisdictions where they are legal.   I guess Mormon Fundamentalists don’t consider that their scriptures validate polygamy.  I guess to professor George, Mormonism doesn’t count as a major religion.  And, note the hypocrisy.  George says that when it comes to homosexuality, you have to follow scripture, but when Mormon (or Talmudic) Fundamentalists say that to follow scripture, the must be polygamist, all of a sudden, George isn’t into following scripture.    There’s a big difference between political propaganda and honest scholarship.  What’s more is that George as a writer is a mediocre hack.
