As many of you noted, Ken Hutcherson doesn't always give the most coherent testimony.
So. Did anything more compelling come out of the mouths of gay marriage opponents at yesterday's hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee?
Hit play and you'll get it all, eventually. But just in case you don't have time to sit through every last bit of the post-Hutch testimony, I've condensed the "best" arguments for you right here:
John Geis of the Family Policy Institute of Washington: "Before you tear down a fence, you should have an understanding of why it was put up.”
Kennon Forester, citizen and farmer: “In farmers' terms, when we put two bulls in a pen we don’t get a calf.”
Allison Vance, 13, who said she'd decided to testify on her own, but would be reading testimony “partly written" by her father: “In order to walk properly, you must wear one left shoe and one right shoe." (Trying to make a same-sex family work, Vance said, is "like trying to walk with two left shoes.”)
Jennifer Morris, citizen: “Today my main message is that specific tools are for specific purposes… If you were going to build a skyscraper, you would not be putting bolts with bolts and nuts with nuts, because the structure wouldn’t go up. And if it did it would probably fall apart, probably destroying many lives… I feel very demeaned by the fact that roles don’t seem to matter."
