Your inane statements of the day

They can be found in this article about the domestic partner law in Washington. First up is Sharon Park, executive director of the Washington State Catholic Conference:
"It's not a civil rights issue; it's an issue of legalizing gay marriage," she said.

I guess gay people don't have civil rights?

Next up is from state legislator Dan Kristiansen:
Rep. Dan Kristiansen, R-Snohomish, said he also thinks marriage must remain a union between a man and a woman. "It's moving more definitions of marriage into domestic partnerships, so what's the point? Personally, I see this as giving same-sex couples special rights."

I wonder if anyone asked him what right same-sex couples would get, or are even asking for, that opposite-sex couples do not already enjoy.
