Towleroad reports that our esteemed Governor Tom Corbett compared gay marriage to incest this morning on a TV interview broadcast by WHP-TV in Harrisburg. When questioned about the comment he made earlier this summer comparing gay and lesbian couples to children, he replied that he thinks “a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don’t you?”

    It is hard to imagine that the people of PA will probably reelect this moron.

    It’s easy to imagine. It’s hard to understand.

    This guy is an absolute joke…from wanting fracking and playing up to the corporations to his anti-gay statements. Please dont let this evil jackass win another term. I’m a hetro up here in North Jersey originally from Philly so I cant vote against him, but I’ll be pulling for the opposition.

    Someone in Pennsylvania please tell this man that he is wrong. By his logic, straight men would marry their mothers or sisters, and gay men would marry their fathers or brothers. Really? This is one of the oldest misguided excuses for homophobia. But it doesn’t work.
