Michael Reagan's Remarks Lead To Cancelation At Rape Crisis Event
After comparing gay marriage to bestiality and other horrors, Republican strategist Michael Reagan was canceled as the guest speaker at an upcoming Cleveland Rape Crisis Center luncheon.
Reagan (the adopted son of Ronald Reagan) had written that gay marriage "is a slippery slope leading to other alternative relationships and the unconstitutionality of any law based on morality. Think about polygamy, bestiality, and perhaps maybe murder."
Reagan has spoken out of behalf of the victims of sexual violence, so the organizers of the event were reluctant to have to cancel him, yet felt it was the right thing to do.
And I guess he loses out on a free lunch.
