Phyllis Schlafly: Rick Perry Out to Undermine Traditional Marriage

In her latest column, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly argues that Rick Perry’s 20 percent flat tax plan is, like gay marriage, “anti-family” since it would “eliminate all tax advantages for married couples in which one spouse is the primary breadwinner.”

Schlafly, unimpressed by the Perry campaign’s insistence that the plan protects the middle class, responds with my favorite line: “Regardless of income, you can’t be middle class without respecting middle-class values, the most important of which is marriage.”

So, I guess by definition, gays can’t be middle class.
