We still haven't rid ourselves of the welcome case of the vapors that Parks & Recreation's Nick Offerman and gaydored legend Megan Mullally inflicted upon us with their "Americans for Marriage Equality" video. Just as we're finally able to come up for air, Nick has to go and make us gush again by telling MSNBC hottie Thomas Roberts that right wing homophobes are "engaging in a war on love."
"In the entertainment industry we have lots of friends and loved ones that are directly affected by this problem," Nick tells the MSNBC host. "They're in marriages. We've known them our whole lives. They just would like them to be called such. Their marriages already exist. they're loving committed couples."
Thomas goes on to ask Nick what message he would have for anti-gay legislators. "I have a hard time not being emotional about it," he responds. "My message [to anti-gay legislators] would be a firm slap to the cheek. If I had to be a more tempered about it I would say it just makes common sense. Those marriages are part of the team. These people just want to be a loving family. It's not only the marriages we need to focus on but these people have children. Those children are also being denied rights that are afforded [air quotes] normal marriages. [air quotes]"
"It's almost like they're engaging in a war on love. These two people want to get together and build a loving life and be supportive members of society."
