New Mexico GOP Politician To The Gays: 'Stop Whoring Around And Marry A Woman'

A New Mexico Republican politician's message to gays?

Stop whoring around and marry a woman. 

Cool. We'll get right on that.

New Mexico state Senator William Sharer writes on his personal website:

"Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) married a Bactrian woman – modern day Afghanistan. Alexander may have engaged in homosexual activity, but he married a woman. He directed his officers to stop 'whoring' around and find a local woman to marry. WHY? BECAUSE. 'It is only through blood relations that hatred and war will end.' In other words, Alexander the Great thought that marriage was about creating and raising the next generation. This is the reason for Marriage."

Sharer is one of two dozen New Mexico lawmakers that have filed suit to stop same-sex marriage in the state. 

Sharer also reached out  to Talking Points Memo, defending his post:

Sharer stressed to TPM on Wednesday that while he opposes defining gay marriage as anything other than between one man and one woman, he does not harbor any animosity toward gay couples and used the Alexander reference to argue his point that marriage should remain between a man and a woman.

Marriage, Sharer argues, helps society avoid “violence and poverty.”

“If we wanted to purposefully establish a culture of poverty and violence we would work to arrange for most children to be born to single teenage mothers with little or no family support. — Oh wait, that is exactly what we have done,” Sharer writes.

What do you think of state Sen. Sharer's "history lesson," Instincters?

And since Alexander's time, marriage and family have done so well at preventing violence and alleviating poverty...

Oh, I'm most certain Alexander whored around even after marriage.  Some people think they know everything just to prove something even remotely true.

He wants to deny gay couples legal equality, which means he is harboring extreme animosity against them.

And what woman would I marry?  Any woman?  Any woman who will have me?  Any woman you choose for me?  Any woman who wants to live a lie and be lied to daily?  Any woman who wants to 'cure' me?  No, I have more respect for women than that, thank youl.
