The guy in this picture is a murderer who is serving life and recently got a marriage license. Presumably, the purpose of this meme is to show that opposition to gay marriage is linked in some way to murderers.
There are several issues with this:
- Most conservatives would allow a person in prison to get married, but in the case of Charles Manson would have executed him soon after his crimes in 1969, removing all of his rights.
- This does not address any of the arguments raised against gay marriage (I’m saying this without expressing an opinion about whether those arguments are right or wrong).
- Conservatives oppose gay marriage, to an extent, because they fear having to be forced to participate or keep their disapproval silent. Again, this does not address that.
