Georgia Republican chairwoman Sue Everhart warned that marriage equality will result in straights pretending to be gay in order to receive health benefits. According to Everhart, it's not about equality; "...it's all about a free ride." Now we know why so many crafty straight people suddenly support gay marriage:
You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” Everhart said. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.
