Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has thrown his support behind gay marriage in the U.S. in a new article written for Politico.com.
Hefner insists that the battle to legalize the same sex unions is a fight for human rights, and is urging politicians not to “infringe” on the freedom of citizens of the USA.
In the article, Hef writes; “The fight for gay marriage is, in reality, a fight for all of our rights. Without it, we will turn back the sexual revolution and return to an earlier, puritanical time. Today, in every instance of sexual rights falling under attack, you’ll find legislation forced into place by people who practice discrimination disguised as religious freedom.”
“Their goal is to dehumanize everyone’s sexuality and reduce us to using sex for the sole purpose of perpetuating our species. To that end, they will criminalize your entire sex life…”
“This is a religious nation, but it is also a secular one. No one should have to subjugate their religious freedom, and no one should have their personal freedoms infringed. This is America and we must protect the rights of all Americans.”
