ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Legalizing same-sex marriage will pave the way for future generations to be able to marry artificial, android life forms, according to Maryland conservative and traditional marriage defender Robert Broadus.
Delivering testimony last week in opposition to Senate Bill 116 — which would allow for same-sex marriage — Broadus, a conservative Republican and Tea-party candidate in last year’s race for Maryland’s 4th Congressional district, noted that marriage is based on the idea that “individuals of the same species can reproduce.”
“This is why … people don’t marry with non-humans,” he said. “But also if you pass this bill you will set the groundwork that one day when artificial intelligence is that advanced, we will be considering whether or not people can marry their androids.”
