SALT LAKE CITY -- What do ducks have to do with same-sex marriage?

A political activist in the Salt Lake area says they are the perfect animal to advocate for the cause, and he has taken to wearing a duck suit while rallying in support of same-sex marriage in the state. The man was at Sugar House Park Saturday to spread his message.

See the video above for David Granato's comments on his unique brand of activism. Granato said he isn't gay but has friends and family who are. He said he has received everything from death threats to support while carrying his sign.

      “Mallards form pairs only until the female lays eggs around the beginning of spring, at which time she is left by the male who joins up with other males…”

      Try Disneyland, Donald.

        And you wont see the males mating. It is natural to mate with a female duck but that doesn’t mean the male are practicing with other male.

        Rich, you realize that some animal species do practice homosexuality. You’re argument is invalid, just like your false story book driven, hate-filled religion. Go pray some more to the magic spaghetti monster…

  • Eric Cartman

    Homosexuality is found in nature, so people sayings it’s “un-natural” are incorrect. Christians should be used to being wrong be now though… Science and proved the bible to be nothing more than a fictional story book written by humans 2000 years ago… Evolve people!

    • Cartman

      “Proved”? I’m an atheist, and even I think you’re a dim bulb. No one has “proven” any such thing.

    • Alma Gordon

      Your statement that homosexuality is found in nature is certainly true. But so is Murder, Infanticide and Cannibalism. Just because it’s natural, doesn’t mean that it is good.

      • Mickey

        Eating the rotting bodies of family members is “natural.”
        I don’t really care who does what to whom in bed, but to use the government to force society to sanction personal choices is pretty sick. You can do as you please, but nobody owes you a “hurrah.”

    Without a single exception every duck on the planet was hatched by a female duck who mated with a drake. Anybody ever see a drake sitting on his eggs? No, I didn’t think so.

  • Eric Cartman

    Silly Christians and their bigot views of the world… Glad to see people are dim enough to use s fictional story book to base of their morals on… Evolve people…

    • Bob

      Families busy taking their children to school play, baseball games, and soccer practices have no desire to give up what they have and “evolve”. When you have the real thing Eric you have no need or reason to select a poor substitute.

  • Bob

    Hard to visualize the guy in the duck costume going to his wife and children after a long day at the pond. Kind of hard to take him seriously. And they call Christians silly?
