Jon Stewart Eats Texan "Hate Cake" and Mocks Gay Marriage Opponents (Video)
"It's so good. It tastes like moldy Bibles and the tears of the decent."
Jon Stewart criticized states like Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas for their treatment of gay marriage in a segment on Monday. He mockingly ate Texan "hate cake" at his desk, showing a news clip of conservative legislators eating wedding cake symbolizing the 10-year anniversary of the state's same-sex marriage ban.
"This is the best hate cake I ever had," said Stewart. "It's so good. It tastes like moldy Bibles and the tears of the decent."
In the clip, Stewart labeled Oklahoma "Oklahomophobia" and teased Arkansas for pushing back against anti-discrimination laws for LGBT people, pointing out that even Walmart was upset with Arkansas. “Here’s a clue,” Stewart said, “that you might be on the wrong side of history — when even the company that had to be convinced not to lock up their Mexicans in their stores overnight thinks you're out there."
"Eighteen states have passed or proposed religious freedom laws to protect the real victims of discrimination: Christian florists," said Stewart in another part of the segment. "C'mon backlash — you can do better."
