No longer as truthful as should be deserved, some names, places and events deliberately vague to protect identities that aren't mine

This guy argues worse than me

Epic fail here on a part of the adverse witness.  Boies is counsel for the plaintiffs,  Tam was originally a defence counsel, but dropped out, but has been called back by the plaintiffs as a witness.  Boies takes a few short exchanges to pretty much destroy him.  This is after the courtroom has become deathly silent, after Tam has testified that he believes homosexuality leads to paedophilia and the gay agenda is legalize same-sex marriages, then prostitution, then sex with children.

"T: Homosexuals are not minority.

B: How many are there?

T: I am a minority. Minority is based on skin color.

B: How many are there?

T: 2-4% of population.

B: So they are a minority?

T: yes."

Okay so I know this Tam guy is an idiot, but even still, reading the things that he's saying under oath in a court of law, rather than ranting in some book or at some evangelical convention, is pretty harrowing:
"B: ...if same sex marriage passes it will lead to incest, pedophilia and polygamy. Do you agree with that?

T: Yes."

"B: Your paper says that after Netherlands legalized SS marriage, Netheralands legalized incest and polygamy. Do you believe that?

T: Same sex marriage may not have led to legalization of incest and polygamy, but it happened.

B: Who told you that?

T: I found it on the Internet.."

Thankfully, Boies shows him up again:

"T: I believe if marriage is beyond a man and a woman that any person can come to ask for marriage for incest and polygamy. If this is a civil right what would stop anyone from using marriage.

B: Can two siblings become DPs? Can man and girl of young age become DP?

T: No.

B: DPs exclude people of certain age and relationship.

T: Right.

B: You know that?

T: Yes.

B: So you see that DP does not lead to incest.

T: Yes. Oh I see your logic.

B: Yeah, logic."
