Michael BrownLast week, TV host Stephen Colbert took aim at those who oppose same-sex "marriage" and believe that it will open the door to all kinds of other "marital" arrangements.

To the delight of his TV audience, and utilizing his comedic gifts, he mocked Rep. Steve King and Dr. Ben Carson before getting to the heart of his presentation: Stephen Colbert’s All-Inclusive Wedding Cake Toppers.

What makes this so ironic, though, is that the very arguments he raised actually prove that the slippery slope argument is true.

Watch our nine-minute video below, where I have some fun with Stephen Colbert and thank him for proving our point.
