Scare Quotes for Straight People

Interesting to see anti-gay groups using scare quotes around the word “weddings” when talking about the Grammys (Joe. My. God. has a good example here). A lot of the couples married on stage were straight. Did their weddings not count? Why scare quotes for them? Is it because they were on stage at the same time? If so, can someone tell us the minimum distance a wedding must be from a “wedding” in order to qualify as real. Seriously religious right, these rules aren’t just going to write themselves. We need answers!
