Logical conclusion of marriage inequality arguments

Inspired by Rhode Island Gov. Don Carcieri’s veto of a bill that would allow domestic partners to make funeral and burial plans for their partners, Stephen Colbert takes marriage equality opposition to its logical conclusion:

It might be time to bar gays from having funerals. … I am in favor of civil end-of-life ceremonies. … We shouldn’t have to watch these people flaunt their alternative ‘death style.’ … If gay couples are going to die in accordance with their present legal standing, they need to be dead the same way we want them to live: Invisibly.
