Of course the event that I am referring to is the Rose Parade. Two men are getting married atop a giant wedding cake on the AIDS Healthcare Foundation float when it stops at the reviewing stand. The ceremony will be officiated by a Protestant Minister.
Last night the mullahs at American Family Association had their little shit fit over innocent children being exposed to the gay. The Washington Post reported that Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage issued a statement saying that children
watching Wednesday’s parade “will be exposed to the spectacle of men
‘marrying’ men with the attendant public hugging and kissing.”
And …? Imagine that. Children exposed to the joy and good will of people hugging and kissing. Oh my! That night, as the kids sleep, the gay sprites will emulate Liza and Cher singing a duet and, sure as hell, the children will wake up gay.
Brown would prefer that those same kids be exposed to his church’s stream of hate and fear. Better to expose those youngsters to priests who expose themselves.
“We urge Americans to demand that their political leaders change the
legal channel to make sure true marriage is protected and preserved,” he
Really? That ship has sailed and equality is in the courts. If a Republican judge in Utah can effect equality then no state will embrace marriage discrimination for long. I suspect that another six or seven states could be added to the equality roster in 2014 and there is absolutely nothing that Mr. Brown can do about it.
