Two Ring Circus: The Gayest Show on Earth

by Jeremy Hooper

  Regarding the possibility that gay marriage could be legalized in Washington as soon as today and proclamations from the state's LGBT activists that, if allowed, they hope to start hitching couples ASAP, Focus on the Family's Glenn Stanton (pic.) says,

"Just like we saw in San Francisco with many, many people rushing to the altar, and in some ways — large ways — making just a circus out of the event," ... "People saw what this was all about. It wasn't about taking marriage seriously. It was more of a circus atmosphere."

Which is totally ridiculous, as we watched all of the San Francisco couples get hitched in '04, and nary an elephant did we see. Ring masters, couples jumping through hoops just to have their relationship legally recognized, and a lions den of protesters telling them they were going to hell, maybe, but no clowns or acrobats were anywhere in sight. What kind of a circus doesn't have clowns? A non-circus, that's what kind.

Now Washington Supreme Court -- please hurry up and legalize queer nuptials, as these stilts are absolutely killing our feet!
