Alec: Bro's marriage stance is queer

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 4-125Remember back in January when we brought you audio of actor and "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Stephen Baldwin expressing his anti-gay marriage stance to Howard Stern?  If not, here it is again:

Picture 3-105Annoying, right?  Yea, well, fortunately Stephen's charming brother Alec is having none of it.  In the March 25 issue of The Advocate, the "30 Rock" star says of that very incident:

"Well, in the modern political world, people like that -- whether or not I'm related to them -- only help us raise money.  They want to ban gay marriage because those people are incapable of having a biological family -- that's their only argument.  You can ban gay marriage, but if you're going to make it fair, then you have to ban marriage for everybody else who won't produce children.  But they just single out groups of people that they hate."

Amen, A.B.!  Maybe this Thanksgiving you can pull baby bro aside and point out how his antipathy is as misguided as his choice to star in Bio-Dome!

**Note: The online version of the interview is not yet live on The Advocate's site, so we can't provide our usual source link.  In the meantime, here is a scan of the relevant interview portion.

**UPDATE, 3/7: The Advocate interview is now online: Alec Baldwin On Men, Love, & His Bible-Thumping Brother

Your thoughts

I rememer Stephen in '04 with his Bush T-shirt, I was revolted. Plus now he stars in all those cheesy "Left-Behind" type videos. (yes I watch them all. I wish I could say they're getting better.)

I almost recall that he said 9/11 did something to him?

In any event, that audio about how "we don't know his worldview" points toward a true belief in the rapture / left behind type thinking.

I may be taking liberties with him, but they walk among us...

All Americans are born equal, therefore anyone against same sex marriage should move to Cuba or North Korea where no one is equal. The only people that complain against gay marriage are closeted gays who try to make it appear they are less gay. And last the bible makes no mention of gays unless it is a bible rewritten to suit these same closeted gays, both men and women.
