When blowing smoke up society's arse, things sometimes get Wendy

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 7-115Are you a gay person who has found love and who is ready to pledge a life commitment to your partner? Well while your friends and family may respond to your wedded ambition by adorning you with gifts, well-wishes, and drunken displays of their chicken dancing skills, the Concerned Women For America's Wendy Wright has another present for you. She is instead offering you the advice that you are broken and need to be healed by God. You did register for that, right?

This from last night's edition of "CBN News Watch":


(If audio doesn't load for you, you can listen to it here)

Well, Wendy is right about one thing: Judges needing to follow the constitution. We can totally get down with that gavel-based concept!

Everything else she had to say, however? Well we're not sure which is more annoying: the short-sightedness, the arrogance, or the attempt to foist personal faith views onto the whole of society. But then again, why choose? Deciding the most head-shakingly tiresome religious right anti-gay argument is like choosing your favorite child (to indoctrinate with your vile gayness)!

Your thoughts

I know this isn't a real point or argument, but seriously, when my first impression when I saw that picture was that it was a guy in drag, but then I read the post.

When L'Ailee and I got married, we came home from our honeymoon to find a book about leaving the lesbian lifestyle--I believe it was by Anne Paulk--in the mail, courtesy of an aunt who "couldn't support this" by showing up.

A girl cousin of mine and a boy cousin of hers met at our wedding and fell in love. They had a wedding of their own last year. Another cousin told me that this "redeemed" what we did and that there was still hope for us to "know their joy."

All this is to say, I hope to every God who has ever known human worship that Wendy Wright does not have any actual-factual LGBT relatives. They don't need her nonsense. I'm sure she could come up with worse than even my relatives did.

PS--your affiliate ad under this post urges people to find their Mikasa (china) pattern. :-)
