Chuckin' with equality

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 3-160LA Times writer Sandy Banks was at one of the 170 churches that aired Sunday evening's "Protect Marriage" simulcast. Here is but one of her observations:

"The loudest applause came when action hero Chuck Norris appeared by video: 'I'm angry that four judges overturned the will of the people.' He lauded Proposition 8 for 'maintaining the union between man and woman' and promoted his book, 'Black Belt Patriotism,' featuring a photo of him clad in marital arts gear."

So let's see here: Martial arts = YAY! But the art of marital equality? PURE EVIL! How is that for logic?

But let's not think about the "I'm a fighter, not a lover" mentality for now. For now, let's remember the one positive contribution that Mr. Norris has given to the gay community:

We know certainly some gay boys for whom this torso has helped to "maintain the union between hand and genitalia"! Thanks, Chuck!

Go read all of Ms. Banks' eye-opening commentary:

Mr. Total Gym himself! Everybody is someone's whore. It is exceptionally pathetic that the one of the reasons that he took the gig was to turn it into an infomercial.
