Video: 700 Clubs, all of them for bashing gays

by Jeremy Hooper

My wedding day was the happiest day of my life. But what can I say? I've been dreaming of destroying marriage since I was just a tot:


Robertson: "I don't really believe homosexuals want to get married," they just want to "destroy marriage" [MM]
(H/t: Joe.My.God & Matt Algren)

Yes, Kristi, we agree: Christians need to stand up and say they're offended. Offended that people like Pat Robertson have been viciously hijacking faith in America for the better part of four decades, using the idea of Christianity as a weapon against certain human beings!

Now if you'll excuse me, I must go stand outside the local marriage licensing office, allowing the hot sun to reflect off my wedding ring so that I can then direct it to burn up every heterosexual couple's marriage license as soon as they step out the door. BWA HAA HAA HAA HAA HAA HAA!

Your thoughts

Wasn't there a point in time where marriage was simply a contract between two families, and was not done because of love or religion? Hasn't Marriage changed a lot since then?

If anyone is destroying marriage, it is religious zealots like these two. What right do they have to judge what is or isn't a proper marriage? What right do they have to tell us our reasons for wanting to marry?

Disgusting. Glad it looks like Robertson won't be alive much longer. Another 5 or 10 years and he'll hopefully be too incontinent to be able to do these silly little things.

BTW, Kristi is recently divorced.

Just sayin'.

Matt, normally when learning about something like that, I'd say "It's so delicious it's better than sex!". But frankly, it's not in this case. Religious zealots like them do this all the time, and love to pick and choose which of their dogmatic laws they wish to follow. Condemning homosexuals is ok. But they'll ignore the bits about eating shell fish, wearing clothing made of mixed textiles, and that little bit about divorce or inter-racial marriages.

It's ok to be a sinner, as long as you aren't a homosexual. /rollseyes

These ruthless truthless Christians need to stand up and proudly admit they are bigots, instead of acting all offended when confronted with reality. These people are particularly adept at characterizing things as the opposite of what they are: "It's not bigotry, we are just standing up for moral values. We don't hate you, we oppose homosexuality because we love you. We are not attacking homosexuals, we are just protecting traditional marriage." The only things they love are the fraud and lies that help promote their delusions.

I just loved offending Christians and other bigots. For example, RI Governor Don "The Asshole" Carcieri says he's aggravated that people equate marriage as a civil right.

I'm working on a plan to aggravate him so much that his fucking head explodes.

HOW THE FUCK DO YOU DESTROY SOMETHING BY EXTENDING IT TO A LARGER PORTION OF THE POPULATION?????????

I MEAN GOD DAMN

IT'S LIKE TRYING TO DESTROY THE AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY BY OPENING A CAR LOT!

Yeah, my wife and I hate marriage so much we did it twice, once 5 years ago and once last year, close to our anniversary, to make it legal again after we were forcibly legally divorced by judges along with other out-of-state couples who went to MassVegas. (The judges, of course, did a good thing for marriage there.) This is also why I cried a little when I realized that I couldn't fulfill my young-girl dream of having my wedding in the infield of the Daytona International Speedway right before the Daytona 500 (which always occurs close to Valentine's Day). Well, we could've done it, but it wouldn't have been legal. Like you, Jeremy, I just hated and despised marriage from childhood.

And then, you know, there's the fact that my female cousin and my male cousin met at our first wedding and are now married themselves. We encouraged them every step of the way. They had us as co-matrons of honor at their own wedding, and we endured judgemental nonsense from other relatives and wore dresses we wanted to burn later for her. Because, you know, we thought all this would be an excellent way to help destroy marriage.

@ Tyler: Now that last sentence presents an image I don't want to contemplate, but I do kinda hope it's a gay male home health aide, perhaps a nice atheist or Pagan boy, who is tasked with changing Robertson's diapers and/or catheters.

Please, Pat, just tell me how extending marriage rights to same-sex couples has any effect on mixed-sex couples. Good lord, I am so tired of these people trotting out the rhetoric about "protecting" marriage and then not offering a single argument to explain why they think it needs protecting.

Posted by: Rachel Snyder | Oct 21, 2009 8:13:02 PM

Really Pat? Really? So ridiculous. Some people are so clouded by their own prejudices and "tradition" that they fail to see what the Bible really says. Not only is it an abhorrence and a poor regard of scripture, its also really saddening
