Video: Maggie embraces the 'too much gay before morning coffee' theory

by Jeremy Hooper

For most of her appearance, you'll hear the same old stuff: A love for majority tyranny, a disdain for the fair-minded judiciary, and general hostility for any family that falls outside of her narrow definition. Oh my.

But for some undeniably galling insight into how Maggie Gallagher truly sees our lives and our lives -- and more importantly, how she wants the whole of America to see us -- start watching this clip at the 4:45 mark. Because as you will hear, it's not really about "protecting marriage." Instead, it's Maggie's belief that our sweet love (and the celebration thereof) will lead "midwestern, middle-aged, mainstream women" to gag up their Cheerios:

Yea, Maggie? We're the ones who aren't going to keep things "private"? Here you are going on national (Christian) television, essentially telling anyone who will listen that (a) this nation's millions of gay people are unfit for morning TV, and (b) that this nation's "midwestern, middle-aged, mainstream women" demographic is monolithically sickened by same-sex love. And yet it's GAY PEOPLE who need to shut up and hide their marriage views?!?!?

Insolent, Maggie. Simply insolent.

**Oh, and btw, M.G.: Martha Stewart is the "Today" show's resident wedding, etiquette, and generalized "good thing" expert. And she, my dear, is fully on board with our love!
