Video: Chucking with equality

by Jeremy Hooper

Chuck Hurley had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day:

Ah, cheer up, Chuck. At least it's Friday. You can surely thank the God that you deny to gays for that, right?

The Iowa Ruling [G-A-Y]

Your thoughts

The biggest kick in the balls has to be the fact that the decision was unanimous! Today is a good day!

Heterosexual = stable, loving, committed
Homosexual = leads to sex with things found in stables, loving whatever you can get your hands on, being committed to a mental institution

You should see some of the products of these "stable, loving and committed" relationships in the district in which I teach.

Wow, this is the kind of silver-tongued eloquence we're up against?

We'll have gay marriage nationwide by June!

Is it just me or does he seem a bit stunned or confused?

I'm sure he is, Dan. Chuck Hurley is pretty much THE anti-gay spokesperson for Iowa. His hand has been in it all. So to him, this is like Prop 8 times 50.

Except, of course, for the fact that unlike gays who lost a right with Prop 8, Chuck doesn't really lose anything (other than his pride) because of today's ruling.

A bit stunned? That's a bit generous...

Hurley obviously had no talking points prepared, no contingency plan, no clue that a unanimous outcome might come down against him.

At minimum, had he lost, he was expecting to pick through talking points of the minority justices.

A bit comical, if you ask me.

This video just gave me the impression that churches are fighting to control civil marriage because they can't control marriages through their religion anymore.

Do people fall asleep when he walks into a room?

This guy is such a jerk. His assertion that schools are going to corrupt the minds of children by teaching them that homosexuality is acceptable is laughable. It's true that teachers might say so (because it IS acceptable), but parents are still capable of teaching their own children otherwise if they so desire. Look at civil rights. Teachers tell their students that civil rights afforded equality to African Americans, that no person should be discriminated against because of the color of his or her skin. Yet there are plenty of children whose parents teach them otherwise and grow up to be racist idiots.

Same-sex marriage isn't stopping Chuck Hurley from preaching his anti-gay agenda. No matter how the school curriculum changes, Hurley still has the opportunity to teach his congregation or his family otherwise -- it's his right as an American, unfortunate though that may be.

I understand that some people are never going to change their minds about same-sex marriage, but could they please stop using this bullshit excuse about corrupting the youth of America?

Every schoolchild in Iowa will be taught about equality and fairness.

The horror!
