BREAKING GNUS: SUPREME COURT DOOMS U.S. TO THE WRATH OF GOD!!!!

In blatant disregard for the will of the Almighty, the Supreme Court today sanctioned same-sex marriages.

God, speaking through the voices of numerous pundits, will rain down His Righteous Wrath on the U.S. to punish the nation for allowing two people who love each other the right to get married irrespective of their genders.

From now until the end of time, every so-called natural disaster will, in truth, be God’s Punishment meted out against the United States for allowing Gay Marriage.

Sunday Roast: Randy Rainbow is dating Kirk Cameron

Yeah, cuz why the hell not?

One of the biggest problems this country has is the American Taliban, and Kirk Cameron aka bad actor turned the only thing anyone would buy, is one of their most stupid leaders.  This is the guy who thinks the banana — one of the most tampered with, most engineered fruits on the friggin’ planet — is proof that “god” exists.

I hope Randy and Kirk will be very happy together.  We all know Randy’s mother approves, and frankly, who cares what Kirk’s mom thinks?  She raised a hateful assholierthanthou bigot.

Texas accidentally banned ALL marriages

This made me laugh out loud. That baby has been thrown out with the bathwater, as we say.

AUSTIN — Texans: Are you really married?

Maybe not.

Barbara Ann Radnofsky, a Houston lawyer and Democratic candidate for attorney general, says that a 22-word clause in a 2005 constitutional amendment designed to ban gay marriages erroneously endangers the legal status of all marriages in the state. (read whole story)

 

Vermont Legalizes Same Sex Marriage

Vermont has had a bit of a roller coaster ride of late, in regards to same sex marriage with the legislature overriding the Republican governor’s veto of the bill.

From the Washington Post:

The Legislature voted Tuesday to override Gov. Jim Douglas’ veto of a bill allowing gays and lesbians to marry. The vote was 23-5 to override in the state Senate and 100-49 to override in the House. Under Vermont law, two-thirds of each chamber had to vote for override.

Congratulations!  Vermont becomes the fourth state to legalize same sex marriage, following Massachusetts, Connecticut and last weeks ruling in Iowa.

Update:  Vermont is the first state to legalize same sex marriage through legislation while the other states legalized it through the courts.

Time to stop talking, Pastor Rick

The Raw Story

Now the pastor of Saddleback Church is making analogies between gay people and pizza…

Mmmmmm, sexy...

Mmmmmm, sexy...

“Just because I like pizza it doesn’t mean I should marry it. Biologically, I am predisposed to enjoy the immaculate melding of mozzarella cheese, red sauce and thick crust baked to tasty perfection.

“But that doesn’t mean I should enter into a lifelong commitment with Sicilian or plain, nor bed it down, nor bring children into the world and have them have to explain to their classmates why their mom’s crust is not a crisp as it once was.

“Does any child deserve to have their friends tossing Monday 2 for 1 coupons in his face? Not in my world they don’t. Yet, to say that I am against pizza-eaters or gays is absurd. Our Saddleback Church offer more weight-watchers meetings to overeaters than any other evangelical megachurch on the west coast.”

Um, what the hell are you talking about, you idiot!?
