Remember when Pat Robertson said that hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment for New Orleans because they’d had a gay pride parade? Well I think we ought to all be prepared for every natural disaster that God can manage in the near future. Yesterday I learned that Thomas Roberts…that really good looking newscaster on MSNBC is getting married tomorrow…to his male partner! Oh my God. First it was Anderson Cooper announcing that he was “one of them”…and then Kevin McClatchy admitting that he’s light in his loafers….no wonder there’s a drought in the midwest and the Pirates are playing such lousy baseball.
Two of my bestest friends with whom I once owned a business announced that they were married quietly last summer…two more men who have tempted fate…as well as another big gay nuptial in New York coming up early next month. We were warned about the “gay agenda” for years…but alas…here we are…on the eve of destruction.
You’d think that the Pope’s warning that the biggest threats to the modern world were terrorism and gay marriage would have perhaps at least slowed the tide. Rick Santorum has no doubt already begun to file divorce papers as he sees how these gay people are destroying his marriage..and Michelle Bachmann’s poor husband…trying his best to turn gays into normal people…
(I’m sure that’s why the big 400 pound walrus flits around like a demented pixie…he’s just unraveling from all the pressure)
Well I am personally trying to adjust to all of these changes as best I can. I don’t care about Anderson wearing that big diamond Vanderbilt brooch, and if Kevin M. wants his players to wear a little bronzer and play with their shirts off when he buys another team…so be it. I have a little trouble with the idea of Thomas Roberts raising his dog with two dad’s now..but I’ll roll with it.
Bottom line. I first understood my church’s tough position when it comes to current trends and changes when the cardinal in New York was fighting with the Vatican about how long his train could be on his cardinal robes…the Vatican had said nine feet…and he was demanding eleven. So just as that was eventually settled, so will the issue of gay marriage eventually be accepted.
The Good Lord will no doubt still punish us all for all this gay stuff, in fact I saw my first stink bug last night…a sure sign of an impending plague…no doubt a first response to Thomas Roberts’ walk down the aisle tomorrow…and by the way I was watching Tommy long before his new husband even heard of him.
