‘Ex-Gay’: Some Gay People Don’t Want Gay Marriage. Oh, and Slavery.

One of the wingnuts at that National Press Club press conference was Janet Boynes, an “ex-gay” preacher who somehow thinks it’s relevant that some unnamed gay people don’t support gay marriage. Oh, and if gay people are allowed to get married, that will send her “back to slavery.” See if you can make sense of this incoherent mess, which begins first with Rick Scarborough declaring his willingness to die for…oh, blah blah blah.

    Um … ‘unless everyone, including us, agree that we’re wrong, we’re right’?

    And just like non-gay people, they don’t have to get gay married.

    Christians are going to make a stand for their right to be against other people making a stand for their rights. Which they’ve a perfect right to do — in their church. Otherwise, you can complain but not control.

    I thought it was amusing that Scarborough gave me permission to “reject God’s Word” and his “calling” right before pretending that arguing against him limits his first amendment rights.

    She’s a preacher? Some Christians really do like cherry picking their bibles…

    “And just like non-gay people, they don’t have to get gay married.”

    Wait… what? We don’t? Oh, thank goodness! I mean, I was willing to take one for the home team (as it were), but my wife was really excited about having a wife, not for the sex you understand (?) but just to kind of have a live in friend, sister, etc.

    I know that polygamy would not be far to follow so I thought I might gin up a nice little group marriage (big fan of Stranger in a Strange Land), but if it’s not mandatory it does make it a bit less complicated.

    I’m quite willing to let Rick die.

    Those gay people who don’t want gay marriage have a simple option — don’t get married.
