Jon Lajoie Is Paid To Oppose Marriage Equality. Nails It.

You may recognize Jon Lajoie from his role on The League, but he also has some really funny YouTube videos.

Jon Lajoie

His most recent video, discussing the issue of same-sex marriage, is fantastic:

Recently, a lot of celebrities and public figures have been coming out in support of same-sex marriage, which is great. However, there are still some people who oppose same-sex marriage. And some of those people happen to have a lot of money and they also need celebrities to endorse their point of view.  Lord knows I would do anything for money, so let’s get this thing started!

Besides being a really funny video, it contains my favorite hypothetical description of Jesus of all time. I would transcribe it for you, but there is absolutely no way it can be done justice by writing it down.

Spoiler Alert: Jesus is not Danny Glover.

    If it only had some Steve in the video it would have been perfect and if you don’t know who Steve is, watch Everyday Normal Guy and Part 2 but they are both NSFW.

    ~3:30 gave me flash backs to high school debate (here’s a quicke test to tell if someone did HS debate, ask them what sending food to Africa does – the chain of events isn’t important so long as it winds up in WWIII and the end of the world)

    otherwise – he made essentially two arguments in there that were pro-anti-gay marriage  1) NO! 2) gay marriage is bad; bad things are what you want and you don’t want bad things so you’re against gay marriage! QED.

    I’m at work or I’d check out his other videos.  And videos on dog training.  I have to go swimming later.

    After following the debate for quite a while, you tend to notice that the reasons that are given for opposing same sex marriage tend to be silly, sometimes desperately so. I’m not sure about the US, but in the UK, religious types are fully aware that the vast majority of people don’t care about the rules of their religion. As a consequence of this, they have to try to come up with genuine reasons to be opposed to something, because just saying because God says so isn’t going to convince anyone. Of course, as in this case, there aren’t any genuine reasons so they keep losing the argument.

    I am so gullible when it comes to videos like this, which are described as being funny. I watch them, and then briefly hate myself for expecting to laugh.

    As far as I can glean, the main reason to be opposed to same-sex marriage is so that religious followers of Abrahamic faiths won’t feel awkward opposing it. You know, if same-sex couples can marry then it makes Christians who object seem like wet blankets raining on someone’s happy occasion.

    And that’s not fair to them. It makes them look like bigots. Why can’t LGBT people just stop it with demands for equality? It’s getting so that people with prejudices against non-heterosexuals are having to face objections to their opinions.
