The ultimate anti-gay marriage commercial.

Behold!  A commercial for how things would really look if marriage equality could really destroy the institution of marriage.

  • John Horstman

    Yeah, the only ways I can interpret that ‘argument’ is as 1) entirely disingenuous or 2) projection: if I, the closeted, self-hating gay person, am allowed to marry someone I actually want to marry, I might just do it, so gay marriage will ruin my sham-heterosexual marriage. For most people, I think it’s simple parroting of nonsense (originally spouted by people in group #1 or #2) or #1.

      I didn’t watch the commercial, so I’m just going off your comment here. I was once in what turned out to be a sham-heterosexual marriage. My ex was gay. I didn’t know it. Did he know it? I have no clue; I’ve never asked. One day, he simply walked out. It was devastating. For me. For my son. It would have been much less devastating if, when we first met, he had felt comfortable saying, hey, I’m gay, let’s be friends, OK? But he was brought up in a homophobic household living in a homophobic city, so he used me to become respectable, and all of us suffered. Far better if he had been able to acknowledge who he was, spend his life with the person he really wanted to spend it with, and not spend 10 years lying to me (and maybe to himself). And I lied to myself, too. I pretended our marriage was happy. But it so obviously wasn’t that I could see it, and I thought there was something wrong with me. My marriage was ruined by the lack of acceptance of different sexual realities. I can’t say that, if I hadn’t married him, I would have made a better choice, in a happier relationship, or been content with no marriage at all. I can only say that, whatever I did experience, it would have been more honest.

    What they mean is that heterosexual marriage just won’t be as much fun any more if it is no longer possible to sneer condescendingly at gay couples as second-class citizens. After all, the best part of any heterosexual marriage is laughing at a lesbian in the hospital who is crying because she is not allowed to visit her lifelong partner in intensive care. Sort of like how most of the joy in going to heaven is being able to watch the sinners roasting in hell.
    That and the fact that they are afraid all of their children will turn gay if they are not able to browbeat them with constant reminders of society’s disapproval of homosexuality.

    They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator. . . Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Romans 1:25-27

      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”

      Well, it sounds like gay people today should be just fine, as long as they’re not ashamed of what they’re doing.

      The only truth about god is he doesn’t exist. You claim otherwise, show proof of a level acceptable to scientists.

      Put up or shut up.

      Long ago, a storm was heading for the city of Quin’lat. Everyone took protection within the walls except one man who remained outside. Kahless went to him and asked what he was doing. “I am not afraid,” he said. “I will not hide my face behind stone and mortar. I will stand before the wind and make it respect me.” Kahless honored his choice and went back inside. The next day, the storm came… and the man was killed.

      The wind does not respect a fool.

      -Excerpt from the tale of Kahless, Klingon spiritual leader.

        Well done ZA! I’ll add that even though it’s made up, it’s no less true.

      This passage really makes no sense. So, being gay is punishment for not worshiping God, or something like that? That’s really not much of a punishment in itself, as it sounds from the passage like the people were having a pretty good time. And, if that’s how God punishes people who worship the wrong things, why are there so many non-Christian heterosexuals? ;-)

      Generally, I am unimpressed with people who come along and post Bible verses with none of their own words in the comment section. Most of the people here are familiar with the Biblical passages about homosexuality. If you’d like to persuade us, please explain why we should believe that these passages have divine authority (after you’ve justified that divine authority is a real thing).

      IS this from a book? I would like to learn more as this is quite a compelling argument. Can you link to the whole thing. I see it called “Romans”, is it anything like Gladiator? I loved that movie!

      A the top of the comment, for the author, it reads “Mark says”. Shouldn’t it read “Paul says”?

      If you believe this, you are the same as those assholes at Westboro, just slightly more polite. And more than a bit dishonest.
