Porno Petey on Disney and Gay Weddings

Porno Petey on Disney and Gay Weddings April 8, 2007

You knew the religious right would waste no time wringing their hands over Disney allowing gay couples to purchase their fairy tale wedding packages for commitment ceremonies. Pete Labarbera’s Americans for Truth (sic) has this amusing response to the announcement:

So deluded homosexuals may shell out over $8,000 for a wedding planner, feast, flowers and decorations, and a ride in a giant pumpkin, but, at the stroke of midnight, when the mist clears and the last fleck of glitter floats to the ground, the perverted pair will discover ’twas all merely an illusion. Two men or two women may play dress-up in tiaras and tulle and tuxes (respectively), but afterward they will remain immoral in the eyes of God and unmarried in the eyes of man; same-sex pairs can never experience the mystery of becoming “one flesh” nor the miracle of procreation.


Saying that gays can’t experience the “mystery” of becoming “one flesh” is sort of like saying, “You can eat all the pumpernickel bread you want, but everyone knows that only rye bread can transubstantiate into the actual body and blood of Christ.” You’re assigning silly religious meaning to an entirely human event. But naturally, Petey encourages folks to boycott Disney and instead take the kids to Ken Ham’s creationism museum opening in Ohio. Where they can learn ridiculous lies like the earth is only 6000 years old and there was once a global flood that killed off everything that wasn’t in the ark. At least when Disney tells fairy tales, they don’t pretend they’re real.
