Hello There. I Am Awful.

Brent Bozell:
But one thing everybody knows, whatever their political or religious persuasion: they want to blend in. They don’t want the “audience” – their family, their friends, their co-workers, even strangers – to look at each other and whisper, “Did he really say that? What a fool! Wayyy over the top.” No matter how old we get, no matter how secure or successful we become, for many of us, nothing ever takes the place of being “cool.”

Is same-sex marriage “cool?” That’s what the “cool kids” tell us. It’s up there now with smoking, nose-rings, vampire romances, and holes in your blue jeans. Unfortunately, it also wreaks havoc on the home, shatters the social structure, confuses children, and corrupts the culture. History shows that no society has ever indulged it and long survived. Which is probably why it is so clearly and strongly discouraged by the God Who created men and women, marriage and sex for His own purposes. And why those purposes have never altered to accommodate current fashions.

But then God, of course, is not cool, and never has been. And moral conventions have always been so … conventional. Neither plays well against the standards constantly being revised by Hollywood and political opportunists. Neither is easily explained to, or widely respected by, our brothers and sisters, our sons and daughters, our grandchildren, so many of whom are now embracing the hot, cool cause of redefining marriage.
I suppose the good part here is that Brent acknowledges that he wants to be cool and can't be and will suffer until he dies.



UPDATE:

In what is a total surprise to me this is Alan Sears and not Brent Bozell. I blame Hollywood permissiveness.

wreaks havoc on the home,
Umm, which home? Can you name one?

shatters the social structure,
Really? "Shatters" it? In what way is the Social Structure shattered by marriage equality?

confuses children,
Hmm, seems like it was a LOT more confusing making up weird stories to explain Uncle Stanley and his "roommate"

and corrupts the culture.
An exercise. Please explain how marriage equality corrupts the culture in a way that "Two and a Half Men" or "Real Housewives of Atlanta" do not. Go ahead - I'll wait.

Brent. When you ASSUME THE PREMISE, you make an ASS out of you and...Well, pretty much just you.

AGAIN...

The God Who were second rate at best. What did they think they were doing?

What? I thought opposite-sex marriage was an eternal value that had never been disputed in all of history. Could this clown provide an example of a society that's "indulged" it?

Mine, Mikey. Yup even Moosehall, where a man's refrigerator box is his castle, is at the center of a gay-marriage paroxysm. My wife was reading an article on gay marriage, and I asked her what she thought. She replied that her thinking on the subject had really changed. "Next time" she said, "I plan on marrying a man!"

Oy, once she had a waist you could span with an embroidery hoop, and now her reach exceeds my gasp. What can you do?

Well, I read at another website whose name I forget that two Watusi warriors, in full regalia, recently tied the knot, plaited their troth, and generally got hitched recently. But I'm not sure the site is reliable.
