Proposition 8: Not-Fabulous!

August 5, 2010

Most of you probably know that Proposition 8 was overturned yesterday in California. As far as I’m concerned that is a good thing. Unfortunately, both sides in this issue agree that the legal battle surrounding same-sex marriage is far from over.

Here’s a good analysis of the Prop 8 ruling via Drew Tatusko.

In light of yesterday’s ruling, I introduce you to Adam Hood, one of the most confused persons in America. I can’t even begin to imagine the dissonance that this man lives with inside. After some of his inane ramblings, especially the one about the fatherless, he declares, “I was actually pleasured by homosexual sex…” Yeah, let me put my surprise face on!

The most confused man in America:

    I was happy when they overturned prop 8 too.

    But that video… you never cease to amaze me bro.

    I won’t dispute that this guy is confused, but I’m not sure I would award him the most confused man in America award. He doesn’t seem more confused than many fundamentalist/conservative Christians on this issue, and the points he makes don’t sound that much different (other than the line about where the sperm go of course). For example, couldn’t you imagine John Piper saying most of the same things, with similar cadence and hand gestures?

      I’m saying confused because I would guess this man probably still struggles with homosexual inclinations. John Piper wouldn’t be confused because he wasn’t actively involved in a homosexual lifestyle though I would love to see him in the ascot snappin’ his fingers: “Calvinism heeeeeyyyyy…”

        LOL! Actually, sniggering softly at my desk at work…

        Agreed.

    From the brief news article I read, the judge’s opinion/decision is 136 pp. long. If that’s true, then it’s premature and immature and wrong for any Pro-Prop 8 person or Christian or politician to come out against the decision if they haven’t yet read it. The news article suggested it was a well-reasoned/argued opinion in terms of U.S. law and hence will present an interesting situation for the Supreme Court.

    This morning on drive-time radio, the consensus was the judge pretty much kicked the hot potato upstairs to the appeals courts. His ruling pretty much put everything on hold until things get decided at a higher court.

    Stuff that was coming out about the judge was that he was (a) gay and (b) appointed by Bush 41. If (a) is true, I can see why he kicked it upstairs — he doesn’t want even the appearance of conflict-of-interest. Three guesses what’s gonna be preached from all those Christian Culture War pulpits this Sunday and how they’re going to spin (a).

    Think we could get the guy from that “It’s Prophesied, It’s Prophesied” music video a posting or two ago to write and sing a commentary on this?

      He was actually appointed by Reagan on the suggestion of Ed Meese. The appointment was blocked by Democrats. He was opposed by gay groups for having represented the Olympics in a lawsuit against people who wanted to hold an event called the Gay Olympics.

      Eventually Bush 41 was able to get him confirmed.

      “I can see why he kicked it upstairs — he doesn’t want even the appearance of conflict-of-interest.”

      It was inevitable that it would be appealed, no matter how he ruled. And conflict-of-interest is absurd. A straight Catholic judge would have no less of a conflict of interest.

        It was inevitable that it would be appealed, no matter how he ruled

        Which is why he worked in seven or eight references to Justice Kennedy’s previous rulings. Walker didn’t just punt this, he aimed it very carefully. Oh, and he also pointed out the gaping flaws in the arguments from the defense, who really did not bring their “A” game to this.

      Opponents of the ruling are implying/suggesting that the judge’s ruling was gay-friendly and against Proposition 8 because he himself is gay. They imply this shouldn’t have been given to a gay judge.

      So, would they voice the same complaint if he were heterosexual and had sided in favor of Proposition 8 and “traditional marriage”?

      INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW!!

        I think anybody could have seen that one coming.
        1) Judge rules for gay marriage.
        2) Judge is one of THEM himself.
        3) Apply Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory…
