Gay marriage is trendy, youthful, and light; traditional Marriage is prudish, outdated, and black.
Love is all you need; the Bible is hocus pocus.
Gay marriage is right and good because all the money spent on weddings will save our economy.
If this is what passes for comedy now days, I'll have no part of it. It didn't make me laugh; it made me roll my eyes and throw my hands up in exasperation and disbelief. I find it telling that the director went straight for mocking religious beliefs, completely ignoring the fact that there are stacks and stacks of secular research studies which prove that the gay lifestyle is violent, destructive, diseased, and unwholesome (check out the resources section here). In truth, the reality of the gay lifestyle is a far cry from the bouncing, singing, "gaiety" depicted on the "beach" in this insipid musical. The reality that is so conspicuously absent from this supposed "humor" is that of AIDS, violence and domestic abuse, broken homes, confused children, and a genderless, dead-end society, left stripped and scorned in the frigid cold, hugging its identity-complexed, family-murdered, dysfunctional self.

Stark contrast, eh? Let's be honest here, do these pictures inspire confidence in the gay community's touted love theme? Does this look like a poor, victimized, minority that needs constitutional protection? Are these the same frolicking, gay beach-goers so "gaily" depicted in Prop 8 - The Musical? The answer is a resounding "NO." Kinda like the one gays already got when 52% of Californians said that gay marriage was not acceptable to them. Seems like we've got ourselves some kids who need a lesson on poor sportsmanship. Gays need a modern-day Martin Luther who can teach them to be respectful and peaceful as they promote their so-called "rights."
Jack Black as Jesus? Give me a break. Check out this Jack Black Biography excerpt:
"This being the Seventies in Los Angeles, the parents believed that one should not say No to one's children, making life ever more volatile. Beyond this, there was what Black later described as weird family stuff, not wife-swapping exactly, but swinging. 'It was funny', he said 'and not funny ha-ha'."
Couldn't say "no" in the Seventies. Gee, imagine that. Perhaps, and this is just a theory, but perhaps the lack of parental discipline then is what feeds this sense of entitlement so prevalent among youth today. Eh? Can I get a "holla?!" Just a thought. So, anyway, back to Black. He says he grew up with an awareness of the "weird" sexual practices of his parents, claiming it wasn't exactly ideal, but in a twisted turn-about he now supports the unconventional. (???) Hm. And then there's this....
"Black met cellist Tanya Haden, one of jazz great Charlie Haden's triplet daughters. In fact, he'd first met Haden back at his specialist high school, but the pair had never dated. Now, after just months together, they'd elope, getting married in March, 2006, with Haden bearing him his first child, son Samuel, that June."
Black doesn't exactly have the greatest track record to be able to establish what is good and right and to represent the Savior of the world. When did sacred things become so openly and brazenly subjected to mockery without so much as a "by your leave?" When were we taught to laugh at blasphemy and promote immorality? When did Jack Black, Margaret Cho, and John C. Reilly become authorities on the Bible? And when did their opinion take precedence over thousands of years worth of Biblical teachings from the Savior Himself and His prophets?
Oh I could go on and on, but I'll save it for another post. Coming up...discussion on how the media has spearheaded the moral neutering of society.
