How About Some Real Progress from Hollywood?

It’s hardly a secret that one of the leading cheerleaders in the same-sex movement has been Hollywood.  Shows like “Modern Family,” “Glee,” and “Smash” are all extremely gay-friendly to the point that even fans get annoyed by the preaching some of these series do in their storylines.

My question for them is “When do you deconstruct these relationships like you have heterosexual relationships for the past 50 years in the name of “drama?”  “Where is the same-sex spousal abuse storyline?  Where is the same-sex infidelity storyline?  How about a same-sex spousal rape storyline in the next season of “Law and Order: SUV?”

And so on…?

How is it that the most stable relationship in the history of “Glee” was the one between two teenage boys?  (Yeah, I know, show creator Ryan Murray’s an advocate, not a realist.)

In all truth, I’m indifferent to gay marriage, though as a Catholic, I’d be more horrified if my church backed same-sex marriage than my country or political party.  Most Catholics know what marriage is to the tenants of the faith.  It is a sacrament, the holiest of all doctrinal decrees.  For that to be broken would be enough to shatter the Church to its core.

That being said, I find the argument from traditional marriage groups that same-sex marriage will “destroy the institution” utterly retarded.  Two straight generations of a society allowing us to throw away commitment with “No-Fault Divorces” and a pop culture egging it on did that.

Which brings me back to my original point.  Isn’t it amazing to see Hollywood rooting for gay marriage since for the past 60 years they’ve been tearing down the very institution all in the name of “artistic creativity?”  Which then of course leads to the next question — When does “Cameron and Mitchell’s” marriage get as deconstructed as “Ozzie and Harriet’s” — all in the name of “damn good television?”

Some Psychic Friends They Were…

Singing icon Dionne Warwick has filed for bankruptcy, the result of owing the government millions of dollars in late taxes.

Most amazing part of this story?  Guy was held captive for a half-hour on the “It’s a Small World” ride, all the while the song was playing non-stop.  Then, because the ride wasn’t wheel-chair accessible, it took another three hours to get him out of the ride.

Prisoners at GITMO have broken under less.

One Hell of a Great Idea

Sen. Ron Johnson’s “Victims of Government” video series is something that you’d hope someone (or some group) would have done years, if not decades ago.  I can immediately imagine the media reaction to this given the usual mindset of “The Iron Triangle” crowd, “There’s victims of government?  Isn’t government supposed to help people?”

That of course raises the question, “Since when the hell has it ever?”  The state is no one’s friend.  Oh, it might be a safety net, but it’s primary role is one of controlling the populace.  We should never forget that.

If we do, we’re done for as a nation.

Still, great video by Ron’s office in D.C.
