Today’s entry is going to be a shorty. The IMDB posted a story yesterday about the infamous Jerry Falwell, that man of too many words. In the brief story, it quotes Jerry as saying, “You know, you almost got to be a homosexual to be recognized in the entertainment industry anymore.” The industry in question is film business of course. He then adds, “Movie stars not married to each other, having babies and making headlines all over the world as though they were doing some great thing. Big deal! Just another moral pervert. And for them to become heroes for our kids.”
The thing I never understood about the whole “Gay Marriage” debate was when people said that it ruined the sanctity of marriage. That has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Let’s take a good look at how straight people handle marriage for a second. Almost half of all straight marriages end in divorce. In my world, that “ruins the sanctity” of marriage much more than gays. Why not put divorce into the constitution if you want to save your precious marriage kingdom?
I guess that’s why I am not in politics. My brain attempts to find the actual cause of a problem, not find scapegoats.
The following words are the opinion of Michael Ferraro, not that of Film Threat. So take it out on him and don’t bring your ones to town son.
Falwell probably thinks that being gay just isn’t natural. That’s pretty amazing too, considering he believes that Jesus came from a virgin womb. Let’s take a trip down Imagination Lane for a second. Pretend that I am a woman. Now, let’s say one day I wake up and I’m pregnant, but I’ve never had sex. What are the chances that people would believe that story? That I am the mother of some new savior, even though I’ve never had sex. I’d be put in an institution and never heard from again. Yet, his savior was built on the words of a group of people over 2000 years ago, the same group of people who probably invented the rectal pear.
Is Hollywood really built on homosexuality? Maybe he came to this conclusion watching the new Superman film but I doubt Falwell is a superhero fan. I doubt he is a fan of anything, outside of the religious text of course. It’s obvious Falwell doesn’t own a copy of Brokeback Mountain on his DVD shelf. It must piss him off that Wal-Mart has no problem selling it too.
I completely agree, Michael.
God loves all mankind, not just the heterosexuals.
Besides Terrell Owens, I don’t think there is anyone in this world as detached from reality as Jerry Falwell is.
The guy needs some hobbies.
I agree on the gay marriage thing Mike. Me thinks Christianity would appreciate ANYTHING that promotes monogamy. I think if anyone who is serious and won’t screw it up that wants a shot at legally being bound to anyone for eternity, then let them do it for god’s sake. I mean it is beautiful people out there still even believe in marriage. Gay people love God too, and God love’s gay people.
Too much else to worry about in this dying planet to worry about this, Jerrs.
Of course Hollywood is built on homosexuality! How do you explain Xanadu?
