The quality of today’s pro basketball makes it unlikely that anybody will ever top Wilt Chamberlain’s 100 point game. In his autobiography, Wilt said,
As I’ve traveled the world, I’ve probably had 10,000 people tell me that they saw my 100 point game at Madison Square Garden. Well, the game was in Hershey and there were about 4,000 [actually 4,124] there.
That quote strikes me as the best possible metaphor for what we are dealing with when it comes to gay marriage.
Just EVERYBODY knows “life long monogamous lesbi/gay couples.”
EVERY community in EVERY nation has HORDES of said couples just agonizing because they can’t find an Episcopalian ceremony to bless their life long monogamous relationship.
The fact is, decent research from places like the University of Chicago (is that a right wing place now?) puts the homosexual population at around 2%. Of this, some %, and probably a pretty small one, wants a marriage. Shrink that down even more for those who want a religious ceremony. Somewhere near the vanishing point, you’ll find a little cluster who want an EPISCOPALIAN ritual of some sort. Actually, they’re pretty much all at a hotel in Indianapolis tonight.
With every TV series, movie or whatever required to feature one or more homosexual characters (always positive characters, by the way), it shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, every news panel or talk show bunch I hear lets it drop that they all know wonderful life long monogamous lesbi/gay couples suffering without marriage.
It is an epic piece of propaganda. Sadly, like the 10,000 folks who told Wilt they were at his 100 point game, it’s pretty much a bunch of lies.
Like all movements founded on lies, this too shall pass. Ironically, the worst thing that can happen to “gay marriage” (and the “gay rights” movement in general) is for it to be fully embraced by one of the fastest declining mainline churches in America. A denomination on the fast track to mortality can only hasten the demise of any faddish cause it embraces along the way.
