90-Year-Old Former U.S. Senator and Adviser to Martin Luther King to ‘Marry’ 40-Year-Old Man

Wofford-compressedHARRISBURG, Pa. — A 90-year-old former U.S. senator and adviser to Martin Luther King, Jr. has announced that he plans to “wed” his 40-year-old male partner on Saturday.

Harris Wofford served in the Senate from 1991 to 1995, and was the Pennsylvania Secretary of Labor and Industry from 1987 until his election to Congress. He also worked as a civil rights assistant to then President John F. Kennedy in the 1960’s, and helped with Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

The year after his departure from the Senate, Wofford’s wife of 48 years, Clare, passed away following a struggle with leukemia.

On Saturday, the New York Times published an article penned by Wofford entitled “Finding Love Again, This Time With a Man.” In the piece, Wofford explained that five years after his wife died, he entered into a relationship with another man.

“We were both about to turn 70 when [Claire] died. I assumed that I was too old to seek or expect another romance. But five years later, standing on a beach in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., I sensed a creative hour and did not want to miss it,” he wrote.

Wofford said that he met a then 25-year-old Matthew Charlton while at the beach and found himself having feelings that went beyond friendship.

“I admired Matthew’s adventurous 25-year-old spirit. When he told me that I was ‘young at heart,’ I liked the idea,” he wrote. “We took trips around the country and later to Europe together, becoming great friends. We both felt the immediate spark, and as time went on, we realized that our bond had grown into love. Other than with Clare, I had never felt love blossom this way before.”

Wofford said that he doesn’t believe it matters if the person he has feelings for is male or female.

“Too often, our society seeks to label people by pinning them on the wall—straight, gay or in between. I don’t categorize myself based on the gender of those I love. I had a half-century of marriage with a wonderful woman, and now am lucky for a second time to have found happiness,” he opined.

The former adviser to Martin Luther King Jr. then announced that he and Charlton planned to “wed” on April 30 and asserted that homosexuality is the next civil rights movement.

“I had seen firsthand—working and walking with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.—that when the time was right, major change for civil rights came to pass in a single creative decade. It is right to expand our conception of marriage to include all Americans who love each other,” he stated.

Reaction to the announcement has been mixed.

“Shouldn’t Wofford be free to do what he wants as long as he doesn’t harm anyone?” one commenter wrote.

“Perhaps. But in this case, he is harming the entire fabric of society by petending perversion is normal,” another replied. “‘Do what thou will shall be the law’ was suggested by the arch Satanist Alistair Crowley.”

    Another great proof that men are not born gay. It’s a lifestyle choice. You choose who you love. You choose to be with the opposite sex, same sex or remain alone. Some choices are pleasing to your Creator and others are not. All choices we make must be held up to the word of God if He truly is our King. We are not even made to worship Him in truth… That also is a choice.

    • gizmo23

      I never understood why it mattered if gay people were born that way or a choice. Please explain

      • Nidalap

        Now that’s a good question, Mogwai. The homosexual movement decided to adopt the ‘born that way’ narrative very simply to enable them to hook their wagon to the civil rights movement. It allows them to say that it’s a trait like skin color, you see…

        • gizmo23

          I here anti gay people using that argument, choice vs born, fairly often, more than gay people.

          • Nidalap

            They’re probably responding to that very argument. Else, why bring it up themselves? 🙂

          • gizmo23

            I don’t know why the argument occurs, which was my original question

          • Ambulance Chaser

            I don’t know either. It’s not like you can’t change your religion, but there it is, a strongly protected class.

          • Ronald Carter

            Did YOU miss the plethora of “kill the gays” Christian pastors?

          • Ken M

            Gays kill each other with infections, so why don’t you stick to the actual DEATHS, in the thousands, instead of the pastors, who kill no one? Oh, wait, that’s right – you don’t take any responsibility for your diseases, you’d rather scapegoat Christians.

          • Ronald Carter

            Not picking on Christians, just the ones who tar and feather gay people with ridiculous stereotypes and faith-based hatred. Tell me, how much disease are two monogamous gay people opening themselves up to? You think HIV is just going to magically appear because they are gay?

          • Slidellman4life

            There’s no hatred. Homosexuality is a sin, and Christians are not being told to tolerate it. If you have a problem with that, you take that up with God.

          • Ronald Carter

            Funny how many Christians I know who have no issue with it. Guess your God’s mind isn’t as made up about it as you think or you wouldn’t have this division.

            Actually many more Christian heterosexuals have died of AIDS than homosexuals have. However those Christian heterosexual simply happen to be in poor African countries, so I guess they don’t count for you 🙂

          • Slidellman4life

            There is no plethora, liar. Only one has come on record endorsing that, and he has been rightfully disavowed. Christians do not believe in, recommend, encourage or endorse the killing of homosexuals.

            “Liar”, eh?

            Pastor James David Manning, Harlem –

            Christians Must Be Willing To Kill To Stop Sodomites

            “.. against the sodomites, against racism – we’re gonna have to be willing to kill as well. You can try to arrest me, saying that I’m inciting murderous behavior. Go ahead and try. See if that will stand up in court. Let me tell you
            something, if you’re not willing to kill for what you believe, if you’re not will to kill those that are diametrically opposed in great evil against you believe, then you’re not worthy of his service. You gotta be willing to kill.”

            Pastor Donnie Romero, founder of Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas

            Texas pastor brags about harassing lesbians as he calls for death of ‘dirty f*ggots’

            “I love that part of the Bible, and I’m going to preach that part of the Bible until the day I die, and if I ever stop preaching that part of the Bible, I hope my kids tell me, ‘Dad, you’re going soft on sin. You need to get up there and rip on these queers because it’s only getting worse and worse’”

            “Romero said gays should be marked for death, unlike other sinners, because he said God views them as an abomination.”

            Pastor Stephen L. Anderson, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona

            ‘Kill All Homos’ Pastor: ‘It’s the Government’s Job’ to Execute Gay People

            “It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there,” he told his congregation after quoting from Leviticus. “Because if you executed
            the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”

            “Rather than the government’s job is to punish criminals and to execute those who commit capital crimes and, according to the Bible, homosexuality is a capital crime, and I didn’t write the Bible.”

            “Well, that’s just a fallacy that it just turns out that certain people are gay. That’s just a lie. Because it’s not random — it’s not something that’s just gonna accidentally happen to one of my children…”

            AZ Pastor’s ‘Biblical’ FINAL SOLUTION to ‘Homo’
            ‘Pedophiles’: Mass Extermination

            “And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS. It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there. Because if you executed the homos like God
            recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.

            Because just think — what would be your attitude toward pedophiles? That should be your attitude toward homos. Would you have pedophiles over for a family gathering? Would you invite pedophiles into the church? No — that’s what they are.”

            Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church

            “I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers. Build a great, big, large fence — 150- or 100-mile long — put all the lesbians in there . . . do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals, and have that fence
            electrified so they can’t get out.”

            Pastor Robby Gallaty, Brainerd Baptist Church

            “They must be put to death. And their blood is on their own hands”

            Pastor Curtis Knapp, of the New Hope Baptist Church in
            Seneca, Kansas

            “They should be put to death. Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them, no?’ I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should.”

            Pastor Robert Anderson, Colonial Baptist Church

            “Those who practice such things are deserving of death”

            Pastor Michael V. Williams, PreachingPolitics

            “practice of homosexuality in the United States of America and in all its territories and possessions, and in all its States, Counties and Cities shall be a felony punishable by ten years in prison at hard labor.”

            Reverend Michael Crook

            “I really, truly wish that atheism and homosexuality could both be criminalized with the death penalty as end result”

            Numerous problems, here:

            1) Lack of sources.
            2) Some of these quotes look like they were taken out of context so it is hard to know if they were actually endorsing the killing of homosexuals.
            3) There is no quote on record for Romero.
            4) Two of these clearly do not call for the death of homosexuals, but rather isolation and hard labor.
            5) Stephen Anderson is a nutter, though not as bad as the late Fred Phelps.

            So much for your “plethora,” liar.

          • Ronald Carter

            The sources are there. Google them. I’d provide the web links but this website tends to frown on that. Also it’s very bad form to call someone a “liar” merely because you don’t like what they have to say to you.

          • Slidellman4life

            Dude, you are calling two people a “plethora.” Two.

            I do not know what color the sky is where you live, but here on Earth, in a place called reality, to knowingly make a statement you know to be false as true is a lie. Which is what a two-man plethora is.

          • Ronald Carter

            Just because you elect not to believe most of them doesn’t make them any less true. I have all the links. I have Google.

            So typical of your side…”I don’t believe you therefore it’s a fact that you’re wrong.”

          • Slidellman4life

            You have two people. That’s it.

            And I am not saying you are wrong. I am saying you are either a moron or a pathological liar. And you are categorically insane if you actually believe anyone with half a brain is going to buy into your word vomit.

          • Ronald Carter

            You know, it is really not difficult to use Google. Here’s what I found which perfectly backs up every one of my factual statements. You can do the rest yourself. Maybe this will cure you of your baseless accusations and childish name calling.

            No, no lunch counters are denying service to gays. Just bakers and florists.

          • Elie Challita

            You do realize that homosexuality wasn’t decriminalized until the last 40 or 50 years right? For pity’s sake, Alan Turing was chemically castrated because of his orientation.

            And guess what? They are correct.

        • Gott Mit Uns!

          According to the far-right fringe, there is no such thing as skin color.

        • Ronald Carter

          Actually that’s not true, because there is no consensus on whether they were born that way or whether it happens early in life, but what can’t be denied is that it isn’t a choice. Everyone can relate to having crushes and attractions. They just occur naturally, no one can make a choice to be sexually attracted to someone else.

          • Slidellman4life

            And yet you can’t explain pride parades, bisexuality and why homosexuals can’t procreate.

          • Ronald Carter

            Pride parades? MANY homosexuals are not interested in them. The pride parades are for the political and out and loud and proud people, and there are just as many who’d prefer to keep their private lives private.

            Bisexuality? What do you need to have explained? No one is exclusively gay or straight, we all fall at different points along a continuum. Bisexual people are at the halfway mark. Seems straightforward enough.

            Homosexuals can’t procreate but so what? Neither can infertile couples or the elderly. Do we tell them they can’t be in love?

      • The Skeptical Chymist

        I’ve never understood this either, gizmo. It seems to me that unless there is a lack of consent, adults should be able to choose their life partners (and love partners) as they wish. It should not be society’s business, or the government’s.

        • ComeOnPeople!

          Gays used that argument before anyone else. They used it to imply that anyone who disagreed with them being Gay was discriminating against them just like blacks had been discriminated against. Blacks couldn’t change how they were created and neither could a Gay person was the argument. It was Gay propaganda that didn’t work . The God made me Gay propaganda was quickly debunked by good ole common sense and science . Now they are moving onto other tactics to demonize anyone who disagrees with their lifestyle.

          • gizmo23

            I seem to recall Jerry Falwell stating in about 1980 that gays should not have equal rights because it was a choice and not genetic

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Jerry Falwell hmmm nope not God. Let GOD be true and every man a liar. Sorry God’s words will always trump mans words. Go read what God has to say on the subject.

          • John N

            So science has quickly debunked people being born gay?

            Would you care to show us the evidence for that? Because, as far as I know, science says sexual orientation is caused by an interplay of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences.

            And ‘ole common sense’ is what is telling is the sun daily rises in the east. I wouldn’t trust it too much.

          • Slidellman4life

            100% of these so-called findings have turned out to be flawed, self-serving or both.

            Evidence does exist, however, that children are brought into the lifestyle by manipulation and/or abuse.

          • John N

            Where they? Now you’re making me very curious. Care to join our evidence?

            Until you do, I think we better stick to what science tells us.

            But even if at the end sexual orientation turns out to be a choice, it would be at the same level as religion. Except for the part that homosexuals do not intend to discriminate people that are different, while thta seems to be a requirement for some religious worldviews.

          • Slidellman4life

            Now you’re making me very curious. Care to join our evidence?

            Both are videos that can be found on YouTube.

            But even if at the end sexual orientation turns out to be a choice, it would be at the same level as religion.

            False. The right to believe is God given and constitutional. Sexual behavior, especially abnormal sexual behavior, is not.

          • John N

            Video’s? You mean scientific evidence is now published in video’s?

            I didn’t think so.

            And Ryan Sorba is now a scientists? Nope.

            Sorry, you’ll have to do better than that.

            ‘Sexual behavior, especially abnormal sexual behavior, is not (constitutional).’

            So homosexuality is not permiited according to the constitution, is it? Again, care to show where it is forbidden?

          • Slidellman4life

            This is so funny I am having a hard time getting by the grammar errors!

          • John N

            Indeed. Ignorance is not a virtue. That is way I did not watch the videos – when I asked for evidence I meant real, scientific evidence, coming from a scientist who has studied the phenomenon – not a right-wing activist who thinks homosexuality is a hobby.

          • Slidellman4life

            That means you are stupid and wish to remain so.

          • Ronald Carter

            The honorable thing to do here would be admit you are wrong and don’t have a scientific source. YouTube is the cesspool of the internet, not a source of information.

          • Slidellman4life

            I was not even talking to you. Shut it.

            It’s a public forum. Put on your big girl panties and deal with it.

      • frank

        The argument goes like this. If gay people are born gay, its not their fault. They can even argue that God created them that way. If on the other hand being gay is a choice, then the individual is responsible for the ‘sinful lifestyle’ they have chosen. I have yet to hear anybody argue for ‘heredity and environment’ as they seemingly do for everything else.

        • Ken Faivor

          Some were born that way in the sense that they inherited this curse from their ancestors. God said so.

          Exo_34:7 keeping lovingkindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin; and that will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation.

          There is only one cure for the curse…..The Lord Jesus, the Christ.

        • Ronald Carter

          Homosexuality isn’t hereditary. In fact, every single homosexual was born as a result of a heterosexual union.

          • frank

            There are countless conflicting studies that claim homosexuality is and isn’t hereditary. Regardless I hope you realize your logic sounds good but isn’t sound.

        That claim was pushed by the LG community for a long time & they compared anyone who disagreed with their lifestyle choice to those who discriminated against people of color. Because it has never been proven and was just flat out silly, they have sought out other tactics to demonize anyone who disagrees with them. So sorry you are mistaken , wasn’t me.

    Just in case anyone forgot the great Dr. King has been dead for 48 years. I can’t imagine why his name appears in the headline. In fact Dr. King’s name appears twice before we even learn the identity of the subject of the article. According to the Wikipedia former senator Wofford was an ‘unofficial’ adviser to the late Dr. King. And in his entire career Dr. King never spoke publicly on the subject of homosexuality.

      Not in God’s eyes. He said if you keep His instructions you will be blessed and if you don’t you will be cursed. We can wish them all the best but if they continue in a sinful lifestyle they will not be blessed. I’d much rather save my words to warn them and help them to repent and turn back to the one who created them and serve Him and not their own bellies.

      • Ambulance Chaser

        I’m sure they’ll take your concerns into consideration.

        • ComeOnPeople!

          King David penned it beautifully…

          Until I went into the sanctuary of God; THEN UNDERSTOOD I THEIR END.

          Surely thou didst set them in SLIPPERY PLACES: thou castedst them down into DESTRUCTION. How are they brought into DESOLATION, as in a moment! they are UTTERLY CONSUMED WITH TERROR.

          As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt DESPISE THEIR IMAGE.

          Thus my heart was GRIEVED, and I was pricked in my reins.

          So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.

          Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt GUIDE me with THY COUNCIL, and afterward RECIEVE me to GLORY. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the STRENTH of my heart, and my PORTION for ever.


          But it is good for me to draw near to God:I PUT MY TRUST IN THE LORD GOD, THAT I MAY DECLARE ALL THY WORKS.

        Within the confines of marriage, homosexuality is no more a sin than heterosexuality.

          God begs to differ.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            When it comes to marriage equality, God is the very last thing on a fundamentalist Christian’s mind. What drives the fundamentalist Christian nuts is the thought that same-sex couples now have something that opposite-sex couples once claimed all for their own.

            There’s plenty of breeding stock, which has nothing to do with marriage.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Having their own cute n adorable babies/children is part n parcel of a joyful heterosexual marriage. That is why same-sex “marriage” is abnormal, an aberration n abomination.

          • Ronald Carter

            Well, we better put a stop to marriages of the elderly and infertile, then, eh? Since it’s not a real marriage unless you can have babies?

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Fyi, infertility or barrenness is usually a curse from God for the sin of incest, eg the barrenness of Sarah, the half-sister of Abraham, her husband.
            …….Elderly marriages r also abnormal n foolish.

            Fyi, ROMANS.1:18-32 say that homosexuals hv been cursed n rejected by God as normal heterosexuals bc they hv chosen to reject God n His Law/authority.

            Yes, we should put a stop to such marriages for the good of society as a whole.

          • Ronald Carter

            And you wonder why people want nothing to do with your belief system…

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Of course, just like criminals want nothing to do with the police, judges n the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, the system cannot be avoided.

            IOW, the LGBTQs, illegal Hispanic immigrants n other unrepentant sinners/evildoers/law-breakers want nothing to do with the belief systems that condemn them, n instead want everything to do with the liberal political system that legalizes them in exchange for their votes.

          • Ronald Carter

            The system can be easily avoided. Simply make the decision not to believe in anything controlling, oppressive, cruel and absurd. It’s quite easy to believe in God without also believing in blatant human rights violations. Pretty sure God doesn’t share your affinity with those.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Yeah, actually the liberal political system should be avoided bc it is controlling, oppressive, cruel n absurd, eg mandatory/forced Obamacare, liberal indoctrination of naive students by liberal college professors, selective prosecution of Edward Snowden, George Zimmerman, David Daleiden(who exposed Planned Parenthood), Obama overthrowing Mubarak, Gaddafi n Assad thus giving rise to Sunni ISIS terrorism, etc.

  • Ken M

    Most of them won’t live to be anywhere near 90, not with all their diseases and drug use. Can you imagine having someone 90 years old touch you? What revolting thought.

    This “marriage” is a joke. When there’s this much age difference between two people, it isn’t “love,” it’s all about $$$$. The younger man is a shameless gold-digger, and either this codger is very naive or he just wants to “marry” so that it makes this $$$$ arrangement look respectable.

    • Ronald Carter

      Diseases and drug use? Seriously?
      And straight people don’t?
      This doesn’t affect anyone but the two people, why should anyone else care?

      • Ken M

        Wrong, your diseases DO affect the rest of us, we pay your medical bills for all your AIDS medications. When Obamacare became law, us healthy people suddenly found ourselves footing the bills for homosexuals who made themselves uninsurable thanks to your sexual habits. Just remember, you promiscuous types may hate decent people, but you’re dependent on us to pay your bills.

        • Ronald Carter

          Wow, look at all the crazy assumptions. No wonder you are so ridiculously off base. It’s not MY disease, and I’m not homosexual. AIDS/HIV isn’t a gay disease, more straight people than gay people get it – I don’t disagree that promiscuity is a factor, but since when has promiscuity been limited to only gay people? As for sexual habits, I can only guess you’re referring to sodomy? Are you seriously telling me that only gay people practice that? And how many lesbians do it, do you think?

          Finally, I’m not promiscuous – and neither are many gay people. You DO realize that maybe part of the reason so many of them are desiring to get married is because they want to commit themselves to a single person?

          Wow. So much fail.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            The liberals of the Blue States began to abolish sodomy laws in the 1970s, in order to pander for the LGBTQ-vote.
            …….SO, AIDS started/’evolved’ with the US gay community during the early 1980s n from them AIDS spread to immoral sexually-promiscuous straight people, greedy drug-addicts who shared needles n desperate blood transfusers.

            Like Obama said, “Election has consequences”, eg AIDS = a gift from the liberals n their LGBTQ supporters.

          • Ronald Carter

            Cool story bro.
            Too bad it’s a paranoid schizophrenic nightmare.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Of course, the liberal professors n scientists of the Blue States would deny this n blame AIDS on the chimpanzees in Africa, which could not answer back – how convenient.!.
            ……. The US gay community not admitting to being the originator of AIDS is like a murderer not admitting to his crime/sin/evil-deed/ /law-breaking. It can be said that the gay community hv ‘murdered’ immoral straight people with their AIDS.

            Fyi, there is speculation that Prince was slowly dying of AIDS b4 he offed himself with a drug overdose.

          • Ronald Carter

            First of all, NO professor of any kind would blame AIDS on chimpanzees – not if he wanted to continue to be called a professor. That story NEVER originated with the scientific community in any way – liberal or otherwise.

            I don’t think the origin of AIDS is something you really want to be pinning on a specific group, do you? I mean, assuming you wish to be taken seriously?

            Regarding the Prince speculation, no I have not heard that – and I file it under G as I do with most things that are speculation. I don’t really see how it’s relevant to this conversation though.

            (sigh) “Misconceptions about HIV”, a very easy thing to Google.

            “While HIV is most likely a mutated form of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), a disease present only in chimpanzees and African monkeys, highly plausible explanations for the transfer of the disease between species (zoonosis) exist not involving sexual intercourse. In particular, the African chimpanzees and monkeys which carry SIV are often hunted for food, and epidemiologists theorize that the disease may have appeared in humans after hunters came into blood-contact with monkeys infected with SIV that they had killed. The first known instance of HIV in a human was found in a person who died in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1959, and a recent study dates the last common ancestor of HIV and SIV to between 1884 and 1914 by using a molecular clock approach.

            Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield
            was the subject of controversy in 2012 after stating that AIDS was the result of a human having sexual intercourse with a monkey.

            Go ahead. Call me LIAR again.

            Is that solid evidence that AIDS originated from chimpanzees.?

            LIAR, liar, pants on fire.!

          • Ronald Carter

            From chimpanzees possibly, but not from a man having sex with a chimpanzee which is the lie your side cannot stop promoting.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Wrt the original cause of the AIDS disease, there is a very big difference between the lies coming from a minor Tennessee state politician n from leading scientists/professors. U r comparing apples n oranges.
            …….On top of that, it is common knowledge that most politicians lie, r corrupt n hv little credibility, unlike reputable scientists/professors.

            IOW, a lie about a disease coming from leading scientists/professors is more damaging than a lie about a disease coming from a minor politician.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            From 1979–1981 rare types of pneumonia, cancer, and other illnesses were
            being reported by doctors in Los Angeles and New York among a number of
            male patients who had sex with other men. These were conditions not
            usually found in people with healthy immune systems.
            (source: theaidsinstitutedotorg)

          • Ronald Carter

            Which proves what? That unprotected sex coupled with promuscuity leads to disease. Duh. You are wanting to blame the spread of AIDS on homosexuals which you should be looking to blame it on promiscuous men.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Proves that promiscuous gays who had unprotected sex did not get AIDS prior to the 1980s.

            AIDS first began to strike only gay men in LA, SF n NY in the early 1980s. B4 that there were no cases of AIDS in USA n the world. Thereafter, AIDS spread from the gays to other promiscuous heterosexuals, drug-needle sharers n blood transfusers.

            The dumb-strucked liberal scientists/professors then conveniently blamed AIDS on the chimpanzees.
            …….The big question is, how come AIDS only began to strike the gays FIRST in the early 1980s, n did not strike the straights also.?

          • Ronald Carter

            Fundamentalist Christianity and conspiracy theory is a very bad combination.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Well, b4 Edward Snowden’s expose’, many liberals also thought that govt-spying on US citizens was a conspiracy theory.

          You realize that Obamacare is just people having private insurance, right? You aren’t ‘paying for it’ any more than you were before.

          And according the the decades long GSS, the median number of lifetime sex partners for heterosexual men is 6, for homosexual men 7 (this of course assumes you know what a median is.)

          • Slidellman4life

            Dude, where you about four years ago when SCOTUS was was hearing a challenge to the constitutionality of Obamacare?

            You ARE paying for it, as money for it is being taken out of every paycheck you get.

            For the love of Pete, know what you’re talking about *before * you open your mouth.

          • ʇsǝnƃ

            Like all employee private insurance. Don’t play the idiot card, there are too many in your deck.

            Are you being intellectually dishonest or just a moron?

            The fact Obamacare came with the largest tax increase in American history is not even being debated, because people can see it whenever they get their paycheck.

            Do you even live in the USA? Is that why you are talking horsepuckey?

        Says who? What is your evidence for such an assertion?

        • It sounds plausible, so instead of saying “sez who” as usual perhaps you can make a counter-assertion which is even more plausible. Maybe they are motivated by the worship of Bacchus and Darwin – share your thoughts on the matter, if you have any.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Nope, sorry. The one who puts forth the assertion has to prove it. It’s not on other people to disprove it.

            What is it you expect me to say? That I believe gays worship more than lust and money? I thought that was pretty obvious.

    This wedding should be the social event of the season. After the nuptials, the sorority will head IHOP for the 4pm Early Bird Specials, then progress to Aunt Beulah’s Prune Juice Tavern for some drinks, then on to some exciting games of Bingo at the Cloverdale Senior Center. Festivities may extend as late as 9pm. With all the excitement, plan to stock up on Depends.
