God, so last night I watched Larry King Live, and it was the funniest thing I’ve EVER seen. They had on there, The mayor of SF, a stupid republican who introduced the amendment, some idiot pastor and a hot hot gay boy, named Chad.
Anyways, it was very funny and everytime the rep would talk to the mayor, she’d be like, “What about group marriges, why aren’t you allowing those” and that was like the ONLY thing she said the whole time… Well that and saying that she was “Following the law”. She also said that the courts were stupid. Only in like 100 times more words!
The pastor was an idiot and everyone kept getting on him about seperation of church and state, and he just didn’t seem to get that idea, because everytime they talked to him he was like, “The bible says” or “God did this” or “Thye’re sinners, theywon’t get into heaven” To which Larry King said, “What if they don’t want into heaven, shouldn’t we let them get married while they are here on earth”.. That was a really good come back I thought.
The homo was kinda quiet, but really cute. And when he did speak he had really good points. No one could really rebut him…
I think this little snipit is REALLY good:
KING: All right, John, let me — let me move to other members of the panel. We have four members of the panel. I want to get everyone in. John, what do you say to those who say, What about Chad and the love of his life being together? Isn’t that better than, say, the heterosexual marriage where one of the partners cheats? Who is contributing more to the moral decay of the society, the adulterous husband with the female wife or the loving gay couple who don’t do that?
MACARTHUR: Yes, well, you’re asking me to do something I really can’t do, and make a judgment on which sin is better or worse than the other. We’ve suffered in this country from adultery, divorce, the abuse of children, pedophilia, you name it. I’m not going to classify those in rank. They’re sins, and they destroy the family. KING: And homosexuality is…
MACARTHUR: And homosexuality…
KING: … a sin to you.
MACARTHUR: Yes. And…
KING: Therefore, it’s a choice.
MACARTHUR: It’s a choice you make. It’s a sinful choice.
KING: Did you make a choice to be heterosexual?
MACARTHUR: I don’t think I had to make a choice to be heterosexual. I think that’s a natural thing.
KING: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. In other words, one is a choice and one is not?
KING: So he was unlucky and you’re…
MACARTHUR: Because — because you’re not talking about — because it’s natural to be heterosexual. That’s built…
KING: What do you mean by natural?
MACARTHUR: Well, I mean, that’s the way God made us. That’s the normal…
KING: But if he doesn’t feel that way, what is he, then? He’s not a sinner. It wasn’t his decision.
MACARTHUR: Yes, I think it was his decision.
ALLEN: I would love, absolutely love for the pastor to point out for me when in my life I made that decision because I have to tell you, it caused a lot of pain in my family. It caused a lot of pain to me. It’s a very, very tough thing that I had to go through. I don’t remember making that decision. If I did, maybe can you point it out, but that wasn’t the case for me.
ALLEN: It’s who I am. You also said that it was in the fabric of the human being that — to understand that marriage was between a man and a woman and that’s what family was. It must not be because it’s not in the fabric of what who I am. It’s not the way I see it. I think families come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
MACARTHUR: Well, let me respond this way, Chad, and say it had to be in the fabric of humanity or you wouldn’t be here.
ALLEN: I believe that reproduction is. I’ll give you that. I absolutely believe that reproduction is. However, I think family, the definition of family and the definition of reproduction are very, very different things.

It really was a good debate. And I was switching between that and the debate over exporting jobs in congress, which was also a good job. Apparently Bush wants to make McDonald type jobs a “manufacturing” job so that he can inflate the number of “manyfacturing” jobs in the US, since we have had the greatest loss during his presidency. The two democrats that were talking about it called it, “Traditional Manufacturing” and “McManufacturing”.
Speaking of McDonalds, did you all know that they also own Fazolis and Boston Market. Crazyness I do say! So now we can’t eat there anymore either. 🙁 Oh well. Not like I ate there alot anyways.
Anyways, before I did all of that, I wrote the first half of my second 1600 word paper. It’s going much better then the first paper, and I should be able to easily finish it tonight. Hopefully I’ll do as good on this one as I did on the last one. I’d like to get an A in that class… So far I’m on track to do that… I’ve got 22 out of the possible 25 points in there.
Umm, I didn’t do much else yesterday. My life is pretty boring as of late, same old stuff going on.
Though, I AM going to Cali in less then 9 days! Woot!
Anyways. I should go work now.
