The Ick Factor

Do these people ever fucking grow up?   Didn’t ‘ick’ go the way of ‘cooties’ way back when I was in 3rd grade. All right, maybe it was 5th grade.  Still…..

From Crooks & Liars, an interview conducted by Ariel Levy – The New Yorker magazine.

“I do believe that God created male and female and intended for marriage to be the relationship of the two opposite sexes,” he said. “Male and female are biologically compatible to have a relationship. We can get into the ick factor, but the fact is two men in a relationship, two women in a relationship, biologically, that doesn’t work the same.”

I asked him if he had any arguments that didn’t have to do with God or ickiness. “There are some pretty startling studies that show if you want to end poverty it’s not education and race, it’s monogamous marriage,” he said. “Many studies show that children who grow up in a healthy environment where they have both a mother and a father figure have both a healthier outlook and a different perspective from kids who don’t have the presence of both.”

It always gets me that THIS man is supposedly a minister of God – which God, I’m not sure.

Archbishop admits he’s Gay

Update:  Here’s a bit of background on the “scandal” that enveloped Archbishop Weakland and led to his resignation.   Queerty, a blog I discovered, had this post but it’s the comments that make it exciting.


Well now – this will be quite interesting as Archbishop Weakland was also accused of sexual impropriety.
