Getting all worked up over gay marria—-Ooooo! A Will & Grace Marathon!!
It looks like it’s only the Evangelical ministers (also known as “unemployable white guys with no job skills”) are getting their pristine tighty-whities in a bunch over the threat of gay marriage:
He has preached for months that gay marriage could be the downfall of Western civilization, but the Rev. Gary F. Smith is worried that the message is not getting across to his flock at the Church of the Nazarene in Leesburg.
“There’s quite a bit of lethargy in the pews,” he said. “By and large, it’s a lay-down-and-roll-over-and-play-dead attitude.”
Across the country, evangelical Christians are voicing frustration and puzzlement that there has not been more of a political outcry since May 17, when Massachusetts became the first state to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
Evangelical leaders had predicted that a chorus of righteous anger would rise up out of churches from coast to coast and overwhelm Congress with letters, e-mails and phone calls in support of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
But that has not happened.
“Standing on Capitol Hill listening, you don’t hear anything,” said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, one of the country’s most vigorous Christian advocacy groups.
Dont’cha just hate it when the sheep won’t follow?
