Letterman & Maddow Rip Gay Marriage Opposition: ‘Absolute Stupidity,’...
Mediaite ^ | April 4, 2013 | Matt Wilstein

Posted on 04/04/2013 10:08:54 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

David Letterman had Rachel Maddow on the Late Show last night and he came out swinging against the “nonsense” he sees on the part of those who are still opposing gay marriage. He found a willing partner in Maddow, who agreed with his impassioned assessment and filled him in on the latest news in the same-sex marriage fight.

“I am just sick and tired, and I think it has crossed the line into nonsense — this ongoing, politically nuanced, religiously nuanced discussion of gay marriage and gay rights,” Letterman began. “It is absolute stupidity. Humans have the right to do what humans do. That’s it. End of story. There’s no argument. There’s no exceptions. Humans have rights, and they get to do what humans get to do. Case closed. Good night.”

Maddow nodded vigorously in agreement as the applause from Letterman’s audience died down before saying that Letterman had basically just summed up the argument made by the 131 Republicans who signed a brief to the Supreme Court saying “we don’t want government in the middle of this.” She also shared her hopeful view on same-sex marriage, saying that it appears to have become “sort of a wedge issue for Republicans, and Democrats are essentially almost unanimously in support of it.”

“It’s beyond embarrassing when you think about it now,” Letterman added.....

What a couple of maroons.
Then they proceeded to preach that the Gov should tell people what to do.

2DV, you could have and should have reduced the headline into “Letterman & Maddow: Absolute Stupidity”. The result would have been the same, yet dozens of FReepers would have saved otherwise wasted time clicking on the article. :-)

Combining man and man no more makes a marriage than combining oil and oil makes a salad dressing.

**** against the “nonsense” he sees on the part of those who are still opposing gay marriage.***

I don’t see what the argument is, after all, forty five years ago the Hippies declared marriage dead, old fashioned, unnecessary. If you loved someone that is all that mattered. After all, the marriage license is just a piece of paper.

Even today couples are living together without benefit of marriage and keeping to the Hippie example.

But all of a sudden, now marriage is the most important thing two people can engage in, BUT ONLY IF THEY ARE GAY!

I am for marriage diversity.

Gays are for sexual and gender segregation.

It is a cold war.

They mean to undermine the foundations of society. What to they care? They have no foundations. They are shape shifters.

Rush is right.
The moment we entertained the term “Same Sex MARRIAGE”

Marriage was dead.

There are humans and there are subhumans. For over 6000 years we have been warned against subhuman behaviour and no, they do not do what HUMANS do. Such behaviour is unnatural. If your dog did what subhumans do you would never accept that unacceptable behaviour and that dog would be gone because it is against nature.
Humans have the right to be protected from subhumans and not be forced to accept the unacceptable as a human rught when nothing could be further from rhe truth.

I like the name Rachel. I just dislike MadCow. Not because she is gay, because she is too smart to truly be that Liberal without being truly evil. As for Letterman, Just stupid. Overpaid and stupid. Worse, not funny!

(shrug)
Maddow is a bulldyke, so no surprise. And Letterman is a washed-up, cranky old gap-toothed piece of dog feces who is soon to be sent packing by CBS so Jon Stewart can take over. CBS wants to compete with Jimmy Fallon, and Letterman just doesn’t cut it.

Hmmm—humans commit murder,rape,theft,arson and various other acts we call crimes. Does that mean humans now have the right to do these things and they are no longer crimes..simply because they do them?

To be fair, do you really expect a guy who screws around with young interns behind his wife’s back to have any concept of what marriage means?

Hey, humans do what humans do! So don’t bend over the Xerox machine while Dave’s around.

Thank you. Yeah, it’s me. My fingers are about the only things that still work and even that is a chore, but it’s either post or go nuts. I’d rather post.
I can slide from the corner of my bed onto the desk chair and that at least keeps me in touch with the world...which of course is Free Republic. Without you guys, I am just nowhere.
I am very shaky, so it takes a long time even for a short post. It’s frustrating, but it would be worse if I couldn’t post at all.

Well, it’s good to see your return to FR and hopefully you can be back to 100% soon. As to the thread topic, the only “stupidity” I see is by Maddow(does anyone even watch her show anyway?)

He was barely funny decades ago.

I’m curious as to how many Same Sex Civil Unions have been consummated in those states that now allow it.

If they really wanted marriage they’d be using SSCU like crazy, no?
