'Today' OKs Gay Weddings
Broadcasting and Cable ^ | 06/27/05 | Broadcasting and Cable

'Today' OKs Gay Weddings Gay marriage may still be a subject of hot debate elsewhere in the country, but NBC's Today show has decided, with some outside prodding, where it stands: Same-sex vows are fine with them. For six years, the show has been running a series that offers an on-air wedding to couples willing to let viewers help select details down to the honeymoon location. One stipulation: “This opportunity is open only to currently engaged couples consisting of a male and a female.”

After inquiries from gay-rights activists and an article last week in The Advocate, the policy was changed at week's end. A Today spokeswoman explains that the show has always strived to have the winning couple get legally married on the show. Previous weddings had taken place in New York or Anguilla, where local laws bar gay marriages, but this year's contest is about “hometown” weddings—which might take place where gay weddings are permitted, notably Massachusetts.

It's the fair thing to do.

Life's not fair. Surely you know that by now.

how long before polygomy and polyandry will be protected by law

I believe Mark Steyn bet a beer on less than five years. The first test cases will involve the Old Believer Mormon polygamists out west, but the winner will be a Moslem.

I don't give a damn what queers do in the privacy of their own homes or bedrooms, it's the constant push by gay activist groups and advocates to stick it in my face that pisses me off.

Go do whatever vile, disgusting things you do to each other IN PRIVATE and stop trying to force yourselves on everyone else!!

Right On!! It's not about hate, or bigotry, or homophobia (there is no such phobia or word) it's about disgust, revulsion, out right nausea!!! Nausea is a most unpleasant feeling, one no one seeks, for sure. Therefore we do not watch anything, on tv or anywhere else, or read anything, that would bring it on!!

Oh you poor misguided soul. Homosexual marriage has nothing to do with divorce, nor does it fix any existing problems involved with divorce. In Fact, no fault divorce was "brought to you by" the same people pushing this homosexual agenda these days.

" If you care so much about the sanctity of the institution you should propose a constitutional amendment outlawing divorce."

That won't really be an issue when more people decide that getting married is no longer worth it.

"Its not that most of us are "homophobes" is that we just don't care."

I consider myself to be "fecal on the penile phobe" who just doesn't care.

You are either gay or straight, there is no choice or whim involved.

Wow, he's an anachronism and doesn't have a clue. The big thing now is FLUID SEXUALITY, doesn't he know that? And choice and whim are *everything* with that.

Homos are out of fashion and transgenders are "in".
