Despite NBC's decision to allow same-sex couples to apply for its "Modern Love" wedding contest, there were none among the four finalists revealed this morning on the "Today" show.
When the call for entries opened earlier this summer, the "Today" show faced pressure from GLAAD after the network said couples needed to be eligible for marriage in the state of New York to enter. Executive producer Jim Bell met with GLAAD to discuss the contest and its rules and, following that meeting, "Today" extended the contest deadline and announced that it would allow same-sex couples to apply.
Viewers can now vote for their couple of choice at the "Today" website or on Facebook. The winner will be married on-air October 6th.
No they can’t. Only if the state allows Gay Marriage. Now if they film in Mass, Iowa or another state (I can’t remember which one) then they can have a gay marrage contest.
Same sex marriage is legal in the United States in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Iowa, and the District of Columbia. It could soon be legal again in Calif. and if so, then the U.S. Supreme Court may eventually extend to all 50 states, as the Calif. case is a federal, not a state, court case.
Is it “discrimination” that no same-sex couple advanced to the finals? We all know that they wanted to make a political statement by allowing same-sex couples in this competition.
And so they did. Now it's my turn to exercise mine...CLICK!
LOL. PC NBC reaps what it sows. I hope GLAAD protests until ever single contestant in the wedding contest is gay or transgendered.
hey about normal marriage, or seeing as it is the far left channel how about muslims having 4 wives show or a man having 9 wives show or even a father marrying his consenting 19 year old daughter show.
sickening, get a grip media .no matter how much you push this queer agenda crap the majority of folks think it is disgusting
Hey, I like your political statement - click - and turn it off. If nobody watches the “Today Show” does anything they do matter? Do big numbers of people still watch those programs?
I couldn't even tell you who hosts the show without GOOGLING it.
The untold story here — and the dirty little secret about “same-sex marriage” — is that even the most ardent supporters of “same-sex marriage” are completely turned off by it.
Maybe NBC can have the “Gay Wedding Contest” over on MSNGLBTV””
You forgot to add the “P” for the peds — MSNGLBTVP
I remember watching one of these Newlywed Game kind of shows a while back and there are three “normal” couples and then there was a gay couple, that Asian guy from Star Trek and his gay male partner - and they were winning!
