Obama not invited when Rep. Frank marries longtime partner
By Alicia M. Cohn - 05/18/12 05:04 PM ET

Although Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) earlier this month said he is “pleased” with President Obama’s decision to publicly support same-sex marriage, in a new interview the congressman revealed the president will not be on the guest list when Frank marries his longtime partner this summer.

“If he and Michelle wanted to come, I would be delighted and honored to have him, but he will bring the Secret Service,” Frank said in an interview that will air Sunday as part of C-SPAN’s “Newsmaker” series. “I would be flattered to have the president do that, [but] it would ruin the party to have the Secret Service. I’m not critical of them, but they can go take their layered protection of the president somewhere else. Not to my party.”

Frank announced in January his plans to marry longtime partner Jim Ready this July, before he retires from Congress, making him the first sitting member of Congress in a same-sex marriage.

“We’re having this in the city I live in, in Newton, Massachusetts, on a Saturday afternoon,” he told C-SPAN. “I don’t want to be accused of having shut down the entire region for a five-mile radius on a holiday weekend. I don’t want my guests going through a magnetometer.”

Massachusetts is one of six states, plus the District of Columbia, that legally recognizes marriages between couples of the same sex.

The rat media complex will be sure to splash photos of the loving couple’s first matrimonial kiss far and wide.

This is a stark indicator of how far and how fast our government has fallen in abandoning any semblance of belief in our Creator.

The Democrats want to first molest the minds of children and then molest their bodies later.

People just don’t want to pay public welfare benefits for two lunatics sodding off all day.

Muslims would just kill homosexuals.

Taking into consideration broken clocks tell the correct time twice each day, maybe “spread the other cheek” is not a good public policy.

In your unabridged Oxford Dictionaries, the word “faggotry” denotes the bundling of steel to be hammered or rolled together.

Mammalian evolution is entirely heterosexual.

 Monogamy is not required for evolution, monogamy is a tenet of religion.

To prohibit polyandry and polygyny is an ecclesiastic rule of law.

To establish an ecclesiastic standard of monogamy for homosexuals is nothing but RELIGIOUS FAGGOTRY.

Democrats live in a fantasy world where fairies wave magic wands over their anus and babies materialize out of thin air.

All men are born of a woman.

If you have to tell grown men that babies will not come out of their rectums, there is no hope for any rational discourse...
