Congressman Barney Frank weds in same-sex marriage
Reuters ^ | July 7, 2012 | Tim McLaughlin

(Reuters) - U.S. Democratic Representative Barney Frank wed his longtime partner, James Ready, on Saturday, becoming the first sitting congressman to enter into a same-sex marriage.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick officiated the ceremony and added some levity by saying Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, had vowed to love each other through Democratic and Republican administrations alike, and even through appearances on Fox News, according to Al Green, a Democratic congressman from Texas.

"Barney was beaming," said Green, who attended the ceremony. He added that Frank, a champion of gay rights and the sweeping reform of Wall Street, shed a tear during the ceremony.

After exchanging their vows, Frank and Ready embraced each other, Green said. "It was no different than any other wedding I've attended when you have two people who are in love with each other," Green said.

Hopefully tonight Mr. Ready will do to him what he’s been doing to us for the past several decades.

(Unfortunately, he’ll enjoy it.)

Please, don't surrender the language. Always put “homosexual marriage” in quotes.

FR’s title rules don't mean you many not correct the PC titles with quotes to signify bogusness.

Did he wear white? He better have submerged his backside in a barrel of alum for a week or so before the wedding night... or his hubby just ain’t gonna like it much.

Hoping they will honeymoon in Kabul, Mecca, or Mogadishu. Heck, I would even pay for the one way tickets.

"It was no different than any other wedding I've attended when you have two people who are in love with each other," Green said.:

Typical, 'emperor wears no clothes' observation; so favored by Lefties; under the banner of political correctness.

Which, for the 'Reason capable'. . .is recognized as Willful Ignorance; otherwise known as; Liberal Enlightenment; to those who so believe.

Thanks. We must never surrender to the PC commissars! Otherwise, our children will not even realize that there is ANY opposition to homosexual so-called “marriage.” Note that I don’t ever use “gay” either.

Can't happen ... words below are from Wikipedia.

"Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., (November 29, 1908 – April 4, 1972) was an American politician and pastor who represented Harlem, New York City, in the United States House of Representatives (1945–71). He was the first person in New York of African-American descent elected to Congress, and became a powerful national politician. In 1961, after sixteen years in the House, Powell became chairman of the Education and Labor Committee, the most powerful position held by an African American in Congress. As Chairman, he supported the passage of important social legislation under presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. Following allegations of corruption, in 1967 Powell was excluded from his seat by Democratic Representatives-elect of the 90th Congress but he was re-elected; and he regained the seat in a 1969 United States Supreme Court ruling."

U.S. Democratic Representative Barney Frank wed his longtime partner, James Ready, on Saturday, becoming the first sitting congressman to enter into a same-sex marriage.

Men living together are friends. To pretend that they are heterosexual couples is silly and it mocks marriage between a man and a woman.

Sexual union can only be achieved by same sex couples by means of sexual perversion that adds substantial risk to the physical and mental health of the participants, and maybe to the population at large. To ignore such risks is a serious abrogation of responsibility of the political officials who are supposed to protect the health and safety of the public.

Barney supported perverts “marrying” for the money...
But I bet he had a pre-nup that was tighter than a dogcollar.

All perverts are hypocrites.

Tonight Barney the blushing bride becomes a real woman.

Perhaps in nine months there'll be a precious little bundle.

This is true. Absolutely, they are no more married today than they were a week ago, that is why there was a tear. Call it ANYTHING but it ain´t Holy Matrimony.

It would be a shame if it turned out to be a bummer.
