Just read this and weep for our future.
David Wise is at the top of his sport. Hes always smiling among his friends and competitors, however, hes not like the rest of the field. He is mature.
Not to say the rest of the freestyle skiers of halfpipe are not mature, but Wise is mature far beyond his years. At only twenty-three years old, he has a wife, Alexander, who was waiting patiently in the crowd, and together they have a two-year-old daughter waiting for them to return to their home in Reno, Nevada.
At such a young age, Wise has the lifestyle of an adult.
Well, at 23, he is an adult. He has been an adult for five years. He is old enough to have graduated from college, gotten married, started a family, become a world class skier all kinds of adult things. Because he is an adult. He also sounds like a great guy.
He wears a Baby Bjorn baby carrier around the house. He also attends church regularly and says he could see himself becoming a pastor a little later down the road.
Ill grant that in our day, when Christian business owners find their livelihoods threatened by Obamacare mandates and same-sex marriage proponents targeting them with lawsuits, being a Christian is a countercultural path. The culture and the media try their hand at tearing you apart, when theyre not mocking you.
But if being a married, responsible father at 23 is an alternative lifestyle then we are well and truly doomed.
Update: NBC has deep-sixed its own story. Click on the link above, and now youll get this instead of the story.
Im sure theyre thrilled that we captured a screenshot of the original story.
Update: This story is such a train wreck for NBC. Note in the excerpts above that NBC names David Wises wife as Alexander. Her actual name is Alexandra.
Update: NBC arent the only ones who have gone after David Wise for being a married adult taking care of his family. Yahoo Sports says he is wildy uncool.
Update: NBCs article is back up, here, complete with the poor spelling of Mrs. Wises first name.
Update: Sign. The last time I checked, 23-year-olds are adults. They can drink and everything.
If you take both the NBC and Yahoo treatments together, Wises perfectly sane and ordinary life is cast as alternative and wildly uncool in the most important part of the stories the headlines. I see this as media elites once again reporting on flyover types as if theyre anthropologists studying some mystifying lost tribe. I guess some disagree.
So being married and having a child at his age, is now considered an alternative lifestyle. Years ago it would have been mainstream and drawn any scrutiny. How times have changed.
OMG!!! Up is DOWN....Right is WRONG.... BLACK is WHITE!!! We are in END TIMES!!
The wife is actually named "Alexandra", not "Alexander", and she is obviously and attractively female.
Church, marriage, family:
WOW THIS GUY IS A TOTAL WHACKO...! TRAIL-BLAZER..!
WHO IN HECK HAS HEARD OF THIS STUFF, RIGHT...?
Poop all over your talliwhacker from your DATE at a public park restroom —hey, THAT is vanilla, plain-Jane stuff, right?
Wow. The MSM now wants us to think of a man married to a woman is some kind of strange alternative thing. wow.
Great story. I hate snowboarding, though, and especially the half-pipe event.
Instead now we got Julia, Pajama Boy, Sandy Fluke, and Miley Virus.
What an adorable, happy baby! Bless them.
THANK YOU for clearing that up.... I just wanted to barf at the thought of two 23-yr-old queers “raising” a 2-yr-old.
“Page not found” at NBC link
WTF?? 23, Married and has his own place to live is an “alternative lifestyle”??
But the gay ice skater/announcer and his “husband’ are mainstream? After the Olympics, NBC slips back into obscurity.
It is. You walk to another drum.
To the lamestream media, he IS living an “alternative lifestyle”. Not only married with a child, but Christian, too!!!!
What they consider a “mainstream” lifestyle for a 23-year-old man is being “gay” (perhaps with a “partner” named Alexander) or being Pajama Boy. And non-religious, of course!
The lamestream media is outraged that he’s hetero.
They were hoping to have the entire olympic team be rump rangers.
Being married as a man-women is, according to NBC, an alternative lifestyle? Really NBC? Man-women marriage been around since Adam and Eve.
