FRC: "Desperate" Conan O'Brien To Officiate Gay Ceremony in New York

 

The Family Research Council in Opposing Views:

If Conan O'Brien thinks hosting a same-sex "wedding" on his show will help its popularity, the joke's on him. To celebrate the funnyman's one-year anniversary on TBS, "Conan" is broadcasting this week from his old neighborhood in New York City. And in a desperate move for ratings, the host is taking advantage of the state's new law by "marrying" two of his male staffers on the program. Thanks to a free online certificate from the Universal Life Church, he can even officiate.

While Conan might grab a few headlines from the ceremony, the irony of a comedian performing the ceremony--along with his joke of an ordination--is notable. If Hollywood wants to help our movement highlight what a sham same-sex "marriage" is, then late-night television is the perfect medium!
