>This is bewildering

December 4, 2009

>Falling is love is a wonderful experience. For some, it leads to long-term relationships or even marriage (for the privileged majority).

Rick Warren, the purpose driven pastor, did it differently. He married someone he was not in love with and was not attracted to, asking her to marry him on their second date, because “he said he heard God clearly tell him that this is who he will marry.” His wife did not love him either, but she agreed because “she recalled hearing God say, “I’ll bring the feelings.”

This story, via JoeMyGod and originally at Christian Post, is more than a little strange.

“Through interviews with Sheler, Rick and Kay Warren disclosed that they were not attracted to each other nor had feelings for each other when they agreed to be married. Instead, they believed that God had spoken to each of them saying this is the person they should marry.”

I’ll let you come to your own conclusions, but can’t offer too much respect for someone whose marriage began more a like Britney Spears relationship than a love story. Especially when he, as Joe said, has “no problem at all interfering with the relationships of other people who are madly in love with the person they want to marry.”

On a completely different subject I just have to share this picture of Glenn Shadix and Johnny Depp. Glenn was attending an event honoring Tim Burton at New York’s Museum of Modern Art last month. Read about it at Glenn’s blog. Johnny Depp! People magazine’s sexiest man of the year!

>Big McCain News

>I have been waiting on this, knowing it was coming. Now here it is.

John McCain’s chief of staff is gay. that in itself is not news, but it is newsworthy because he works for an anti-gay senator who is running for president.

Mark Buse is the man. Michelangelo Signorile reported this today on The Gist,

Then I was contacted in recent weeks by 46-year-old Brian Davis, an Arizona resident, who told me about his intimate relationship with Mark Buse (confirmed by Davis’ mother, as well as by a long-time friend), and who decided he needed to tell the truth about Buse, on the record, in light of John McCain’s dramatic shift to the ideological religious right in this election and his choice of Sarah Palin, starlet of the evangelical movement, as a running mate. (Repeated calls to Mark Buse’s office and calls and email to McCain’s communications office in the Senate regarding this story were unreturned.

Read the rest at The Gist .

At the same time, Mike Rogers has presented Buse at his office with the Roy Cohn Award for hypocrisy (the hypocrisy of working against gays while being gay) at BlogActive .

Or at least Buse’s office staff. Buse wouldn’t show.

We even have video (not racy) of Mark and his former lover in their abode.

This is one of the many reasons Republicans cannot be trusted. Hypocrisy at its greatest level.
