The Gay Marriage Hypocrite

Glenn Thompson

I recently wrote about the Congresscretin from my hometown recently: None other than Stinkin’ Insurrectionist Scott Perry, who represents a gerrymander that includes the town I grew up in (York, Pa.). Today I write about the Congresscretin who represents the gerrymander in which I currently reside, Scott Thompson.

You may have heard that despite being one of those people who seem to believe themselves to be a Knight Who Fights the Gays Commissioned By the Lord Hisself, Thompson happens to have a gay son. That in and of itself is no big deal. Plenty of conservatives have gay children.

Thompson’s son got married to another man last Friday. Now it gets interesting, because mere days before his son’s marriage, Thompson was one of the GOP Congresscretins to vote against codifying same-sex marriage. Codifying would protect that right from the Supreme Court destroying it as it did with Roe v. Wade.

I bet if you are not aware of this story, your reaction is that Thompson is estranged from his son and was not at the wedding, right? Not quite. In fact, he did something that was very nice as a person. He gave a beautiful speech at his son’s wedding.

I have known enough gay people with horror stories about coming out to their parents to read that and think, wow, his son must be so moved by this:

We really appreciate you all being here, and being a part of that. You know, as a parent — parents have hopes and dreams, right, with their kids, from the time that they’re born and they’re creeping and crawling and walking and falling over and walking again, and all the things that they learn right through their teens and into becoming adults. We have hopes and dreams. First of all, obviously, we hope right from the beginning, it’s all about having a healthy child. But it’s about being healthy. It’s about them being healthy. We hope for safety. We’re hoping that they find their way, find opportunity, they find inspiration. And as they grow and as they get a little older, we also hope and pray they’re going to find that one true love so that they have the opportunity to experience that: Someone to grow old with. So we’re just really thankful that you’re here. It actually goes beyond that, as parents. We love it when they find their one true love, especially when they become a part of our families then. That’s what we’re rooting for. We’ve been fortunate with three sons, and [REDACTED]’s done a great job of adding to the family. Every kid showed up through cesarean section so it wasn’t all pleasant, right! So this has been a really good experience, especially for Penny, to have a new son enter the family! So we’re just blessed, and we just want to say thank you to everyone here as part of the celebration.

While this is a very nice thing for a father to do, given who he is politically, this has set off quite a little media firestorm. The man who said those words in front of wedding guests about his son also voted against something that would protect his son’s new life from the likes of Possible Insurrectionist Clarence Thomas and Looney Church Lady Amy Comey-Barrett.

Thomas wants to go after Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized same-sex marriage. If you are one of those “where did you hear that” skeptical people who refuse to believe our nation is going insane then all I can say is I heard it from him.

Not wanting to trust the thinking of the sanctimonious prisses who lectured us that the Glorious Glory of the Glorious System (angelic choir) would never, ever do things like elect a President Trump or overturn Roe, Dems in Congress moved quickly to protect Obergfell. Despite the efforts to fight it by a father of a gay son, it passed the House and is now awaiting a vote in the Senate.

This, of course, makes Thompson look like a phony, a hypocrite, a coward, and yes, kind of crappy to his son despite the strong support he showed him at the actual wedding. Therefore, it has become a legitimate political news story that says a lot about the sincerity of the Republican Party and the effects of their so-called “policies.”

Despite the debate on whether this is a gay rights anthem, it’s still a pretty good anthem about any sort of righteous fight. Perhaps it was even played at Glenn Thompson’s son’s wedding. So the last word goes to Queen.
