Know Your LGBT History - Three's Company

I've always believed that Three's Company (1977-1984) was a good comedy which skirted the line in early seasons between funny and downright insulting. It was about three roommates - one guy and two women - sharing an apartment together. The landlord, Mr. Roper, is totally against the three living together until he is made to believe that the man, Jack, is gay. Of course Jack isn't gay and that leads to interesting plotlines and stupid jokes regarding sexual orientation. One episode in particular was the 1978 second season episode, Strange Bedfellows:

On one hand, they talk patronizingly about loving gays while at the same time lauding a councilwoman who called us vile names. The problem with so many wannabe Christians is that they take opposite positions on gays at the same time and then get angry at being called two-faced.

Corsi: Gay marriage is wrong because sex is not about fun

Jerome Corsi, World Net Daily's go-to-guy when it comes to Obama conspiracies - such as the supposed fake birth certificate and Obama is gay - tackled the subject of marriage equality at a recent conservative event in Oregon.

Naturally, he is against it, but how he defends his position is kinda . . . well extremely hilarious:

“Our founding fathers knew that if we went this direction, there was no more moral compass and you won’t be able to explain to your children — you’ll have to face the fact that we lost holding the line on one of the most principle issues in the Bible, and that is sex is not about fun,” he remarked. “If you want to have fun, read a book, go to a movie. Sex is about the procreation of children. It’s a sacred responsibility that is meant by God to have men and women commit their lifetime to children.”

On the risk of sounding snarky, I think Corsi misspoke. He actually meant to say that sex with HIM is not fun.
