Osmond Family Hosting Anti-Gay Rally at Utah Capitol

Osmonds

To coincide with the Supreme Court's consideration of marriage cases demanding equality for gay and lesbian Americans, the Osmond family is holding a "pro-family" rally at the Utah Capitol "benefitting the protection of marriage" from gay and lesbian Americans.

No word if Marie Osmond and her lesbian daughter are attending.

    oh well, remember when the Osmond's couldnt' even say "yeah, it's wrong for our church to discriminate against blacks?"

  6. curious: why is this about marriage? having a mom and a dad has nothing to do with marriage, really. this sounds more like a "let's try to stop those gays from having children", thing.

    the only way marriage comes into play is if the Osmonds dont' want gay parents to be married.

  7. Looks like Marie and Donny have nothing to do with this, it's some small-time cousins. Marie's a gay ally. As for her son, she said: "My son was not gay. He wanted to be married and have a family and travel all over the world. And it wouldn't matter if he was. I have a daughter who is gay, and it was my daughter who was offended by it, like, 'What? All gay kids commit suicide?' She really wanted it cleared up." What's the big deal?

  8. I really am sick of their whole "every child deserves a mom and dad" trope. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with marriage, yet they keep hawking it as if it justifies their argument.

  9. Marie Osmond confirmed that her oldest daughter Jessica is a lesbian — calling her a "magnificent woman" and stating that she supports her daughter and believes in equal rights for gays and lesbians under the law.

  10. Alan is the oldest Osmond, and his son Nathan is among the oldest of the "next generation." I'm guessing other, younger Osmonds (like Marie and her kids) may have slightly more progressive views.

  11. The Osmond family doesn't believe in SSM or families headed by same-sex couples but, OMG, they DO believe in the "magic" of their Mormon cult. As disgusting a hateful homophobic position as the leaders of the Catholic Church, Southern Baptists, etc.

  12. Such BS.

    It is a truth yet to be universally acknowledged that gay Dads make much better parents than manipulative( as they all are ) straights.

    That's my opinion.

  13. Aside from having a lesbian daughter, Marie has been married like, what, three times? Can't really see her getting all high and mighty about the sanctity of marriage without looking like a fool.

  15. Wrong side of history, Osmonds.

    Try to stay relevant some other way!

  16. Ugh, the Osmonds. Now there is a ripe slice of Hell since plaguing the Earth.

  17. For the record, Marie is an ally. Donnie is most definitely not.

  21. Anybody surprised? So much for that Mormons love gays BS.

  22. I guess that means they won't be wearing their rainbow magic undies to the sacred gathering?

  23. @Jack M and others.......
    "Anybody surprised? So much for that Mormons love gays BS."
    IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND that the official line is "Love your Gay mormon kids, so that they can stay in the temple and the community, and choose the ONLY path to complete salvation and a glorious afterlife with all generations of the family"
    THEY WANT THEIR GAY KIDS TO CHOOSE THE CHURCH -- and marriage/reproduction is a bedrock element of their silly religion.
    THEY FEEL BAD for "those unfortunately afflicted with same sex attraction"
    THUS, THEY TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE HURT they have caused millions

    You see, they have NO way to retain and integrate their own Gay kids, if the kids actually act on it.

  24. At the Boy Scout National Jamboree in 2001, Osmond Second Generation (Alan's kids) were one of the performers.

    They sucked, hard.

  25. There was no laboratory involved in creating the Osmonds It was just old fashioned Mom and Pop messing around.
