Craziness in California

If at first you don’t succeed (in the election booth), and the state supreme court shoots you down, try, try again.

Gay marriage advocates are already planning a ballot initiative to try to rescind proposition 8, which placed a traditional marriage definition in the California Constitution.

And on the heels of a USA Today/Gallup poll telling us that public opinion is actually swaying even more against legalized gay marriage, do they really think they’re going to do any better the next time around?

More Craziness in California

An 18-year-old openly gay male student at a Los Angeles high school was elected prom queen.

Sergio Garcia (not the golfer) apparently won many students over with a speech about why he felt he was more suited for the position of prom queen than king. Garcia told his audience, “I’m not your typical prom queen candidate. There’s more to me than meets the eye.”

There was some speculation about what Garcia might wear to the prom.

“I will be wearing a suit,” he said. “But don’t be fooled, deep down I am a queen.”

“I feel invincible,” Garcia said in his tiara and charcoal-gray tuxedo.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that the King and Queen’s dance was probably “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story.

I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty, and witty and gay,
And I pity
Any girl who isn’t me today.

And Something for my Catholic Readers…cutie

Speaking of pretty, have you heard about the handsome Cuban priest (from Miami)?

Rev. Alberto Cutié (and no, I’m not making up the name) was famous for his radio and television appearances during which he gave out relationship advice, earning him the nickname, “Father Oprah.”

Now he’s famous for making out with his girlfriend of two years on a beach and getting caught in the act.

Yesterday, news broke that Cutié has decided to leave the Catholic priesthood and join the Episcopal clergy.

Discuss amongst yourselves. Let the fireworks begin… now.
