It’s a miracle!

The “In Step With …” feature on musician Melissa Etheridge in the 11/9/08 Parade magazine featured this bit of information:

Melissa’s new love is actress Tammy Lynn Michaels, and the two women had their first children, twins, two years ago. “My wife works harder than anyone else,” said Melissa of Tammy, “with the children and around the house. I make the money, sure, but she does everything else. And the older children love Tammy. She’s a great stepmother.”

Wow!! “The two women had … twins”!! But … but … how?

I know: It’s a miracle!

Or, well, did there have to be a man involved somewhere? Because as far as I know, that’s still a requirement.

The question is, how did interviewer James Brady not bust out in laughter at the idea that the women “had” their own babies? No, instead, he did a straight piece, apparently with a straight face, on Etheridge, who also has two children from an, ahem, previous relationship.

At least, judging from Etheridge’s reference to her partner as “my wife,” we know who wears the pants in the family.

The fact that someone in the media can report on this as if it has any semblance of normalcy is stunning.

  1. The only reason gay couples have any non-semblance to normalcy is because people like you make it your mission in life to make sure it never BECOMES normal. Just like the people who fought daily to make sure black people were segregated from whites stayed “normal”, the fight to keep homosexuals as “abnormal” will pass, too. I only hope it’s in my lifetime that the bigoted half of the population who continue to insist that hate of a minority group of people is okay…it is my hope that someday you will learn that choosing love and acceptance of all is the only path to true happiness. You will be judged.

  2. How, exactly, can it ever be “normal” for two women to procreate?

    Actually, choosing God through His Son, Jesus, is the only path “to true happiness.” Yes, I and everyone else who has ever lived will be judged and found wanting. But only those who have repented will be redeemed.
