Jeremy Irons Earns Two Minutes' Hate

Jeremy Irons expressed doubts about gay marriage in a recent interview.

Poor thing. I'm sure the two minutes' internet hate has begun and he's probably already been bullied into an apology. Two things surprise me in this clip. 1) An actor thinking an issue through and expressing a little hesitation, however mildly (and ultimately incoherently). 2) That Jeremy Irons isn't gay.

Irons will certainly catch hell for comparing gay marriage to incest, but before anyone tells you that's crazy talk, I'll just point out a few items.

A Political Science Professor at Columbia is defending himself against incest charges not by innocence -- he admits a three year sexual relationship with his own daughter-- but on gay marriage grounds. 

(Every time I think Columbia can't sink any lower I am wrong.)

Here are a few other links, posted without (much!) comment as simply signs of the times.

Legacy and Bergen say they are primarily upset about the counseling Shaffer offers. They say he urges students who have homosexual feelings to lead a life of celibacy.
