Today’s ‘No Shit, Sherlock’ piece comes courtesy of Marie Osmond, who’s insane enough to think that it’s necessary for her to make a public statement in support of gay marriage. Donnie and Marie are the original camp king and queen, whose brand of brother/sister fun just screams “WE LOVE YOU, HOMOSEXUALS!” despite their weird Mormon upbringing and Marie’s penchant for donating to Republican campaigns in the past, but okay, don’t let me rain on your parade, girl.
From ABC World News with Diane Sawyer:
“The God that I believe in is a god of love, not fear,” Osmond explained to Sawyer.
She went on to say: “I believe in [my daughter's] civil rights, as a mother. I think that my daughter deserves everything that she desires in life.
“She’s a good girl. She’s a wonderful child. I don’t think God made one color flower. I think He made many.”
First of all, I didn’t even realise that Marie had an openly gay daughter (named Jessica, a quick Google search tells me). Second of all, good for you, Marie Osmond, because not only are you standing up for your lesbian daughter, you’re standing up for pretty much EVERY SINGLE FAN YOU HAVE, since I think they’re pretty overwhelmingly waving the rainbow flag (come on, Donnie and Marie fans, speak up in the comments!).
