12No Shit, Sherlock of the Day: Marie Osmond Totally Supports Gay Marriage

marie osmond

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!).

    Does she still consider herself a Mormon? Not exactly a “no shit, sherlock” for a Mormon to support gay marriage.

    Seriously. A life long, well known Mormon from a huge well known Mormon family comes out in support of gay marriage? Big fucking deal! Really!

    I feel like you don’t spend anytime doing any research for the site. Between the three day old gossip you could have read on the sites evil beet LINKS to and not knowing that Tom Cruise was a scientologist long before Interview, I don’t understand why you get paid to do this.

    This is your JOB. Show a little initiative!

    That was me, anonymous. New iPad didn’t autofill.

    Funny how some folks don’t support gay marriage until someone in their personal family comes out as gay. It’s like not approving of health insurance until you get sick. The true courage is standing up and saying, “I support gay marriage…it is a civil right.” And saying it despite the backlash of those who attack you.

      That is exactly what I was going to say. It’s like the men who say they’ll change their sexist attitudes towards women once they have a daughter. Oh, please…

    • Chaz says:

      Chick, some people don’t know any different. They’ve spent most of their lives being indoctrinated to a specific belief, to shun and ostracize those who are different…. If you look at it this way, id say Marie showed a shit-ton of courage.

      • Harriet Meadow says:

        I agree with you, Chaz. Optimally, everyone would believe in equal rights for everyone else. But for those who are raised a certain way to actually CHANGE their minds when they are confronted with a challenge to their beliefs is, in my opinion, much better than the other option, which is that they DON’T change their minds…

      • Chaz says:

        Where the hell have you been? You had that baby yet?

      • Harriet Meadow says:

        No baby yet. One more month to go on that account! As for my whereabouts…I gave up celebrity gossip for Lent! I’m back now, though. =)

      • Chaz says:

        Very cool…. Go to Toms Tavern and grab a burger!

    This actually WAS shit, Sherlock, especially considering the huge Osmand clusterf*ck that gathered on March 26, 2013, for an anti-gay rally at the Utah State Capitol building…

    DAYUM! I don’t care what any of you mo-fo’s say about her, I’d still Tap that Ass!!! So what if she’s a hundred and sumin years old!
