Oh! I'm sorry:
It's the wedding of Penn Jillette and his bride Emily. Quite casual, very sweet, he pops his hands in his pockets a couple of times, she looks radiant. Around the 6.45 mark of the 7 minute ceremony, they turn to the webcamera and do lots of goofy waving at the crowd and then join hands and skip off merrily. It's very cute!

Sorry for being so obtuse in my comment. I'd always thought Penn was another George Cloony who stated that the only Mrs. Cloony was his mother. The thougt of him finally taking the marital plunge just seemed unthinkable to me.

I think marrying Penn would be like marrying a very active Lab puppy. Pandora comes to mind! I hope she has a LOT of energy!! But he's a great guy, and I'm sure they will be very happy!

So today my fundie friend wanted to know if this marriage was just a "cover" or had Penn been "saved" from being gay....

I was like, "huh?" and he explained that EVERYONE knew he and the "little guy" were a couple...

right.

Once again the fundies never stop amazing me with their view of the world.

Had this particular friend of yours been sucking on lead or something? What would a "fundie" know about Penn & Teller?

Penn? Gay?
You should tell Moe, she'd laugh herself into a stupor.

This is the same Penn who patented a special whirlpool jet, remember?

I wonder if that is just a common idea when any two men work together publicly like that for a long time. I have a brother-in-law who insisted that Siskel and Ebert were a couple.

He heard about it when his church did a video about how gays were taking over the entertainment industry. Penn has NAIL POLISH on a finger, and earrings and long hair. So, of course he is gay gay gay gay gay.

I just stand there when I hear this stuff with my mouth open. Oh and Brittney was almost brought over to the dark side of bisexuality by the Madonna (who belongs to a Jewish cult). Which could be true...but then again, is that all bad? I mean the music is bad, but the lifestyle judgement is really bad.

Has the guy been watching too much "King of the Hill?"

Sure they are. I mean, take Randi for example. Have you ever seen him with a girlfriend?
