I grew up watching the show Good Times with Jimmy (JJ) Walker. As an adult, I’ve watched him go on Letterman many times (Letterman is an old friend of his, which is the only reason he brings him on TV) and try to be funny; the result is always that I feel embarrassed for him. It’s just painful to watch. So is this bizarre explanation for why he opposes marriage equality:
There’s just certain traditions that need to be upheld. I’ll give you the other side of it, no it doesn’t affect me, no it doesn’t change my life. There’s just traditions that need to be dealt with. I’m a believer that gay marriage should be passed because the battle is not worth the war. The gay lobby is very loud. I’m totally against it.
In 100 years from now, people are going to go, ‘Who was against gay marriage?’ And I’ll be one of those idiots and say, ‘That’s me.’ I’m just against it on moral grounds, that’s it. I’m as much a heathen as anybody. I just don’t believe on moral grounds it should be done. I don’t like it, I don’t accept it.
Good luck finding anything coherent in that mass of stupid. Of course, this is a guy who also says that Jay Leno is one of the ten funniest comedians working today. Jay Leno hasn’t been funny since Walker, who has never been funny, was relevant.
