Marie Osmond Supports Marriage Equality

Jim Burroway

April 1st, 2013

Ahead of last week’s Supreme Court arguments in two same-sex marriage cases, Alan Osmond led a rally against marriage equality in Utah. But this weekend, Marie Osmand’s voice proved louder.

She says that her lesbian daughter “deserves everything that she desires in life.”

I’ve always liked Marie Osmond. Thank you Marie for giving one more reason to like you.

What I love about this message – well one of the things I love about it – is that Marie is clearly talking about civil marriage rights. At no point does she argue her own religion should change it’s point of view on what constitutes a marriage; she simply wants equality for her child.

Hooray for Marie! I agree Pacal, I’ve always liked her.

I am included from time to time in a group of “Mormon ladies,” and I have to say… they’re just the nicest people. They know I’m not a conversion prospect, but they’re still nice to me. I have the feeling that, just like in the Catholic church, what their leaders say, ostensibly on their behalf, is very different from how they live their lives in the here and now. In other words, there is lots of hope! As long as nobody starts screaming!

Maybe the next time we are at lunch, or certainly if the subject ever comes up, I will mention Marie. That would be cool!

What I want to hear from Alan and Suzanne Osmond is what they will do when one of their quiver of children comes out to them.

It’s funny they didn’t have a family pow-wow with the other Osmonds and settle on a clear-cut message and avoid this mess. But this was political posturing. Why? Why would anyone think the Osmonds needed any more publicity especially with such a hot topic.

And, by the way, when the this Osmond-sponsored rally at the Utah State Capitol recited the Pledge of Allegiance, it was all the pro-gay people in the galleries above them that emphasized (shouted) these words: “…and Justice For All.”

That had to rattle some of those Osmond teeth.
