Of course his rather eloquent take on the issue, suggesting that anyone should be able to marry anyone, would be better if it were put in context. Does he mean adults can marry children? Adults can marry animals? Adults can have multiple spouses? Is he really for complete equality for all people, or is he just one more person disguising his prejudices against certain adults by making it sound like support for Gay Marriage is the only true litmus test for absolute moral superiority, tolerance, and enlightened diversity?
Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio, not to be outdone, jumps in with a post-modern version of Archie Bunker's famous 'case closed' brand of arguing:
"That's the most infuriating thing -- watching people focus on these things," DiCaprio told GQ. "Meanwhile, there's the onset of global warming and these incredibly scary and menacing things with the future of our economy."Spoken like a true sage. What I would love to do is say, "You're right Leo, let's just accept gays can't be married and drop the whole issue and focus on those other issues you say are threatening our lives." I can't help but think that's not what he means. Of course he doesn't. What he means is obvious. Problem is, like so many progressive values and standards, it's telling it like it ain't, in the hopes that nobody cares enough to notice.
