Gay marriage is a lie, or so says lesbian and LGBT activist Masha Gessen in a viral video.
Masha Gessen is a Russian and United States journalist and author who is active in the LGBT community. She is an open lesbian, believes in supporting the gay marriage agenda, and was a member of the board of directors for one of Russia’s LGBT human rights organizations.
In September 2012, Masha Gessen was appointed as director of the Russian Service forRadio Liberty, a US government funded broadcaster based in Prague. The writers of Forbes spoke in her favor in the past, saying, “Gessen can be difficult to work with because of her penchant for taking non-negotiable moral stances… Although I often disagree with her conclusions, Gessen has always struck me as someone of remarkable moral consistency and impeccable honesty.”
On May 19, 2012 when Ms. Gessen appeared at the Sydney Writer’s Festival on a panel titled, “Why Get Married When You Can Be Happy?” The YouTube video has since gone viral.
In this video, lesbian activist Masha Gessen claims gay marriage is a lie to loud applause by a LGBT audience:
“Gay marriage is a lie. Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there. It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. … ‘Marriage equality’ becomes ‘marriageelasticity,’ with the ultimate goal of ‘marriage extinction.’ “
Glenn Beck has picked upon on the ‘Gay marriage is a lie’ video featuring Masha Gessen. Glenn Beck speaks about this quote, saying, “You’ve already been lied to, and the crowd just confirmed it. Now I’m of the mind that if you want to get married you can get married. If you want to get married by a tree, then I don’t really care. I know where I get the value from my marriage, and I get it from my faith and my God. It is a contract, a covenant, between me and my spouse with God. That’s what marriage is.”
Glenn Beck goes on to question why government is even in the marriage business. Masha Gessen would apparently agree on that count, since she also says:
“I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three… And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”
