Denb, that post has been around for some time. It is done totally tongue in cheek.

It was actually pretty thought-provoking and insightful, for such a young person.

that vid was a joke
you can tell near the start by his comments on America being a theocracy with only one religion (which is not true) followed by the jest against old people and infertile couples not being allowed to be married - much less that silly comment about being around tall people will make one tall too. ROFL He also says that there is proof that homosexuality is a contagious disease, and I know I have been in "discussions" here about even the validity of a "gay gene", so if there's no proof of that kind of gene there sure isn't proof of being gay as being contagious.

finally saying that straight parents only raise straight children (with a questioning lilt to his voice too) was the give-away (if the theocracry thing wasn't) that the kid was joking in this vid.

didn't you notice that Ann's IRONY meter was registering very high!  :D

They guy is cute and clearly being satirical/ironic.

Huffingtonpost.com recently wrote about ChristWire.org, which are also doing satire but apparently some real conservatives actually fell for it and thought they were for real.

He's saying one thing, but he means another.  He's giving ridiculous reasons that people actually use to justify why gay marriage shouldn't be legal.  He is firmly FOR gay marriage.  I'm not really sure how to spell this out any better.

of course it's profound, it's not anything MTD actually said.

But, leave it up to Matty to quote something that profound.  His depth of understanding is amazing.

I actually saw it a few weeks back on FB and posted it on my page there.  Even my straight, but gay-friendly, friends liked it and saw the creator of the video's real intent - which was to show the ridiculousness of the stigma and discrimination against gay people.
