MoBach Throwdown #4 – Roxanne vs. Karen

Editors’ note: For the next few weeks we’ll be critiquing dates on “The Mormon Bachelor.” The folks at MoBach heavily moderate their comments so that everything involves sunshine and rainbows, and we think that is dumb. This is dating, people! Not all of it works or is positive, and we shall address it as such. Your comments and thoughts – uncensored and unedited – are welcome, as always. Roxanne Truesdell Al: Whoa, this is a side of Rick I don’t think I was ready for. Geoff: I particularly love being able to see his garments wadded up in his...

Or, since Al speaks the ol’ Ukraynskii –  Mnohaja Lita! And to celebrate Al’s birthday, we talk about gay marriage.  Yep, Prop 8 got overturned on appeal.  It’ll likely remain overturned on the next appeal.  And then, depending on who is still alive on the Supreme Court by the time the case is heard, it will still likely remain overturned on that appeal.  Yep, welcome to the new world order, friends. But how does this pertain to other hot button issues, like polygamy?  What’s to stop polygamists from marrying if gays are given the same right?  We discuss, and also wonder how on earth polygamist “marriages” are cracked down on by the law, when the state doesn’t recognize them in the first place (i.e. – Isn’t it really just one dude who has a harem?).  Playa!  We get into this discussion because TLC (not those of CrazySexyCool fame) now has a new reality show following a real polygamist family.  AWESOME.

And we talk about horrible...
