LITTLE-- YOU KNOW.

A LITTLE CRANKY, BUT THAT'SOKAY, THAT'S OKAY.

GREAT YEAR FOR GAY MARRIAGE.

>> FLORIDA BECOMES THE 36thSTATE TO RECOGNIZE SAME-SEX

>> A FEDERAL JUDGE OVERTURNSSOUTH DAKOTA'S CONSTITUTIONAL

AMENDMENT BANNING SAME-SEXMARRIAGE.

>> Larry: NICE, SOUTH DAKOTA.

MAN, WELL, THE GUYS ON MOUNTRUSHMORE CAN FINALLY MAKE IT

OFFICIAL.

( LAUGHTER )YUP.

THAT TEDDY IS A BEAR.

THAT'S FOR SURE, RIGHT?

( LAUGHTER )ABSOLUTELY.

OKAY, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?

TO BE HONEST, I THOUGHT SAME-SEXMARRIAGE WAS ALREADY LEGAL IN--

I APOLOGIZE.

YOU KNOW, I'VE BEEN SO INVOLVEDWITH MY BLACKITTY-BLACK-BLACK

STUFF.

I JUST HAVE BEEN LACKING MYGAYITTY-GAY-GAY.

SORRY.

I HAVEN'T BEEN PAYING ATTENTIONTO THE L.G.B.T. STRUGGLE.

MY BAD, OKAY.

ALL RIGHT, SO WHERE IS IT LEGALNOW EXACTLY?

LET'S SEE.

OKAY, SO WE'RE MISSING ONLYTEXAS, LOUISIANA, THOSE ONES

OVER THERE.

( LAUGHTER )NORTH-UL-TUCKY, I THINK SO.

ALL RIGHT, I'VE BEEN SLACKING ONMY GEOGRAPHY, TOO.

SORRY.

ANYWAY, ALSO, GAY MARRIAGE ISNOW LEGAL IN 36 STATES.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )WOW.

THAT IS PRETTY GOOD.

WHOO!

MAN!

I AM REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU, GAYPEOPLE, BUT I GOTTA SAY, THAT'S

A LITTLE FAST, MAN.

I MEAN-- NO, NO, I'M NOT HATING.

I'M NOT HATING, BUT MAYBE I'MJUST A LITTLE JEALOUS, YOU KNOW.

BECAUSE BLACK PEOPLE SPENTHUNDREDS OF YEARS FIGHTING UNDER

EVERY SINGLE CIVIL RIGHT.

FOR EXAMPLE, WE'VE ONLY JUSTGOTTEN TO THE WHOLE "PLEASE

DON'T SHOOT US," THING.

I KNOW YOU GUYS HAVE HAD ITREALLY HARD, TOO, BUT COME ON.

YOU GOT YOUR FIRST GAY MARRIAGESTATE IN 2004, AND 11 YEARS

LATER, YOU'RE PRETTY MUCH DONE.

ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, GAY STUFF

GOOD JOB, GAY PEOPLE.

CROSS OFF, CROSS OFF GAY ON "MYSTUFF TO WORRY ABOUT" LIST.

WHAT DO WE HAVE NEXT?

NO BLACK EMOJI.

WHAT DID I MEAN?

( LAUGHTER )OKAY, AM I AGAINST BLACK EMOJI?

OR AM I SAD THAT THERE AREN'TBLACK EMOJIS?

WHATEVER.

EITHER WAY, MAN, I'M GOING TODEDICATE THE REST OF MY SHOW TO

BLACK EMOJI, ALL RIGHT?

ALL RIGHT, TV, TELL ME WHAT'SGOING ON.

>> WE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THEDEVELOPING STORY OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE HERE IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

SOME I CANS AROUND THE STATEALLOWING GAY AND LESBIAN COUPLES

TO APPLY FOR MARRIAGE LICENSES.

OTHER COUNTIES ARE SAYING NO.

>> STATE REPRESENTATIVE SALLYKERN HAS BEEN CONSISTENT ON HER

STANCE AGAINST SAME-SEX MARRIAGEAND THREE BILLS FILED THIS WEEK

PROVE SHE'S NOT BACK DOWN EVENAFTER GAY MARRIAGE IN OKLAHOMA

WAS DECLARED LEGAL LAST YEAR.

>> Larry: WOW.

BLACK EMOJI SURPRISED FACEFOLLOWED BY BLACK EMOJI FROWNY

FACE.

IF THEY EXISTED, I WOULDN'T HAVEHAD TO JUST SAY THAT.

( LAUGHTER )ALL RIGHT, I GUESS WE'RE NOT

DONE WITH GAY STUFF.

LET ME SEE IF I UNDERSTAND THIS.

INDIVIDUAL STATE POLITICIANS ARETAKING IT UPON THEMSELVES TO

SUBVERT THE NEW GAY MARRIAGELAWS?

THAT'S SOME SNEAKY ( BLEEP ),MAN.

OK WHERE ELSE IS THISHAPPENING?

>> A TEXAS REPRESENTATIVE HASFILED A BILL TO PREVENT COUNTY

CLERKS FROM ISSUINGSAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSES. THE

BILL WOULD DISCONTINUE THESALARIES OF STATE OR

LOCAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES WHOISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES TO GAY

COUPLES.

>>Larry: YOU WANT SOMETHINGILLEGAL TO BE THE LAW TO

PREVENT SOMETHING LEGAL BECAUSEYOU DON'T LIKE THAT

IT'S THE LAW? THAT'S SOMETYPICAL TEXAS DIABOLICAL

HICKORY-SMOKED BRAIN BARBECUE.

THE ONLY THING THAT COULD MAKETHIS MORE TEXAS IS IF THE GUY

WHO CAME UP WITH IT WASA CLICHEED GOOD OLD BOY WITH

WITH A BAD MUSTACHE AND GIANTCOWBOY HAT, I DON'T KNOW,

NAMED "CECIL" OR SOMETHING

>> WE HAVE THAT RIGHT TO ATRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

WE HAVE THAT RIGHT TOTRADITIONAL VALUES.

>> Larry, OF COURSE, YOU ARE.

SORRY, CECIL BUT WHENSOUTHERNERS

START WAXING NOSTALGIC ABOUTBRINGING BACK TRADITIONAL VALUES

I'M SLOW TO GET ON THAT TRAIN--OR, LET'S SAY BOAT.

OBVIOUSLY, TEXAS IS GOING TO BEA DOING A LITTLE GAY MARRIAGE

BLOCKING.

WHAT ABOUT MORE PROGRESSIVESTATES LIKE ALABAMA?

>> ALABAMA CHIEF JUSTICE ROYMOORE SENT A LETTER TO GOVERNOR

ROBERT BENTLEY SAYING JUDGES CANDEFY A FEDERAL RULING THAT FOUND

THE STATE'S BAN ON GAY MARRIAGEUNCONSTITUTIONAL.

>> MOORE SAYS HE EXPECTS TOUPHOLD ALABAMA'S WILL UPHOLD

ALABAMA'S BAN ON SAME-SEXMARRIAGE WHETHER OR NOT

THE 11TH CIRCUIT COURT OFAPPEALS AGREES.

>> Larry: SERIOUSLY, SOUTH,WHY EVEN PASS LAWS?

I'M JUDGE ROY MOORE, I AIN'TLISTENIN TO NO OTHER JUDGE.

NO SUPREME COURT JUDGE, NO JUDGEJUDY, NO JUDGE REINHOLD.

NO JUDGE DREDD, NO MIKE JUDGE,SCREW EM ALL

HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS, GAYMARRIAGE MOVEMENT, G.M.M., IT'S

JUST A MATTER OF TIME.

FOR EXAMPLE, IT DIDN'T GET MORERACIST THAN ALABAMA GOVERNOR

GEORGE WALLACE.

>> I SAY SEGREGATION NOW,SEGREGATION TOMORROW, AND

SEGREGATION FOREVER.

>> Larry: I MEAN, THIS GUY WHOCOULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE AGAINST

INTEGRATION EVENTUALLY REALIZEDHE WAS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF

HISTORY.

>> ONE TIME I BELIEVED INSEGREGATION.

THAT WAS WRONG. WE SHOULDN'TSEGREGATE AMERICAN

CITIZENS FROM ONE ANOTHER. RACE,COLOR OR RELIGION.

>> Larry: YOU KNOW WHAT PHRASEDIDN'T EXIST-- YEAH, GO AHEAD,

IF YOU WANT TO APPLAUD

( APPLAUSE ).

>> Larry: ABSOLUTELY.

YOU KNOW WHAT PHRASE DIDN'TEXIST IN 1963?

REFORMED RACIST ALABAMAGOVERNOR.

OKAY?

NOW, LOOK, I KNOW THE STRUGGLE--STRUGGLE-- THE STRUGGLE FOR

BLACK CIVIL RIGHTS IS NOT QUITETHE SAME AS THE STRUGGLE FOR

GAY CIVIL RIGHTS BUT I THINK WECAN AGREE IN BOTH STRUGGLES

THERE HAS PLENTY OF SINISTER (BLEEP ) FROM THE OTHER SIDE TO

KEEP THE TIDE FROM ROLLINGFORWARD BUT THE TIDE IS ROLLING

FORWARD AND ULTIMATELY THOSETACTICS NEVER WORK.

ROLL TIDE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Larry: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE'RE BACK TALKING ABOUT GAYMARRIAGE.

JOINING ME ON THE PANEL TONIGHT,HIS WEDDING WILL BE FEATURED IN

THE E SPECIAL "LANCE LOVESMICHAEL: LANCE BASS WEDDING,"

THANK YOU.

COMEDIAN JESSICA KIRSON.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )AND PASTOR OF THE NEW HORIZON

CHURCH IN NEW YORK, REVERENDMICHEL FAULKNER.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )LET'S GET STARTED.

I WAS SAYING THEY FEEL THAT THEGAY MARRIAGE MOVEMENT IS ONE OF

THOSE INEVITABLE TIME THINGS.

THAT'S WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO ME.

>> I HOPE YOU'RE RIGHT.

>> Larry: IT FEELS LIKE THAT'SWHERE IT'S GOING.

EVEN THOUGH SOMETHING FEELSINEVITABLE, PEOPLE ARE-- LIKE

"ROE V. WADE" PEOPLE THOUGHTTHAT WAS A DECIDED ISSUE BUT AT

ANY MOMENT PEOPLE FOR THAT FEELLIKE IT CAN BE OVERTURNED.

DO YOU THINK THE ANTI-GAYMARRIAGE MOVEMENT HAS LEGS?

>> THERE'S NO WAY TO KNOW, BUT

>> THE GOOD THING ABOUT THE LONGARC OF HISTORY BENDING TOWARDS

JUSTICE, MOST PEOPLE WHO OPPOSEDJUSTICE, STOOD IN THE WAY, HAVE

COME TO BE CLEARLY ON THE WRONGSIDE OF HISTORY.

>> Larry: REVEREND, YOU'REAGAINST GAY MARRIAGE, RIGHT?

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> Larry: DO YOU FEEL LIKEYOU'RE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF

HISTORY? DURING THE SUPER BOWL,WHEN THE SEAHAWKS LOST AND

STARTED PUNCHING THE PATRIOTS,THAT SEEMS LIKE THE ANTIGAY

MARRIAGE MOVEMENT.>> RIGHT AND WRONG SIDE OF

HISTORY WILL BE DECIDED WHEN HEWHO HAS DECIDED ALL THINGS IS

THE JUDGE. GOD IS THE ULTIMATEJUDGE AND THE ARBITER.

THAT'S MY BELIEF SYSTEM.

SO RIGHT AND WRONG SIDES OFHISTORY WILL BE DETERMINED BY

GOD AT THAT TIME WHEN ALL THINGSARE JUDGED.

SO HATE ME, BUTTHAT'S WHERE I'M AT.

>> Larry: LANCE, YOU GREW UPIN A RELIGIOUS HOUSE.

>> I'M SOUTHERN BAPTIST.

SO I GET IT.

I UNDERSTAND THE CONVERSATION.

>> Larry: WHAT IS YOURRELATIONSHIP WITH THE RELIGIOUS

PART OF IT?

I STILL BELIEVE IN A GOD, AND IHAVE MY PARTICULAR WALK WITH THE

GOD THAT I BELIEVE IN.

IT DOESN'T REALLY FOLLOW WHAT IGREW UP WITH.

IT'S CHANGED.

IT'S EVOLVED FOR SURE.

I'VE SEEN THE CRAZINESS WITHRELIGION WHAT IT CAN DO.

BUT, YEAH, I HAVE MY ONLYSPECIAL CONNECTION WITH THE GOD

THEY BELIEVE IN.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WITH THEMARRIAGE THING, WHY DOES MY

RELIGION HAVE TO-- WHY DO WE GETTO SAY THAT WE OWN MARRIAGE?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT AT ALL.

LIKE, MARRIAGE IS FOR EVERYONE.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )>> BUT TRADITIONALLY THE WORD

"MARRIAGE" HAS ALWAYS HAD ARELIGION CONNOTATION.

>> NOT ALWAYS, NOT ALWAYS.

>> IT'S INTERESTING -->> IT'S HAD A TRANSACTIONAL

MEANING, TOO.

>> MARRIAGE WAS A PROPERTY OFWOMEN.

>> RIGHT.

>> WE DON'T STILL BELIEVE INTHAT.

>> BUT THIS IS WHY I'M MARRIEDTO A WOMAN BECAUSE I OWN HER.

( LAUGHTER )( APPLAUSE ).

>> HOW YOU DEFINE YOURRELATIONSHIP AND IF SHE'S OKAY

WITH THAT-->> SHE KNOWS THAT.

>> IF SHE'S OKAY WITH THAT, GOODFOR YOU.

>> WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND,ALSO, WHY CAN'T RELIGIOUS--

BUDDHIST, BAPTIST, JEWISH,WHATEVER-- WHY CAN'T YOU ALL

REDEFINE YOUR MARRIAGE AND JUSTGIVE EVERYONE THE EQUALITY OF

MARRIAGE.

>> WAIT, IN THIS COUNTRY WEDON'T LEGISLATE WHAT RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS SHOULD BE.

WE DON'T.

WE DON'T.

WE CAN'T.

OR WITHIN-- I MEAN -->> BUT ISN'T THE WHOLE ANTIGAY

MARRIAGE MOVEMENT REALLY BASEDON RELIGION?

IT'S NOT BASED ON ANY SECULARPOSITION.

IT'S BASED COMPLETELY ONRELIGIOUS POSITIONS, RIGHT?

>> BUT REMEMBER, OUR RELIGIOUSPOSITIONS ARE HOW WE FORMED MOST

OF OUR CIVIL LAW, HAVE BEENFORMED OUT OF A RELIGIOUS

TRADITION, THE JUDEO CHRISTIANTRADITIONS HAVE FORMED MOST OF

OUR CIVIL LAW.

>> THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH ANDSTATE.

>> IT IS SEPARATED, THE CHURCHAND THE STATE, BUT IN TERMS OF

THE LAWS AND HOW THOSE LAWS WEREFORMED, YOU HAD TO HAVE SOME

BELIEF SYSTEM THAT SAID THEREHAD TO BE A RULE OF LAW.

>> BUT THERE ARE MANY LAWS MADEBASED ON RELIGION-- SLAVERY IS

ONE OF THEM.

THERE ARE MANY EXAMPLES IN THEBIBLE--

>> THAT WAS AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM--IT WAS JUSTIFIED --

>> IT WAS JUSTIFIED-->> IT WAS JUSTIFIED BY SOME

WHACKY -->> LET ME ASK YOU THIS, WHAT IS

WRONG WITH PROGRESS?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH PROGRESS?

>> NOTHING.

>> Larry: WHAT IS WRONG WITHTHE WORLD MOVING FORWARD?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )WHY DOES THE WORLD ALWAYS HAVE

TO GO BACK FOR SOMETHING TO BERIGHT.

CAN'T THE WORLD MOVE FORWARD FORSOMETHING TO BE RIGHT?

>> I AM MOVING FORWARD.

I AM NOT ABOUT REGRESSING ORMOVING BACKWARD.

HOWEVER, AS WE MOVE FORWARD WEHAVE TO ACCEPT THE DIFFERENCES.

WE HAVE TO ACCEPT MY POSITION ISBASED ON MY RELIGIOUS BELIEFS,

AND I UNDERSTAND THERE HAS TO BEAN INTERSECTION WITH CIVIL LAW

AND WHAT I BELIEVE IS OKAY FOR ACIVIL SOCIETY.

>> AND I LOVE DIFFERENCES.

I LOVE THAT, YOU KNOW, THAT'SWHAT'S GREAT ABOUT BEING HUMAN

BEINGS.

YOU CAN HAVE SO MANY DIFFERENCESAND I LOVE THAT, BUT WHEN YOU

START VOTING AGAINST MY PERSONALLIFE AND YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW ME,

THAT'S WHERE IT SHOULD END.

IT'S SIMPLE.

>> WERE YOU UP FOR ELECTION.

DID SOMEBODY VOTE-- WAS THERE AVOTE--

>> MY RIGHT TO MARRY MY HUSBANDIN MY HOME STATE OF MISSISSIPPI.

THE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE VOTEDAGAINST THAT.

AND IN FACT ENACTED SOME CRAZYLAWS TO STOP --

>> IN FACT THE WHOLE PROP 8MOVEMENT IN CALIFORNIA, IT

WAS BASED ON RELIGION, BUTUSED OUR SECULAR LAWS TO IMPOSE

A RELIGIOUS POSITION.

>> AND SECULAR LAWS ENACTING GAYMARRIAGE ARE CREATING CARVE-OUTS

TO SAY, IF YOU'RE AN INSTITUTIONOF FAITH, YOU GET TO HAVE

EXEMPTIONS, FINE.

BUT THERE ARE SOME FOLKS ON THERELIGIOUS RIGHT WHO ARE SAYING

ALSO BUSINESSES, PRIVATEBUSINESSES, INCORPORATED AS

BUSINESSES SHOULD BE ABLE TOCHOOSE TO DISCRIMINATE, SHOULD

NOT HAVE TO MAKE THE GAY WEDDINGCAKE.

>> Larry: THE GAY WEDDINGCAKE, I LOVE THAT.

>> IF I HAD A GAY BAR AND ADEVOUT CLERIC MUSLIM CAME INTO

MY BAR I WOULD STILL HAVETO SERVE HIM A DRINK.

>> Larry: WHAT IS A GAYWEDDING CAKE?

>> I WOULD SAY THEY DIDN'T WANTTO MAKE IT BECAUSE THEY

COULDN'T.

THEY WOULDN'T HAVE THE TALENT.

IT WOULD HAVE TO BE AMAZING.

>> I DON'T KNOW IF I WANT AHATE CAKE.

>> I THINK IT IS INSANE.

I THINK IF YOU HAVE A PUBLICBUSINESS, YOU CAN'T DECIDE WHO

YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE A CAKE FORAND WHO YOU'RE NOT.

>> Larry: WHAT IF IT WAS ANEXTREME-- WHAT IF ISIS ROLLED

INTO YOUR BAKERY.

>> THEY HAVE.

THEY HAVE.

>> Larry: THEY HAVE?

>> YES.

>> Larry: WE HAVE A LITTLEBEHEADING THIS WEEKEND.

WE WANT A CAKE TO CELEBRATE.

THAT WAS MY IMPRESSION.

>> OKAY.

>> Larry: WOULD IT CHANGE YOURMIND, IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE?

>> THERE IS NO SUCH THING ASIRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE WHEN IT

COMES TO JESUS.

>> Larry: ALL RIGHT, ALLRIGHT, IF GOD SPOKE TO YOU AND

SAID, "TAKE THIS ON FAITH,MICHEL.

MY SON IS GAY."

WHAT DO YOU SAY?

>> IF GOD SAID THAT-- IF THE GODTHAT I SERVE --

>> IF THE GOD THAT YOU SERVESAID, "NOW, ARE YOU COOL WITH

GAY MARRIAGE," AND HE SAID ITJUST LIKE THAT.

>> IF GOD WERE TO SAY THAT HEWOULD HAVE TO REWRITE THE BOOK

THAT HE WROTE, OKAY.

>> Larry: I DON'T THINK THAT'SAN ANSWER.

YOU REALLY WANT TO GO INTOSPACE, RIGHT?

>> YES.
