Norman Rockwell approves this vid?

(vid below)

First the soft piano music. Add very clever images of tradition, family, children,  a holiday, ‘feelings,’ and the quintessential image of a Rockwell painting, all used to not only support, but to promote same-sex marriage, and you have a Hallmark moment.  Ouch.

Yes, a drug commercial for the ages, television magic. The granddaughter of an American icon is using her family name to jump on board to instill into the fabric of America, that ‘the times, they are a changin.’  Tylenol doesn’t have an agenda, nooooo, this is simply business. Sure.

Norman Rockwell ‘painted America’s story for  60  plus years,’ yet I do not recall seeing one painting, not one suggestion, nor one clue that he could possibly envision a girl with 2 moms, as somehow being ‘normal’ as apple pie and Chevrolet.

Ms. Rockwell said:  ‘the definition of family is expanding and blossoMING,’  (up shift), ‘ so it’s not this rigid… fixed picture.’   Yea, a man and a woman in this institution known as marriage is ‘rigid.’

Yea, we get it, there is absolutely no difference between a girl having a mother and father who are married, and the same girl having two fathers who are ‘married.’  Yep, in this reality, there is positively no difference. How can we not see this?

Sooo, the definition of family is expanding and blossoming.  ‘Family is what you make it out to be,’  says the commercial. The innuendo is rather subtle, for there is a lot of truth to families having issues while still remaining a family. Who could argue?

But the ‘definition?’ Ah no, a tiger does not remove his stripes because the hyena is offended. Some things are lasting and true, and while yes, Sally may have two mommies, there is no need to amend the very word ‘marriage,’ which simply implies a union of opposites.  Wouldn’t the Tango be absurd if danced by two females?

For those of you who will immediately crucify me, take a deep breath. If you disagree, and think I am unfair or behind the times, leave your emotions off the table, and weigh this campaign against the entirety of Mr. Rockwells’s life’s work.

Try to judge with impartiality, and note that this ‘push’ for normalizing same sex relations has merely defamed the name of a good man, by trading on his reputation, and using his time tested values of American life to advance an agenda, which I think, he would despise.

And yes, the drug company has every right to make their commercials, but I’m guessing they may suffer for it. But hey, maybe I’m wrong.

    ‘Life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ Who could disagree?

    However………..the post here is about the decadence of TRYING to paint the ‘happiness’ at Norman Rockwell’s expense, which I asserted, was questionable.. This is disingenuous..

    As to your ‘gay’ tiger or whatever animal you choose, sure there are aberrations in nature, look at the albino deer, but they are social pariahs, and are a threat to their herds.

    No camoflauge, mating is difficult, there are inherent problems, and surely you know, these kind of animals are not the norm but the exception.

      Yes, the albino deer is entitled to all the rights of nature, of course..

      But hope you are not confusing the snowshoe hare with an ‘albino’ rabbit.

      Try to stay on point; this is about a drug company trading on the Rockwell name, aided by a Rockwell, putting a spin on a dead man as if he would approve..

          I was going to say that in order for YOU to catch up, you have to go backwards, as in: And God saw that the light was good……… ‘he made the stars also….’ but I have to take my own advice to stay on track with our topic 😉

          Aw heck I’ll use use an editor’s coupon, so to at least stay focused: Male and female created he them.

          You got me arcH-

          I must be mistaken. I always thought there were only humans known as men and women, male and female.

          ‘Male and female’ referred to mankind. Again, goes to our topic of the day, as there is an order for a correct union.

          I suppose there are quite a few of ‘its’ walking around eh, neither male nor female. You will always be 5 steps behind arcH without truth in your pocket, available freely courtesy of God’s word.

      A more accurate metaphor might have been, “a dirty thumb on a sucked baby,” but somehow, that just sounded perverted.

    I see what you did here…but as I look back over all the artwork that has ever been created, I cannot think of a single piece where the artist depicted “love” as being between two men or two women. At least none come to mind that are considered to be well liked and expensive. Nice post.

        Sorry, should have cleared that up…”I see what you did here” by using Rockwell’s painting as a basis point…

        but I would like to add…all of art is a history of the love between a man and a woman.

        That sounds like an opinion, rather than a fact – who said it, and why should anyone believe them? Besides, no one I know says there’s no god, they say that there is NO EVIDENCE that there is a god – if you have some that is extraneous from the circular reasoning of the Bible, by all means – as I’ve begged ColorStorm – trot it out —
