Ann Romney Invited To Officiate Gay Wedding On 'Modern Family'
August 30, 2012 at 12:30 PM

 Hmm.  She's against gay marriage but her favorite show involves a gay couple.  Thoughts?


After revealing to "Entertainment Tonight" that "Modern Family" is her favorite show, Ann Romney received a personal invitation from show co-creator Steve Levitan to marry Mitch and Cam, the lovable gay couple (played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet) on the hit ABC comedy series.

"Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show. We'll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam's wedding. As soon as it's legal," Levitan later tweeted.

Of course, the offer was sarcastic and a jab at the Romney's public stance on their opposition to gay marriage.

The Romney's will contribute $4.13 million over the next two years to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—which largely funded Proposition 8 in California, making gay marriage illegal in the state.

The Obamas also cite "Modern Family" as one of their favorite shows, but shouldn't receive as snarky of a response from the show's creator, as The President came out in June in support of gay marriage—but has yet to propose legislation on the matter.

The Obamas and Romneys will have a good bit to look forward to in the new season of "Modern Family," including Gloria's (played by Sofia Vergara) pregnancy and, of course, the wedding.

    She might be against Gay Marriage, but not agains Gay Partnerships. Doesn't make her anti Gay. Sounds weird I know, but doesn't mean they hate people, just that they don't want what has been known as Marriage to be the same for gays. They usually want them to have partnertships, not just die.

    That is where alot of the confusion lies. It isn't that people are "anti gay" just want them to have something other than the word Marriage. Not saying they are right, but they don't hate gays ( most ) is all I am saying. 

    Not saying which way I agree or disagree. And, Her husband is Mormom, because he donates to mormoms also doesn't make him anti gay.
