Though I don’t think anyone with half a brain believes the gossip that came out yesterday that Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are planning on tying the knot, that hasn’t stopped creepy dad Michael Lohan from yapping to the press about it. And how he doesn’t approve.
Though in May Michael told Us Weekly his feelings about the SamRo relationship were that his daughter, “‘is a big girl, and she can make her own life choices. Then it is between her and God,’” apparently Michael has now decided to be a little less open-minded – though deliberately vague in his comments. Because that’s a better way to get press.
Gay marriage may be legal in California now, but wedding bells don’t seem to be in Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson’s immediate future. And if the couple were to wed, Lohan’s dad Michael probably wouldn’t play the proud father giving away the bride.
“I haven’t heard anything (about an upcoming wedding) from Lindsay, but if she was marrying Sam, I don’t think she’d ask me to walk her down the aisle,” says Michael. “She knows about my (Christian) faith … she just wouldn’t ask.”
That’s not to say that he doesn’t support Lindsay and a possible relationship with Ronson, he just supports her in more indirect ways.
“I want her to be happy and healthy and stay on the right path,” he says. “If I discuss (her relationship), I say that I want her to be happy.”

I feel nauseous every time I hear Michael Lohan spout his “I’ve been in too much therapy” jargon. Considering he’s always spouting off about his faith (but not doing anything useful or productive with it – just bragging about it, as far as I can tell) it seems that what Michael is implying is that Lindsay wouldn’t ask him to be part of a gay wedding because he doesn’t approve.
He doesn’t all-out say this so it’s hard to nail him on his comments. And Michael doesn’t actually say he doesn’t approve of Lindsay and Sam’s relationship or being gay in general. There’s just this tone of “wanting her to be happy” and “staying on the right path” and considering how sanctimonious he is, you can’t help but think he’s implying that being in a gay relationship is something other than the right path.
