Lohan’s dad not ready for a gay wedding

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.”

[From MSNBC’s The Scoop]

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.

    It’s “dry drunk” syndrome. He thinks his own path is so righteous, he can judge other people’s lifestyles, choices.

  2. Rougelatete says:

    I don’t know where Michael Lohan gets off telling anyone how to go about a marriage….

  3. Lauri says:

    Since when does being a Christian make you automatically against gay marriage? As a Christian, I find that horrendously offensive. Granted, I do not go to church or affiliate myself with a particular denomination of Christianity, but I did go to a Christian college and my core beliefs are based in that theology.

    Wow! I am getting long winded, there, aren’t I?

    Anyway, people do not choose to be gay. That is the way they are born. You can’t control being gay, any more than you can choose your eye color. It’s just something you are born with. I just do not believe that God would put people on earth and then decide it is a sin for them to follow the natural human instinct to seek out a loving relationship.

    So, any gay people reading this-please know that loser Lohan speaks only for himself, not for all of Christianity.

  4. Lauri says:

    For some reason my post was added twice. Trying to delete one of them…sorry~!

  5. neelyo says:

    Thanks Lauri, nice post (and it seems to only be appearing once).

    And I also agree with Kaiser about the dry drunk thing. I can’t wait until Lindsay’s career is officially over so that we don’t have to see her despicable family again.

  6. Lauri says:

    Thing is, I think when you take away all the drama surrounding her, LiLo actually is a good actress. I don’t quite know why, but I am rooting for her to overcome her demons and show us what she really can do on the big screen. Maybe in a few years, when she has matured more. I just think she has a lot of potential.

  7. Syko says:

    Nothing worse than successful dieters, reformed drunks, and smoking quitters. There seems to be a certain amount of sanctimoniosity (is that a word? if not, I just invented it) that comes with it. Not aiming my gun at anyone here, I’m guilty myself. Lose 10 lb., then sneer at anyone pudgy while thinking “if I can do it, SHE should be able to.”

    Sad that he feels he’s too righteous to support his daughter in whatever decision she makes about her lifestyle, though.

  8. Missy says:

    Somebody please shut this man up.His comments always come off really bad.

  9. Bodhi says:

    Thank you so much for not putting up that horrible picture of M.Lo in the mesh shirt! :shudder:

    I really don’t care what he thinks about his daughter’s maybe-relationship & I bet Lindsey doesn’t either. All things considered I think these are some pretty tame quotes from him. He could have gone all out & blasted them

  10. Kristin says:

    Man, I wish there were more people like Lauri, and less like Micheal.

  11. vdantev says:

    Also he’s apparently not ready to shut his yap in front the press.

  12. Lauri says:

    “Nothing worse than successful dieters, reformed drunks, and smoking quitters.”

    You got that right! I quit smoking back in November and have had to make a conscious effort to keep my mouth shut when I see someone light up. It really is not easy to contain myself, but I have to remember that until I made up my mind to quit, NO ONE could talk me out of smoking. I would just roll my eyes at them and continue lighting up! 😉

    However, I did nag both my parents into quitting, both after 50+ years of smoking. So, nagging does have some merit…!

  13. Nouvel says:

    Lauri, Kaiser and Rougelatete love your posts. Lauri you are so right, wth does being Christian have anything to do with automatically being against gay marriage. If he is so Christian does he know how God dislikes divorce so much, does he know how much God dislikes drug and alcohol abuse. I guess Lyndsey can’t discuss his divorce with him because of her Christian beliefs… give me a break, what a fn joke of a father and human being he is..

  14. Lauri says:

    Kristin, that was such a nice thing to say. thank you!

  15. vdantev says:

    Since when does being a Christian make you automatically against gay marriage?

    Since you asked, and not because I support anything the Bible has to say-

    Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

    Leviticus 18:29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

    In Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

    1 Corinthians 6:9, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.

    Jude 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.

    2 Peter 2:6 And reducing the cities of the Sodomites, and of the Gomorrhites, into ashes, condemned them to be overthrown, making them an example to those that should after act wickedly.

  16. Kristin says:

    No thank you Lauri. It was a very sweet thing for you to write. 🙂

  17. sue-blah says:

    Who needs the bible quotes?

  18. gg says:

    I sure hope Michael and his date are at a costume party, cuz, wow, bad taste in jewelry, headgear and nail polish.

  19. czarina says:

    I agree that saying “I’m a Christian” does not automatically mean that EVERY Christian feels the same.
    I am a Catholic (a practicing Catholic), and, frankly, I have no prejudice at all against gay relationships or gay marriage.
    I respect that the Catholic Church does not feel the same way, but remind myself (and others), that the Church preaches that everyone must follow their own conscience.
    In my opinion, Mr. Lohan would be a much better Christian if he were examining his own heart and conscience and trying to be a better person (and father!), rather than making public judgments against his daughter.

  20. Nouvel says:

    vdantev do you eat shellfish????? If you do, the bible says it is an abominatiion. DO YOU OVEREAT?? If you do, that is a no no… do you have sex outside of marriage or when you are on your cycle?? THAT IS A SIN !!! It is a book that was written thousands of years ago.. GET OVER YOURSELF.. and don’t pick and choose out of the bible..

  21. kate says:

    LMAO at his girlfriend’s outfit! does she work at scores on the weekends?!

  22. Victoria says:

    I agree with CZARINA being a Catholic myself. Two of my best friends are Gay, and even though the church does not support this, I make up my own mind with my own heart.I do respect the churchs opinion but I follow my christian conscience and I dearly love these friends. What else does Michael Lohan do with his time besides spout off? I never hear of him doing anything. I do hope if Lindsay decides to go through with her wedding, that she DOES not ask EITHER parent to walk her down the aisle. They have not contributed anything to her welfare but heartache and spending her money and using her for their own gain and fame and fortune. No wonder the poor thing is messed up and confused.

  23. Just Me says:

    well good dont get married to a man anytime soon then buddy……

    if by chance there really is a wedding in the future and he decides not to attend his own daughters ceremony i think that says more about his morals than his “christian faith” against gay marriage

    I dont have kids but i do have a baby brother and sister i helped raise, i dont give a damn if they were marrying satan himself nothing in this world would prevent me from being there for either one of them

  24. jb says:

    It’s not Christian like to agree with gay’s and their lifestyles. I as a Christian absolutely dont support gay marriages but i definitely dont discriminate bein that my closet family member is a lesbian. It’s wrong for any Christian to support gays I dont care what anyone says you are not born that way its a spirit. God didn’t create men to like men and the same for women. Also marriage is a union between a man and a woman.

  25. jojo says:

    i agree with jb. gay marriage and Christianity don’t go together. and people are not born gay.

  26. Aud says:

    Aye yay yay…

    1) The Bible was written by men, and not penned by God Himself.
    2) The Bible was written how long ago? Im Wiccan, but I was raised Roman Catholic, and I was pretty sure even back then, God gave himself a little wiggle room to adapt as time changes.
    3) The Bible also clearly states, THOU SHALT NOT JUDGE. So altho we are granted free will to have our opinions, God clearly states HE will judge and it is not up to us. So while you (meaning you in general) may not support gay rights, to actually condemn a gay relationship is committing a sin in and of itself.

    Its a shame how downhill this girl has gone, and Im not referring to being gay. I used to think she was very talented and very pretty. She didn’t just suddenly go gay tho. Either 1) she’s been hiding it very well, or 2) she simply ran out of men in Hollywood to screw and got bored!

    Just above me Jojo states “you are not born gay.” Well Jojo, did you sit down one day and contemplate and make a conscious decision you’re going to be straight? If you HAD to think about it, you have bisexual tendencies. If you “just are,” then you were born straight. Just as they are born gay.

    They are also finding physical differences in the brain. straight women/homosexual men have a larger right side of the brain, as compared to homosexual women/straight men, who’s 2 sides of the brain are equal. And as I understand, when the study was done, it was 100% consistant. I may have who had the larger brain mixed up, so don’t totally quote me on that, but ya’ll get the gist.

  27. czarina says:

    jb and jojo; While I certainly respect your opinion, what I disagree with is using the term “Christian” as a blanket term that is supposed to mean the exact same thing to everyone.
    There are many different types of Christianity. Catholics, Protestants, Methodists, Anglicans, Unitarians, to name just a few.
    To suggest that everyone from every church should or does have the same opinions is silly.
    It’s like saying “Americans all believe…” what? What political topic does EVERY American agree on?
    To me, the foundations of Christianity are love and respect for other people.
    (By the way, to those who are carelessly putting down the Bible, please remember that this is a special an important book for some of us. I doubt anyone here would do the same regarding the Koran or another religion’s important books. While I understand that some people misuse the Bible to judge and hurt others, that does not negate the value of it–people do the same to the Constitution!)

    You obviously weren’t paying attention to the part where I wrote : Since you asked, and not because I support anything the Bible has to say-

    You idiotic cunt.

  29. NicoleB. says:

    Thank you Lauri for those kind words. As a lesbian myself, and I remember facing very hard choices when I came out. I am now 34 and I have been out since I was 21. I lost the “love” of several family members including my dad, but I finally faced the fact that I was born this way, and like my mother says, God created me in his image, and he loves me the same as everyone else. I also have an almost 16 year old daughter who doesn’t even remember a time when I was “straight” and she is well rounded, kind and accepting of everyone and passes no judgement. Why can’t everyone be like her?

  30. Aud says:

    [quote]You idiotic cunt. [/quote]

    Ah. Public forums. The place where
    vdantev’s opinion and ONLY vdantev’s opinion matters. Anyone else free thinking is just an idiot. /sarcasm

  31. Aud says:

    ^^^haha whoopsie. Im trying to figure out how to make quotes, and the comp Im on doesn’t have java so it won’t let me edit.

  32. vdantev says:

    Ah. Public forums. The place where
    vdantev’s opinion and ONLY vdantev’s opinion matters.

    Ah public forums where people vehemently defend opinions about matters they can’t be bothered to read and comprehend fully beforehand. Let me guide you by the hand through this one, f*ckwad:

    I was responding to the fact that the person didn’t bother to RTFA before mouthing off- kinda like what you just did. I had stated quite openly that I didn’t support what the Bible had to say on the topic of gays and gay marriage, however here are some verses that would lead one to the conclusion that Christians do not or should not support Gay marriage.


  33. Aud says:

    Vd, There are differences between vehemently defending opinions in a mature adult way, and vehemently defending opinions in an immature, crass way. The mature adult way, makes for better debates and truly enjoyable forums. The crass way, which you are way, way into, just makes you look like an uneducated, uncouth fool

  34. Crystal says:

    The bible also says that adultery, sex before marriage/living common law, drinking too much is also a sin yet that type of behaviour doesn’t get the same criticism homosexuality does. Sex before marriage/living common law is actually accepted.

    It’s almost amusing how some people pick and choose what to follow in the bible and then judge people who commit the sins they are against like and I bet at least one of the posters here using the bible to judge gays are guilty of doing that. Unless you are following every single rule in the bible, it’s hypocritical to hide behind the bible to judge gays.
