Regarding What the ‘Bachelor’ Said About Gays…

The Bachelor is a TV show that involves one man having to choose his future wife from a group of other a dozen women. All of his dates with these women are aired on television, emotional breakdowns are played up in order to put an emphasis on the drama. And then, after he goes on dates with all the women, he is forced to eliminate them, one by one, as if these were items in a scavenger hunt on a journey to the ultimate prize. He meets with their families, gives all of them hope that they might end up with this wonderful stranger for the rest of their lives, only for all but one of them to have their hearts torn to shreds for millions of people to see.

So the obvious takeaway here is having a gay Bachelor would somehow *ruin* this sacred institution.
