In an age when it seems to be getting a little hard for Biblical Marriage to get any supporters who seem cool, one has been plucked from the masses. They definitely picked a good one. Their new supporter has charm, abs, a great smile, an enjoyable personality...and more abs. Let us all be surprised that Matthew McConaughey has taken a bold stance for biblical marriage, according to the Political Insider! Sweet Matthew, who routinely takes his shirt off for the world to enjoy. He who almost let it all hang out in Magic Mike. He who is a man who can’t be lost in 10 days (nice try, Kate Hudson)! He who knows how to kill dragons when there is a Reign of Fire! Have you really become someone who might start appearing with Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh?!

Matthew was raised a Methodist and married a nice Catholic lady, Camila Alves. He talked in a GQ article about how he recently started going back to church at a non-denominational church in Texas, remembering church as a time where he could organize what he had done that week, think, and pray for others. He enjoyed in his childhood so, as a new father, wanted to start getting his children involved in that routine and faith. In response to why he decided to finally get married, PI pulled this quote:
We did a lot of reading and talked to a lot of people that had been divorced, a lot of people that had been happily married. We talked to our pastor. In the end, our understanding was, ‘Let’s go make a covenant, with you, me, and God.’”
I don’t find it surprising that the phrase was cut, pasted, and used in their own context. That gets done with Leviticus all the time. The quote is taken out of an interview answer where Matthew talks about marriage becoming something personal to him and an adventure he would be embarking on with his life. I am actually not going to paraphrase anymore because I think what he actually has to say is extremely beautiful, and you can view it here. Much like Leviticus, PI seems to cleverly ignore other interviews where Matthew has talked about when he knew and how he feels about his gay audience:
It was about 1995, I go into a coffee shop on Santa Monica Boulevard, and the guy behind the counter has a picture of me from Boys on the Side (pictured) taped to the tip jar. Is that not classic? I gave that guy a big tip. It’s much appreciated. You know, I have some good friends of my own who happen to be gay, and when it comes to gay, straight, or whatever, I’m for anything life-affirmative. I’m for gay power, straight power, male power, female power; everybody should feel empowered without oppressing anyone who’s different. You know those World Cup banners about tolerance? I always thought that was one short. No, don’t just tolerate me. Understand and accept me.
How about what he’d do if he had a gay child?:
That’s got to be really hard for a child, even if they think the parents’ reaction is going to be great. I’d sit down, talk to them, and ask them to walk me through how they knew, because I’d want to be open about it. There’s nothing in me that can understand disowning your child because they’re gay. You deal with it, you support them, and you also help prepare them for how some people in the world will treat and think of them. I don’t think you can sugarcoat it, because they will run into some adversity and roadblocks.
One reason that PI could have taken the quote to try and envelope such a well-rounded individual into their camp, is because Matthew McConaughey has never come out in support of gay marriage. He’s never come out against it. He has never been quoted as talking about abortion, gun control, immigration reform, healthcare, or whether he thinks the Christ story is factual, either. Keeping trying, Biblical Marriage, but it looks like you are going after someone who understands the modern version of marriage and how inclusive it can be. Which makes him way cool. Too cool for you.
