Jimmie “J.J.” Walker best know for playing the character of J.J. Evans on the 70s television series Good Times appeared on CNN today to pitch his book Dyn-o-mite which has came out, and said in the interview that he is against gay marriage.
“There’s just certain traditions that need to be upheld. I’ll give you the other side of it, no it doesn’t affect me, no it doesn’t change my life. There’s just traditions that need to be dealt with. I’m a believer that gay marriage should be passed because the battle is not worth the war. The gay lobby is very loud. I’m totally against it,”Walker said.
“In 100 years from now, people are going to go, ‘Who was against gay marriage?’ And I’ll be one of those idiots and say, ‘That’s me.’ I’m just against it on moral grounds, that’s it. I’m as much a heathen as anybody. I just don’t believe on moral grounds it should be done. I don’t like it, I don’t accept it.”
Well at least he acknowledges that he’s an idiot.
No official word if NOM has called Walker yet and offered him a contract. (But I wouldn’t doubt if they have.)
