Host Of “My Fair Wedding” Seeks To Clear Name After Accusations Of Sex Addiction

TV Host David Tutera has been in the middle of a firestorm of controversy since allegations coming from his estranged husband, Ryan Jurica, that Tutera has a sex addiction. This has led to numerous speculations of the My Fair Wedding host has begun to tarnish his gentle and kind persona and as a result Tutera is fighting back these claims. Here’s more:

The breakup saga took a wild turn Wednesday when TMZ reported Jurica filed his own papers in Connecticut. He reportedly claims the TV host has a sex addiction and visits prostitutes.

“After repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [David’s] addiction to sex,” reads a section of the documents filed by Jurica, who is also asking for custody plus financial support. “[David] has engaged in a pattern of hiring sex escorts and prostitutes to support his addiction.”

Now, Tutera is fighting back against the allegations made by his ex. In a response sent to The Huffington Post, he said:

The allegations against me are baseless and untrue and I will fight vigorously to defend my reputation in the court of law as well as the court of public opinion. I believe them to be fabrications of a desperate individual in order to gain a legal advantage in our separation. I am saddened by these developments; I am angered by the lies; and I am committed to moving beyond this painful moment to focus on my professional commitments and the upcoming birth of my children.

The ending of a long term relationship is difficult, regardless of the circumstances that surround the ending. One thing that needs to be said is that sex addiction is real and does affects the lives of not only the person inflicted but also their loved ones. And that this set of issues can occur regardless of someone’s sexual orientation, Too often those that are affected by this are believed to just have an insatiable appetite for sex when there is a lot more involved emotionally.

That said, it needs to be clarified that when allegations like these are made they need to be kept in context so that people stop mistaking sexual addictions to infidelity. We don’t know if this is a case of a lover scorned or someone’s ongoing relationship difficulties being exposed. So whatever is going on in this situation, I hope the media does not depict this story of one the numerous times that they have erroneously described gay men as sexual deviants and why I felt it necessary to add some commentary on this story.

And whatever the outcome we wish all parties involved an amicable resolution for the sake of the children coming into the world soon.

BREAKING – Mitt Romney Committed Perjury – Lied Under Oath In Divorce Case

 

It may be old but it’s still relevent as to the type of character that Mitt Romney possesses, which it turns out to be none. (Are we shocked?)

From TMZ:

Mitt Romney LIED under oath when he testified in the divorce of his good friend and screwed the friend’s wife out of a lot of money in the process … so claims the ex-wife of Staples’ founder Tom Stemberg. Multiple sources connected with the divorce tell TMZ … during Tom’s uber nasty divorce case with ex-wife Maureen, Mitt Romney gave a deposition and testified during the trial that Staples was worth virtually nothing. Romney testified that the company was worth very little and Tom was a dreamer and “the dream continues.” Romney characterized the Staples stock as “overvalued,” adding, “I didn’t place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company’s future.”Partly as a result of Romney’s testimony, Maureen got relatively little in the divorce, but we’re told just weeks after the divorce ended, Romney and Tom went to Goldman Sachs and cashed in THEIR stock for a fortune. Short story — Romney allegedly lied to help his friend and screw the friend’s wife over

Romney has been shown to be a liar over and over again and this is just further proof that it’s not something he doing to get elected.  Its part of his personality make-up.

Romney lied under oath to keep the man’s wife from getting her fair share in the divorce., verified in a courtroom and proven by history (ie. he cashed out of Staples when the divorce was finalized, proving Mitt is indeed and always has been a liar).

OHIO Grants Same Sex Divorce To New York Gay Couple

Two Columbus men married in New York were granted a divorce by a private judge appointed by Franklin County Domestic Relations Court.

Jonathan E. Baize, 31, and Stephen J. Wissman, 31, were granted a divorce last week by Judge Donald A. Cox after a 10-minute, “unremarkable” hearing, said attorney Thomas J. Addesa. He represented only Baize in the case.

Baize and Wissman were married in New York on Sept.1 last year, but later agreed to divorce.

It is one of the first cases of a same-sex divorce approved in Ohio since gay marriage was barred by a constitutional amendment approved by voters in 2004. The amendment defines marriage as solely between one man and one woman.

The Ohio Campaign to Protect Marriage, the group that spearheaded the effort to pass the constitutional ban, filed a legal brief in the case. However, there is no indication that the judge considered the group’s argument, Addesa said.

Cincinnati lawyer David Langdon, representing the Campaign to Protect Marriage, argued that the court couldn’t grant a divorce for a same-sex couple because doing so, by default, would acknowledge that they were married.

Langdon was not present at the hearing, which was held in a meeting room outside the courthouse.

“Unfortunately, there are and probably always will be a few rogue judges who are going to ignore the Constitution. For our part, we will continue to urge them to uphold it,” Langdon wrote in an e-mail to The Dispatch.

What the Columbus Dispatch fails to mention in this article is that the Ohio Campaign to Protect Marriage is nothing more than a front for Ohio’s anti-gay hate group called the Citizens for Community Values that not only “spearheaded” Ohio’s 2004 State DOMA, which is one of the most anti-gay in all 50 states they WROTE it.  The CCV is also affiliated with the Family Research Council and the American Family Association and its from those two groups that the CCV gets most of its funding.

Attorney David Langdon represents the CCV in every anti-LGBT action in the state and in in 1993  Langdon was the driving force alongside the CCV behind Issue 3, a successful ballot initiative that explicitly prohibited city lawmakers from passing any measures that guaranteed equal rights for homosexuals which was later repealed.

Same-Sex Marriage Destroying Marriage?….Ummm, Not So Much

Given the way hate-groups NOM, AFA and FRC carry on, one would think that in states where same-sex marriage has been enacted, the institution of breeder marriage would be imploding in on itself like a dying star. Well, as I’m sure most sane individuals would know already, that is not the case; not in the slightest.

A look at states that have enacted/passed same-sex marriage shows lower divorce rates than in hillbilly “family values” states. From Edge on The Net:

Massachusetts, the first state to legalize same-sex marriage, for years has had the lowest number of divorces in the nation. In 2009, there were only 1.8 divorces per 1,000 population. Marriages also are legal in Washington, D.C., which closely trails Massachusetts with 2.1 divorces per 1,000 residents.

In New York, the largest and most recent state to legalize marriage equality, has a divorce rate of 2.5 per 1,000. That ties the rate in Iowa, the sole non-Northeastern state to allow same-sex marriages. The other states with marriage equality also all have low divorce rates compared to the national median: Connecticut, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, New Jersey and Rhode Island have legalized civil unions. They, too, experience relatively lower numbers of divorces.

Contrast that with states with the highest divorce rates: “Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Maine, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Wyoming.”

It would appear that the anti-gay Christo-Fascist Zombie Brigade is lying. What? Lying?! Surely that can’t be true. These “people” are supposed to be Christians, and doesn’t one of the Ten Commandments say something about lying? I’m fairly certain it does (Exodus 20:16, the eighth Commandment). Since these Christianists love quoting Leviticus to “prove” God doesn’t like “the gay” let’s see if it says anything about lying shall we…Leviticus 19:11, “Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.” OR Leviticus 6:1-4, “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour…or hath deceived his neighbour…and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein: Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty,”

Time for America to wake up and ignore the lying liars of the religious-right hate-machine.
