Ah Big Bang Theory. Can’t say I’ve watched it. Apparently the show ends each episode with what it calls a “vanity card.” This has been described as being some kind of funny paragraph or paragraphs, but what they do is change every week. It appears to be something of a standard thing that Chuck Lorre loves to do with his shows.
Alright, that sounds like The Doctor explaining to Leela why the TARDIS is bigger on the inside than the outside.
So, let us jettison that and go with this…at the end of every Big Bang Theory, there is something that they post. This last episode, rather than being humorous, Chuck Lorre, the creator of the show, decided to go social justice- he called for the legalization of same-sex marriage.
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #413
Dear Chief Justice Roberts,
The vanity card seen below was written a couple of years ago, but I think it deserves another look. It is my hope that you can see past its rimshot pessimism to the fundamental truth imbedded within. Perhaps it might even speed up your deliberations, grease the wheels, if you will. Speaking of which, a wise man once said, “When sitting on the horns of a dilemma, ask the dilemma to use a lubricant.”

I believe that inherent within the God-given right to the pursuit of happiness, is the equally God-given right to the pursuit of unhappiness. That is why I support gay marriage.
While Lorre has, in the past, stated that these vanity cards shouldn’t be taken seriously, this one probably should be.
Of course, some don’t like it…like the guys who brought this to our attention who wrote:
Of course, don’t get me wrong, I love the show. It is very funny and intelligently written. The characters are just quirky enough to be lovable and distinctive, yet still oddly believable.
Anyway, this is just another example of Hollywoodites pushing their left-wing ideology on the audience.
Thing is, equality isn’t about left-wing versus right-wing. The reality is that many Conservatives support marriage equality now. After all, take a look at Ted Olson.
Oh wait…he’s no longer Conservative is he?
Well, it is wonderful to see The Big Bang Theory supporting marriage equality.
