The League's Jon Lajoie Paid To Oppose Same-Sex Marriage But Finds It Difficult

Taco from The League may have recently become independently wealthy; however, the actor who portrays the character on FX’s hit comedy, Jon Lajoie, is still willing to do just about anything for money. This includes taping an overly humorous video in ‘support’ of a ban on same-sex marriage. Note: this is a comedy video, not a political tape, so please watch it before you take a stance.

Before you get all freaked out about Lajoie’s political ideas, the video plays on the idea that those opposed to gay marriage really don’t have much of a political argument, by letting the actor go into grander and grander explanations about why same-sex marriage is a ‘silly’ institution. The whole thing culminates in pot shots at Jesus Christ, discussions about dog pee, dolla dolla bills y'all, an exasperated cameraman and the following argument:

“Oh, I got this. Trust Me. Gay, lesbian and bisexual teens are five times more likely to commit suicide than their heterosexual counterparts. If we legalize same sex marriage, those same teens may eventually feel less ostracized from society, possibly causing their suicide rates to drop, hence contributing to the overpopulation of the planet. Which, in turn, is causing global warming.”

There are certainly simpler means of supporting same-sex marriage, but I don’t know if I’ve seen any that are funnier. So take one from the good ‘ol JC (that's Jesus Christ and not a weird way to abbreviate Lajoie) and love thy neighbor, or at least treat thy neighbor as the legitimate human being he or she is.
