I want to leave a positive comment for Mr. Positive Energy: Steven. Brody. Stevens. YES!

Brody Stevens is totally unlike any other voice in comedy, and he cracks me up every time I hear him. I hope you have him back soon, and I hope his show is a huge hit.

i love brody stevens and this was an amazing 2 part episode but it pains me to say that when i find out someone has the views brody does on gay marriage it turns me off completely. am i the only one who feels that way?

i almost wish i didn’t know this about brody now but i’m glad you asked those questions jimmy, because it’s always great to hear you and stefane debate and be the voice of reason with people on these issues.

but who knows, maybe brody can get straight married one day and his views will change on the matter

It definitely doesn’t make me think less of Brody knowing that he doesn’t support gay marriage. I think he’s great either way. First off, he is clearly not malicious in his stance. Also, he clearly has educated himself on the issue. I don’t mind as much if someone knows what they’re talking about and I disagree with them.

I think Brody also started to bring up a good point but Jimmy cut him off in that they should change the legal definition of marriage so that it never has a religious connotation on the state level. That I think is the best answer. They should make it so everyone gets a “civil union’ from the state and it’s up to the individual to get a marriage in a church.

I think the problem we have is that marriage is the same word for both the legal and religious definitions so there has effectively been a combination of church and state for the topic.

In Europe for example you must have a complete official civil ceremony completely before you have a religious ceremony. Where as here you get the licence then have a ceremony which if it’s religious it counts as your civil marriage as well. So the difference is that in Europe if you want to have a religious marriage it has nothing to do with the state and in the US your religious ceremony can count as your civil marriage and you file paperwork separately.

This was by far my favorite episode in a long time, which is saying a lot, enjoying the Hell out of one of my favorite personalities, Brody Stevens. But then that last 8 minutes or so felt like a punch in the stomach…I literally said, “Nooooo” out loud to myself.

I loved this a lot. I love how you kicked this morons ass. That was awesome. Thank you for keeping up all these old eps.

I would have said that marriage is a made up word so we should get rid of it all together.
