For The Flintstones And Gay Marriage, It's Adam And Steve, Not Adam And Eve

The conservative Christian slogan "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" first appeared, on a protest sign in 1977, in a rally in Houston.

Usually simplified to "It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve", it has appeared in a few other places since, courtesy of Jerry Falwell and the like.


Well, today's Flintstones #4 by Mark Russell and Steve Pugh has a few rallies of its own – against any kind of marriage, gay or straight. That seems rather familiar…


But it does give the rebellious Fred and Wilma Flintstone, who have tied the knot against the expectation of Bedrock society, to visit Fred's own childhood. Via a couple who do recognise him…


So how does that go over with the religious groups trying to establish marriage as the way to go?


"Helping the nest" is one of the theories proposed for the evolutionary advantage of the existence of homosexuality, as present in many life forms.

Well, The Flintstones has gone and made it canon.
