NBC's `Today' show changes rules to allow same-sex couples to apply for on-the-air wedding.
After a meeting with gay and lesbian activists on Thursday, NBC's "Today" show said it is changing the rules for its annual wedding contest to allow same-sex couples to apply for a ceremony conducted on morning TV.
NBC extended the deadline for applications until Monday. Already thousands of couples have expressed interest in the on-air wedding, which the top-rated morning show has sponsored for a decade, a spokeswoman said.
"We're thrilled that `Today' show's `Modern Wedding Contest' now recognizes what most fair-minded Americans have already concluded a wedding celebrates love and commitment, whether the spouses are straight or gay," said Jarrett Barrios, president of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
Viewers plan every aspect of the wedding, from the cake to the clothing styles of attendants. NBC picks four couples from thousands of applicants, and viewers vote on which of those couples will participate.

The *liberal Media* is in a Strangle hold with the Gay Agenda!
I guess they like it...
OH MY!!! I wonder who will win the next contest.
Sounds like they need ratings.
Very transparent isn’t it. Why don’t they do a separate contest for gay marriage later. These straight couples don’t have a chance this time out.
Might as well broadcast the honeymoon, too.
Is there anything on NBC worth watching?
Nothing is shocking any more on tv. Sadly, we’ve become soooo desensitized.
Isn't the Today show filmed in NYC where they don't have gay marriage yet???
Yeah, there’s one thing that is shocking. Anyone who dares speak the truth about current society.
So who will Matt be marrying?
I really hope they “celebrate” this behaviour. And then suffer mightily in the ratings.
Yes, but who is listening to *LAW* anymore? We have a President that can be in office with no legit proof of his birth, so anything is possible, in our land of *Deceit and Debauchery*
There is irony in that the reference article is from ABC News. However, no doubt Good Morning America will be pressed to follow suit.
Allowing illegals to flood into the country.
Allowing a President of the United States to falsify his entire Life’s History and Birth
Allowing homosexuals to Marry...
*Look how fairly insane we have become*!
Someone who “changes the rules” when pressured.
Will HGTV allow straight white couples to appear now? / sarc
Frog stew anyone?
