SEATTLE — What’s more ‘Seattle’ than this? A couple getting married at the top of the Space Needle by a wedding officiant dressed AS the Space Needle!

Dustin Stersic married his partner Andrew Malone in a ceremony performed on the Observation Deck of the Space Needle.

The ceremony was held on Saturday during a cloudy sunset in front of about 40 – 50 people, and all of them took the time to shake hands with the newlyweds.

Both Andrew and Dustin are active servicemen based in Tokyo, Japan.

The couple is on leave and decided Seattle was the best place for them to tie the knot — even though they’ve never been here before.

Brian Daniel Peters was the officiant and planner of the event.

    Has Seattle really sunk that low that a couple of Gays getting married on the Space Needle by a Drag Queen is listed as "you can't get anymore Seattle then this"?

    This is a mockery of the institution. It's alright for the extreme liberals to make a mockery and offend the majority of Americans in this country, but God forbid you say the word "fag."

    The gay marriage is an oxymoron….

    Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman ordained by God not men.
    He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:2-9

    What is the purpose of Marriage
    Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking?
    Malachi 2:13-16

    Godly offspring, if you are having trouble with that question, you cannot have Godly offspring joining male and male and female and female. Once again mankind has taken the good things that God has created and perverted them.

    And what exactly shall those who participate in such perverseness expect.

    For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
    Romans 1:26-27

    Look at all of you “Christians” spewing hate. It’s really cute to see how much hate you can spread over something absolutely beautiful. These two men have been working to protect your freedoms. They are both in branches of the military and they just so happen to be gay. You are all terrible people and should try focussing on love, you know, what the bible is actually about. These are two amazing men that I am honored to have met and celebrated their wedding with. All of your hate and bigotry will eventually die out with you and the sooner that happens, the better. I’m a proud faggot, happy gay pride month.

      You're angry with what God has to say on the matter of marriage, remember it is what God has to say. He ordained from the beginning that a man should cleave to a woman, it was called a holy union.

      There is no hate in saying a man being united to another man or woman is an abomination no hate in that. It is a sin just like adultery is a sin, and just there are consequences for adulterers from destruction of families to illness the same occurs in homosexuality and in other sexual perversions. It is impossible for monogamous heterosexuals to contract sexually transmitted diseases.
      It is a medical fact that diseases will come from sharing bodily fluids of same sex partners in that your immune system will be decimated in its attempt to fight off foreign proteins. However look at the vagina it is the only orifice in the human anatomy that will not fight off the foreign protein (sperm). Thus even sodomy puts folks at risk for disease between heterosexuals. The penalty in the flesh is not just for homosexuals but for perversion in heterosexuals as well. So there no hate spoken here, just a message from your creator that you were designed to function in a certain way.
      By the way you don't have to have sex with a man to love him, curious is there any man in your life you love that is give of yourself unconditionally too, (Father, brothers not included) that you have not in your heart wanted to seduce or be seduced by sexually?

      I do wish any harm to my homosexual friends I care for them deeply, but I stand by and condone a child playing with a loaded gun either. The facts are the facts, more death and disease awaits the sexually perverse, a man cannot put hot coals in his lap and not expect to get burned. A message to turn away from behavior that corrupts that brings disease and death is not a message of hate but love, if I did not care I would speak out and say turn away from that which will destroy you.

      You may hope that I die, but I hope that you live and live a life that honors who you were created by.
      For I am not proud of my sexual sins and hopefully I have learned from them that I may not harm another from my selfish lustful desires. May God forgive me of falling short of His will for my life.
