Rush has a lot of rich conservative Christians as fans. He's spoken against homosexuality. But isn't Elton John the posterboy for homosexuality?

Rush Limbaugh Weds for 4th Time, and Elton John Sings
Rush Limbaugh Weds for 4th Time, and Elton John Sings - Weddings, Elton John, Rush Limbaugh : People.com

Talk about an odd couple: conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh and outspoken gay-marriage advocate Elton John.

But, according to a News Corporation (which owns Fox News) wire report, the Rocket Man, 63, serenaded the 400 guests into the wee hours Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Limbaugh, 59, to Kathryn Rogers, 33, in the Ponce de Leon ballroom of Florida's fabled Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. Sir Elton's fee: $1 million, the report notes.

Amid dozens of giant bouquets of white roses (and very tight security), reports the Palm Beach Post, guests at the wedding included former Bush adviser Karl Rove; actor-politician Fred Thompson; former Kansas City Royals slugger George Brett; Fox News commentator Sean Hannity; former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani; New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft; former Clinton adviser James Carville and his wife, GOP analyst Mary Matalin; and golfer Tom Watson. A wedding guest also tells PEOPLE that among the others was Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

The couple met six years ago, while she was running a charity golf tournament and Limbaugh was in the process of divorcing for the third time.

Sunday morning, a source tells PEOPLE, the newlyweds hopped Limbaugh's private Gulfstream jet for a honeymoon in Mexico, Africa and a couple other spots.

Rogers is a direct descendant of President John Adams, and her father attended the U.S. Naval Academy with the future Arizona Senator (and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate) John McCain, reports NewsCore.

The wire service also quotes the new bride as saying of the couple's 26-year age gap: "I'm sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age."

It is easy to find information on Rush Limbaugh's views.

Rush Limbaugh, the current de facto leader of the Republican Party, is known to be bigoted and homophobic.



And while he speaks to Conservatives, it’s important that you know what he has to say about you. Here you go, five of Rush Limbaugh’s most offensive, anti-gay, homophobic, bigoted comments:

1. Aired a song about Senator Barney Frank called “Banking Queen“.
2. Democrats will “bend over, grab the ankles, and say, ‘Have your way with me’” to African American and gay voters.
3. On the Mark Foley scandal: “In their hearts and minds and their crotches, they don’t have any problem with what Foley did. They’ve defended it over the — over the years.“
4. Openly gay students are “trumpeting” their sexuality, “inviting dissent”.
5. “When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it’s an invitation”

Rush Limbaugh’s Top Anti-Gay Quotes | The New Civil Rights Movement
Quotes are not the same as the full context of why and what Rush was trying to convey or say. Anyone can take a quote and twist it out of context. Did he not hire Elton John? Would Elton John hold up and applaude an entainer if he or she was known to say the word "fagg*t" so many times in a song? The Banking Queen isn't quite the same. It's a parody, sure. Everybody knows about Barney Frank's obvious lifestyle but certainly people are willing to overlook Barney's own lack of accountability for his own actions in the banking sector and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac debacles that he was primarily responsible for, but I digress.

Rather I think it's trolling to call certain people "homophobes" without explaining why or have no real basis of saying that. Just because a person has a certain viewpoint or tries to make a point does not automatically make him or her "anti-something." I'd say the real anti-gays or "homophobes" are the people in Iran who hang people and prosecute for being one on a regular basis. Something I think that people tend to misplace priorities.

let people state their opinions even if it's unfounded because well - it's free speech and this thread was left in the closet because nobody cares.

but your posts below....

Guess you have no proof then.

Figures.
Clearly - you are trolling us.
Clearly - you want to cause drama for your depraved amusement.

misplaced priorities... right. comical.

and - using gay reference to insult somebody is usually the one with homophobic view. if not... a poor character
