The California Man Who Marries a Dog Story Looks Like a Hoax to Me

The California Man Who Marries a Dog Story Looks Like a Hoax to Me (Feb. 10, 2014)

Keith Howe sent me a link to a story that was originally posted at the National Report web site titled, “California Allows First-Ever State Recognized Human-Animal Marriage“.

The National Report web site frames the photos of Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin at the top of every page. I have no idea what role they play with that web site. .

The man marries dog article is re posted further below.

This article has been re posted ad nauseam all over the internet. However, I did not find one web site who questioned its validity, yet there are so many holes in the story, it immediately struck me that he whole thing is a hoax. The first oddity noticed was when I looked for the date of its original publication – there was none. The only thing it showed at the top of the article was: “Posted about 2 months ago”. Huh?

So let’s look at the story more carefully:

First, there is no official from the State of California, such as the Secretary of State, verifying that a marriage between a man and a dog is legal in California. You only have the author of the article, supposedly a guy named “Darius Rubics” stating that some odd wording in the “… book of California’s State Laws and Regulations,,, ” of 1850 legally validates the marriage between a man and a dog; where he quotes: ” According to article 155, paragraph 10...”


Well, first I want to read it myself to verify his statement, but he provides no link to that supposed article and paragraph, so I have no way to check if it’s legitimate.

Second, the California Constitution was ratified in 1849, not 1850.

Third, The photo supplied with the story shows what look like TWO guys in religious clothing, but the article only quotes ONE of these guys, the “Rev. Father McHale” of the Presidio Chapel (former Army base where Col. Michael Aquino used to work).

I suppose “Father McHale” is the guy with the beard holding the book, but when I made an enlarged crop of these two “priests,” I see telltale signs of PhotoShop trickery. It looks to me like the guy with the beard was superimposed into the scene. It doesn’t look real: the depth of field between the guy with the beard and the guy behind him doesn’t look normal at all. The skin tone between these two guy is too different, considering that they were supposedly standing in the same light, right next to each other. And the collar of “Father McHale” doesn’t look right either. It looks like the white part of the collar and the white cross on his chest were PhotoShopped onto his clothing. They look too white and too bright. Because the dog’s face projects over the front of “Father McHale’s” left leg, you’re suppose to think it’s real, but it’s easy to use a black background to superimpose the dog’s face over it.

Fourth, the photo isn’t framed properly for an article that’s going to go viral around the world and be re posted to a gazillion blogs. The right side of “Father McHale” body is cutoff? No, no, no, I don’t think so. This photo is a PhotoShop creation in my opinion. The only guy who was actually at the scene is the younger looking “priest” who was photographed in other photos taken at the event.

I did a Zaba Serach of the name “Father McHale” and the Presidio Chapel in San Francisco and nothing came up. I went to the Presidio Chapel web site and could find no mention of the name of “Father McHale.” The only articles that come up when I did a Google search for “Father McHale” is this one article. The guy doesn’t exist. We’re being played. .

I also don’t believe one word of the ridiculous narrative being presented in the story. It’s too contrived and obviously intended to rile people up.

The author, Darius Rubics, is suppose to be a winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and a Peabody Award according to his article, but when I went to the Pulitzer Prize web site,, and put the name of “Darius Rubics” into their search engine, it came up “nothing found.” So maybe the Pulitzer Prize search engine can’t come up with a hit on the name of a former Pulitzer Prize winner, so I look at the lists of Journalism winners individually:

A) Here is the list of Commentary Pulitzer winners from 1970 to 2013,

It doesn’t include the name Darius Rubics.

B) Here is the list of Beat Reporting winners from 1991 to 2006,

It doesn’t include the name of Darius Rubics.

C) Breaking News Photography?


D) Surely then, he must be listed as a winner under Criticism

Hmmm, not there either

(I didn’t bother looking at the list of Peabody Award winners).

I think the real purpose behind this preposterous story is to link the name of “Father McHale,” obviously a fictitious character, who we are suppose to assume to be a Roman Catholic priest (since Protestant clergy are called “ministers” and Jewish clergy are called “Rabbis’), with degenerate and bizarre behavior, in keeping with the Zionist-owned Media’s efforts to destroy the reputation of the Roman Catholic Church, its Pope, and its congregation. Of course, the story doesn’t specifically identify “Father McHale” as a Roman Catholic priest, but the use of the terms “Rev. Father” and “priest” are intended to imply he’s a Roman Catholic priest, and that’s the goal of its author. The Roman Catholic Church would never allow one of its priests to “marry” a man with an animal, or a man with a man, or a woman with a woman. They would be instantly defrocked – and likely excommunicated– if they did such a thing.

It’s shocking how many blogs and web sites mindlessly republish stories like this one without scrutenizing the details and seeing if the story holds up.

California Allows First-Ever State Recognized Human-Animal Marriage

Posted about 2 months ago | 248 comments

Paul Horner and his dog Mac at their wedding on Monday in front of friends, family and a priest declaring their love towards each other for eternity.

San Francisco, CA — On Monday history was made at the Chapel of Our Lady at the Presidio in San Francisco as the first-ever state recognized human-animal marriage took place.

Local resident 35-year-old Paul Horner was the groom during the ceremony. Joining him was his faithful dog Mac who is 36-years-old in dog years. Mac also decided to be the groom but ended up wearing a white veil at the last moment.

Father McHale who officiated the outdoor wedding told reporters he was extremely happy to be a part of this joyous moment of life. “This is the definition of true love my friends. There is nothing more sacred than the bond between a man and his faithful dog,” McHale said. “Now, since it is recognized as a legally binding marriage in the state of California, Mr. Horner and Mac will have all the same tax benefits and everything else coming to them that a regular married couple would receive. It’s a fantastic day to be alive!”


So how could this have happened?

In the book of California’s State Laws and Regulations there is a little known law that was passed as the state was first forming in 1850. According to article 155, paragraph 10, it clearly states:

If a man and a man can get married and a woman and a woman can get married, if ever comes that day, then a human and animal will have the exact same rights to marriage in every eye of the law. God help us if this ever is to happen!

In attendance was Horner’s entire family who flew in from Hawaii to witness the event. Mac had her puppies on hand and making a special celebrity appearance was Alex from Stroh’s and Spuds Mckenzie.

“I just love my Mac so much, I can’t wait till we can finally get back to the honeymoon sweet in Montana where bestiality is legal. Gosh, get with the times California! We can marry here just fine, but love making is a big no-no,” said Horner. “People keep asking me why I wanted to marry a dog. I told them I just want the same god given rights that every person in California is allowed to have. Don’t tell me I can’t marry my dog. I don’t tell you that you can’t marry a 500 lb woman with herpes. That’s your decision. Don’t tread on me. I love my dog and I know he loves me a hundred times more than any gay wedding out there.”

With this wedding between a man and a male dog now on the books, one can only ask what is in store next?

A man marrying a toaster? A toaster marrying a dog? A toaster marrying a toaster?

America, what happened to the sanctity of marriage? Tsk. Tsk.
