WATCH: Philly Wedding Descends Into Brawl. Are Straight People Destroying Traditional Marriage?

A wedding at a Philadelphia hotel devolved into a drunken all-out melee in the lobby early yesterday morning, as three guests were arrested and another man apparently died of a heart attack.

A 15-year-old girl staying at the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel took the above video of the fight, which involved guests from two different weddings, according to A police spokesman said there was “a lot of alcohol fueling the fight.”

Color us shocked.

The video shows a chaotic scene in which uniformed police officers try to separate and subdue several guests. One officer is seen repeatedly striking at least one person with a baton. A woman’s blood-curdling screams are also heard.

“Did they just deck the bride?” a man’s voice is heard saying on the video. “They just decked the bride.”

A 57-year-old man, who was attending his niece’s weddings, suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Two guests were charged with disorderly conduct, and another was tased and cited for assault against a police officer. More arrests are expected, say authorities.

Maybe they were all fighting over who was defending traditional marriage better?

    they aren’t destroying traditional marriage. they are drunken idiots at a wedding reception, which has strictly nothing to do with marriage.

    the ones who ARE destroying traditional marriage are those who think marriage is a temporary contract, who run off to Vegas and get hitched, only to get a quicky divorce a week later when they return to Hollywood.

    The ones who divorce their ill wives to marry their mistresses… 3 times in a row.

    The ones who film every instant of their wedding preparations to make a TV show, and get divorced a month later.

    THEY are the ones making a mockery of marriage.

    This video? It’s just a bunch of drunken boorish idiots doing what drunken boorish idiots do best: act like drunken boorish idiots!

    ” …And those invited to the ceremony but not the reception are feeling a lot better today.”

    When I was young in the 80’s and going to gay bars what did I see? Every night the cops were called to at least one of the straight bars to quell a disturbance. They never showed up at the gay bars unless one of the lesbians was being harassed by a straight male. The straight guys get egged on by the straight ladies and it’s a recipe for disaster. Now what state was it that wants to allow guns in bars?
