Pants-on-fire from Liberty Counsel


The headline reads Liberty Counsel Successfully Defends Christian Business Owner over Same-Sex Wedding. Not exactly. The first sentence reads “Liberty Counsel has successfully defended a Pennsylvania banquet hall that refused to host a same-sex wedding because of the owner’s Christian beliefs.” Again, not exactly.

You would think that they won some sort of  license-to-discriminate suit. Liberty Counsel knows that folks who follow their antics are not terribly curious. Critical thinking skills? Well … who am I to judge? Will these folks read the piece in its entirety and understand it? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Yet another deceitful money-beg from NOM

In a blog post and email blast National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown writes:
With the Supreme Court having considered five pending marriage cases in conference just yesterday, we expect any day that they could announce which of these cases they will be taking up in the new year, and NOM will be ready to help give marriage the legal defense it needs and deserves.

Delgaudio confronts 'Gay Bill of Special Rights' in Michigan with 'Pedophilia' survey

Eugene Delgaudio
Loudoun CountyVirginia, Board of Supervisors
Eugene Delgaudio, a fundamentalist Catholic extremist, is not to be taken lightly. While Delgaudio is clearly an unhinged crackpot, donations to his hate group, Public Advocate of the US, increased by nearly 70% in 2012. Apparently money from some substantial donors finds its way to an unhinged crackpot. Delgaudio is also a member of the Knights of Columbus which might be a source at some level.

Delgaudio's current obsession is the state of Michigan. According to Delgaudio:
Public Advocate's efforts in Michigan are in response to the Homosexual Lobby's stated goal of taking over the State House in order to pass a local version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights.
Did I mention that this guy is unhinged? Delgaudio also likes push surveys. According to him:

An open letter to Mr. LaBarbera from a gay Jew

Dear Mr. LaBarbera:

I generally ignore your absurd statements concerning LGBT citizens. You are a biblical literalist. I, on the other hand, believe the overwhelming consensus of science that sexual orientation is innate and immutable.

However, you said something on Janet Mefferd's talk show that requires immediate attention and correction:
They’re doing to us what the Nazis did to the Jews.
[…]
This demonization is just — it’s what’s been done to minorities to the past and like I said, it’s what the Nazis did to the Jews.

Another hatefest coming your way October 27-29

It is titled The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage. According to the Ethics and Religious Liberty Convention of the Southern Baptist Convention it's aim is “to equip Christians to apply the gospel on these issues with convictional kindness in their communities, their families and their churches.” They go on to ask:
Are you and your church prepared for the moral revolution surrounding homosexuality and same-sex marriage happening across America? While human sexuality and social institutions are being redefined before our very eyes, the Bible presents marriage as an unchanging picture of the gospel through the union of one man and one woman. The gospel announces that the story of Jesus is greater than the sum total of our sexual desires.

ADF is still pimping the bakery bigot for bucks

The email from Alliance Defending Freedom is titled “Evidence of Crumbling Freedom in America.” The sub-heading is “Cake artist ordered to ignore his faith and complete re-education supporting same-sex marriage.”

I don't know what the "77 Non-Religious Reasons to Support Man/Woman Marriage" are

In an email Jennifer Roback Morse claims that this pamphlet provides the answers to “What can you say when you're called a Hater or a Bigot?” I don't know what the “77 Non-Religious Reasons to Support Man/Woman Marriage” are — nor do I really care. But I am sure as shit not going to pay $2.50 to find out.

These are actually the “reasons” to support a ban of same-sex marriage at the behest of the Catholic Church. At this point we can safely presuppose that these are not terribly compelling.
