'National Organization for Marriage Reacts to President Obama’s Immigration Proposal'

Who the hell cares? According to National Organization for Marriage (as proxy for the Roman Catholic Bishops):
This is yet another example of the President playing politics rather than enforcing our nation’s laws and offering a true, workable solution. First, his Administration threw in the towel and refused to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Then, he came out of the closet on gay marriage. Now, he is apparently proposing a direct violation of DOMA, currying added favor with gay activists, many of whom have lavished contributions on his reelection campaign. ...
And ... and ... and ... Mitt Romeny signed the NOM pledge and he lost. Funny how Obama is doing pretty much what he said he would do to get elected and then reelected.

Every whackadoo on the planet has a view on fags this week

Yes, I used the word "fag" deliberately because, ladies and gentlemen, that is what they think of us and that is the word that they would like to use. Asserting that we are all a bunch of pedophiles is not polite conversation.

I have no fewer than 20 e-mails this week regarding the Boy Scouts of America. From Eagle Forum, Family Research Council, Liberty Counsel, ADF, Florida Family Association, and so on, and so on. Every one of these implies that gay men are inherently child molesters. Most of these miscreants have sent multiple emails; each with more telephone numbers to call including the companies that board members are employed by. Oh, and they include sample scripts to use. All these holier-than-thou, self-righteous schmucks harassing their way to a decision that pleases them. After bitching, they end each script with "God bless" as if that makes all the vile rhetoric OK.

Apparently an anti-gay newly-wed couple is now embarrassed by their own bigotry


Meet Janelle and Mike Gehling. Back in March, 2012, these two newly-wed nitwits wanted to prohibit gays from doing what they recently did     Marry. Why? Because they are devout Catholics and because Marriage is reserved for opposite sex couples only. So they made a cutesy little video to be used in the campaign to advance an anti-gay marriage amendment in Minnesota. I downloaded the video to my YouTube channel. Oh, and the amendment failed.

NOM has a 'NEW' old video victim

If you think that you have seen this guy before it's because National Organization for Marriage used this video in Minnesota last fall. It has not improved with age.

First, the obvious. This guy is in Canada. More importantly, what he wants is not only patently absurd but has little, if anything, to do with marriage equality. What he wants is for his kid's school to give him a heads-up anytime a class discussion included anything that might be contradictory to his religious beliefs including (but not limited to) marriage, family and sexuality.  Tourloukis is a dentist and a member of the Greek Orthodox Church. What was that about wanting special rights?

Opus Dei is getting what they paid for in Rhode Island

English: Cross of Opus Dei - based primarily o...
Opus Dei (through Witherspoon Institute) has very close ties to National Organization for Marriage. Witherspoon funded much of the Regnerus "study." To make matters worse, Witherspoon's Program Director, Brad Wilcox, was responsible for recruiting Regnerus. Wilcox was also responsible for getting him a planning grant of $55,000. Then Wilcox collaborated with Regnerus on the study design which ensured the desired result. Thereafter, Witherspoon approved funding for the full study which reached close to $800,000.

Today, Christopher Plante made this claim (without citing the study by name) in an email to supporters:

Jim Daly doesn't get to make Holocaust similes

As a Jewish man I am outraged that the right wing continues to make comparisons to the Holocaust. I lost an entire generation of my family that fled from eastern Europe to France; Only to be rounded up to the Vel d'Hiv. More appalling is Mr. Daly quoting Elie Weisel.

Daly, who is President of the anti-gay group, Focus on the Family, disagrees with the possibility that the Boy Scouts of America is considering more inclusive policies for LGBT people. He writes:

Dear Mr. LaPierre

Dear Mr. Wayne LaPierre:

I was seriously injured by a weapon in the hands of a presumptive prohibited purchaser (and certainly a prohibited carrier). I hold you partially responsible.

Due to your obstruction, irresponsibility, unreasonableness and irrationality you are complicit in placing hundreds of thousands of weapons in the hands of criminals and psychopaths. Indeed, Mr. LaPierre, you are the same guy who fought for the rights of terrorists on the no-fly list to acquire deadly weapons. While I think that violent criminals forfeit their right to own weapons     you do not.

While David Blankenhorn moves forward, Maggie Gallagher remains stuck on marriage inequality

English: Maggie Gallagher at the Cato Institute
A new post on Maggie Gallagher's website is titled Kids Need Both Mom and Dad, Says Gay Man Opposed to Gay Marriage

As you might have guessed, the gay man referenced above is Doug Mainwaring.

For a long time I thought, if I could just find the right partner, we could raise my kids together, but it became increasingly apparent to me, even if I found somebody else exactly like me, who loved my kids as much as I do, there would still be a gaping hole in their lives because they need a mom,” Mainwaring, co-founder of National Capital Tea Party Patriots, said.

David Blankenhorn forges new marriage coalition

David Blankenhorn with Larry R. Jacobs
The New York Times offers a very good read today regarding David Blankenhorn and his switch from anti-equality to being a proponent of marriage equality. That decision has cost him considerably in donations which has caused him to downsize his organization. David is a smart guy. I am certain that he appreciated the financial risk of doing the right thing.

I'll isolate one quote from Sean Fieler, AIV's largest donor:
“The problem with gay marriage and the position David has taken,” Mr. Fieler said, “is it promotes a very harmful myth about the gay lifestyle. It suggests that gay relationships lend themselves to monogamy, stability, health and parenting in the same way heterosexual relationships do. That’s not true.”
So there you have it. We are incapable of marital fidelity.

Finally, Cordileone admits that fighting marriage equality is about making God happy

National Organization for Marriage is featuring a piece on their Blog about San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone. This was an interview that Cordileone gave to the UK Catholic Herald. The paragraph immediately preceding the part that NOM quotes reads as follows:

The Christian right actually believe that gay men are child molesters

Father Brendan Smyth
Gay men as pedophiles pretty much shapes the anti-gay agenda. It always has. Even when not stated explicitly, it is often implied. When Robert George was trying to oust Kevin Jennings from the US Department of Education, he blew that dog whistle and he was none too subtle about it. They do it because they know that it works. They also do it because they believe it.

I received one of those emails this morning from John Stemberger of Florida Family Action that screamed "EMERGENCY ALERT: BOY SCOUTS CONSIDER ALLOWING HOMOSEXUAL SCOUTMASTERS." In the alternative, one need only to read Buster Wilson's blog for their daily dose of dire dread:

Why the reaction to Chick-fil-A 's charitable giving is COMPLETELY off base

Chick-fil-A
Stepping through this:

  1. While we have known for some time that Chick-fil-A was a "Christian" company, the turds hit the turbines when COO, Dan Cathay weighed into marriage equality on July 18, 2012.
  2. National Organization for Marriage and Mike Huckabee started "Eat at CFA Days" on July 24, 2012 and August 1, 2012 respectively.
  3. The Company came under pressure throughout the fall of 2012. Bloggers and Equality Matters noticed that the affiliated Winshape Foundation was funding anti-gay endeavors like Exodus International and Family Research Council. This was for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.

FRC: 'The Boy Scouts of America board would be making a serious mistake to bow to the strong-arm tactics of LGBT activists'

We have heard, today, that the Boy Scouts of America is re-considering their anti-gay policies. Hate group, Family Research Council has now weighed in with an admonishment. According to FRC, we are "strong-arming" the BSA. Who knew?

According to FRC's press release quoting their president, Tony F. Perkins:

Should We Expect Amicus Briefs From Obama's Solicitor General?

The United States Supreme Court.
Yesterday, in an editorial, the New York Times urged the Obama Administration to direct the Solicitor General to file an amicus brief in Hollingsworth v Perry; the Proposition 8 case before the US Supreme Court. as the Times observes:

NOM's flat out manufactured convenient bold type lie on UK educators

Today, the Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, provided guidance that teachers in Catholic schools should not marry divorcees, marry in registry offices or in other civil ceremonies (such as civil partnerships) that do not meet the Catholic Church’s approval.

The timing and intent of the advisory were quite obvious; Openly gay senior teachers at Catholic schools could face demotion or termination if they fail to live according to the gospel of the Roman Catholic Church.

Tens of Thousands March in Paris in Support of Marriage Equality

Tens of thousands of people marched in Paris today in support of a government-sponsored bill that would legalize marriage and adoption for same-sex couples. Demonstrators waved banners emblazoned with phrases such as "Equality of rights is not a threat."

Police estimate that the march drew 125,000 demonstrators into the streets.  A demonstration in December organized by the Roman Catholic church drew an estimated 340,000 demonstrators who are opposed to marriage equality.

About 63% of French citizens are in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage. A month ago, that number was 60%.

More importantly, the French parliament is due to begin debate on the bill on Tuesday. The bill is expected to pass.

Last Week, Last Year In NOM

I am going to try to do this on Sundays. Items selected for their amusement value. These are some of the headlines that were the National Organization for Marriage:

  • Jan 21, 2012: MARRIAGE ALERT: Tell your legislators to vote YES on [New Hampshire] HB437 to Repeal Same-Sex Marriage

Archbishop Cordileone is just another garden variety bigot

Salvatore J. Cordileone, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of San Francisco, cannot help himself. Getting these guys to say "gay people" is becoming as elusive as getting a Scientologist to publicly say "Xenu." The reason is simple. They want us to pretend that gay people don't exist.

In response to President Obama's inaugural address, Cordileone wants us to know (via the National Catholic Register) that he really cares about us and our unique problems:

CNA: 'Rally against civil unions bill warns of great persecution'

As expected, the Catholic Church is opposing Colorado's civil unions bill. It turns out that this "great persecution" is that Catholic adoption agencies will choose not to permit adoptions by gay couples and will choose therefore to close rather than give up the taxpayer funds that they exist on. Fascinating. Gay people, who can be denied employment and even housing simply for being gay, aren't the persecuted. Oh no. It is the multi-trillion dollar enterprise known as the Catholic Church that is persecuted.

Jerry Boykin on Fox News Sunday

Retired Lt. General and Family Research Council Executive Vice President William G. (Jerry) Boykin will be a guest on Fox New Sunday. On November 16, 2012, Boykin said this to explain the General David Petraeus sex scandal:
What you’re seeing is a declining morality in our military. I believe that is very deliberate. I believe the military has been targeted by the left, targeted largely by the gay and lesbian lobby, but also by other elements of the left to bring the military down because the military has been a bastion of morality and ethics. It’s been the anchor of our society for a very long time. And you can’t change our society completely until you lower the standards of the military and bring them down. That’s what we see happening here.
Perhaps someone at Fox could challenge Boykin. Apparently, we want to serve openly so that we can destroy the military even though the same people have been serving while in the closet for decades.

Right Wing Watch has their own set of questions for Boykin.

ICYMI: In malpractice case, Catholic hospital argues fetuses aren’t people

Catholic organizations have for decades fought to change federal and state laws that fail to protect “unborn persons,” and Catholic Health’s lawyers in this case had the chance to set precedent bolstering anti-abortion legal arguments. Instead, they are arguing state law protects doctors from liability concerning unborn fetuses on grounds that those fetuses are not persons with legal rights.

"Take Action Now!"

National Organization for Marriage has their hands full.Tonight's urgency is Wyoming. Yesterday it was Rhode Island. Tomorrow, it might be Hawaii. ... and then ... who knows? Illinois, Minnesota, Ohio?

It is a reasonable certainty that we will add marriage equality states this year. Which ones and how many are anyone's guess but I feel confident that we will add to the states that recognize same-sex marriage. I am hoping that one of those in the equal marriage column will be California but nobody really knows what the Supreme Court will do.

As we add states, it becomes increasingly preposterous for the Church (via NOM) to advance silly scare arguments about marriage equality. Yet, experience tells me that they will continue to try. They are at that point when they believe their own bullshit.

Briefing Schedule for the Prop 8 and DOMA cases before the Supreme Court

United States Supreme Court building.
BLAG (the House of Representatives "Bipartisan" Legal Advisory Group) has already submitted their brief (PDF) in support of DOMA (US v Windsor). Proponents of Prop 8 (Hollingsworth v Perry) have also submitted their brief (PDF). Here is the remainder of the schedule before the United States Supreme Court:

I am sick and tired of the notion that public servants require religious exemptions in order to do their jobs

We all pay the taxes that pay public servants. We don't give them the right to abstain from serving us due to their personal prejudices. Prejudice based on religious belief is still prejudice. In the hands of public servants it is unlawful prejudice and discrimination.

ADF's Kellie Fiedorek who, by the way is a graduate of that esteemed law school at Ave Maria University, asserts that is precisely what Colorado's public servants should be able to do with respect to civil unions. According to her testimony before the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday:

Brian Brown STILL seeking that wedge between gays and African-Americans

Personally, I don't think that National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown deserves ink any more than David Duke. Yes; As a proud Jew I just compared the anti-gay activities of Mr. Brown to one of the nation's leading antisemites. I see no difference. The fact that Mr. Brown is a de facto delegate of the Catholic Church is irrelevant to the rightness of his cause.

TD Banks on gays - LifesiteNews does not approve

TD Bank is rapidly gaining a reputation for excellence in customer service. In South Beach their three branches are open seven days a week - until 8:00 PM weekdays.  But I digress. According to TD:
TD is committed to building an inclusive environment where all employees and customers feel welcomed and respected. As part of its corporate diversity strategy, one of TD’s key priorities is to be recognized by the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) community as their bank of choice. TD views this community as an important part of its customer base. The International Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce estimates that Canada includes two million LGBT consumers with spending power of $100 billion.
In response, LifesiteNews seems to be encouraging readers to complain to the bank. They go on and on about how we are only 2% of the population and TD cannot possibly be making money. Then they claim that this is all part of an agenda-driven campaign to normalize homosexuality. The genesis of that conspiracy theory remains unexplained.

Permit me to clue them in (ahem).

The Requisite Weed Whacker

fo·cus (ˈfōkəs) n. The center of interest or activity.

National Organization for Marriage is a religious organization serving as a proxy for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. NOM has close ties to Opus Dei and all of the key players are fundamentalist Catholics.

NOM's real objection to marriage equality is religious opprobrium. That's it. All the rest; All of the noise and feigned victimization is a substitute for their religious objection.

Opposing marriage equality is not anti-gay per se.

National Organization for Marriage is an anti-gay hate group, not because they oppose marriage equality but because they suggest that gay people are a threat to children. Holding them accountable for their blog links, they are doing so today. It is NOM's dishonest rhetoric that makes them hateful.

There are no real consequences to marriage equality. None. Zero. The rest is just fiction.

NOMnuts: Brian Brown claims gays have "full and equal rights"

At 10:00 PM this evening, National Organization for Marriage weighed in on President Obama's second inaugural decrying what they claim was President Obama's "Decision to Divide Nation Over Marriage on Inauguration Day." It's a strange claim from a religious and political organization that is seeking to impose their religious beliefs on a society that favors marriage equality.

Before launching into the proforma "redefining marriage" nonsense, Brown is quoted saying:
Gay and lesbian people are already treated equally under the law. ... They have the same civil rights as anyone else; they have the right to live as they wish and love whom they choose.

"Pastor" Steven Andrew can kiss my gay Jewish ass

Steven Andrew is actually in the business of selling vanity-published books. A visit to his cheesy website makes that abundantly clear. Every now and then, Mr. Andrew buys some ink by purchasing a press release through Christian Newswire. President Barack Obama's second inaugural provides Andrew with some fodder.

First the antisemitic stuff:

Georgia funding discriminatory Christian schools with public money

A tax credit scheme in Georgia is transforming state money into private school scholarships. As many as one-third of the schools that are beneficiaries have explicit anti-LGBT policies.

For example, the official policy at Cherokee Christian School, in Woodstock, Ga., states "That any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, or attempt to alter one’s gender is a sinful perversion of God’s gift of human sexuality." The New York Times cited a statement of policy including; "Homosexual behavior, whether an ‘immoral act’ or ‘identifying statement,’ is incompatible with enrollment at Cherokee Christian Schools and is a basis for dismissal." That statement has been removed from the school's website.

Tasteless and Wrong!

Today, most Americans think about the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. Today,as we honor Dr. King's legacy, we celebrate and witness the swearing in of Barack Obama, America's first African-American president, to a second term. These coinciding events make today a very special day for equality and unity in an exceptional America.

No - George Weigel is not a "Public Intellectual"

National Organization for Marriage seems intent on redefining our understanding of language. NOM writes:
Public intellectual George Weigel continues his series for First Things describing what the marriage debate is about.
In point of fact, Mr. Weigel is a conservative-Catholic writer and activist. Much of Weigel's fame is derived from his authorship of Witness to Hope, in 2001, a biography of the late Pope John Paul II. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with Mr. Weigel's religious bent. Nevertheless, religion shapes his point of view; Intellectual honesty may be compromised to conform to religious dogma. Do we need another reminder that National Organization for Marriage is a conservative-Catholic organization? Mr. Weigel writes:

How many brain cells are imperiled just by reading Buster Wilson's blog feed. Wilson (an evangelical preacher) is the virulently anti-gay GM of American Family Association's radio network (AFR). The hate group's primary propagandist is the wildly unhinged Bryan Fischer. AFR provides a platform for Fischer to display his obvious personality disorder several hours each day.

The Christian right is a political (not religious) movement. There has never been a shortage of victims among the Christian right. It's how they operate. It's how get what they want. It's also the engine that drives donations.

Keith Gingery
The Advocate is reporting that Rep. Keith Gingery, a Catholic Republican lawmaker in Wyoming is advocating for marriage equality in his state. Gingery, who is on the judiciary committee, is the cosponsor on equal marriage and civil union bills.

Elaine F. Donnelly Lives

If you thought the wicked witch was dead  due to the repeal of DADT     think again. Elaine F. Donnelly is the creation of Phyllis F. Schlafly (or the corpse pretending to be Phyllis F. Schlafly). These creatures are impervious to wooden stakes. For years Donnelly (sometimes comically) fought against the repeal of Don't-Ask, Don't-Tell. Bless her little heart. She has been so out there that she did as much for repealing DADT as any gay group. But I digress.

The nomination of Chuck F. Hagel gives Donnelly the perfect opportunity to pen an Op-Ed for the Washington F. Times. Therein she says     well I'm not exactly sure what she is saying. I get that Donnelly is claiming that Jim Hormel was, perhaps, one of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence because he financially supported groups like HRC. That much is clear. After devoting more than half of her little polemic to the financial beneficence of Mr. Hormel, she astonishingly writes:
The issue now is not about Mr. Hormel − it’s about LGBT intimidation to achieve future political ends. As the activists see it, since the lame-duck Congress rushed to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in 2010, the next secretary of defense should impose the full rainbow spectrum of LGBT Law on our military. In their news release, GetEQUAL mentioned their demands for transgenders in uniform. Senators, therefore, should ask nominee Hagel, “Are you in line with GetEQUAL on transgenders in the military? If not, why not?”
She doesn't like Hagel because he is an Obama appointee yet she likes Hagel for offending gays. Who cares? Why on earth is anyone listening to this bitch? In fact, how does she rate space, even in a rag like the Washington Times? According to her, the military was going to turn into a massive homosexual fuckfest where gay-rape was common, people would be afraid to shower and HIV would destroy the combat blood supply (she really, said those things, and more, before a Congressional committee that was collectively aghast).

Personally, I'm less than fond of Mr. Hagel but I am willing to hear what he says before the Senate committee. More importantly, the tradition in this country is that the President gets the cabinet of his choosing. At this point the well is so poisoned that, should any GOPer ever get to be President again, he or she will accomplish zilch     just like Elaine Donnelly.

Yet another celibate weighs in on Marriage Equality. This time it is Thomas J.

According to Tobin, "The General Assembly Should Reject "Same-Sex Marriage.'" It's the usual BS including:
The natural law, the Holy Scriptures, and long-standing religious tradition are very consistent in affirming that homosexual activity is sinful, contrary to God’s plan. It should never be encouraged, ratified or “blessed” by the state.

[Video] Topless Vatican Protesters - 'In gay we trust'

Four women have gone topless in St. Peter's Square to protest the Vatican's opposition to gay marriage.

Police quickly took the women away Sunday, and the pope appeared not to have been disturbed as he delivered his traditional prayer from his studio window overlooking the piazza.

Blowhard Bill on Pastor Giglio

Weighing in on anti-gay Pastor Giglio's withdrawal from the inauguration, the Catholic League's Bill Donohue asks "Is Christianity Anti-Gay?" Donohue then proceeds to answer his own question. Bill concludes:
With regard to homosexuality, the teachings found in Christianity were taken from Judaism. Moreover, Islam also sees homosexuality as sinful. Are we to believe that the adherents of all these world religions are “anti-gay”? It is more likely that those who think this way have lost their bearings. They should lose their jobs, as well.
