summer's Love and
Fidelity Network

conference

Friday, October 30 marks the beginning of the The Love and Fidelity Network's Sexuality, Integrity, and the University conference. The stated goal of the event is “to connect college men and women, young professionals, and community supporters to leading scholars and experts in order to equip them with the best arguments and resources in support of marriage, family, and sexual integrity. Participants and livestream viewers will also find ample opportunity to network with and learn from each other and attend sessions designed to equip them to bring the message of love and fidelity back to their respective campuses and to the public square.”

NOM trots out "Our Message is Your Message"


Our Message is Your Message” is Brian Brown's latest attempt to attract donors to the failed National Organization for Marriage. The obvious problem is; What, exactly is your message? NOM exists to ban same-sex marriage on behalf of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. They failed to do so and the issue has been settled. According to Mr. Brown, NOM's president:

Marriage Reality Movement's first goal is deception

Bill May's Marriage Reality Movement (Catholics for the Common Good Institute) is not off to a very auspicious start. Aside from giving away a tacky “statute” May concedes what we have known all along: his case requires deception. From an email sent to supporters today:
… that is one of the very first things Marriage Reality Movement members learn: how to express Church teaching using non-religious language, enabling family members and friends to confirm its truth and beauty. Learning how to do this requires becoming aware of how we unwittingly help spread the lies of the culture that actually conflict with what we believe.

Linda Harvey vs. a very brave gay kid

Braeden Lange

Wednesday, Linda Harvey took to the pages of the ever-intellectual WND with “The LGBT house of horrors.” In summary, every day is the evil side of Halloween because adults accept the sexual orientation or gender identity of children. Oh my, they might otherwise change their minds.

The bizarre TFP Student Action cult is still protesting same-sex marriage


TFP Student Action is campaigning against marriage equality in Cincinnati. I have no idea what they hope to achieve post Obergefell. This seems like a futile enterprise.

As I have previously written, the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property can be envisioned as a fusion of Opus Dei and the John Birch Society. Its roots are in ultra right wing (and violent) Latin American dictatorships opposing agrarian reform. TFP supported people like Augusto Pinochet, a corrupt tyrant guilty of hundreds of human rights violations.

The Movable Hate Fest Relocates to Iowa in November


November 6 marks the start of Freedom 2015 in Des Moines. The producers change but the script and cast of characters is strikingly similar to other persecuted Christian convocations. Three certified anti-gay hate groups are among the sponsors: American Family Association, American Vision and Generations With Vision. The ultimate objective of all these events is to define religious freedom as the right to discriminate against LGBT citizens. There is also a deliberate effort to erode the Establishment Clause as part of “Christian Nation” ideology.

Today is the first Stand4Truth conference


The Stand4Truth Conference is being held Monday in Salt Lake City. Sponsors include KTALK Radio, the American Family Association, Family Research Council, Mass Resistance and Eos Mobile. The event, choreographed in part by three certified anti-gay hate groups, brings together the usual crackpots and religious wingnuts. The presentation strives to be mostly secular. However, this is a conservative Christian event. This is an expression of their disapproval of LGBT people.

Discharged executive files discrimination claim against Richmond archdiocese


John Murphy, the former head of an assisted-living facility, has filed a discrimination claim against the archdiocese of Richmond with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Murphy claims that his employment was terminated solely because the dioceses learned that he was married to another man. Filing the claim will preserve Murphy's legal options including a suit for discrimination in federal court.

Ruth Institute has a new brochure pushing Regnerus BS


The anti-gay hate group Ruth Institute, which isn't much more than Jennifer Roback Morse, has published a new pamphlet titled “Same-Sex Parenting.” I am not at all sure what the point is. Is she trying to stop gay couples from adopting children? Does she seriously contend that kids are better off in the system than in the care of a gay couple? Morse is a whacked out ultra-conservative Catholic so anything is possible.

As you can see, each page says “Do Not Copy.” Yeah. Sure. Just to give you a sample:

The damned Commies ruined marriage


There is an interesting piece on the National Organization for Marriage blog today titled “How the Left has Sabotaged Marriage.” Therein, “NOM Staff” (possibly one of Brian Brown's children) writes:
Dr. Paul Kengor, professor of political science at Grove City College, writes a fascinating piece in today's Daily Signal about the involvement of the American Communist Party in pushing the LGBT agenda in America. Dr. Kengor says:

AFA does a bizarre parroting of HRC

Tim Wildmon

American Family Association, a certified anti-gay hate group, intends to publish a yearly “Corporate Religious Liberty Index (CRLI).” This seems to be an answer to the Human Rights Campaign's “Corporate Equality Index.” As AFA further explains:
The survey includes seven questions that deal with corporate policies and practices. As companies take the survey, the answers will be scored, compiled, and assigned an “index number” that will indicate whether or not companies are favorable, indifferent, or antagonistic to religious liberty. The index number will fall on a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 indicating full support for religious freedom.
I haven't been able to find out what the seven questions are but I am inclined to think that they won't include anything related to transgender accommodations. Nor are they likely to question LGBT non-discrimination policies. When they publish it we'll know what it is. Who would respond to such a thing?

WCF to honor woman who claims that gay rights advocates in the US are in conspiracy with Boko Haram

Theresa Okafor
Theresa Okafor
According to the World Congress of Families, “the Woman of the Year award will be presented to Theresa Okafor, who is Chief Executive Officer of Life League Nigeria and Director of the Foundation for Cultural Heritage.” Okafor's group was active in getting Nigeria to ban same-sex relationships. As the Times points out, not only are same-sex relationships banned but it is illegal to attend or organize a meeting of gays, or patronize or operate any type of gay organization, including private clubs.

In a 2012 speech, Okafor suggests that western gay activists are in a conspiracy with Boko Haram (an Islamist extremist group) to silence Christians.

Huckabee is either profoundly confused or spectacularly cynical

Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee is not going to be elected president of the United States; Not in 2016; Not ever. The former Arkansas Governor is enjoying an all expenses paid book and speaking fees tour courtesy of donors. It is a form of Christian economics that only makes sense if you are, well … you know.

In an interview with Des Moines, IA’s KCCI Channel 8 Huckabee explained that he fails to see the difference between states disregarding federal anti-pot laws and state employees such as Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis refusing to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The difference, Mr. Huckabee, is that gay citizens have a constitutional right to marry. Weed doesn't seem to be a constitutional issue. When Ms. Davis does her thing she is frustrating the constitutional rights of fellow citizens.

God hates hags?


Even Westboro Baptist Church hates Kim Davis. Its far right Christian crazies are now calling Kim Davis an “adulterer” because she has been in four marriages. According to a press release announcing a demonstration on Monday “That man that Kim Davis is living with, and calling her husband, IS NOT!” The group is planning a protest at the Rowan County clerk's office.

Jennifer LeClaire: Three sure signs that you are under witchcraft attack


“… fire burn and cauldron bubble.” Little wonder why we endure pointless conversations over things like equal protection and due process for LGBT citizens. While Al Mohler is busy instructing people not to attend their kids' same-sex weddings, this whack-job Christian is concerned about necromancy. These are “sure signs” by the way.
Earlier this month, I went through a massive witchcraft attack. My mind was clouded. My eyes were burning. My body was worn out. People were attacking me with unfounded accusations. I had a low-grade headache that lasted for days.

Memories of Memories Pizza - if they insist

Travis Weber
Travis Weber - Family Research Council
Victimology. On Friday Travis Weber from Family Research Council posted a piece to Heritage Foundation's news blog. It is titled “How the Indiana Pizza Shop Responded After Being Tricked Into ‘Catering’ a Gay Wedding.” Nobody gives a flying fuck. At least nobody should. This is just grist for the mill for the anti-gay hate group that is Mr. Weber's employer.

Mark Creech, marriage, Little Red Riding Hood and the Supreme Court

Mark H. Creech
Mark H. Creech
Friday, Mark Creech, executive director of North Carolina's Christian Action League has a point to make about same-sex marriage at the expense of a fairy tale. Creech is the bigot who has said that “homosexuality is impure, dirty, and disgusting.” He has also claimed that “the real cause of homosexual desire or activity is the idolatrous instincts of the human heart.” There's just so much material to choose from.

Brittany-Rivka-Klein-Newmark-Edelman-Whatever opines on Witherspoon's blog


It's been about a year since Rivka Edelman aka Brittany Newmark aka B.N. Klein was permitted to post something to the ultra-orthodox Catholic Witherspoon Institute's blog. Apparently (and I don't know for sure) her real name might be Brittany Newmark Klein (although Brittany is an unusual first name for a Jew). Today she writes as simply “B. Klein.” It's hard to take someone seriously – it's hard to believe anything they say – when they obfuscate their real identity. I use my middle name to remove any doubt. By the way, Ryan T. Anderson is supposed to edit this stuff. Hello!


Bill May asks for money to "Prove the LGBT Lobby Wrong"


Thursday, Bill May, president of the Marriage Reality Movement, has sent out an email asking for money to prove us wrong. Last week I wrote about the old/new launch of this organization (which is really Catholics for the Common Good Institute) noting that they have no money. May writes:
We've also attracted the attention of the LGBT lobby who in blogs and social media have dismissed the MRM and our efforts. They point out that we don't have the money to be in a position to take back marriage. Sadly, they may be right.

In order to launch at the World Meeting of Families, the most important conference on the family and the Church in the past few years, we depleted our resources.

AFA taking credit for ... something

The anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, has sent out an email to supporters titled “3 petitions that mattered greatly.” I am trying to figure out how they “mattered.”
Barronelle Stutzman
At the recent Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC, AFA president Tim Wildmon presented Barronelle with a framed copy of a petition generated by AFA in her support. It was signed by more than 60,000 AFA supporters.
The purpose of a petition is to effect change. What changed?

The shaming room is now open

Another victim
The Catholic Church's Courage Apostolate has a new infomercial titled “Desire of the Everlasting Hills.” The call to chastity doesn't concern me — people can make their own decisions. Rather, it is the portrayal of gay people that is offensive. The Church has spent some money in production values to drive home the notion that gay people are broken and need to be fixed.

According to the film, and the accompanying study guide, gay people are “objectively disordered,” “unfulfilled” and isolated. We “experience feelings of loneliness, confusion, guilt and despair.” The Church offers “fellowship, truth and friendship” in return for giving up your sexuality. I think that it is a shitty deal. Others might disagree. As I said, people can make their own decisions.

Making Mischief: Brown, Davis, Hart and Staver

Making Mischief
The idea that NOM was “instrumental in the release of Kim from jail” — I confess that I am at a loss for words.

Most of Tuesday (which felt like Monday) I worked on getting Princeton to do something about Robert P. George. Right or wrong, the approach is planned and deliberate. Just to put this in perspective, the $21 billion endowment provides nearly half ($700 million) of Princeton's operating budget. Tuition and research grants each generate about $300 million. It's a big operation. George, by the way, doesn't seem to be doing (publishing) any sponsored research which means that he is on the consumption side of the endowment. Nevertheless, this is a heavy lift over a long haul. The odds against success are considerable. That's what makes it interesting and worth doing.

In Brief: The Hillary Obsession

With 13 months to go before our presidential election, right wing media are obsessed with Hillary. Not that they will change any minds (most progressive don't read the Washington Times) but they are giving the troops the talking points. These are the “facts” that will make their way – with biblical certitude – into Disqus threads. Tuesday morning I was catching up on news feeds since last night. Here is the Washington Times opinion feed:

Here is the breakdown on the signers of Robert George's nullification manifesto

The complete article on this issue is here. A new post is easier than a update. I had to make some assumptions. Also, I will call Robert George a legal scholar in spite of the fact that Princeton does not have a law school. On the other hand I have not called an attorney with ADF a legal scholar.

  • 16 signatories are legal scholars or faculty at a law school. We have a bunch of Regent U. but no Harvard Law or Yale Law. No Liberty Law either.
  • 42 signatories are liberal arts academicians. Many in philosophy and history.
  • 1 signatory is with a non-religious not-for-profit.
  • 3 signatories are with religious not-for-profit organizations including Alliance Defending Freedom (1).
  • 2 signatories provide no affiliation but indicate that they are lawyers


Should I mention that AFA is pissing in Campbell's Soup?


It's a genuine question because American Family Association (a certified anti-gay hate group) is generally pissed off at something most of the time. If they aren't pissed at your soup, they are pissing in your soup. As H.L. Mencken once said it's “[t]he haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.”

This time their outrage has been inspired by the audacity of Campbell's to use a real adorable two-dad family with their real adorable two-dad raised son in a real adorable soup commercial. Go figure. It's Armageddon.

It's time for Princeton U. to reevaluate the ever odious Robert George

Robert P. George
Robert P. George
On October 8, the American Principles Project (an organization founded by Robert George) issued a manifesto on their website titled “Statement Calling for Constitutional Resistance to Obergefell v. Hodges.” Therein they call on federal and state office holders to defy the Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges which holds that state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional. George is the fourth signature but this is almost surely his handiwork (just like the Manhattan Declaration) and it is provided by an organization that he founded. This starts off with:

Alabama probate judge goes batshit

Judge John Enslen
This is from a Liberty Counsel press release regarding Alabama Probate Judge John Enslen:
Judge Enslen pointed out, "Despite the June 26, 2015, ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States in Obergefell v. Hodges, the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses in Alabama... remains illegal and unconstitutional in the State of Alabama." "Born solely from a strained interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, the new same-sex marriage license is a child of the federal government, not the State of Alabama." Judge Enslen argued that Alabama could constitutionally recognize same-sex marriages from states whose legislatures had recognized such purported unions, or a license created under the authority of the United States by Congress, but there is no constitutional provision forcing Alabama to act and issue same-sex licenses, merely because the five-justice majority in Obergefell issued its opinion.

Archbishop Cordileone finds a "new" champion as NOM's newest old "competitor" emerges

From the front page of the Marriage Reality Movement website. The woman on the right is a volunteer
According to Catholic media, “[a] new group called the Marriage Reality Movement aims to help Catholics and others renew the vision of marriage in society.” They go on to explain that the new group was launched in Philadelphia on September 30 with a keynote speech by Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, the chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage.

Bullshit. There is nothing new here. This is really William May's Catholics for the Common Good Institute. The domain, takebackarriage.org, was created in November, 2014 and last January it was using the same name that was new ten days ago:

Oh no - NOM wants your money because WHAT?


National Organization for Marriage is delighted that Rep. Kevin McCarthy pulled out of the race for Speaker of the House because he supported that GOP hohmohseckshual Carl Demaio. NOM now claims that they should be funded because they will help select the next Speaker of the House — along with somehow getting support for the First Amendment Defense Act. FADA would probably die on the Senate floor and would certainly be vetoed by President Obama if it got that far.

Oh, and the subject line of the email is “Big Win!” McCarthy pulling out is a big win for NOM? My neighbor's cat makes more sense than that.

NOM is touting a bus tour again

National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown has sent out an email signed by Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life. That, of course, means students opposed to choice — until one of them gets knocked up. In point of fact this has absolutely nothing to do with reproductive choice. This is about denying Medicaid funds to Planned Parenthood.

The subject line of the email reads “Can We Put Your Name on Our Bus?” Whose bus? The only name I see on that bus is FRC Action which would be Family Research Council — a certified hate group. Students for Life probably doesn't want its name on the bus because that would jeopardize their status as a 501(c)3. NOM probably doesn't have any money so this seems to be FRC's bus.


Seriously - even in Alabama?

Banner at the Foundation for Moral Law website
Thursday, John Eidsmoe claims that the Supreme Court's decision in Obergefell v. Hodges does not apply to the states. Really? Eureka! It's a fucking miracle.

John Eidsmoe has been a lawyer for 45 years. During most of that time he was in the US Air Force retiring as a Lt.Col. I suspect that he was in the chaplain's corps. His last appearances in federal court were about five years ago. He lost four of five cases. The remaining action (for sanctions against him) was dismissed because opposing counsel did not file briefs on time. In one of the losses he was second chair for the unaccredited “Graduate School” of the Institute for Creation Research. I suspect that one might lose brain cells just by dialing their telephone number. Eidsmoe had a gig for awhile at fourth-tier Thomas Goode Jones School of Law.

A follow-up on John Collins

I wrote about Mr. Collins' extreme views on gay people yesterday. I am reminded that, in a prior piece, he wrote:
Inestimable confusion descends whenever homosexuality is thought to imply something positive in the order of dignity or aesthetics or friendship or being itself. Such implications are erroneous.
Someone this hateful has no business running 15 schools, secular or Catholic. At a minimum, parents should know just how over-the-top this guy is. I have taken a few steps in an attempt to shine some light on this matter. Perhaps one of them will work. Perhaps readers will be similarly motivated has I profess no monopoly in ingenuity.

The Sob Sister of Sodom is begging for monthly donors

Brian S. Brown

Sure Bri. People are going to fall all over themselves to commit to a monthly bill-pay to National Organization for Marriage. After all, NOM has been so successful. Brown has no shame and that is precisely what he is begging people to do in today's email blast titled "In Good Times and Bad."

You would think that Brian Brown could take a hint that whatever they are doing doesn't work. Yet they stick with the same idiotic rhetoric. Behold:

Conservative Catholic site runs with "Is the Homosexual Tendency a Complex Reality?"

I will spare you the lengthy read at Crisis Magazine. According to John Collins, a superintendent of 15 Catholic schools for the diocese of Santa Rosa, California:
The homosexual inclination or tendency is “objectively disordered.” This pithy phrase helps us all (including the profession of psychology) to understand both the homosexual tendency and those in its grip. The Church simply and wisely declares that what is meant by “this inclination” (i.e., homosexual tendency) is “objectively disordered”—that is, out of alignment with the human being as made in God’s image. As is evident here, the Catechism provides an evaluation which is in keeping with the Church’s competency—received from Christ—to correctly estimate the phenomena of the world in light of the God-given order of creation. The Church’s evaluation here is rendered in the language of human wisdom, namely philosophy, which is the language that the Church has ever used to express its beliefs and teachings.

What they SHOULD worry about in Tennessee is children's access to WMD

Nobody wants to take away your fucking guns but ...
A minor argument between two children turned deadly on Monday when an 11-year old boy from White Pine, Tennessee shot and killed his 8-year old neighbor because she refused to let him see her puppy.

Sheriff Bud McCoig said the boy faces charges of first-degree murder in a juvenile court and is now in police custody. A detention hearing has been set for him on Monday.

Speaking of God's wrath in Blount County, Tenn ...


Tuesday, according to Reuters, the Blount, Tennessee county commission turned down voting on a resolution asking God to spare the county from divine wrath sparked by (you guessed it) the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges.

The Blount County Commission voted 10-5 to reject an agenda that included the resolution and adjourned without debate. Onlookers crowding the meeting room, most dressed in red in support of same-sex marriage, yelled in frustration, and one shouted "cowards" at the commissioners.

Larry Tomczak knows what's pissing off God and he has a list

God is very, very displeased but
Larry Tomczak has a salesman's smile
Larry Tomczak, a pastor with a loud microphone and connections to Liberty Counsel, seems to think that we need Larry Tomczak to make sense of the world. We could never figure things without Larry Tomczak. The intended inference is that he speaks with his god and that his god speaks through him. Either way, he has posted a warning to Charisma News titled "Time to Pray for God's Merciful Judgment on America."

Not surprisingly Liberty Counsel does a terrible job of "dubunking" the "myth" of their hate group designation


Monday night, Liberty Counsel sent out an unsigned email titled "Debunking the SPLC 'Hate Group' Myth." It's no myth. Notwithstanding anything that SPLC does, Liberty Counsel is an anti-gay hate group. They do their very best to portray gay people as diseased perverts who prey on, and recruit, children. LC promotes thoroughly discredited gay conversion therapy.

As for Southern Poverty Law Center, their record of advocacy on behalf of oppressed minorities speaks for itself. Liberty Counsel is one of the oppressors.

Update: Liberty Counsel is now posting this same drivel around the web as "Could Your Church Be Considered a 'Hate Group?'"

Austin Ruse wants to knock down the justices of the Supreme Court "a peg or three"

Austin Ruse

On Friday Austin Ruse (head of the anti-gay hate group C-Fam) writes, at Crisis Magazine, “Time to Knock the Supremes Down a Peg or Three.” Most of Ruse's polemic consists of quotes or surmisements  from the works of Matthew Franck, also an ultra-conservative Catholic and a director at the Witherspoon Institute. It seems worth noting that Mr. Franck is not a lawyer and that he taught constitutional law at an undergraduate level — primarily in historical context. I'll get back to Ruse and Franck but first a summary.

The full statement from the Vatican and the private meeting with the gay couple


“The brief meeting between Mrs. Kim Davis and Pope Francis at the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington, DC has continued to provoke comments and discussion. In order to contribute to an objective understanding of what transpired I am able to clarify the following points:


NOM sticking to the script regarding Pope Francis meeting Kim Davis


National Organization for Marriage has sent out an email to supporters from its head Brian Brown titled “Pope Stands Strong For Marriage and Religious Liberty.” This includes:
It was recently revealed that Pope Francis met privately in Washington with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who was jailed for refusing to sacrifice her conscience and authorize same-sex 'marriages' that violate her deeply held religious beliefs. As you know, NOM has helped lead efforts to support Kim during this difficult time, generating substantial public support and even raising money to help her family handle any added expenses they may have incurred. Pope Francis thanked Ms. Davis for her courageous stand and encouraged her to continue to "stay strong" in the face of adversity.

Yesterday I vomited

Yesterday I vomited, barely getting to the bathroom on time. As a gun violence survivor I have had various reactions (none good) to the numerous mass shootings that plague our nation. The most visceral reaction that I had was after Sandy Hook. I was on the phone with someone when I started sobbing uncontrollably. I saw my shrink and sobbed some more.

The image that I could not get out of my was a large exit wound from the body of a diminutive six-year-old. I live with that image today along with the image of my zipper-like scars from various surgeries. The entry wound scar from a .45 is about the size of a dime. The scars from the stippling of a point-blank discharge have faded.

NOM is incapable of providing two paragraphs without bullshit

National Organization for Marriage staff (whomever that might be) is citing a piece on the conservative site The Federalist. Their intro reads:
As millions of Americans refuse to accept the illegitimate ruling of the US Supreme Court redefining marriage, the issue of how to deal with conscientious objectors has risen to the fore.

Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk jailed for refusing to violate her faith by participating in certifying a same-sex ‘marriage’ is perhaps the best known victim of the Court ruling, but she is only one of many who have been fined, fired, punished or put out of business. Similar punishments are taking place regarding religious groups who are unable to comply with Obamacare regulations because of their faith.

Crackpots Unite: Safe Exit Summit starts tomorrow

A group of ex-gay Christian crackpots is meeting this weekend (at a secret location) to reinforce their ignorance while possibly influencing others (hopefully not). According to Regina Griggs, head of PFOX which is one of the sponsors:
Our second annual conference is sure to raise awareness about the serious issues that ex-gays face. We are looking forward to a strong showing of attendees as we honor our ex-gays and their families. We also welcome the families and friends of those living homosexually who support the ex-gay message that change is possible.

Apparently Matt Moore's "girlfriend" didn't work out - He remains a toxic menace

Matt Moore is a gay conservative Christian. Last December he wrote a blog post (mirrored on the Christian Post) titled “Forever Gay?” Therein he wrote (take a moment to find a vomit bag first):
