Ann Barnett Annoys Local Bakersfield Media

Anti-gay Kern County Clerk Ann K. Barnett is making no friends in Bakersfield. She’s royally annoyed the local Channel 29 Eyewitness News by denying them the ability to videotape where they had in the past and then calling the police on them. And she’s infuriating the local County Counsel by stubbornly refusing to follow his legal advice and to cooperate with media.

She’s refering everyone to the Alliance Defense Fund.

There’s no question that Barnett is anti-gay. But she’s also just not very bright. Every time she opens her mouth the local news shows that she’s lying. Check out the articles and the two video Eyewitness News reports.

Can she be impeached? Is it even worth the effort?

Ha! Nice, Evan!

How dare you not take advantage of “so many ohter options for acknowledging your companion of life” that require more of your time and money. Just means you’re intolerant of her special status.

Amazing to me how many people actually think that their personal belief/opinion overrides how we live our lives.

Their Opinion > Our Lives = Peace and Harmony. Amazing.

I really liked the “so many other options” remark, too.

Let’s see…legal tomfoolery…civil unions…

What else?

MAYBE you could make matching teddy bears.


MAYBE you could take one of those adorable superhero pictures like they have at state fairs where you stick your heads through the hole…


Yeah, Barnett, just give me the damn marriage license.

Yeah, Barnett, just give me the damn marriage license.

Exactly. Just STFU already, hand me the marriage license–you don’t have to smile, and then go home at the end of the day with ALL the hate in your heart you muster and stew in it. Steeeeewwwww. Simmmmmmer. Fesssssster.

You can own your hate, lady, just gimme what the law done provided me.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children.
