Anti-Gay Roundup on Obama at HRC: “He Will Lose His Soul To Damnation”

Jim Burroway

October 11th, 2009

While I’m still disappointed in the President, I liked the speech for the reasons listed here. But I left out a reason: President Barack Obama’s remarks before the Human Rights Campaign have anti-gay activists in a tizzy. For example:

Peter LaBarbera: “Obama\’s Expanding Anti-Christian Agenda… President Obama used the bully pulpit tonight to defy the Creator, by brazenly declaring before a homosexual activist audience that homosexuality-based relationships are ‘just as real and admirable’ as normal relationships between a man and a woman..”

Family “Research” Council: “President Obama Ignores Election Mandate, Pushes Radical Social Policies”

Maine pastor Grant Swank: “Because of his double-tongued speech, he is not of the God of the Bible but of the demonic. There is no in-between. One is either in league with the Holy Spirit or the unholy spirit. …He will lose his soul to damnation if he continues on that course.”

What would Porno Pete know about a “normal” relationship?

My my my, they are in a tizzy!

Once again they push the myth that the civil rights of minorities should be decided by the majority.

Umm Obama got elected because of those positions, how is that ignoring the mandate by restating what got him there?

Actually he’s ignoring his mandate by not being more aggressive with these issues.

You’re quoting Pastor Swank? You DO know that guy’s completely demented, don’t you? To give an idea…that was him in one of his more lucid-sounding (though still completely asinine) moments.

Interesting that neither of these 3 websites has a space for visitors to leave comments.

But then again, the religious right wingers don’t want comments. “Just shut up, do as your told and give us your money. We know how to spend it.”

Did we really expect anything else?

Dear Baby Jesus, could You arrange for that Rapture thingy to be just a little early? I’m not trying to rush You or anything, but it would really be wonderful if the religious wingnuts and H8ters could all get out of town just a little early and leave the planet to those of us who seem to enjoy living here. You know? (Oh… I forgot. Of course You know. Heh heh, sorry.)

The philistines quote Levitucus 20:13 to condemn our love.

Yet, where are these loose-lipped pinheads when other “laws” in the rest of Leviticus 20 are broken?

I call that hipocracy.

And yes, I think the pinhead philistines should be insulted in print

Thank you.

I looked at these three sites.

1-Lababera site doesn’t seem to allow comments. pls correct me if I’m wrong.

2-FRC does have n forum. Looks old though. Don’t feed them. Don’t post there. They talk about tons of issues; Not just us. Some interesting insights in there.

3-That Maine “preacher” nutjob Swank’s site doesn’t seem to allow comments either. Again pls correct me if I’m wrong.

I wouldn’t want to comment on any of their sites except to explain that we are a loving couple. We have family and we have friends. And ask why they act like they hate us so much. AND IT IS HATE! I HAVE KNOWN THIS BEFORE! I KNOW HATE WHEN I FEEL IT!

I don’t have to hide behind The Holy Bible to tell someone to go to Hell. I’ll tell them right in the face!

Peter LaBarbera: President Obama used the bully pulpit tonight to defy the Creator…

Poor fragile God, injured once again by a wee human.
