Don Schmierer “sets the record straight”

Timothy Kincaid

January 8th, 2010

schmiererWe tried diligently to get Don Schmierer to not go to Uganda. He went anyway.

We tried desperately to get Don Schmierer to speak out against the legislation proposed in Uganda to execute gay Ugandans or imprison them for life. He was silent.

In fact, Schmierer ignored us and the results of his international anti-gay activism until he was exposed on Rachel Maddow’s show. Then he issued a statement that appeared to be in conflict with the facts as we knew them to be.

Now he has told the Fox affiliate in Sacramento that it’s all a misunderstanding.

He says he thought he was preaching about open communication in parenting.

But now that his inbox is being flooded with hate-mail he says it’s all a misunderstanding.

“I’m trying to help people understand the differences and how to communicate and how to listen to each other.”

If Mr. Schmierer wishes to communicate, he knows how to reach us. If he wishes to clear up any misunderstandings, he can explain why his version of events contradict the video, news reports, and first hand accounts from the conference. We’d be happy to let him set the record straight – accurately, this time.

Between him and Maggie Gallagher’s complaints regarding the televising of the Prop. 8 court trial these folks REALLY can’t deal with accountability!

Come on people. You stuck your nose into government policy, and exclusively for the purpose of complicating gay lives.
Gay people who were at peace with YOU, with just getting married and catching some joy and prosperity in life.
None of which would effect your own pursuit to do the same.
That is if your pursuit of happiness is at the expense of that of gay folks.

Gay folks have tackled DUE PROCESS OF LAW, therefore transparency and seeing the process of law at work and it’s consequences is A RIGHT to all who have participated in the outcome of that process.

Lively and Gallagher are the utmost of COWARDS. Just. Cowards.

And they call their activity ‘fighting for morals and marriage’ respectively.

So, if they think themselves such committed soldiers.
Stand the fu*k up and OWN what you sowed!

oops, grammatical error.

That should read “unless your pursuit of happiness is at the expense of gay folks.”

Sorry. It’s early, hadn’t had the coffee yet!
