On Thursday, NOM will be touring Crazyville

Timothy Kincaid

July 27th, 2010

On Thursday, the National Organization for Marriage will be holding a Summer for Marriage rally in St. Cloud, Minnesota. However, unlike most stops, this time they will be at a church, the Granite City Baptist Church. (Chicago Tribune)

Granite City Baptist Church Pastor Dennis Campbell tells WJON radio that the organization contacted him about bringing the rally to St. Cloud and he agreed to host because it has a message he supports.

Campbell is an interesting fellow. And the messages that he supports are unique. For example, back in March, probably about the time that NOM was putting together their tour, Campbell took out an ad in the St. Cloud Times to answer the question, Does the Islamic Religion Represent a Threat to America?

Christians are being driven from their homes, murdered, and enslaved in Islamic nations according to William J. Murray, Chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition. Islam is extending its influence over Europe and the United States. Statistics claim there are 9 million, but with illegal immigrants, it is probably closer to 15 million, according to a missionary that grew up in Central Asia. He said Uzbekistan, where he grew up, was 88% Islam. It is projected that in 30 years there will be 50 million Moslems in the USA.

How do Moslems seek to take control of a nation? Moslems seek to influence a nation by immigration, reproduction, education, the government, illegal drugs, and by supporting the gay agenda.

Oh yes, folks, gays are tools of the “Moslems” who seek to overthrow America and force everyone to be Moslems. And when NOM’s Big Bus of Animus pulls up at Granite City Baptist, not only will it be protecting America from gay people, but from Moslems as well.

And Campbell not only knows these amazing things, but he is passing them on to the next generation. At the Granite City Baptist Academy, they teach that secular “students are being brainwashed into a contemporary blend of all religions through classroom myths, rituals, symbols, and multicultural experiences” and that

Secular textbooks are inappropriate for Christian children. Secular publishers are more concerned about being politically correct than historically and scientifically accurate. Publishers are pressured to portray feminists, homosexuals, and Muslims in a positive light.

What a bunch of wackadoodles; NOM should feel right at home. Though, perhaps Maggie Gallagher shouldn’t mention her Hindu husband while she’s in St. Cloud. I doubt Pastor Dennis is all that fond of Hindus either.

According to the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, “Moslem and Muslim are basically two different spellings for the same word.” But the seemingly arbitrary choice of spellings is a sensitive subject for many followers of Islam. Whereas for most English speakers, the two words are synonymous in meaning, the Arabic roots of the two words are very different. A Muslim in Arabic means “one who gives himself to God,” and is by definition, someone who adheres to Islam. By contrast, a Moslem in Arabic means “one who is evil and unjust” when the word is pronounced, as it is in English, Mozlem with a z.

Don’t forget, also, that St. Cloud is part of Michelle Bachmann’s district… not that the entire area is in love with her, but a significant number have voted for her.

Bachmann’s district makes up St. Cloud and the northern and eastern suburbs of the Twin Cities. One other city in the district (Lino Lakes) passed an English only law last night if that gives any idea of the idiots living there. Its a classic example of gerrymandering. The irony is that the district directly south of hers is represented by the first Muslim elected to the House – Keith Ellison.

They’re desperate to find a place where they can get their supporters to turn out in the upper tens.

“gays are tools of the “Moslems” who seek to overthrow America and force everyone to be Moslems.”

Timothy, you have it exactly backwards.

We are the mighty ‘mo’s, and we pull the strings on our moslem/muslim puppets.

Bwaaaaaaaaaaaahhhaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaa!

I guess that Maggie had better not let that lunatic know that she’s a Roman Catholic and Brian Brown had better not reveal his ties to Opus Dei or they will get burned at the stake on the church’s front lawn as the Whores of Babylon they are, or at least whores for lucre.

At least the gNOMes will be able to keep the nasty homos at bay since it’s inside a church.

Well, there is no reason why “concerned” do not contact him to let him know that the leader of the so called Christians Warriors for marriage is sleeping with a (possibly) non Christian.

This “pastor” considers Magster as hell-bound as the vilest homo or Muslim. That, like Marinelli’s blog, is priveleged information.

Well, when it comes to hatred for gays they are united, even if Maggie Moo’s hubby is not a Christian:

I appreciate your contact.

Before I finalized my decision, I talked with the Christian Law Association. They encouraged me to have the NAM come to support marriage, because Minnesota is one of the next states the opposition is focusing on for gay marriage legislation passage.

The CLA further said the rally would give us an opportunity to give out the gospel.

I am planning to give the invocation, and we will be distributing water bottles with a tract proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven.

If you are in this area, you are encouraged to take a stand by joining us.

We are not promoting Muslims, but we are promoting the Biblical definition of marriage which is one man and one woman for life.

So there you have it, for all they care her husband could worship an elephant, so long as he hates gays too.

Maggie better keep her Hindu husband in the in the airtight box that she’s been keeping him in since taking the helm at her Christo fascist organization.

Has ANYONE ever seen Mr. Maggie?

He probably thinks we were attacked on 9/11 by Al Gayda.

Maggie Gallagher is a brilliant woman fighting a courageous battle. Most of the social ills of our day can be traced back to the loosening of sexual standards, the cultural prohibitions that formed good families and kept them together. The gay movement is just the last stage of the sexual revolution that has been destroying society for 45 years and Gallagher is striving valiantly to arrest it.

kosle,

No doubt you think that civil freedom and equality are things which are only to be doled out to those with whom you agree. In which case you would find Gallagher to be brilliant, as she too only believes in liberty for those with whom she agrees (which is no liberty at all).

I, however, find Jefferson to be brilliant. And Thomas Paine. And Jesus Christ. And so many of the other thinkers who believed that the best life is achieved when all have fair access and an equal standing. Of course many of them did not see this in terms of gay people, but their principles have survived the moments and circumstances of their era and are as brilliant today as when they applied them.

Gallagher would have been appalled at any of them and thought that they were destroying society. Had Maggie lived at the time of any of the freedom lovers, she would have valiantly strived to arrest their movements. And you would have applauded her.

Incidentally, kosle, you do realize that by posting the above you are leaving the impression that you think that Moslems are trying to take over America by supporting the gay agenda… or did you even read the commentary?

What social ills? We’re better off than we’ve ever been. You really want to turn back the clock to where irrational prejudice was predominant?

Are we talking about the same Maggie Galagher who got pregnant out of wedlock, didn’t marry the father of her kid, married someone out of her own religion and now walks around telling people how they should live their lives according to her standards?

Look around you! Women are already getting pregnant out of wedlock, not getting married and marrying late.

If Maggie was so courageous, she would talk about these things, she would bring her non-christian husband to all those rallies, he would stand by her side as she spews her nonsense. She would bring her family and her “gay friends”.

Maggie Moo is as brave as a monkey in front of a lake with a hungry lion behind him.

Kosle, since you spoke of “the sexual revolution that has been destroying society for 45 years. . .“, that would be starting in 1965, which happens to be the year the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a law in Connecticut banning the use of contraceptives (Griswold v. Connecticut). So, do you view that as the tragic first step that has been “destroying society.”

Where exactly did you get your master’s degree in social science?

The sexual reovlution has been destroying osciety for 45 years.

Not greed. not war. not degradation of the environment. not rampant consumerism. not party-centered politics. not racial and religious discirmination. Not poverty. not drugs. not corrupt corporations and politicians. Not divisive social issues that only consewrvative christians care about. not crime. not depletion of our treasury and national honor. not the decay of our once envy-of-the-worlsd educational system.

Funny, how for fundamentalists, all of the worlds problems are caused by sex that other poeple are having. Do you know how really old testament you sound?

and yet, the world has continued to survive.

And of course, the merely collateral damage that has been inflicted on gay people is of course of no consequence at all. not the murders. not aids. not laws atatcking our fmailies, not sodomy laws. Not DADT. none of it.

Sexual immorality as defined by conservative Christians. That’s all of it.

To quote George Washington, “It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights, for, happily, the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.”

STAY HOME. DO NOT PROTEST THIS NOM EVENT IN ST CLOUD. NOM is only looking for confrontation. So they can document “harassment and intimidation” from gay people they will then use to defend not disclosing their donor names to the states where they have funded anti-gay marriage ballot initiatives.

Don’t give them the ammunition. Stay home.
