Also, “vengeance is mine,” sayeth Maggie Gallagher.

They have pulled down their Facebook page for the moment.
Maybe that’s one more thing to celebrate, but not nearly as huge as marriage in New York!

This is a tweet from God.

Now that marriage equality has come to New York and thwarted my divine will, I think I’m going to send a tornado, a hurricane, flood, or a tsunami to punish them. I’m going to have to do it in the morning after a good night’s sleep, though. I wouldn’t want to miss New York and hit Kansas, Florida, Missouri, or Hawaii instead.

And if you are wondering why there are more than 140 characters in this tweet, well

I AM THE LORD!

I hadn’t realized Jesus was such a tit-for-tat spiteful jerk. They must have him confused with someone who wasn’t about love and social justice.

Did anyone else see NOM’s New York “poll” showing that 57% of New Yorkers are against gay marriage? The one where about 70% of the people they polled were over the age of 50?

No wonder Jesus is crying:

They lied. They prayed. They deceived. They fasted. Then they lied, prayed, deceived, and fasted some more. And then they lost, not only to the gays in New York, but to this years record-breaking brutal battering of the Bible Belt with tornadoes.

Don’t they ever get the message. How dense are they?

Sorry, I didn’t mean to double post. Please delete the first one. I pressed “post” when I thought I pressed “preview.”

I’m savouring NOM’s tears.

Those are tears of joy! Tho it’s not always easy being in God’s good side, it is definitely worth it. GOD is “setting his people free”.

Yay NY!

Interesting contrast:

Maggie on why a majority party blocking a vote in a state Senate is an unfair thing to do, and why those who do it should face consequences:

“It’s one thing to vote no on a bill – but quite another to use your position to block the will of the Senate”

http://www.nationformarriage.org/c.omL2KeN0LzH/b.5072881/k.BE7A/Iowa/siteapps/advocacy/ActionItem.aspx

Now, Maggie on why a majority party NOT blocking a vote in a state Senate is such a bad thing, and why those who refuse to do it should face consequences:

“N.Y, [sic] Republicans did not have to bring gay marriage up for a vote: What does it mean that they passed gay marriage in N.Y.?…Sad that the N.Y. GOP has caved. Consequences to be continued.”

Isn’t it just DELICIOUS to see how NOM reacts when THEY’RE on the wrong end of the stick?

I hope we get many more opportunities to see Maggie bitch, moan, whine and cry.

We have to do anything and EVERYTHING to make sure that those 4 Republicans who voted with us.

…get re-elected.

And just for gravy, take down some of those, especially BALL, who voted against us.

Marcus, your comment is rich. I want to use it on my blog.

Maggie Gallagher will never appear on a stamp, never be honored for her actions. No one honors the KKK. No one will honor NOM in a decade or two. People will just be puzzled why someone wasted their live being such a hateful and ornery woman.

We need to get back to authentic Biblical marriage — which includes a man and his sister (Cain and Abel), or a man with multiple wives (numerous Old Testament figures).

Curiously, you can’t read their Facebook page without turning off secure browsing. Uh, no thanks.

Well done, New York. WELL DONE!!!!!!

So-called NOM lost. Yay!

It’s instructive to look at the states where interracial marriage was made illegal ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US_miscegenation.svg )

Todau, it’s the same troglodytes, the same narrow obscurantist drongoes who oppose gay marriage as those who said that interracial marriage would lead to the collapse of civilization. Rubbish then, rubbish now.

Logic and common sense has triumphed.

Mark– cain and abel were brothers. they were probably gay married.
