This is what you’ll find on the National Organization for Marriage’s facebook page right now.

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.”

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.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

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.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International. In this series of reports, I talk about what I learned there: the people who go to these conferences, the things that they hear, and what this all means for them, their families and for the rest of us.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing

Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council submitted an Amicus Brief to the Maryland Court of Appeals as that court prepared to consider the issue of gay marriage. We examine just one small section of that brief to reveal the junk science and fraudulent claims of the Family “Research” Council.

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count

Daniel FettyThe FBI’s annual Hate Crime Statistics aren’t as complete as they ought to be, and their report for 2004 was no exception. In fact, their most recent report has quite a few glaring holes. Holes big enough for Daniel Fetty to fall through.
