Mr. Burroway, you must stop posting articles like this. You are overloading my schadenfreude quotient. I’m in danger of feeling pity for Maggie and Brian.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA, maybe when all 31 states who have voted on my rights apologize and reverse those votes.

Maggie Gallagher has written and article of the same title, over at

You should see the comment threads all their anti gay article generate.

Dr. Michael Brown’s article earlier this week had the title:
“The Hypocrisy of GLAAD.”

He and Joe Jervis had a bit of exchange. What seriously angers me is that Brown does so much spin, he could make anything look like butter.
He spins rejections of his dreck books as publishers being ‘afraid to publish the truth’.
I guess he doesn’t understand that legit publishers can’t peddle fiction as non fiction.

He and others spin the CAP plan as silencing Christians, and it’s the gay folks that are the ones being offensive.

Rather than own their words, they are deflecting them as the fault of gay people and how dare those gay people be so intolerant in their agenda to persecute!

Butter, I tells ya. BUTTER everywhere!

MattNYC,I agree with you on the coffee, but they do have reasonably decent tea.
