Dan Savage has accepted NOM’s Brian Brown challenge to a debate to the death. It’s Orville Redenbacher time.

Oh, this may not end well…

You have this rule in your game of baseball, don’t you? The mercy rule? When a team is so far out in front they call it quits? Could the same rule be enforced if this “Clash of the Titans” (titter) ever takes place? Even from down here in the Great Southern Land we’d hear the resounding crack of an ego…and an ideal whose time has long since expired. Poor Brian…

I really hope Brian Brown is dumb enough to go through with it.

Should be interesting and fun.

On another note that just gave me a hoot. I come here and get an advertisement for Mystik Lubricants – Lubrication Domination. And my first thought is, I’ve never heard about that lube.

Then I read futher, “the heavy-duty engine oil specially formulated for farm machines. I’m still not getting it, suddenly I’m thinking of myself as a well-oiled farm machine because, well, I make my living off the farm. And then yeah, it finally gets to me that they really are talking about tractors and combines. Our browsing history follows everywhere, too much time on Ag.com and other farming sites.

I wonder if I’ll start seeing advert’s for Boy Butter on the National Corn Growers Association website?

Brown won’t do it. He’ll probably say something about lying down with swine and complain more about Dan using swear words, which apparently invalidates all of his arguments somehow.

“It’s Orville Redenbacher time.”

Okay, this whole thing is already starting badly: I absolutely loath popcorn. If my issue were only with the taste, I could easily avoid it, but it’s the smell I find utterly disgusting.


May 5th, 2012

I think that in honor of Richard Rush’s non-sequitur, we should all have a viscous, nasty, 50+ comment post arguing about popcorn.

“The first time a Christian has volunteered to be thrown in the lion’s den.” I prefer to view this more as Perseus battling Medusa, with Dan (and his excellent biceps) as Perseus. I’d rather avoid images where Brian Brown is somehow the victim in this, as the far right xtians all too often this past decade have tried to pretend that they somehow are persecuted just for “innocently” following their beliefs. As far as the Medusa image goes, well, for those of us old enough to recall, I’d like to tell Brown, about his Brylcreem, yes, “a little dab’ll do ya.”

I’m willing to take bets that Brian Brown will back off, citing he cannot enter a forum where no civility can be guaranteed because Dan Savage called him a motherfucker.

Anyone? Anyone…?

I think you’re right, Regan.

Since BB said Dan can select the venue, and since Dan is from Seattle, I hope they meet up at Dan’s local Starbucks.

Brian Brown will fold faster than Superman on laundry day.

BB is one dissertation away from his PhD which his mother is probably weeping over the fact that he didn’t finish, so we cannot claim that he has a low intelligence. Know your enemy.

Depends on what that doctorate is in. Dr. Michael Brown’s degree is in Eastern languages, NOT sociology or anthropology on gay lives.
Yet, that’s virtually ALL he writes about wherever anyone will let him.

I’ve yet to see any titles on Eastern languages in Brown’s lexicon of books (all of which are vanity published).

Dr. Laura Schleshinger’s credential is in kineisiology. That’s physical mechanics and movement, NOT relationship or life coaching.

It’s fraudulent to use one’s credential contra to the subject on which people depend on you to be expert.
Peddling IDEOLOGY, against civil law is exactly what Matt Barber and Brian Brown and Michael Brown are doing.

I know that the Regent University agenda was to place evangelical lawyers, political scientists and so on into high level positions in government,especially D.C to influence the political process more towards theocratic.
It looks like Liberty U and the Alliance Defense Fund have the same plan.
And it bears noting, the demographic of people who think themselves entitled to such power.
White, heterosexual, Christian men.
And of course, engaging blacks, and women and some Hispanics to their cause, but in no way would anyone like that hold influential offices of power.

Such a BURDEN do hetero, white Christian men like Brian Brown et al carry!

No way he’ll accept an invitation worded like that. Get real.

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.

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
