Email of the Day

Let's just make stuff up and see if anyone notices.

The National Day of Prayer was just two days ago. And all this week my heart and prayers have been drawn to the struggle in Washington State. Right now, brave pro-Family activists are fighting to gather enough signatures to place real marriage on the November ballot.

Already more than a hundred thousand people have taken the step to place them name on the referendum.

But while Public Advocate is sending letters to a thousand churches and community leaders asking for their support — the Homosexual Lobby has launched a website to advertise the names and home addresses of every Washingtonian who signs in support of real marriage…

…and they are calling on their hordes of supporters to attack the brave signers anyway they can.

They tried these same tactics in California over Prop 8 and countless people were hurt by their terror campaign.

On this special week I ask that you pray for our struggle in Washington that we might defend real marriage. But I also ask that you pray for those fighting against us; pray that they handle themselves with greater restraint and compassion and even that they renounce this fight altogether.

…P.S. Please prayerfully consider chipping in with a donation of $10 or more to help Public Advocate fight for traditional values.

We are still waiting on independently verified reports of that phantom “terror campaign.”

There’s a reason he said “countless people.” Until they find any, they can’t count them.

This is exactly the same false message the proponents of Prop 8 used to panic people into supporting their assault on equality. Let us have learned from the past. Don’t let it work again!

I do not believe his statement or claim that “Already more than a hundred thousand people have taken the step to place them[sic] name on the referendum” is true. As there are two different issues here, it *MIGHT* be true overall… I’m looking for a source on this, however.

If I remember correctly, both the backers of referendum 74 and initiative 1192 are having some difficulties getting signatures and are considering hiring paid signature gatherers.

Early June is the deadline for referendum 74 supporters, who need to compile more than 120,000 signatures before June 6. Backers of the ballot initiative 1192 need 241,000 signatures, but have until July 6 to obtain them.

You would think that if anyone actually got attacked over signing an anti-gay petition…the Family Reasearch Council and all those other groups would’ve made sure it was national news by lunchtime. I’ve never heard of any such thing, therefore logic dictates it probably didn’t even happen.

Of course…these are people who have been known to consider dirty looks on the street an “attack” and being called out for bad behavior as “persecution” so I guess if you go with their logic…

If somebody ever did persecute these people for anything, they’d fold up faster than a cheap suit, wouldn’t they?

Why waste your time with more of the same? You’ve obviously been saying the wrong prayers for the last 43 years, with the evidence being that anyone not in pathological denial can see that our side is on the cusp of final triumph in the long struggle. Maybe the key for us has been that our gay prayers are simply much more fabulous.

Absolutely no doubt about it they would have.

After that infamous email he wrote about waking up in the middle of the night and discovering a secret warehouse filled with evil homosexuals mass producing gay propaganda and saying “you’re too late, Delgaudio, bwa ha ha ha!”, I kinda feel like the guy is clearly mentally ill, perhaps with paranoid schizophrenia and it’s rather unsporting to post these emails mocking him.

Actually, if you check through the comments on these…people have commented that have met the man. Based on what they’ve said, I’d guess he does this shit for the money and maybe for fun, too.

He has all the “i’s” dotted and all the “T’s” crossed so this bullshit of asking people for money to fight something that doesn’t exist is legal.

On his wikipedia page though, it says that all his organization apparently does to “promote conservative causes” is pay him large sums of money.

Yeah, he’s sane…and he’s a complete slime ball, the kind of guy you wouldn’t want to buy a toothbrush from much less a used car.

“P.S. Please prayerfully consider chipping in with a donation of $10 or more to help Public Advocate fight for traditional values.”

Love that post script. It says, “by the way, I almost forgot to mention. Just if, you know, in a moment of piety you could sling us a couple of spondooliks. Ten bucks maybe. Nothing too taxing. Ten, or more if you’ve got it. You know, when you’re praying… Just saying…, ten, or prayerfully, considerably more.”

The way he asks the question itself should be all the evidence anyone needs that this guy is a weasel…and I realize that might be insulting to actual weasels.

Well, at least he spelled the word “hordes” correctly . . .

Where is that “Box of Rocks” when you need it? (Or would it be more proper to refer to “Box of Rocks” as a “him,” “her”, or “them”? H-m-m-m-m-m….)

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

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
