Umm... hold on a sec...

Let’s be clear about something: the homosexual lobby and their puppet politicians’ assault on Chick-fil-A is just the beginning.

You see, wealthy homosexual activists, such as the so-called Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, are not merely threatening, bullying, and attempting to destroy a great American business—they are declaring war on anyone who disagrees with their radical agenda.

And why? To bully and intimidate the media and enough politicians and activist judges to force homosexual marriage as the law of the land—thereby destroying the time-tested, God ordained, traditional institution of marriage.

Wait a minute…. who wrote this?

Okay, now we got it.

It’s getting harder every day to tell these people apart:

That’s why the National Organization for Marriage is fighting back to defend marriage from the activist bullies in the homosexual lobby but I need your immediate contribution of $50, $100, or as much as you can give right now to sustain the fight.

If the homosexual lobby gets its way—and it might if people of faith don’t immediately stand up to their bullying tactics—gay “marriage” will be imposed as the law of the land and the consequences will be profound. Consider:

  • Young children will be taught in public schools that it’s perfectly normal for boys to marry other boys. This is already happening in states like Massachusetts, where second grade children are taught about homosexual marriage in the classroom.
  • Religious non-profit organizations who disagree with the union of “one man and one man” will lose their tax-exempt status. Catholic Charities, the Salvation Army, and other religious services could be forced out of business.
  • The majority of Americans who support the historic understanding of marriage will be treated in law as bigots and racists.

…Remember: the only way to stop a bully is to fight back and fight harder. And if you make an immediate contribution, NOM will continue to expose and defeat the gay activist bullies who want to silence Christians and impose homosexual “marriage” on all of us.

“Great” minds think alike, eh? Wonder if there’s a daily fax from Hate Central that they can use for language like the RNC/Faux News.

I have no problem with any of those so-called consequences.

1. Young children ((might)) be taught that same-sex marriage is legal in their state. If that child happens to grow up to be gay, that information (that they have the same opportunity to get married, regardless of their sexual orientation) would be a very positive thing to hear. If the child is straight, it won’t impact their life at all.

2. If that religious non-profit organization is taking taxpayer money they cannot discriminate against gay citizens… who ALSO pay taxes, which in effect supports those organizations.

3. The majority of Americans who support the historic understanding of “same-race” marriage (that existed 45 years ago) ARE currently treated as bigots and racists. But they are NOT condemned for their bigotry under the law. That makes Brian Brown a liar. Shocking, I know.

Whether or not gay couples are allowed to marry, children WILL be taught that some people are gay and there is nothing wrong with that.

Whether or not gay couples are allowed to marry, organizations and businesses WILL Not be allowed to discriminate against gay people.

Whether or not gay couples are allowed to marry, Americans who do not respect gay people WILL continue to be allowed their personal opinions.

September 20, 1977

That was the day that an episode of Happy Days ran in which Fonzie jumped over a shark. On water skis. Wearing a swimsuit and leather jacket.

I wonder just what day will be noted as the day that NOM jumped the shark.

As Gore Vidal noted, the squalor never ends among persons to whom truth is no criterion.

Eugene has always presented himself in a hyperbolic panic. As things tighten up moneywise for NOM, I guess they see the advantage in Eugene’s approach.

MattNYC says it: Great minds think alike.

If you’ve got $50, $100, or as much as you can give right now to sustain the fight, send it to the American Foundation for Equal Rights (working on the Prop 8 case in the federal courts) or the groups in Washington, Minnesota, Maine, or Maryland working on marriage equality ballot items in this year’s election. We really need a ballot box victory on this question soon. And if SCOTUS takes the Prop 8 case, we’ll need to win there, too.

Mr. Kincaid,

I think the date is September 22, 2011.

It’s when Ms. Gallagher left the sinking ship.

Since then, it’s been one bad episode after another.

Brian likes to complain about the word marriage being redefined. It seems he has no problem redefining the word bully.

A bully is “a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people.”

Brown’s definition completely inverts the meaning. LGBT activism lobbies to overcome the legacy of bullying from an inherited inequality dating back to a time of criminalisation. This is the context of fighting back.

When Brown calls “to fight back and fight harder” he’s actually calling to double down on the beating before the victim gets away. He wants to change the definition of the word bully to mean the person who wont take their beating and stay down.

Catholic Charities was *not* forced out of business in Massachusetts.

First of all, they had already been adopting kids to gay couples before gay marriage:

Second, Catholic Charities voluntarily shuttered itself rather than comply with the law.

Third, “complying with the law” meant that if they wanted to follow their anti-gay doctrine (which I fully support their right to do), they could – they just had no recourse to state funds. Other religious adoption agencies (Mormons spring to mind) continue to run adoption agencies in the state.

I’m *so* tired of this paper-thin lie.

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
