In it ta win it.

Dear Jim,

The state of Maine is once again under attack by the radical Homosexual Lobby. Radical activists have forced a homosexual “marriage” initiative — dubbed Maine Question 1 — onto the ballot this November. Despite the fact that Maine voters rejected this very same issue three years ago. Local sources believe the Homosexual Lobby’s plan is to simply “wear out” the pro-Family voters there with fight after fight. And it could very well work.

Many allies of the Family are still recovering from the first fight and simply do not have the energy or resources to pick it up again so soon. Local elements of the Homosexual Lobby are reporting they already have $5 million to spend for homosexual “marriage,” and experts expect more will come in from their powerful allies. The pro-Family forces reportedly have less than 40% of that to fight for real marriage.

…And while you and I will know that even if the Homosexual Lobby does win in Maine, it will be due solely to their vast wealth — but the Homosexual Lobby will use this as “proof” that public opinion has turned in their favor. They will take this one false-positive result and shove it down the throats of politicians in state after state.

…Needless to say, this is a fight Public Advocate must take up. I am still devising our strategy and I don’t want to reveal our hand to the enemy too early. But I need you to be ready to help however you can when the time comes. This November could change everything, if we are not prepared.

And, of course —

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

Let me just say that I wish Eugene all the luck in the world, especially with the fundraising part. In fact, everyone I meet who might be inclined to donate vast sums of money to fight against marriage equality, I intend to refer them to Eugene instead of all those tired people in Maine. Cuz you just know that every dollar they give him will be money well spent.

This could quite possibly be Eugene’s stupidest email of all time, and that’s saying something with his track record. According to Eugene, whoever raises more money during a campaign automatically wins… regardless of how people actually feel about an issue. Plus, according to Eugene, if you “wear out” the public year after year (or in this case, a mind-boggling two times over a four year period), they’ll vote for your side because they just can’t take any more badgering. Yeah, that happens all the time. Oh, and according to Eugene, once you vote on any issue, no one can ever vote on that issue again. Because that’s exactly how our government works. Right, Eugene?

The best part is how he’s already trying to dismiss the real possibility that the public would willingly vote to allow gay couples to marry. That’s impossible, according to Eugene. They’ve obviously been overpowered by the wealthy Homosexual Lobby. Of course, Eugene didn’t explain how people are being forced to vote for homosexual “marriage” against their will. But I’m sure if you give him $10, his next mailer will explain it in detail. Right, Eugene?

Eugene has promised all the people who vote no on marriage equality in Maine, every single person who votes no, will receive a life-size cardboard cutout of himself as a lovely thank you gift!

It’s motivating thousands of Mainers to support equality! “I felt forced to vote yes because the thought of being associated with Eugene was more disgusting than the thought of two men getting married!”

“I am still devising our strategy and I don’t want to reveal our hand to the enemy too early.”
Sane people say “political opponents” or “the other side”; ENEMY puts it on a war footing, although the weapons (chemical, biological, nuclear) are part of the strategy not to be disclosed.

An enemy is someone you hate. Hate is a waste of time.

He just made a big mistake. His email solicited contributions specifically for the Maine initiative campaign. If he makes any expenditures, he will have to register a PAC and disclose the donors.

I doubt that he will spend very much of what he takes in. To date, the entirety of the Public Advocate’s contributions to Maine and Minnesota have been $0 and the entirety of its contributions to WA have totaled $250.

It is pretty obvious that he siphons off a lot of anti-gay money. In that regard, I consider the Public Advocate to be a net benefit for gay people.

Well, I won’t lie to you: while I absolutely support BtB’s core commitment to tracking, recording, and publicizing anti-gay rhetoric, thereby shining light into the darker crevasses of our society and engaging in a frontal assault on bigotry with relentless fact-checking and honesty… I’m still tired as heck of seeing this guy’s smug rictus on the fair pages of this blog every other day or so.

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.

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.
