Timothy Kincaid won the bet:

Another day, another deadline…

Dear Jim,

I’ve hardly slept the last three days. Over the past week, I have been faced with the gut-wrenching decision of whether or not to launch Public Advocate’s Battleground Action Initiative. This program is designed to defend family values and real marriage in four states this November.

By Friday, I had given up hope that enough money would come in to pay for it. Then at the last minute, I saw a huge surge in donations! This gave me hope that America is still committed to fighting for real marriage and American morality.

But even with that blessed surge, there isn’t nearly enough. I wrestled with it all night. I prayed over it. And in the morning, I authorized my staff to launch the most crucial elements of the Battleground Action Initiative — even though we have not yet reached our fundraising goals. Now I am trusting that the money will come in time.

Please click here to make your largest single donation possible.

…P.S. The deadline is midnight tomorrow.  I am already committed…

“P.S. The deadline is midnight tomorrow. I am already committed.”

No, actually you aren’t really committed. But we all would like to see you psychologically “committed” while you’re wearing a straight-jacket sitting in a padded cell, shot up with Thorozine. I’d actually make a donation to that cause.

Is it just me? Or does it seem the most audacious gravitas to say there was a surge in donations?
I don’t think that happened at all, but that he’s just saying it to spur other people into thinking many others agree with what he’s doing.
So why not try and get the others who haven’t responded to think they are needed?
“The program is to defend family values and real marriage.”
I can’t help but think how brain damaged the people he reaches out to have to be to not think about how useless that program is.
Gay people are not the scourge of family values, cohesion or importance.
If any of these so called defenders brought up divorce, adultery, addiction, domestic violence and child abuse as the scourges against families and their safety, I’d see them AS defenders.

I really, REALLY want to laugh at the hyperbole they trade in. As if they are SUCH brave, courageous and successful warriors against the ‘homosexual agenda’.
They take swings at gay people who are defending marriage, families and children. In other words, there is no enemy, nothing destructive, nor who is violating anything for them to swing at.

They talk as if they need a big stick. But declaring war on those gay people who are peaceful is called a violation and oppression.
And apparently, only the truly intelligent and brave know the difference.

Regan: I’ll also note that this email is just an extension of Delgaudio’s usual pattern of alternating between using “it’s the end of the world” and “victory is in sight” approaches in his fundraising attempts.

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

Daniel FettyThe FBI’s annual Hate Crime Statistics aren’t as complete as they ought to be, and their report for 2004 was no exception. In fact, their most recent report has quite a few glaring holes. Holes big enough for Daniel Fetty to fall through.
