Thomas Peters Drowning in Denial River

Rob Tisinai

June 26th, 2013

From Thomas Peters, Communications Director at NOM:

His little mental horizon is focused entirely on SCOTUS’ failure to go to the very limits of what it could do, stamping his foot at our celebration and insisting, “But you shouldn’t be happy!”

Hey, whatever it takes to convince your donors you’re not a complete waste of space, I guess.

You should read the blog post, its full of pure whining.

These people are sick and crazy. So glad the sun is finally setting on them.

Poor tommy, Drowning in denial.

I myself am swimming, splashing, indeed, doing the backstroke in Schadenfreude.

I just set up a schadenfreude slip-n-slide. Feel free to play.

When I came out during the summer of Stonewall, I never ever imagined that bigots would become so entertaining.

Ah, I am indulging in that guilty pleasure…slipping and sliding with abandon.

I also want to pass on a loverly quip I read in a NY Times comment section. A poster from Colorado replied to a positive comment that she especially liked the fact that the decision on DOMA “cheesed-off” Scalia. I got much amusement from that phrase “cheesed-off” which I hadn’t heard in a long time.

I was thinking “is it wrong of me to get as much satisfaction (or more) from envisioning the wailing and gnashing of teeth in the anti-gay camp as from envisioning the happiness of couples who benefit from the decision?”

Naaah. I believe I’ll take a trip down the schadenfreude slip n’ slide. Cannonball right into the river of denial!

Thomas Peters is one of the reasons that I actually might start tweeting one of these days — As in “And @AmericanPapist got nothing.”

I started tweeting a couple of weeks ago because I was tired of sending email questions to prominent anti-gays and having them stop responding when I got to the strong points. I figured if I tweeted my arguments it’d put a little more pressure on them to think about it and respond as others could see they were hiding from the truth. I’d say that worked a little bit, but not as much as I’d hoped. Matt Barber blocked me after I got him with several zingers.
