Oh, puh-lease. Peterboy is still alive and kicking and spouting his hateful nonsense in the name of his god. If there’s a better indication that there is no such thing as god, I have yet to hear of it.

I always forget that we, unfortunately, have to claim him. Of course, that also makes his reaction all the more enjoyable.

Odd. I could swear the heavens opened and a choir of angels descended singing a song of congratulations. But maybe The Peter isn’t part of God’s ‘friends and family’ plan.

Well, gee Petey LaB, it’s not like when you were seven years old and you really didn’t want to go to Aunt Mary’s second wedding and you HAD to because your parents MADE you.
And you HAD to sit in church for TWO hours and you couldn’t even go to the bathroom and your mother made you wear the suit with the pants that were getting a little too small for you anyway.
And you dreaded all the aunts and cousins that kept wanting to kiss and hug you and smother you.
But at least the cake looked really good.
It’s not like THAT Petey. Because you’re NOT INVITED.
And nobody gives a shit how you feel.
Nobody gives a shit about you at all.
Not a whole lot of people even know who you are, but for you having a tantrum now and then about other people’s weddings, other people’s marriages, and other’s people ability to take care of each other.
People, you don’t know and don’t HAVE to know.
The arrogance of YOU, little Petey. What’s it to you?

At least Peter acknowledges that 15 states have had the courage to defy God. As we see repeatedly, the courage to defy God is what’s required if we want to make the world a better place.

Someone should tell Peter that God stays out of politics.

I’d phrase it differently (defy our presumptions and comfortable assumptions about God) but I agree.

God made Her presence very much felt at my same-sex wedding. And if Porno Pete has a problem with that, well, it’s his problem.

2/3 of the world–the 2/3 of the world that thinks the Christian story is nonsense– has been defying god for nearly 2000 years, and god doesn’t see to have cared all that much.

But this– THIS!!!!!– is what is finally going to get the Holy Knickers into an incredibly uncomfortable bunch.

Petey dear? YOU LOST!!!!

Laurie Higgins and the IFI: YOULOST!!!!!

Maggie and Brian and NOM, Oh MY!– YOU LOST!!!!!!


Or perhaps something a bit more grown up.

Got some strong feelings about this, Ben in Oakland? :))

(Btw, November 18 is the 10th anniversary of release of the verdict in Goodridge v DPH. Also known as the Day Of Dancing In The Streets to some.)

This dude seems to be awful excited by what he calls other people’s “perversions.” Is it jealousy or what? God doesn’t seem to care who a person has sex with, only the religious people do because sex is useful to control people.

From what I have heard Mr. LaBarbera sounds like a bit of a ‘pervert’ his own self.

If I were a NALT Christian, I’d spread the word that fundamentalist Christians are perverts.

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.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International. In this series of reports, I talk about what I learned there: the people who go to these conferences, the things that they hear, and what this all means for them, their families and for the rest of us.

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
