And look who showed up

While most protest to the marriage bill was celebrating an exorcism, the Chicago Police cordoned off a space in front of the UIC Forum – where the signing ceremony was being held – for protest, should anyone wish to do so. And look who showed up, our old buddy Peter LaBarbera, the head of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.

Poor, poor Peter. He looks a bit lonely.

Does it make me a bad person that I’m almost embarrassed for him?

Gawd, that’s pathetic. And he’s doin’ it all fer the Lard, too.
Must be lonely being a martyr for Jesus.

The idea that nature has a god is fairly conventional, I suppose. I’m not sure about this idea that marriage comes from nature, though, much less “marriage”.

All told, I’m pretty sold on the idea that many good things come from manufacturing and design. I’m not about to head out naked into jungle or savannah on some spurious notion that we must adhere resolutely to an order of nature.

As for nature’s god, if it’s Yahweh we’re talking about, my understanding is that he’d prefer us to remain clothed in public. Judging by the photo, Mr La Barbera seems to agree. So it appears he’s not a complete naturist.

I think that picture has been doctored–I can’t see any leather straps poking out…

Does Mother Nature know she has a god? I’d really like to get her autograph. Does anyone know which church she goes to?

Poor Porno Pete, poor Porno Pete, he looks so weary and forlorn and forlorn…sung to the tune of Poor Jud is dead, from Oklahoma.

Last “Man” Standing? (Yes, the designation is premature.)

While “Last Man Standing” normally refers to a winner of some sort, in the context of anti-gay bigots, it will refer to the one who was so stupid that he stuck it out to the end and became the LMS. So maybe this photo of Pete is prophetic.
