The National Organization For Marriage‘s co-founder Maggie Gallagher says laws are really, really “hard to undo,” and therefore gay people should be “gently” told, “not this, not now.” Repeating the current religious right talking point, the 51-year old anti-gay liar and professional victim says, “I did not decide to debate gay marriage, gay-marriage advocates did.” Maggie merely decided to start an entire organization dedicated to denying gay people their civil rights, and get funding so secret she’s been willing time and time again to go to court to prevent people from knowing who’s behind her. How many millions have flowed from the Mormon Church and the Vatican into NOM’s coffers?…
John Stossel of Fox News explains that he dressed up (er, down?) as a homeless person because he heard some brag that they make $80,000 a year begging for money, and in America “we are turning into a nation of freeloaders.” Stosssel claims he took in, in a few hours, what would amount to $24,000 a year, as David Edwards at The Raw Story reports. Apparently, that’s cause for alarm and Stossel then warned his Fox News friends that people shouldn’t give money to the homeless, apparently because $24,000 a year is a lot of money? I doubt he could live on that.
More on NOM: “Dump General Mills now has 18,157 pledges to ‘look for substitutes’ to General Mills brands. That’s up a whopping 154 people from just Tuesday. If this were a petition to get Sheriff Andy to let Opie join the baseball team, that would be astounding,” writes Box Turtle Bulletin’s Timothy Kincaid, who says, “the fire is gone, the passion is gone, and only a tiny fragment of the population is sufficiently opposed to marriage equality to type in their name in an online list.”
“Mitch McConnell doesn’t care about you,” Matthew Rothschild at The Progressive says, calling the Senate Minority Leader “heartless,” and daring the GOP to run on a platform of denying health care coverage.
“There’s a lot of people that Mitt is considering right now” for Vice President, Mrs. Mittens says of her husband who will never, ever enter the White House as President. The “shocker” is that he’s looking a women. Really? Why is this news? The AP says is is, writing Romney “largely has been keeping secret” the fact that the campaign is vetting women and men. Whoa.
“Covenant Christian Academy in Harrisburg, PA is being accused of suspending a student because he is gay and firing his mother, a teacher at the school, for supporting her son.” Not only is that disgusting, but it’s legal. And what’s worse? Your tax dollars go to support this.
Florida Governor Rick Scott lied on Fox News, CNN and CNBC over the weekend, and Politifact calls him out –and his Obamacare lies “false.”
“Cancer, Oral Sex and Presidential Politics: Did Bill Clinton Cause an Increase in Throat Cancer?“ The infamous Bryan Fischer for some unknown reason is quoted in the Huffington Post talking about oral sex and Bill Clinton — but, as HuffPo mentions, not herpes: “Fischer is most famous for his gay-bashing diatribes. But in a recent attack on Democrats, he also took on heterosexual oral sex (which he cryptically refers to as “the kind of activity that President Clinton practiced in the Oval Office”)… So, sorry Mr. Fischer. Your theory on is wrong. When it comes to oral sex, Bill Clinton was product of his times rather than, as it were, a taste-maker.”
