You know, no matter how nice Maggie Gallagher and company tries to dress up the National Organization for Marriage’s rhetoric, when the organization is not successful, it always goes back to basic homophobia and fear tactics such as the following “gays are coming after your children” ad it ran in Rhode Island recently.

Linda Hirshman has written a pungent history of how gay and lesbian Americans transformed themselves, in less than half a century, from a despised minority that dared not speak its name—or did so on pain of bashing in Greenwich Village, assassination in San Francisco, crucifixion in Laramie, Wyoming, snickers and agonized death everywhere—into the vigorous core of a new moral majority that occupied American culture (not without opposition), changed pharmaceutical testing, became an electoral bloc and spawned new specialties in wedding planning.

The “organization” One Million Moms — actually some dudes on Facebook who hate homosexuality with an astonishingly acute blazing hatred and get money from a SPLC-designated hate group to pursue their all-consuming hatred that’s garnered such incredible success — has decided that the comics industry has crossed a bright line by revealing the gayitude of [...]

The GOP nomination is kinda like The Highlander: There can only be one. With nominees dropping like flies off the rotted corpse of what was once the Grand Old Party, by the time the clown car rolls into the Golden State on June 5, there may only be two dudes left: Mitt Rmoney and Fred Karger.

I hope the LGBT community and the broad progressive community appreciate the full irony of this decision. Obama officially thinks it is appropriate to use his executive power to buy a drone from a government contractor and use that drone to execute you without trial, but he won’t use his executive power to tell that same contractor they can’t fire you for being gay.

As many of you have probably heard, Maggie Gallagher has stepped down as chair of the National Organization for Marriage.
Details are extremely sketchy, but NOM has put on a brave face on the announcement by giving accolades to Gallagher and introducing, with much fanfare, her replacement – law professor and tea party favorite, John Eastman.

In something which should be remembered – because I have a feeling that it may be the opening salvo to something huge and sinister – NY Archbishop Timothy Dolan has sent a letter to President Obama claiming that he is alarmed about recent actions by the President’s administration that supposedly “escalate the threat to marriage and imperil the religious freedom of those who promote and defend marriage.”

On the National Organization for Marriage’s blog, NOM president Brian Brown is raising a fuss about a disastrous debate he had on the Fox Network show Stossel two weeks ago.
Brown’s biggest adversary wasn’t the person he was debating, David Haryansi, but host John Stossel and the audience. And this week, Stossel continued to criticize Brown’s argument and performance in a column.

GOP 2012 Clown Car occupant Rick Santorum called for the Homobigot Waaaambulance last night when Piers Morgan had the nerve to challenge him on his public opinion of civil marriage equality.
Like the National Organization of Marriage’s Maggie Gallagher, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, and Matt Bam Bam Barber of Liberty Counsel before him, the latest attempt to legitimize their views on marriage is to try to turn the tables and say those fighting for equality — or even asking them about their views, for that matter — is considered bigotry. Talk about FAIL.
