Professional hater Maggie Gallagher – Srivastav the founder and “former head” of the National Organization for Marriage, is ending her propaganda and lie filled syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate after 17 years.
“More than 17 years ago, I set out to explain how a Yale-educated young woman from a secular Oregon family could become a social conservative:
Every life is precious. It is better to care for your children than to kill them. Divorce hurts children; it also breaks apart life’s most precious commitment — a family.
Men and women are different. A society that pretends otherwise is not going to raise boys to be loving, reliable family men. Marriage is about settling for less but raising up an ideal much bigger and more important even than the most urgent whispered promises of romantic love.
Sex makes babies. Society needs babies. Babies need their mother and their father. Men and women need each other. We all need a strong marriage culture, whether we choose to marry or not.
If it is true that sex makes babies, then that is clearly the most important thing about sex, the thing around which a decent person or society will organize sexual values, behavior and norms.
If they saw clearly. If they were only told the truth. For of all the ways adult society can abandon the young, one of the worst is to ignore the key adult task of creating and sustaining a larger meaning for sex and sexual desire for young people.”
Interesting that Mrs Gallagher – Srivastav references being Yale-educated and then equates abortion to killing children in nearly the same sentence but not the fact that she got knocked up at Yale and had a child out of wedlock. Obviously her worldview is still dominated by the fact a boy got her pregnant in college and then wanted nothing to do with her. And to this day she blames everything society that doesn’t conform to her vision of sex and a family structure for it.
But never fear just because Moo-gie is dropping her syndicated column doesn’t mean shes going to stop the hate. Gallagher plans to continue writing her anti-gay propaganda on her own personal hate-site, MaggieGallagher.com

Bush administration promote the President’s Healthy Marriage Initiative .During this time, Gallagher testified before Congress in favor of “healthy marriage” programs, but never disclosed the payments.When asked about that situation, she replied “Did I violate journalistic ethics by not disclosing it? I don’t know. You tell me. …frankly, it never occurred to me”.
Also Gallagher received an additional $20,000 from the Bush administration for writing a report, titled “Can Government Strengthen Marriage?”
