While Dolce and Gabbana continue to be attacked as “hypocrites”, what their critics have failed to do is prove them wrong. Every child is born to and deserves to be raised by a committed, married father and mother, and same-sex marriage will always strip away at least one essential piece of the family.
Bravo to Dolce and Gabbana for daring to speak the truth; they are as bold in their speech as they are in their designs, and deserve to be applauded. While others will continue to vent their disagreement, the billionaire pair are wonderful advocates for the true definitions of marriage and family.
I, for one, cannot wait to see Maggie Gallagher in her fabulous new tent frock.
Both Maggie Gallagher – Srivastav and Brian Brown of the anti-gay hate group The National Organization for Marriage have waddled away from the all-you- can eat buffet just long enough to take advantage of the latest GOP feeding frenzy to play victim and join in the attack of the IRS citing the publication of its 2008 990-B tax form on March 30, 2012 by the Human Rights Campaign,
“The IRS is claiming — and I think it is plausible — that low-level employees found a clever way to use their low-level job to influence (they hoped) a U.S. election. Have they been identified and fired? Because otherwise this becomes no longer a low-level problem. (You may recall that a low-level employee also released NOM’s private tax-return information to a guy claiming to be a NOM employee, who then posted it on the Internet.)”
“There is little question that one or more employees at the IRS stole our confidential tax return and leaked it to our political enemies, in violation of federal law,” said Brian Brown, NOM’s president. “The only questions are who did it, and whether there was any knowledge or coordination between people in the White House, the Obama reelection campaign and the Human Rights Campaign. We and the American people deserve answers.”
Of course NOM wasted no time issuing a beg for money to investigate the evil IRS (and help pay Brian Brown’s half a million dollar salary, of course.)
“Dear Marriage Supporter, Of all the scandals plaguing the Obama administration this week, the revelation that the Internal Revenue Service targeted Tea Party and conservative groups for harassment during the last Presidential election is perhaps the most shocking. But it pales in comparison to what we have been attempting to expose for over a year: that the IRS is also guilty of leaking our confidential tax return to our opponents at the Human Rights Campaign! Now that the eyes of the nation are fixed on this exploding IRS scandal, this is our opportunity to expose the truth! That’s why I’m asking you to make an immediate gift of $35, $50 or $100 to help us call on Congress to investigate the IRS.”
The National Organization For Marriage’s own Maggie Gallagher – Srivastav, appeared on Andrew Sullivan’s Beast TV(which is a perfect name of a video chanell for her to appear upon) and explained why she chose fighting same sex marriage as a career and doesn’t take on issues like divorce, adultery and having children out of wedlock (her personal specialty)
“Starbucks has voluntarily decided — as a corporation — to associate its brand with a major political issue, the CEO just confirmed. I was in the room. I heard him. Customers across the world have a right to know that contrary to the promises made by the corporation in the Middle East and elsewhere, Starbucks does subsidize political causes. Drinking a cup of Starbucks coffee, sadly, means supporting gay marriage. Speak out, and stop being invisible to powerful men like Schultz. The business of America may or may not be business, but the business of corporations is to make an honest profit by serving all their customers well, both those who favor and those who oppose gay marriage.” – Maggie Gallagher – Real Clear Politics.
Moo moo…. Blah blah…..
Considering that Maggie’s and the National Organization for Marriage scam operation is largely a Roman Catholic and Mormon front operation – and that Mormons don’t even drink coffee, a good chunk of her little base of supporters wouldn’t be at Starbucks anyway and their other few followers have no fucking idea what a Starbucks Venti MochaFrappuccino let alone be willing to spend 5 bucks on it anyway. Its not really a great loss for Starbucks.
PLEASE be sure to go sign the “Thank You Starbucks” card for standing up for same sex marriage As of now they have ten times the number of signatures that have signed NOM’s boycott pledge. Go sign it.
“What moved me most are the words Rick Santorum used to ‘connect the dots’—to explain why support for marriage, for life, and for an economy that provide the dignity of jobs to average Americans are not three separate things. They are bound together by principles—by American principles…
The left, which thought it had buried Santorum years ago, is going after him with a hatred unmatched. They hate him with that special ire reserved for a man’s virtues, not his vices.
They will go after him not just to defeat Rick Santorum, but to smear his good name, to associate it with their own muck, to take a decent and honorable man and try literally to make his name mean mud. They will not succeed.
The American people, I promise you, are not going to reject a man they would otherwise support because he believes in traditional Christian views of sex and marriage. Especially when he believes—not just with his words, and not just with his vote, but with every action of his soul and his life—that a man’s job is to support his children, born and unborn, to commit a loving and faithful marriage to one woman, and to devote himself to being a good dad.
That’s Rick Santorum.”
So says profesional bigot and mother of a bastard child Maggie Gallagher – Srivastav between feeding times at the trough
The Hateful Hostess, Maggie Gallagher Srivastav gives tips and advice to homophobes, bigots and haters on “how to stand thier ground over the mashed potatoes and gravy” when arguing about same sex marriage at the Thanksgiving table.
And believe me. If ANYONE knows how to stand her ground over the mashed potatoes and gravy its Moooooo-gie Gallagher!
In an email exchange with Advocate.com. The National Organiztion For Marriage’s Maggie Gallagher – Srivastav (sans Hindu husband of course. It was in public after all) explains why she attended the Broadway premiere of 8, Dustin Lance Black’s staged reading of the federal Proposition 8 case based on transcripts of the 2010 trial in California.
Gallagher who said that she “wanted to see the play and I didn’t think it was likely to make it to Broadway again,” was at a loss at why she was included in the play at all. “I wasn’t part of the trial, so it’s curious the playwright felt the need to write me in.”
Gallagher even had the nerve to critque Dustin Lance Blacks work on the play by saying “It’s pretty hard to turn a transcript of a trial into exciting theater. “It was pretty ideological. Perhaps not unexpectedly.”
But according to at least one source at the play Gallagher tried to barge her way backstage after play but was stopped by Broadway Impact cofounder Gavin Creel, who “politely said she couldn’t go on stage.”
There is stil no news weather the home brought snacks Maggie grazed laoudly upon during the play was Moosie Mic or Purina Cow Chow.
Last night on Broardway a staged reading play based on last year’s federal court fight over California’s gay marriage ban using the trial transcript, firsthand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families made its Broadway debut on Monday night with an all-star cast.
Written by Dustin Lance Black and performed to benefit the American Foundation for Equal Rights. The cast included: Morgan Freeman, Ellen Barkin, Anthony Edwards, Bradley Whitford, John Lithgow, Cheyenne Jackson, Campbell Brown, Christine Lahti, Rob Reiner and Larry Kramer, among others.
But according to Towleroad not all the plays characters were on stage. Maggie Gallagher of NOM had the nerve to go to the play, where she sat in the balcony (And the cow had the nerve to bring a bag of her own munchies!) and then sucked up the limelight after the performance.
Yet the real Gallagher sat up in the balcony apparently having bought a ticket to the benefit. She sat and watched as the drama of the trial played out (she had seen it before, she had participated in it). So what could Gallagher have hoped to glean from her perch in the balcony? Perhaps she was finally enlightened last night, that her mission is flawed and hateful, that it is futile, that what she has been working for for years destroys families, hurts children, and is ultimately un-American?
I fear that she did not. I fear that what was behind her motivation to sit there and watch her words come out of Houdyshell’s mouth was some sort of ego stroke, a pat on the back, a motivational fuel for her anti-gay engine.
Afterward, she certainly seemed to enjoy the attention she was getting just outside the theatre, even though much of it was negative.
And she obviously knew she was coming for a show. My friends Phil and Ronald sat directly in front of her. You can see Ronald in the top photo. They had a hard time listening to the show because along with her nerve, Ms. Gallagher brought a large plastic bag of loud food, which she rustled and munched throughout the production (she’s still got it on the way out). Perhaps she thought it was a popcorn flick she was going to. In any case, someone should have told her that it’s rude, perhaps even against the rules, to eat in the theatre. But we already know what Gallagher and her organization think of rules.
What an evil megalomaniac cow. No shame, no soul, and no class.
Another opportunity missed to for me and my fruit pie to make statement as it hits her fat ugly face. Although I might have to switch to shaving cream on a plate. She’s just eat the pie.
Moo-gie Gallagher- Srivastav took to the pages of uber conservative Human Events magazine, dubbed one of America’s Top 10 Conservative Magazines (which SURPRSE was former Ronald “May he be rotting in hell” Reagan’s “favorite reading for years,”) to explain how The National Organization For Marriage is using minorities to stop gay right.
“The majority of Democrats may not break with their party over an issue like gay marriage, but the most important voters are voters newly in motion, particularly core constituents willing to break party lines over a new issue. In NY-9, Orthodox Jews (and possibly Hispanics) played that role, and they broke party lines to protest Democrats’ support for gay marriage. In North Carolina, look for a newly resurgent black church, almost all Democrats, to lead the battle for protecting our marriage tradition against those who dub it hateful, bigoted and discriminatory.” –
Now I guess we get to add race-baiting bigot to her long and insidious resume.
“The new public norms at the heart of ‘marriage equality’ attempt to deface the Bible by ripping out Genesis and remaking the American tradition, so that public norms are incompatible with orthodox Judeo-Christian beliefs. For the first time in American history, mainstream, orthodox Judeo-Christian beliefs will render an American a second-class citizen, subject to a variety of bars and exclusions government imposes to reduce the reach of ‘anti-equality’ bigotry. It’s hard to see what conservatives will have left to conserve if we accept this, especially at the most fundamental level (which is the philosophical level, the level on which America is founded and sustained, for we are a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated therefore to propositions). – NOM’s Bovine Hate group leader Maggie Gallagher, writing for Public Discourse. (Which doesn’t have a comment section so there really is NO public discourse)
“”…for we are a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated therefore to propositions…” Like maybe for instance “All men are created equal” although according to Moo-gie here, some are more equal than others, namely her hateful sects of evil christofacist who have the nerve to complain and spin this into them (somehow) being downgraded to a “second-class citizen”, to create an equal playing field. Instead of what it truly is, us fighting for what should be our God given rights under the Constitution to be accepted as “first-class citizens”
