Christianist hate-group NOM, has lost their battle to keep their corporate donors a secret in Minnesota. The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ruled that groups advocating either for or against a proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage must reveal their corporate donors.
The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ruled today that corporate donations to groups advocating for or against a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage must be disclosed. The Minnesota Family Council (MFC) and the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) argued that supporters of marriage equality would commit violence against their donors if they were made public. On Thursday, the board disagreed.
In state after state, from Washington to Maine, NOM’s efforts to keep their donors hidden have failed. Again and again NOM has tried to play the victim card claiming that their the ones being discriminated against.
John Aravosis founder of AmericaBlog and AmericaBlogGay appeared on CNN where he took on ultra-conservative radio talk show host, syndicated columnist, and whackadoodle Dennis Prager on the subject of gay marriage.
Nutjob Prager is probably most well for his idiocy of early in 2009 when he accused Congressman Keith Ellison, a Muslim, of taking the oath of office in a photo-op reenactment of the actual oath with the Islamic Quran. Prager stated that America was “imperiled” by Ellison taking the oath on the Quran in substitution of the Bible as the Bible, “the moral basis of American civilization” in Prager’s view, had never before been replaced by another religious work.
Joe Solmonese and Fres Sainz tale note. THIS IS THE WAY TO DO IT. Debate and discredit.
Awesome work by Aravosis, and especially the mention about Perkins and the FRC being a hate group that’s continually allowed to be on television.
Cain is also a favorite of Chris R. Barron and the GOProud crowd. Coincidence? Stupidity? BOTH?
Cain, an African American businessman and founder of Godfathers Pizza is a staunch opponent of gay marriage and believes that we Americans need to protect the sanctity of marriage as defined between one man and one woman. He does not support civil unions and would reinstate ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ which prohibits homosexuals from serving openly in the military.
Can we just start calling GOProud “honorary ex-gays?”
Chris Barron and his crew may still suck dick, but the resemblance ends there to being gay.
American Family Association Hate Group’s Buster and Dave take time off from from sewing their white sheets together to discuss President Obama’s LGBT Pride Month proclamation and how it will lead to America going back to wanton pagan sex!
The crazy ass, gay hating christomainiacs of of the Florida Family Association, a right wing, anti-gay hate group so small that it doesn’t even have a Wiki page (pfft, armatures) spent $7,000.00 to fly a banner to”warn” the people of Orlando about today’s annual Gay Day at Disney World
“Florida Family Association wants to warn these families about this offensive event before they arrive at the Magic Kingdom on Saturday. This airplane banner is our best effort to accomplish that goal…Florida Family Association has asked Disney officials to require Gay Day to be held after hours, like Grad Night or Night of Joy, to avoid offending unsuspecting families who traveled thousands of miles expecting a normal day.”
The banner, like its current boycott of MTV’s Degrassi: The Next Generation for featuring a transgender character and its boycott of the Doubletree by Hilton, the official hotel for Gay Day because The FFA believes they are “sanctioning the celebration of the homosexual, lesbian and transgender lifestyles.” has been a BIG OLD BUST.
The nationally recognized hate group the American Family Association is really shoveling on the shit when it comes to Harvey Milk Day this year.
“Though the Golden State’s “Harvey Milk Day” falls on a Sunday this year, pro-family activists are still concerned about the curriculum and activities that will involve children. Teachers and school officials may commemorate the late San Francisco activist in public school classrooms, assemblies or announcements, without the consent of parents…. Children will be required to participate in exercises that honor Milk, which *could* include mock homosexual “weddings” and cross-dressing contests, as well as writing or reading activities.”
What a bunch of maniacs. But you know whats even sadder and scarier is that these lunatics actually have followers that believe their bullshit.
Perhaps also the activities for Harvey Milk Day *could* also include human sacrifices of homophobic, Christomaniac, self-important assholes as well. Now that would make for a festive holiday!
The American Family Association who has been decrying it’s catagorization as being a “hate group” by the Southern Law Poverty Center all year long because of it’s anti-gay hate and propaganda seems to be earning it’s hate groups stripes by now treading into the waters of racism.
“Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of people who rut like rabbits.”
“People who rut like rabbits.” Nice eh?
AFA recently had Newt Gingrich pump hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations into it and has hosted Presidential anti-christ Mike Huckabee in recent months. It is hard to believe that it was the republicans or Lincoln’s time – roughly 140 years ago, that originally believed in Freedom – Emancipation – and the giving of all “people” the right to property, marriage, self direction.
There is no more Republican party. Its dead and has been for a very long time. And people who think that this Republican party has ANY ties or resemblence to old one of the 1800’s should owe up to that fact that it doesn’t and never will again and move on.
Igor Volsky of the Wonk Room confronted Newt Gingrich today about hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations he has made to the American Family Association, which has been designated a hate group like the KKK by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
When Volsky pressed Gingrich about why he would fund a group that wants the criminalization of homosexuals and the use of reparative therapy as a “gay cure”, Gingrich refused to answer, but continued on by saying that the AFA is not a hate group:
“You’ve just made a whole series of assertions that I’m not going to automatically accept your description of an organization that has a million and five hundred thousand members or more…The only thing I’ve done, which I was perfectly happy to defend, is I did help raise resources for a campaign to defeat three judges in Iowa. […] You bring a series of allegations that I can’t check about a group that is largely a Christian based membership group, that is fairly widespread in its membership and I suspect most of those people do not in any way think of themselves as a hate group even if that’s how you would characterize them.”
Gingrich. I am sure that many Nazi’s didn’t think of themselves as evil either. But I’m sure that you can relate to that.
Oh, and by the way. The KKK was and is ALSO largely a Christian-based organization you twice-divorced/thrice married, cheating, lying, no-neck bobblehead.
Does he (Trump) believe the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is constitutional? Does he believe President Obama violated his oath of office by refusing to defend this law in court? Does he support a federal marriage amendment that would define marriage as a one-man, one-woman institution and prohibit marriage counterfeits like civil unions and domestic partnerships? Would he reverse President Obama’s decision to grant certain spousal benefits to the sexual partners of homosexuals, contrary to DOMA? Would he support reinstatement of the ban on open homosexual service in the military? Would he veto the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) if it came to his desk? Would he sign a repeal of the Hate Crimes act, which will criminalize speech that is critical of homosexual behavior?
Blah, blah, blah, blah, fucking blah.
Yes Bryan. The Donald is a homophobic douche and a hater right up there with you. But of course you and your demonic brood that try to disguise themselves as “Christians” won’t be happy till you find the anti-gay presidential hopeful who is the offspring of Anita Bryant and Hitler.
Last Friday I posted that the Department of Justice announced yesterday that they were going to be appealing the two rulings, in Gill v. Office of Personnel Management and Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. Department of Health and Human Services and defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Now Ginger haired “Princess Tiny Meat” Tony Perkins and his officially recognized hate group The Family Research Council is in a tizzy because they don’t think that the DOJ is doing enough to be anti-gay and bigoted in thier defense of the unconstitutional law that is called the Defense Of Marriage Act.
“Apparently, the administration is so fixated on making the homosexual community happy that it’s not even working to uphold what’s best for kids. In this instance, the Justice Department seems to imply that by doing their job they’re somehow doing America a favor. Hardly! Defending the law is DOJ’s whole reason for existence. So while the President may have strong feelings on the matter, they by no means excuse him or his administration from doing its duty. Since the President is failing to live up to the responsibilities his elected office holds, it is within Congress’ explicit right to intervene to defend the laws they have passed. This current appeal is already shoddy substitute for the compelling argument that the statute–and American families–deserve.” – Tony Perkins via Press Release
Perhaps the Department of Justice isn’t doing it’s job properly enough and we all should all start pushing it to do so. It can start by investigating the FRC, AFA, IFI, NOM and all those other alphabetic anti-gay hate groups for violations of the RICO Act.
