AFA’s Bryan Fischer DEMANDS Mitt Romney Respond Over Log Cabin Republicans Endorsement

Morons, morons everywhere……

AFA hatemonger and moron Bryan J Fischer, is demanding that GOP Presidential Mormon moron Mitt Romney explain why the HomoCON morons, The Log Cabin Republicans endorsed him and is hoping that it has nothing to do with LGBT equality in any way shape or form.

Ben Adler of the Nation called me at quitting time today. Said he had been given assurances by Log Cabin Republicans that Romney’s camp has privately promised them he will support ENDA after he’s elected. ENDA will be the official end of religious liberty in America. Will trample on the 1st Amendment rights of every Christian businessmen in the country.  No freedom of religion, conscience or association. Will do to every Christian business what ObamaCare has done to Catholic hospitals. Would be wrong and politically disastrous for Romney to support. What we need is a flat emphatic, unambiguous denial from Romney himself. Please clarify for us all, Governor.  Bottom line: we need a clear, unambiguous, no loophole denial from Gov. Romney that he will support ENDA as president.” 

Well of course Fischer has no need to worry Buzzfeed  spoke to Log Cabin head HomoCON douchebag  R. Clarke Cooper, who is denied all claims that his group agreed to endorse Mitt Romney in return for a promise to support the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)  (SPOILER: They did it because they are bootlicking, asskissing, greedy Auntie Tom Kapo bastard who don’t give a shit about the gay community and equality and wanted to curry favor from the GOP party which hates them.)

Cooper acknowledged that he “discussed legislative vehicles and executive actions with Romney regarding workplace non-discrimination, including ENDA.” But he insisted the endorsement did not come in response to a Romney campaign pledge to sign ENDA — noting, “I did not say Romney would sign the current form of ENDA.” He added that Log Cabin is “confident we could work with a President Romney and his administration to achieve desirable tangible outcomes on workplace nondiscrimination.” ENDA is legislation that has been introduced in this and several recent sessions of Congress aimed at specifically outlawing workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

So essentially what Cooper is saying is that they endorsed Romney, a candidate who doesn’t support gay rights in any way, shape or form, because of other factors not associated with gay rights. And they were begging for crumbs to justify the endorsement and came back empty-handed and endorsed him anyway.

In a nutshell Cooper and the LCR could have withheld the endorsement for Romney like they previously did Bush.  They weighed their options and made a calculated decision n to curry favor from the GOP knowing full well that they would not suffer any ramifications from the LGBT Washington Insiders and Organizations other than some bitchy blog posts. (Thats me!)

Considering that Romney and Ryan have kowtowed to the extreme religious right in this election more than Bush ever did, what LCR did yesterday with their endorsement of Romney while not wholly unexpected should be viewed as a slap in the face to the LGBT community and our fight for equality as a whole. And if nothing else LGBT organizations should turn their backs on them and treat them the same as GOProud.

Barack Obama Says That DADT "Lawsuits Are Disruptive" – *cough* LOSER "cough*

“I’ve been a strong believer in the notion that if somebody is going to serve in the military, in uniform, putting their lives on the line for our security, they should not be prevented from doing so because of their sexual orientation. … The overwhelming majority of Americans feel the same way. It’s the right thing to do. As commander-in-chief, I’ve said that making this change needs to be done in an orderly fashion, and I’ve worked with the Pentagon, Sec. Gates, Adm. Mullen, to make sure that we are looking at this in a systematic way that maintains good order and discipline, but that we need to change this policy. … Keep in mind, we’ve got a bunch of court cases that are out there as well, and something that would be very disruptive to good order and disclipline and unit cohesion is if we’ve got this issue bouncing around in the courts as it already has over the last several weeks, where the Pentagon and the chain of command doesn’t know at any given time what rules they’re working under. We need to provide certainty. … This should not be a partisan issue.”

Obama, spoke to  to reporters after today’s live press conference and even though the Dem’s suffered a massacre he’s not going to let that stop his stubborn, pigheaded, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell tune.  Obviously math is not Obama’s strong suit getting two to five Republican votes in the Senate (which he asked Log Cabin Republicans to do) is less helpful now that there are only 50-52 Democrats. We need 10-12 Republicans.

Good fucking luck with that.  And thank you for promoting institutionalized homophobia they way that you have been by dealing with DADT like this.
