In April, 2011, when GetEqual’s Michael Dixon presented NOM’s Maggie Gallagher with her “Anita Bryant Unparalleled Bigotry” Award, Gallagher said “There’s no point in conversing with someone who calls you a liar,” as though no anti-gay lie had ever passed her lips.
Back in her syndicated column dated October 25, 1996, though, Gallagher conveys her unshakable conviction that her theocratic contempt for gay human beings should be enshrined in civil law. She wrote that she is not willing to live in a society that gives anti-discrimination protections to gay people. Gallagher’s article is jam-packed with anti-gay lies.
She says, for example, that she opposes anti-discrimination protections for gay people out of “a sense of injustice that a small affluent group should be pressing for more economic protections.” Gallagher’s statement that all gay people are affluent is a shameless, propagandistic lie. So is her asinine claim that money is the only rationale — and/or motive — for anti-discrimination laws.
