The American Decency Association (ever heard of them before?) compares June 26th to Pearl Harbor, and rolls out the “A” word. Joe.My.God reports:
“As we look back on history there are dates which we now see were crossroads, turning points for nations and cultures. July 4, 1776; June 6, 1944. December 7, 1941; January 22, 1973. Battles fought, decisions made – some establishing goodness and justice, others are dates that ‘will live in infamy.’ God will not bless a nation that puts a stamp of approval upon that which he calls an abomination.”
Ooohhh.. haven’t been called that word in awhile…
Over at the AFA, Bryan Fischer REALLY doesn’t like the New Yorker cover showing Bert and Ernie as a gay couple. Joe.My.God reports:
The tony, elitist New Yorker magazine, read by those who fancy themselves our moral and intellectual superiors, is in effect promoting child endangerment on the cover of its latest issue, and shamelessly using Bert and Ernie to do it. A staggering 23% of adult children of lesbians reported having been sexually molested – unwanted sexual touching or worse – than children raised by a mom and a dad.
Joe notes that Fischer continues to use the widely discredited Regenerus study to push his bullshit.
Rick Santorum, he who you dare not googleth, sees the end of marriage in the Court’s decisions this week. On Top Magazine reports:
“If the court does what it seems obvious they are doing. When they say that you can’t be opposed to the redefinition of marriage unless you’re a hater or bigot, then it seems pretty obvious to me that when another case comes up that they’re going to establish some sort of constitutional right or find that marriage is unconstitutional in its current form. That to me will put the death knell in it.”
Tell that to all the happy couples currently entering into the institution of marriage in California. It’s the marriage equivalent of “there goes the neighborhood” when people of color move in.
Down in Virginia, Ken “the coach” Cuccinelli wants to bring back the good old days – and the sodomy laws that went with them. Queerty reports:
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who is also the GOP’s gubernatorial candidate, is upset with that Supreme Court ruling and wants to overturn it. No, not DOMA. Sodomy laws. Yes, Cuccinelli is upset about the decade-old ruling that made sodomy laws unconstitutional and has filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court to let Virginia bring the law back.
Yeah, good luck with that.
Over in Kansas, Tim Huelskamp, the GOP representative who is trying to build momentum to pass a new Defense of Marriage Act, thinks the Justices accosted Jesus. Towleroad.com reports:
Huelskamp accused the justices of trying to “rewrite the Constitution” and of attacking Jesus Christ himself. “The idea that Jesus Christ himself was degrading and demeaning is what they’ve come down to,” he said. The congressman also added that the left is bent on “ramming their views down the throats of Americans.”
Of course, Huelskamp’s new DOMA legislation is not gaining much traction, as Dot429 reports:
Topeka Councilman Chad Manspeaker talked about that Huelskamp bill will hurt Kansas’ reputation. “I make no assumptions about how Kansans feel about LGBT rights,” Topeka Councilman Chad Manspeaker (D) said. “In 2005, a constitutional amendment passed with 70 percent of the vote. Huelskamp is symbolic of that mentality, but that was eight years ago. Times are changing. Huelskamp is becoming a national joke. Kansas needs less national jokes and more leadership.”
And finally, over in California, Protect Marriage, the group that passed Prop 8, is outraged, OUTRAGED, I tell you, that the Ninth Circuit didn’t wait the full 25 days for a potential rehearing before lifting the stay on sae sex weddings. Joe.My.God reports:
“We just received word that the Ninth Circuit, without waiting for the Supreme Court’s decision to become final and depriving us of our right to ask for reconsideration, has rushed forward to order same-sex marriage licenses. This outrageous act of judicial tyranny tops off a chronic pattern of lawlessness, throughout this case, by judges and politicians hell-bent on thwarting the vote of the people to redefine marriage by any means, even outright corruption.”
Sorry, guys – no one’s listening to you anymore.
