Seriously?

Written by scott on July 2nd, 2013

Seriously?These folks are going nuts this week as their attempts to turn back the marriage equality tide now rushing across the country are defeated one by one.

First off, Joe.My.God has a YouTube video of a guy who claims the Anti-Christ controls the Supreme Court (and maybe wrote Gangnam Style?):

So says the Third Eagle of Batshittery. Also, the Anti-Christ wrote Gangnam Style and Call Me Maybe.

Sertiously? regular Matt Barber is ready to go to prison to defend his views that gays are icky. Joe.My.God reports:

“In my 35 years as a Christian, I never seriously believed we might end up in prison for our faith – except, perhaps, for something like a pro-life demonstration. This is the first time it seriously occurs to me that the trajectory of the nation is such that it is possible in five to 10 years. Oddly, this thought does not discourage or scare me; in fact, it’s almost a joyful thought that we might have the privilege to suffer for our faith. Rejoice greatly when men revile and persecute you for my name’s sake, for your reward is great in Heaven.”

Apparently, it’s all just a big set-up for his grand entry into Heaven.

Mike Huckabee flips out – and wants to let a bunch of people OUT of prison in response to the rulings. Think Progress reports:

“If we’re determined to change the definition of marriage to accommodate how people feel and what they wish to do because of their mutual consent, then we should immediately release those incarcerated for practicing polygamy or bigamy,” Huckabee said. “And, frankly, let’s make all consensual adult behaviors legal, whether prostitution, assisted suicide, or even drinking 16 ounce sodas in New York City.” Huckabee said he was on the “right side of history,” arguing that gay marriage is “newer than Google or the iPod … and the first nation to even codify it into law didn’t do so until the year 2000.” He also said that the issue “is not equality, but sameness.”

Over at Maddow Blog, they note the far right has suddenly discovered a love for Russia (those godless commies, remember?):

All of a sudden, conservative activists who’ve generally had no use for Russia — indeed, the right has traditionally used Russia as a point of comparison that Americans must reject — have rediscovered how much they like the country after all. The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute said it “admires” Russia’s latest anti-gay moves; Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality lauded Russia for rejecting “America’s reckless and decadent promotion of gender confusion”; and the Illinois-based World Congress of Families has scheduled its 2014 conference for the Kremlin.

And finally, Bryan Fischer at the AFA is back again, playing the Child Abuse card in response to the New Yorker’s cute Bert and Ernie marriage equality cover. Pink News reports:

A US radio host has weighed in on the media attention surrounding the Supreme Court ruling on DOMA last week, to say that the New Yorker magazine “promoted child abuse”, by featuring Sesame Street characters embracing at the news on its cover… Bryan Fischer, a Christian radio host, made the comments whilst speaking on his Focal Point programme, saying the pair were engaged in a “homosexual clinch”. “I don’t know which is which”, he said, continuing: “This is grossly irresponsible for The New Yorker to promote this, they really are promoting child endangerment and they are promoting child abuse.”

One of these days, I’m gonna make up a deck of the cards these guys always play: the Slippery Slope card, the It’s All About the Childdren and Child Abuse cards, the It’s a Choice card, and all the rest of these canards.
