Straight Love is Better, Wife Beater Says
Gotta love this one – a Scottish MP who opined on the superiority of straight love just resigned over allegations that he beat his wife. Pink News reports:
MSP Bill Walker, who is a vocal opponent to gay equality, has resigned from Scottish Parliament after being convicted of a series of domestic abuse offences against his three ex-wives. More than half of Scotland’s 129 MSPs had backed a motion calling for him to go. The independent MSP for Dunfermline said a “media onslaught” had made it impossible for him to continue. In August, Bill Walker was found guilty of 23 charges of assault, and one breach of the peace at several addresses in Edinburgh, Stirling, Midlothian and Alloa. The incidents took place between 1967 and 1995.
The jokes practically write themselves.
Bring Out the Big Guns Against Gay Marriage
NOM wants New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez to use whatever means necessary to battle marriage equality. On Top Magazine reports:
“I urge you, as the governor, with the power of the executive branch, to intervene and stop the lawlessness that has broken out in Dona Ana County. Use whatever means necessary to restore the rule of law and the credibility of the government in that county,” the email states. “Recognizing and defending traditional marriage recognizes and defends the right of the future generations to receive the love and care of a mom and a dad. Future New Mexico kids are counting on us to hand on to them this right intact.”
Do they want her to call out the National Guard?
It’s An Australian Discrimination Miracle
Australian Pastor Matt Prater, the minister who had his ass handed to him by former Prime Minister Paul Rudd when he asked a question about marriage equality feels vindicated. Joe.My.God reports:
“On national television on Monday 2 September, I asked a question of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd about his sudden change to support homosexual marriage. Mr. Rudd, who claims to be a Christian, tried to dismiss the words of Jesus in Matthew 19:5 supporting man-woman marriage in the Bible. The YouTube clip of the 4-min incident went viral, as did an article in Australia’s national newspaper, The Australian, titled ‘Judas Kiss’. Tony Abbott, said during the Australian Christian Lobby webcast before the election, ‘I believe marriage is between a man and a woman.’ Seven days later God heard our prayers and your prayer and there was a change of government. A miracle has occurred. A victory has been won, but the battle is far from over. We thank you for your continuing prayers.”
Um, yes, the conservatives won an election. But more than 60% of Australians want marriage equality, so how exactly was this a miracle for your cause?
Jews Invented “Gay” to Oppress White People
So many things wrong with this one:
Last week, progressive radio host David Pakman interviewed white separatist Craig Cobb in an attempt to understand his beyond-bizarre belief system. Among many of Cobb’s ramblings during the interview is his assertion that the term “gay” was devised by Jews as a way to oppress white people.
Um, many Jews are white. Um, gays invented “gay”. Maybe they were Jewish gays? Um…
