Why Do You Always Gotta Talk About the Gay?
The anti gay Christian conservative Linda Harvey is sick, just sick of the gays proclaiming their gayness: “I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s going to be a big gathering of homosexuals in the city of Cleveland in August for what is called the Gay Games,” Harvey told listeners. “Yes I know it seems that these folks can’t stop proclaiming in public the sinful behavior they’ve told us for years they wanted to keep private.” Which makes you wonder, doesn’t she ever get sick of proclaiming her bigotry? I guess not.
That Whole Fasting Thing is Really More of a Diet
Turns out that much-publicized “fast” in Virginia to block marriage equality there is more of a, well, diet. Wonkette reports. The Family Foundation explains: “…the word “fast” does not translate to “hunger strike.” Sometimes, Christians do indeed fast completely — without food — for a brief period of time, like 24 hours, as an act of humility in seeking a deeper relationship with God. More often, fast means giving up something like a food item — let’s say our addiction to diet coke for example — for a longer period of time.” Now that’s dedication to the cause. I’m sure God’s all like “wow, you gave up your diet Coke – I can really get behind this whole thing now.”
Straight People Are Sad
UKIP candidate Robert Bilcliff in Staffordshire, England is sad about marriage equality, tweeting on the first day of same sex weddings: “Sad day for all us straight people.” Why, because you no longer had exclusive access to the rights and responsibilities of married? Because you no longer felt that special thrill that comes with lording it over others? I know many, many straight folks who are absolutely thrilled when marriage equality comes to another state or country. So get over it.
