Seriously? What Marriage Equality Opponents Are Saying

Written by scott on June 21st, 2014

Seriously?Here’s the the latest in our ongoing series of some of the crazy things the anti-gay marriage equality opponents are saying and doing around the world.

It’s Fun to Piss on the President
Taking their hatred of President Obama to a disgusting new low, The Faith and Freedom Coalition, which lobbies against same-sex marriage, put urinal cakes shaped like the President in bathrooms at its national conference. You can dislike the President. You can have a rational debate over his policies and whether they are good or bad for this country. But urinal cakes? Seriously?

You Can’t Close the Back Door
This one’s just hilarious. A marcher at NOM’s failed hate rally Thursday had a sign that said “Gay sex leads to adult diapers.” He explains: “They’re not born with it, you know. If anybody opens the back door unnaturally from outside, you end up having open-door syndrome. You can’t close the door. Anal sex harms [gays]. It reduces their life by, on average, 25 years–anal or oral sex. Uh, it also has an impact–a strong impact [on women]. I’m not certain the exact statistics there.” OMG, he’s such an adorable little homophobe!

Gay Mariage Makes Straights Divorce Which Kills the Economy
Noted economist Rick Santorum (Ha!) makes the case against letting the gays marry. “The family is the foundation of society, and marriage is the glue that holds the family together. When we continue to see a decline in marriage, and the redefinition of marriage, you get less marriage… You get families that aren’t as strong, and as a result, society generally – the economy – suffers. Every family is an economic unit, and when the family breaks apart, because we are saying marriage is not anything significant. When we have less of that in America, then society struggles and suffers economically.” Except, haven’t we seen the biggest divorce rates in states that don’t allow marriage equality?

Calling The Opposing Team Faggots is All in Good Fun
After taking flack for his team’s fans using an anti-gay slur against an opposing team, Mexico’s soccer coach says it’s just not that big a deal. “We’re with our fans. It’s something they do to pressure the opposing goalkeeper.” Sohat are you all getting so bent out of shape for? They don’t really mean it. Sigh.

This is a Bully Movement
The Advocate has gathered the nine strangest rants from NOM’s failed hate march Thursday. My favorite? Rev. William Owens on the marriage equality movement. “This is no civil rights movement. This is a bully movement. This is about a lot of bullies intimidating. We had the real civil rights movement. … I didn’t march one yard, one foot, for the same sex to get married.” I have some news for you, Reverend Owens – many gays and lesbians marched in your civil rights movement to get equal rights for you. And many African Americans are marching in our movement today.

Sixty Six Thousand Moms Against the Fosters
The so-called One Million Moms (they’re only off by about 93.4%) is up in arms again, this time against the TV show The Fosters. “Families should avoid the network completely; otherwise, they run the risk of viewing a commercial for this offensive program. ABC Family’s show “The Fosters” is about two women raising foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together.” Oh, the horror that one should even, accidentally, watch a commercial for the series. How would you ever remove the stain on your soul?

Ten Thousand Marched for Traditional Marriage… Oops, Make That 2,000
NOM initially tried to claim that 10,000 people attended their hate march Thursday. “NOM organized the march to bring people together,” Christian weekly World reported. “Last year, roughly 7,000 attended. This year, organizers estimated as many as 10,000 joined the procession.” Most other estimates came in at closer to 2,000, and NOM’s Brian Brown has since amended that number: “What a day it was! Several thousand Americans — people from across the spectrum of America — Men and Women, African Americans and Latinos, Orthodox Jews, Evangelicals and Catholics, young and old — stood together in defense of marriage between one man and one woman.” Counting, apparently, is not a traditional value.
