Seriously? What Marriage Equality Opponents Are Saying

Written by scott on June 6th, 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.

Gays Are Like the KKK
If you want to make a hateful comparison to something, few things work better than throwing in a little Klu Jlux Klan into your statement. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, tried it out in reference to the Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a gay wedding. “This would be like going to a bakery owned by an African-American, and saying, ‘By the way, you have to bake a cake for a KKK induction ceremony, under penalty of law.’” Yes, because a gay couple celebrating their wedding day is exactly the same as a group founded on the principle that one class of people is subhuman and mush be denied equal rights. Hey, when you put it that way, who’s the one here who is hell-bent on denying rights to a class of people? It ain’t the gays…

Gay Rights Leads to Masturbation at Bus Stops
Right-wing nut David Ortiz thinks that allowing those pesky gays to have rights will lead to public masturbation: The moment you cave in to moral relativism, where it’s not about values, it’s about love, you open up a whole other Pandora’s box. Why can’t a man sexually relieve himself next to you on a bus stop, as long as he’s not groaning, as long as he cleans up after himself? ‘Hey, you’re getting in the way of his sexual freedom! Why are you so anti-sexual freedom?’” Yes, just like caving in to women’s rights led to Meg Ryan-style public orgasms in restaurants all over the country. Wait, that didn’t happen?

Gay Marriage Is Against My Catholic Beliefs, Topless Model Says
Speaking from a position of authority on morality, Danielle McMahon, topless model and UK Big Brother contestant, says: “I’ve got very black and white opinions on women today and same-sex marriage. I’m Catholic, it’s a very big part of my day to day life. I’ve got nothing against homosexuals, I just personally don’t believe in same-sex marriage. It’s just not right in our faith, it doesn’t really affect me because a same-sex marriage wouldn’t happen in a Catholic church.” Wow, I never knew the Catholic Church’s beliefs included “Thou shalt expose thy tits for money.”

Masculine Men Don’t Have Gay Sex
Peter LaBarbera is at it again, insisting he knows what kind of men have gay sex. “Tough guy homosexuality masculinity is not the real deal. Masculine men do not have sex with other men.” Is it just me, or does Peter LaBarbera seem to be quite the expert on gay sex? And how would he know?

    These people know nothing about the LGBT community at all. I seriously don’t get the point of trying to stop they’re rights or marriage because if they don’t support it or are gay, its none of they’re business anyway. I am extremely tired of people making false claim about the LGBT community.

    Any discussion that includes the KKK with Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council holds an unprecedented level of irony, and I’m surprised Perkins lets them use that…of course, he’s counting on the fact that most people don’t know the Genesis story of the FRC.

    Ms. Perkins started the FRC using the mailing list of famed KKK member and professional bigot David Duke. He actually purchased the list when managing a Republican senate campaign, and the campaign was fined $3,000 for filing false disclosure forms in a bid to hide the payment to Duke. He also often spoke at meetings of white supremacist groups, including the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist group that has described black people as a “retrograde species of humanity”

    I think we need to work harder to keep that origin story in front of the public. Unfortunately, no one on any of the news channels ever calls him out for that when he appears.
