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.
Gay Marriage Supporters Are Like ISIS
Because they will do anything, including beheadings, to get their special rights, say Christian radio hosts Vic Eliason and Mat Staver:
Reacting to a recent court ruling in favour of equal marriage, Staver said: “What we’re seeing is the complete abolition of marriage between a man and a woman. Eliason added: “People see something they want, they steal it or they kill somebody or behead them. “Some of this stuff now that’s going on, the beheading, which has become a very sacred thing to the Islamics to behead somebody because that is a special right that is deserved by the infidels.” Staver continued: “Yeah, that’s exactly right. I think what we’re seeing today is a meltdown of morality.
Yes, following democratic principles to secure equal rights by acting through the legislatures, the judges, and the ballot to secure equal rights is just like beheading someone to draw the West into a war. That these so-called “Christians” would even thin to invoke the terrible acts of ISIS in their own political service is despicable and disgusting.
Our Ice Cream is for Straight People
A New York City gelateria is hoping straight people will boost ice cream sales:
Sensing an acute lack of heteronormative ice cream parlors in the West Village, one Italian restaurant has positioned itself to capture the elusive demographic of those who’ll have two scoops of whatever John Wayne’s having (raw hamburger). Gallo Nero is down the street from Big Gay Ice Cream’s second location on Grove Street at 7th Ave. Reached by telephone, a manager at the restaurant seemed confused about the nature of our call. “What’s the issue? We can call our ice cream whatever we want,” he said. Asked if the sign was a reference to Big Gay Ice Cream, or if he could see how it may be interpreted as homophobic, the manager, who declined to provide his name, replied, “They have their own way, we have our own way.”
I thought pretty much all ice cream was straight ice cream, like pretty much everything else.
There Are Only 45 Gay Kids in Louisiana, and They’re Not Really Gay
Wingnut Linda Harvey is back in our pages again, this time urging anti-gay folks to tell gay kids they are really straight:
I wish our side had the kind of boldness to go forward into, you know, San Francisco, or, you know, Provincetown, or, you know, Key West. I’m thinking of all the places that, you know, are homosexual,” Harvey told BarbWire columnist Gina Miller. “But, I mean, we should have just as much conviction about what we’re doing and go forward to the Gay Pride parades and be saying what we believe is true.”
Harvey and Miller also dismissed an HRC survey on harassment of LGBT youth in Southern states such as Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama. “These folks are highly sensitive – I’m not saying these things don’t happen, but I think all of this is exaggeration,” Harvey said. “‘One-in-three LGBT students,’ you might be talking about 45 people in the total of Mississippi and they are not born that way so the issue is we need to be educating and counseling and coming along these kids and saying ‘you don’t need to be in this lifestyle”and harassment can be punished right now, no matter what the reason, so it’s all false.”
I wish we had the guts to march into Harvey’s studio and tell her what an insensitive jerk she’s being when she attacks LGBT kids.
Gay Marriage Will Make the Superstructure of Culture Crash Down
James Dobson of Focus on the Family warns that gay marriage will, like, totally destroy society:
“Well, the family is not just a Christian enterprise. You know, it goes all the way back. Every continent on Earth, every place that mankind has taken hold, the family, the marriage unit has been evident. When you start to weaken that, or undermine it, when it becomes less significant, it influences the entire culture. And, in fact, the entire superstructure of culture can come crashing down. That’s happened in Rome. It happened in Greece. It’s happened throughout history. And I don’t think that America can survive in the form we have known … if we allow the family to disintegrate. And that is, in fact, what’s happening.”
I think if you asked the historians, they would tell you that gays and lesbians winning the right to marry was not what brought the ancient empires of Rome and Greece down. There are serious issues facing the American Family today – poverty, homelessness, ansentee fathers, and divorce, just to name a few. When will the AFA start tackling some of those?????
The Gays Are Making Christians Worship Sodomy
Colorado Republican Gordon Klingenschmitt is freaked out about a NY state ruling that a venue discriminated against a lesbian couple:
“[They] cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home. Christians are fined $13,000 and may no longer celebrate the Christian sacrament of marriage in their own home, unless they also host lesbian weddings. Literally the court is banning Christian worship, saying these Christian farmers cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home. They are now coming into our homes, and dictating our worship. This unconstitutional policy, to punish Christians (with no religious exemptions) will be law in all 50 states, if ENDA is passed.”
Not when your home is a BUSINESS, open to all. You also can’t worship God during a wedding if that worship includes believing in segregation and you own a wedding venue. Because you own a BUSINESS. I didn’t know God wanted to protect business owners and their profits. Guess that whole moneychangers thing in the temple was just a fluke?
