NOM Makes Hypocritical Plea in North Carolina

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

NOM Logo“Dear Marriage Supporter, I’ll keep this short, but the need in North Carolina is urgent. We’ve just learned that gay marriage supporters in North Carolina have been stockpiling mountains of cash.

It’s looking almost certain that in the final days before the election, they will launch an all-out air war, blanketing North Carolina TV and radio with ads full of lies and misinformation about the Marriage Protection Amendment–using scare tactics to maximum effect before we have a chance to respond.”

NewsCorp “Gay Wedding” Magazine Launches in September

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Newscorp's "Gay Wedding" MagazineOh, delicious irony. It has come to my attention that News Corp, parent company to virulently homophobic Fox News and NY Post doesn’t apparently hate the gays enough to not make a buck off them, if the opportunity presents itself.

Seems Dan Avery over at Queerty got a hold of a pre-launch ad pitch sales kit that News Corp circulated for their new glossy magazine, WEDDING pride. The mag will feature, “editorial content that celebrates the Gay Community and its recent achievement.” Avery reports:

Launching in September, the mag (produced by News Corp’s Community Newspaper Group subsidiary) will have an initial distribution of 35,000 among “the traditional as well as the newer gay and gay friendly communities within the Tri-State area.” (Translation: Chelsea, Park Slope, Fire Island, Montclair, South Orange, Asbury Park.)

Why the Christian Right Loves Their Family Values Hypocrites

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Q. What do you call a conservative gay legislator who’s in the closet?

A. A safe vote against gay rights.

As usual, a bunch of politicians have had sex scandals recently. As usual, a good helping of them have been family-values types. And as usual, progressive bloggers have been surprised and appalled that many of the scandalous are family-values types, and even more shocked because a bunch of the conservative family-values adulterers seem to be skating.

How is it that Mark “Appalachian Trail” Sanford is still Governor of South Carolina, Swinging John Ensign is still [Senator] of Nevada, and David Vitter, who may have qualified for a loyalty rewards card at one or more houses of prostitution, is still Senator from Louisiana? How are some of these guys running for re-election while Eliot Spitzer is out of office and Bill Clinton got impeached? How is it that the far right wing, in the person of Glenn Beck, actually made an abortive attempt to recruit Eric Massa away from the Democrats after his sex scandal broke?

There seems to be a double standard here, because in fact there is. And while that’s repugnant, it’s not illogical. If a voter genuinely wants the government to impose public restrictions on sexual liberties, voting for a creepy adulterous hypocrite is a sound strategy.

There are two bedrock political rules in play here. First, you should always vote for the candidate based on their policies. Second, political scandals become harmful when they resonate with some larger concern or anxiety about the candidate.
