NOM's 'International Org. For Marriage' gets an Executive Director  »  Good As You
For the past few years, the National Organization For Marriage has been paying Opus Fidelis, a Catholic technology firm, to handle much of its social media and web work. The head of Opus Fidelis is David Lejeune, a man with deep international ties within the Catholic church. Apparently David Lejeune will be the head of NOM's spinoff, the International Organization For Marriage, whenever that long gestating effort gets under way. At least that is how he was listed at a recent event held at the UN: [Political Network for Values] Not a huge surprise, since ...

Read: AFA plays innocent about making Bryan Fischer a known pundit; no one's buying it  »  Good As You
Here's the American Family Association saying they repudiate (a small percentage of) the nasty rhetoric former senior spokesperson Bryan Fischer, in an obvious attempt to coax the Southern Poverty Law Center into removing the AFA from its active hate groups list: Here's the Southern Poverty Law Center having none of it. NONE. OF. IT: *** BTW, this Patrick Vaughn, who penned this whole "we're so innocent" routine, recently wrote this about gay people and our unions: Homosexuals have fought doggedly for the legalization of gay marriage, believing that if society will label their relationships “marriage” their hunger to feel accepted ...

FRC prays for judges, governors, legislators to ignore marriage equality rulings  »  Good As You

Yes you will coexist with civil marriage equality, Tony Perkins; that's a demand, not a request  »  Good As You
On yesterday's edition of his viciously anti-gay radio show, proudly discriminatory commentator Tony Perkins demanded that people like him will never accept marriage equality regardless of the fact that we already have thirty-six* states, full federal rights, and the very likely prospect of fifty-state equality by year's end. Because it's "lawlessness," insists Perkins, and "lawlessness cannot reign" until someone "takes out" God. Here's the clip: Mr. Perkins, you can rip up every same-sex wedding invite you relieve. You can spend your months of June driving around looking for lesbian brides to scoff at. You can spend your Sundays preaching about how our ...

NOM reveals plan for taking people's money even though they've clearly lost  »  Good As You
National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown has big plans for how he will justify his employment even though his shockingly ineffective and fail-prone organization has actually helped exacerbate his movement's losses: I have to tell you, I am really excited about our opportunities this year. We're in the best position we've been in in years thanks to the support of you and other members of NOM. With a solid pro-marriage majority in both the House and the US Senate, populated by real marriage champions like Representatives Raul Labrador and John Fleming in the House and Senators Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and ...

Audio: Activist judge Roy Moore gives rambling, unconvincing interview to Tony Perkins  »  Good As You
Roy Moore, Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and longtime conservative activist, is certainly enjoying a few minutes of notoriety from his latest publicity stunt. If you haven't heard, that's the one where he's insisting that Alabama government can simply ignore federal court rulings that strike down the state's marriage ban as unconstitutional. Most legal scholars are dismissing the PR act for what it is, and some groups are even pursuing ethics charges against Moore. For his part, Moore is reaching out to fellow anti-gay activists like Tony Perkins. Here's an interview from this afternoon's edition ...

Report: The AFA has fired Bryan Fischer as Director of Issue Analysis  »  Good As You
Astute readers will note that whenever I've written about infamously over the top anti-LGBT activist Bryan Fischer, I've most always referred to him by his prominent title at the American Family Association. It's pretty obvious why I've done this: because I've wanted to make sure to connect Bryan's jaw-dropping rhetoric, which has managed to disparage just about every minority group (and how!) in the handful of years that Bryan's been in the public eye, directly to his employer. I knew that if Bryan wanted to keep talking the way we all know Bryan wants to keep ...

Openly anti-gay Chief Justice of AL Supreme Court vows to openly defy marriage equality  »  Good As You
His name being so associated with conservative activism, it's easy to forget that Roy Moore is actually the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. And here is his latest transgression: In a letter to Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, Moore details what he calls “legitimate concerns” about whether the federal courts have the authority to consider the constitutionality of Alabama’s marriage laws — asking the governor not to enforce the ruling. Citing the Bible and an 1825 letter from Thomas Jefferson, Moore declares, “Our State Constitution and our morality are under attack by a federal court decision that has no basis in ...

AFA's Director of Issues Analysis: LGBT activists possess 'unvarnished energy of Satan himself  »  Good As You
For the most part I now ignore people like Bryan Fischer and their desperate cries in a thickening political wilderness. However, sometimes we need a reminder that this man has spoken at top conservative conferences alongside GOP presidential candidates: [RWW] Eh, at least we're unvarnished. If you're going to be Beelzebub's spokesperson, you should at least go full out. ...

Wait, FRC has been able to 'uphold natural marriage'? That's news to all non–cave dwellers!  »  Good As You
In its latest fundraising pitch, the Family Research Council highlights many things that the anti-LGBT org. is supposedly doing. Many of them are stretches of the truth because, well—it's FRC. But this highlighted one is just a blatant lie: Of course if FRC meant "natural marriage" the way people who actually care about accurate usage of the English language mean it, then they would be right. Natural marriage has, in fact, been upheld during this time of remarkable progress for marriage equality. Because marriage equality is not a threat. Obviously. But that's not how FRC means it. FRC is telling its supporters ...

Because when am I not calling up Fox News personalities to do my bidding?  »  Good As You
Latest conservative theory about me, my power, and the one ten minute post I wrote about the Legatus Summit: [Fringe talk show host Cliff Kincaid] later called on Shepard Smith to “come out of the closet,” accusing the Fox News host of secretly being “one of the most powerful homosexuals in the media.” Kincaid speculated on his show Saturday that activist Jeremy Hooper, who first highlighted the anti-gay views of Legatus, had personally called Smith to get Baier in trouble. “For what we know, this guy Hooper or one of his friends may have called Shep Smith, and said, ...

Anti-equality conservative admits GLAAD CAP is 'smart' and 'effective'  »  Good As You
Brandon McGinley, a senior staffer with the Pennsylvania Family Institute who also writes for a number of conservative (and largely anti-LGBT) publications, has admitted that GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project (which I created with a small team at GLAAD) is "smart" and "effective" strategy: When a people is as risk-averse in political posturing as we are, the movement most willing to exact a personal price for opposition will win. This explains the American elite’s newfound passion for LGBT rights. The movement carefully worked to make it socially embarrassing to hold traditional views of sexual morality. For example, the Gay and ...

Inevitable justice temporarily delayed in Alabama  »  Good As You
In order to give Alabama's Republican Attorney General "time to present his arguments to the Eleventh Circuit so that the appeals court can decide whether to dissolve or continue the stay pending appeal (assuming there will be an appeal.), Judge Callie Granade has stayed her ruling in favor of marriage equality in the Yellowhammer State. The stay will remain in effect for fourteen days, unless the appeals court dissolves it earlier: BREAKING: Federal Judge Issues 14-Day Stay On Alabama Same-Sex Marriage [J.M.G.] Annoying, frustrating, needless, and a disservice to the loving same-sex couples who have waited too long ...

Answer: Suggesting that vendors who have a problem with a minority population might put some form of poison in said minority population's baked goods if they get too uppity with their desire for nondiscrimination in publication accommodation: [Ben] Carson also criticized political correctness as he answered a question about gay marriage — and followed up by flaunting decorum with the type of comment that endears him with the base but could hurt his cross-party appeal. "What I have a problem with is when people try to force people to act against their beliefs because they say 'they're discriminating against me.' So they ...
