NOM's wishful (and disrespectful) thinking: SCOTUS ruling is 'illegitimate'  »  Good As You
In yet another fundraising plea (because NOM does little else these days), the already-done-even-if-they-don't-know-it-yet National Organization For Marriage has taken to calling the Obergefell decision "illegitimate": [NOM] Of course if it would've been 5–4 the other way, and the majority had only written "Hibbity Jibbity O'Mibbity Schibbity," NOM would be praising the ruling as historic and definitive and the greatest victory ever known. It wouldn't have mattered that 40+ federal decisions went for our side. NOM would hang its (out of fashion, tattered, frankly foul-smelling) hat on this one decision, no matter how Scalia-ctivist it was. NOM has always been a ...

Focus on the Family creates itemized price list for 'saving' marriage  »  Good As You
You guys, if you donate forty buckerooskies to the notoriously and infamously anti-gay Focus on the Family, you can save one marriage. Or, um, two. They claim different things in different places. Either way, they definitely have managed to put a price tag on the reparation of heterosexual marriages ruined by gays: [Via email] But if you only give $39.99, the straight couple(s) will quietly resent one another over brunch. Anything less than that? Affairs. Annually. ...

Fox News pays this person for his opinions  »  Good As You
God's probably about to drown us all because of marriage equality. So suggests Fox News' own Todd Starnes: [Facebook] (h/t: Joe) For starters, it doesn't even make any sense. The prideful White House came before D.C. precipitation. Since the rainbow of the bible was a sign of hope following the torment, if anything the Obama White House's pro-gay move would be symbolic of the hope that now follows decades of anti-gay demagoguery. If following the Noah's Ark tale logically, the rainbow is the promise of a better day, not a harbinger of things to come. But details, schmetails. As long ...

Pat Buchanan doubles down on 1983 column claiming AIDS is nature's punishment  »  Good As You
Conservative pundit and Fox News regular Pat Buchanan is very angry at the idea of same-sex couples pledging committed love to one another. To drive home his point, he's celebrating the three-decades expansion of a particular disease: Three decades ago, this columnist was denounced for writing that homosexuals “have declared war on human nature. And nature is exacting an awful retribution.” Hateful speech, it was said. Yet, when I wrote that line, AIDS victims in America numbered in the hundreds. Worldwide today they number in the millions. And there is a pandemic of STDs among America’s young who have joined the sexual ...

Is NOM really going to push for a constitutional convention on marriage?  »  Good As You
A while back, I told you about the National Organization For Marriage purchasing a few domain names that pointed to the possibility of a "marriage convention." At first I assumed the domain names to be about a summit or conference of some sort that NOM was cooking up. However, after I saw that they'd also purchased names referring to a "Marriage ConCon" it became clear that a constitutional convention focused on marriage inequality was what they had in the cards. The idea being that a group of states (you'd need at least thirty-four) could, for the first time ...

Yes, the American marriage equality fight is over—the rest is just bluster  »  Good As You
I can't tell you how many times I've opened a window prepared to start a new blog post about this or that or the other ant-LGBT activist who said something ridiculous about Friday's historic SCOTUS ruling. Sometimes it's from a politician who vows to overturn what the court has done. Sometimes it's a professional (read: for pay) activist who insists that the fight will go on. Sometimes it's a media personality who ups the "shock jock" factor in order to keep the base nourished on the fattiest of red meats. But every time, I've ultimately closed the window and returned ...

And by opposition 'from all sides,' FRC means exclusively from the (R) side  »  Good As You
Rounding out today's stream of outrage and defiance following the historic Supreme Court decision, the Family Research Council pretended that there has been opposition "from all sides." Then FRC proceeded to help demonstrate just how partisan the pro-discrimination movement really is: [Family Research Council] Yes, FRC, we all know that Republicans are mad. That's because the GOP has allowed itself to be hijacked by anti-gay special interests like your organization and others, to the point where resistance to minority rights has become deeply and perhaps inextricably (not to mention sadly) engrained into the national party's DNA. These mainstream Republicans have ...

AL Chief Justice Roy Moore calls marriage equality worse than segregation decision  »  Good As You
Just galling: Washington (CNN)The chief justice of Alabama's Supreme Court and a leading opponent of same-sex marriage on Friday called the Supreme Court's ruling to legalize gay and lesbian nuptials nationwide "even worse" than the Court's 19th century decision to uphold racial segregation. "I believe it's worse because it affects our entire system of morality and family values," Ray Moore told CNN in a phone interview Friday. FULL: Alabama chief justice: Marriage ruling worse than segregation decision [CNN] There's been a lot of talk this week about how some of us are trying to eradicate certain views and beliefs and cultural symbols, ...
