NOM Staggers Toward the Fringe

It’s clear that ever since Brian Brown stepped in for Magger Gallagher at the National Organization for Marriage, the group is becoming more and more of a fringe organization.  Even so, they surprised me today with an entry on their blog.  You know what they did?

They referenced World Net Daily.

NOMblog has an entire entry quoting […]

Helping the Kids

I had a lot of fun making “Maggie Gallagher Meets St. Peter,” but this morning I wondered how long it had been since I’d done something to help and protect children myself (and not just our nieces and nephews).

Fortunately, my friend Jeff is involved with The Torch Foundation:

The Torch Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) […]

Maggie Gallagher Meets St. Peter

Here’s a little animation experiment I made using this site.

Please share if you like it.  Note that the Closed Captioning button is active if you want subtitles.

Blah.

Ugh. Sick. Hard to think. Just want laugh.

Here’s a beautiful parody of crazy Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann. If you don’t know who she is, watch the first minute or two of this clip (no, this clip is not the parody):

Now, here’s the parody of this actual elected Congressional rep:

And if you’re […]

Loving Gays SO MUCH You Want to Send Them to Hell

Peter LaBarbera? The anti-gay who obsessively photographs gay sex (because he’s so against it), and who spreads terrible lies about gays molesting children?  He has a new definition of what it means to “love” gays in a Christian way:

Send them to Hell.

Yesterday Pete posted a video from the genuinely grotesque Molotov Mitchell.  See, Molly has […]

Book Club, Anyone?

I’d like to try an experiment. I’ve started reading The Political Brain, about the role of reason and emotion in political campaigns and decision-making. It could be useful in figuring out the best way of working toward full civil equality. My plan is to blog about it as I read it, and I thought it […]

Exciting New Magazine

After the 15-second ad:

“Whither thou goest, I will go”

I’m not in the mood for outrage today.  I feel like something a bit lighter, like poking fun at our opponents.  Sometimes they really do deserve it.  Take the Ruth Institute, which is NOM’s attempt at youth outreach, founded by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse.  I’ve already had a chuckle at their youth-oriented slogan (“Making marriage […]

NOM Cranks Up the Nasty

Brian Brown is enough to make me (almost) respect Maggie Gallagher.  Brian has taken over some of Maggie responsibilities at the National Organization for Marriage, and he just posted this on NOM’s blog:

In Great Britain, thanks to a new ruling, the principle of nondiscrimination now trumps religious liberty and common sense. […]

The 3 Facts You Should Know about Hate Crime Laws

Maggie Gallagher recently vented — dishonestly — in a column decrying Judge Walker’s “judicial tyranny,” quoting Rush Limbaugh:

Rush Limbaugh had his finger on the truth. In the nearly half-hour speech he gave after the Proposition 8 ruling (“the American people are boiling over!”), Rush said that Walker “did not just slap down the […]
