The Solution to Gay Marriage

Here’s Maggie Gallagher repeating her current strategy heartfelt reasons for opposing gay marriage:

Gay activists treat Americans who disagree with them about same-sex marriage like bigots.

They want to use the law to suppress and marginalize and stigmatize.

It’s just shameful and wrong for these activists to try and portray good Americans in that way.

That’s why the hatred…the harassment…the attempts to bully have actually created a huge echo chamber of people flocking to the National Organization for Marriage.

Aaaaand, here’s a sign from NOM’s Indianapolis rally, at which Maggie spoke.

That was yesterday. No comment from NOM yet. While we’re waiting, I mocked up a new logo for NOM. I hope they like it.  Here’s their old logo…

NOM's orginal logo

And here’s the redesign:

Finally, here’s an interview with the man who brought that protest sign:

    There are no words for this. The self-hatred is mind-blowing.

    Your redesign needs to be plastered all over the internet, and made into actual signsthat people can hold at EVERY one of NOM’s Hate-A-Palooza stops!

    I want to TISINAI this one.

    Gay activists treat Americans who disagree with them about same-sex marriage like bigots.

    When they act like bigots, when they tell lies about people they do not know and know nothing about– sure. People who only disagree I’m always willing to talk to.

    They want to use the law to suppress and marginalize and stigmatize.

    I’m not sure who is getting supressed and marginalized and stigmatized. I think being called a threat to marriage, freedom, children, family, religion, and western civilization– all of which NOM has done– seems like a fairly strong attempt to do just those things. I think denying gay families legal recognition, and the children of gay people the protection that having married parents would provide, is clearly all of those things.

    It’s just shameful and wrong for these activists to try and portray good Americans in that way.

    See #2 above. shameful, wrong, and dare I say it, highly indicative of a bigoted mentality.

    That’s why the hatred…the harassment…the attempts to bully have actually created a huge echo chamber of people flocking to the National Organization for Marriage.

    The echo chamber is, i believe, a matter of not having anyone show up for your cross country hate-a-looza.

    I was at this rally yesterday. This guy whacked me with one of his signs, yet I was the one who had to move for intimidating him. Here is a link to the newscast video that shows the END of the altercation with the police telling me to move:

    Good job Larry!! Thank you.

    NOM could care less about marriage. They were thrilled yesterday about the NJ decision to not look at the inequality issues of civil unions..which has nothing to do with marriage. All they care about is siphoning up as many hate dollars as they can to pay their salaries. Twice divorced Maggie is hungry folks..she needs a lot of $$$ to fuel that ballooning body!

    I find it interesting that the guy in the NOM button told him “we don’t want anything inflammatory. We’re here in love,” as if the sign itself wasn’t inflammatory. That was an opportunity for NOM guy to go on record condemning the content of the sign, but he did not, even after the old guy said “I’m with you guys.” Before that, the smiling young woman in the NOM button tried to eavesdrop, but declined the opportunity to condemn the content of the sign. Finally, the older woman warned him not to talk to the polite Courage Campaign woman. That was three people in solidarity with the old guy, and two clearly with NOM. None of those three people said a word about the content of his sign. They were all trying to protect him from the dangerous lesbian. Interesting.

    The new NOM logo depicts exactly what came to my mind when I 1st saw Larry Adams’ protest sign for NOM’s appearance in Indianapolis.
    NOM’s Logo / Protest sign could be tweeked so the nooses verlap /intertwine, brought to America by: Then on the bottom, post face shots of NOM, Brian Brown, Maggie Gallagher, Robert P. George, Louis Marinelli, Bishop Harry Jackson. Give NOM your hard earned Money so these folks can live opulent lifestyles.
    These protest sign would Work in DC on Sunday, August 13, Freedom Plaza or on Steps of US Capitol (NOM Tour posted schedule)

    Good job on the new NOM logo graphic, Rob.

    Fan of waking up now says:

    “suppress and marginalize and stigmatize” — Ms. Gallagher has some serious nerve! I can’t get married (barring a sham heterosexual marriage) in 45 out of 50 states, and she feels suppressed, marginalized, and stigmatized?

    I wish she could have had the experience of being a gay adolescent and young adult in the 1970s and 1980s. She has no clue about the matter of being suppressed, marginalized, and stigmatized — not to mention continually threatened by violence and death, and subject to fully legal discrimination in employment, housing, etc.

    I’d like to see posters at the next stops (beginning tomorrow in St. Paul, Minn.) with the words


    next to photos of Matthew Shepard and other hate crimes victims; and Jesse Helms, Anita Bryant, Jerry Falwell, Lon Mabon, Will Perkins, Scott Lively, Paul Cameron, certain politicians in Uganda, etc.

    I fully endorse NOM’s right to speak and not be shouted down. Also, yes, of course, Brian Brown shouldn’t have been “charged” by two people in Providence. At the same time, I understand the chargers’ rage. And being barked at by two people is quite trivial compared to the long, shameful history of abuse, violence, and murder of which LGBT people have been singled out as victims.

    About the nooses: Is it fair to tar NOM with that brush? To the extent that NOM ever cites the Bible — which does in fact say that homosexuals should be put to death — to justify opposing same-sex marriage, yes. (Mr. Adams takes God duly seriously. He takes God at His Word.) So if I had the wherewithal, I’d find a quote from Maggie Gallagher or Brian Brown about the Bible, add that to Rob’s nooses graphic, blow the whole image and print out and put it posters and distribute tons of such posters at the rallies in St. Paul and subsequent bus tour stops.

    Another symbol that would be entirely fitting at these rallies would be the pink triangle. Maybe a pink triangle under which is written: Brian Brown: Do you know where this symbol comes from?

    All right, so let’s see; any sign presented at a rally is now indicative of the mindset of all participants at that rally.

    In that case, I present the gay and lesbian community’s support and endorsement of NAMBLA.

    Add to that the fact that this NAMBLA supporter is a hero of the gay and lesbian community and of the Obama administration, and we can state that the gay and lesbian community endorses and supports NAMBLA.

    So Rob, we’re waiting for you to condemn Harry Hay — and to condemn Kevin Jennings for supporting Harry Hay. And until that point, we can state that you are a NAMBLA supporter.

    Unless, of course, you would like to admit that you don’t want to follow the rules you’re trying to impose on others.

    And here’s one I find particularly entertaining: Rob Tisinai screams about nooses, but supports and endorses hanging effigies of white females.

    After all, Rob Tisinai hasn’t condemned Chad Michael Morrisette and Mito Aviles for doing so, so in the interim, we can assume he supports it.

    These Bible literalists are sick, naive and uninformed. They constantly repeat falsehoods as if they’re gospel, don’t take the whole book of Leviticus and its history into account, nor the rest of the Bible, the Old and New Testaments. Study the history of the Bible and it’s certainly NOT the “word of God.” It was written by many different MEN over long separate periods of time as allegory and myth and is clearly not divine. There are countless conflicts from within it and each religion, denomination, sect or cult interprets it their own way. Larry Adams is to be pitied for being so naive. But the trouble he foments is real and palpable! There are too many people who “think” just like he does. I wish mainstream media would have the guts to expose AND correct the bigotry and intolerance of people like Larry Adams. Only in that way could fairness and equality prevail.

    As a Christian, I agree with this man completely :)
    Same sex Marriage is immoral, Biblically incorrect, and against the Constitution of the United States.
    Gays, do what you want, But your “Ceremony” will never be called Marriage.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Really rarely i find a blog site that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is fantastic; the issue is something which insufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I am happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something in regards to this.

    lets all remember that maggie has disappeared from the scene – after it was found her idea of traditional marriage was not one, but 2 illegitimate children
    Why is she at nom -for the money dertainly
    But also because her catholic church is mentally molesting her – telling her that if she doesnt do the job, God will send her to hell

    Maybe it is because I am not familiar with the bible and the man and woman thing that I cannot bring myself to see the supporters of this posters’ perspectives. I am 13 years old. And my heart is broken by this logo. As a regular child growing up in the 21st century, I am at a loss for words seeing this. No one deserves to die just because of love. People grow to hate each other because they cannot see each other’s understanding- or rather, they are willfully blind to it and choose not to. We are all people who live, laugh, and love. Does it really matter who we love if we get that feeling of happiness inside of us? : (
