Audio: Ya know, ‘normal’ families, like those where a hetero dad wages daily, unprovoked ‘culture war’ on his LGBT neighbors

6A00D8341C503453Ef013480E952A6970CGay soldiers painted as grenades lying in wait to destroy “normal” families? The word “so-called” used to denigrate loving couples? Monolithic rejection of an entire West Coast city’s values system?

Why it’s just another day at the office for Matt “one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’” Barber:

Uhm, “even proponents don’t cite benefits — they simply say it’s about equality“? Well that’s essentially like saying “even accountants don’t cite 2 + 2 — they simply say 4.” Because in both instances, it’s the summation of the parts that leads to the solution — a solution that can be represented in shorthand terms.

Now if you’ll excuse us, Rice-A-Roni executives needs us at the secret “San Francisco-style social experimentation” lab. You did know that company is a front for the homosexual agenda, right?

Audio: Matt’s just a dad trying to make it. Oh, in a world sans LGBT people or fair courts, that is.

Screen Shot 2010-11-08 At 10.38.54 AmOn Saturday morning, I was literally three feet away from him. A young dad, like a million other dads, playing with cutely rambunctious kids who seemed excited to be in a new state for the weekend. To the young’uns, this Philadelphia journey was surely just a family vacation, one of many they’ve been able to experience in the past few years, thanks to dad’s work travels. And dad was also surely thankful for this time to unwind with wife and children — a pause to cherish the truly important things in life.

But Matt Barber’s attire of a dress shirt, dress pants, and sensible suspenders indicated that his respite here in the hotel lobby was but a temporary one. While the rest of his family exited the revolving doors, off to see some of Philly’s sites or perhaps hit up a local restaurant that a back-home friend told them was a “can’t miss” destination, the patriarch had to stay back and conduct his usual business. Business that seeks to tell other kinds of families that it’s their loving bonds themselves that they should put on pause. Business that ignores credible science in order to foster myths about the one, true kind of sexual orientation or gender identity that makes up the world’s “norm.” Business that is all up in everyone else’s business, with a goal of stopping the progress that a vulnerable population has been able to make here in America.

Business that seeks to fire any judge who puts the the public’s shared constitution above certain, cherry-picked portions of certain people’s personal faith reads:

More deliberately anti-intellectual assessments of the Iowa judicial retention vote, this time from Maggie Gallagher:

*AUDIO SOURCE: Maggie Gallagher, segment 2 [Drew Mariani Show, 11/1/10]

That whole “what is this, Russia?” thing? It comes straight from NOM’s latest e-blast. It’s their strategy here: To act like opponents of the vindictive attempt to oust judges based on one personal whim about one certain decision are opposing the right to vote itself. Maggie and Co. know that their unbelievably narrow read of these judge’s long careers is an indefensible misuse of the retention system (which was designed to take politics out of the independent judiciary), so they’ve changed the conversation to make it sound as if they are the ultimate defenders of the retention process, while the pro-equality, pro-fairness side is standing in opposition to the same.

As per usual, it’s outright deceit designed to cleanse the hands and moral compasses of those who are lashing out in unneighborly ways. And once again: It just might work here in talking point-happy America, where everything from the “[insert rock star] had to have his stomach pumped” story to the “protect marriage” rhetoric survives due to repetition rather than truth.

Audio: Gillibrand committed as ever to #DADT; Dioguardi might put hand on table after others have done heavy lifting

New York debate for U.S. Senate: Incumbent Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D and former Congressman Joe Dioguardi (R) speak out on #DADT repeal. Basically it’s a split between a “moral imperative” to lead vs. a willingness to wait while good and decent citizens are discharged because of who they are:

MORE: Sen. Gillibrand cites #DADT appeal as a top two point where she breaks from her boss. Meanwhile, the moderator gives Dioguardi the perfect opportunity to repudiate Carl Paladino’s hurtful comments, yet the Republican challenger fails to seize it:

Audio: An ‘Other’ one

heather-Mae-FordSinger/songwriter Heather Mae Ford says of her latest tune:

I dedicate this song to Seth Walsh, Raymond Chase, Justin Aaberg, Billy Lucas, Asher Brown, Tyler Clementi, and all those in the LGBT community that have ever been affected by cruelty or harassment. You are a human being and you do not deserve that. You are not alone and it gets better.

Have a listen:

“Other People”

“He was great,” she told reporters,

“I wish I could have helped in some small way.”

The thing is, she passed him in the hallway

Without a shred of all this sympathy.

The prom king said he was surprised

As if he’d known the guy himself.

Now he champions this latest cause

With friends who put the kid through hell.

Saying: Aren’t other people awful?

Shouldn’t have someone done something?

Aren’t other people awful?

Guess it’s easier to do nothing.

Today the student body grieves

The same that spurned and kicked and spit.

And they mourn a candle they’ve snuffed out

But never fought to keep it lit.

They deny they’ve made this martyr,

It was his own blood that he spilled,

And they pretend they loved him all along

To assuage their killer’s guilt.

Saying: Aren’t other people awful?

Shouldn’t have someone done something?

Aren’t other people awful?

Guess it’s easier to do nothing.

It takes one look, it takes one hand

It takes one daring final stand

We can smash walls with just a touch

When brittle words are not enough

Hold firm until the light of day

Or else we’ll keep on sadly saying

Aren’t other people awful?

Shouldn’t have someone done something?

Aren’t other people awful?

Guess it’s easier to do nothing.

Aren’t other people awful?

Shouldn’t have someone done something?

Aren’t other people awful?


Guess it’s easier to do nothing.

Audio: ‘It doesn’t matter what society does’ says duo that claims gays don’t matter in society

Tony Perkins is a man who tells church congregations that gays are being “held captive by the enemy,” who tells the military that the open service-supporting Commander in Chief is “willing to jeopardize our nation’s security to advance the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby,” and who daily says to the public, through his position as head of the conservative behemoth Family Research Council, that LGBT people should remain unequal, unprotected, and unworthy of a slice of America’s proverbial pie.

Peter Sprigg, FRC’s Senior Policy Fellow, has gone even further than Tony:

But don’t you DARE blame either of these two men for fostering the sort of world that causes gay people to internalize negative messages. You know, because it doesn’t matter what society does:
