Video: Tony’s TV priorities: Making ‘Real Housewives’ drama seem that much less frivolous

Not sure which is more annoying about the following clip:

-Tony’s aggressive attempt to misinform the audience about Judge Walker’s ruling, acting as if it would force Christians to personally accept, preach in favor of, or perform same-sex marriage ceremonies (hint: it won’t!).

-That someone like Tony can talk for over twenty minutes about the California marriage case with several mentions of the voters who voted in favor of bias, yet not once mention the near-half of the state voters who came out against Prop 8, or the millions of gay people who are deeply affected by it. In what other political matter is that kind of oversight okay?!

-The host’s constant attempts to rile up a Texas vs. gays mentality (e.g. “As long as there’s a Texas, there’ll be a moral course”; “This wouldn’t happen in Big D, now would it?”)

-The host’s aggressively anti-intellectual explanation of how our republic supposedly works, which wholly ignores the crucial role of our independent judiciary

-The very fact that TBN had Tony on for two segments to discuss the biggest problems currently affecting our government and way of life, and gay people’s basic rights, fair treatment, and happiness is what he chose to discuss.

But hey, why choose just one piece o’annoyance. Here’s Tony’s full appearance from last night’s edition of TBN’s “Praise The Lord”:

Reliably volatile messaging’s on the wall, but NOM doesn’t seem to care. Seems to like it, even.

They’ve been featuring it on their Twitter page for months. But now the National Organization For Marriage has solidified their bond to Louis “gays want pedophilia, polygamy, and prostitution” Marinelli‘s incendiary “Protect Marriage: One Man, One Woman” Facebook page, embedding that very F’book wall into their TwoMillionForMarriage site:

So why is this a thing of note? Well, because this is a Facebook page where conversations like this one are playing out on a daily basis:

This is the same F’book wall where a commenter recently suggested that California should be “glassed with nuclear warheads,” and one where gays have been called “victims of mental illness.” Where not only the commenters bend towards the fringe, but where even the moderator posts Paul Cameron-quipping pages that claim gays are “propelling our society toward a premature demise”:

And it’s all now an official part of Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown’s National Organization For Marriage.
