Finito la Commedia


People who make me want to secede from the Union – part II

It’s Not that We Hate Gay People…Um, Well…Yes, It Is

If your state has a “Defense of Marriage” amendment on the ballot and you’re considering whether to vote for it, you’re probably relatively centrist.

After all, if you hated the very idea of people who are different from you being in committed, loving relationships, you would just vote for the damn thing and hope that would put an end to it.

But if you’re on the fence, please consider this short post so you’ll know who you’re getting into bed with.

I don’t have much to say, except that I have never seen the anti-gay marriage folks state their true objectives so boldly.

Here are some actual quotes from the primarygroup promoting the “Defense of Marriage” amendment in Wisconsin, 2006 – the Family Research Institute and their spokesperson, Julaine Appling.

Julaine Appling - Proof that Satan has infiltrated the Christian church“I think we’ve been extremely tolerant in allowing [homosexuals] to live wherever they choose.”
   – Julaine Appling, Isthmus, September 9, 2005 [a Madison, Wisconsin alternative daily which does not take a position against the amendment]

“Society needs to control sexual activity,” she said. “Anytime that you have rampant sexual activity, with no prescriptions on it, society is headed for trouble.”
-Julaine Appling, Family Research Institute of Wisconsin, “Decision 2006: Wisconsin votes on Same-Sex Marriage,” KARE 11, October 23, 2006

Does that represent your view? If so,

Go Blue State Sesesh!

“Society needs to control sexual activity”? Well, hey, Julaine, didn’t we try that prior to the sixties? Action–reaction. Thanks for the lack of euphanisms. You may have just brought gay bashers to their knees.

I couldn’t agree more, Julaine! Who ever said that sexual activity was a right? Our country needs a lock-down on this kind of stuff. I say we reproduce in test-tubes and close all multi-sex schools. Send the gays to French Quebec and the Lesbians to to Holland. By the way, those earrings look familiar. They look a lot like little hand-cuffs.
