A Storm Gathering: Non-Gay Marriage Advocates Speak Out.

Making issues out of non-issues…

Because sometimes the best way to understand wing-nuttery is to make fun of it.

    FANTASTIC! It helps to remember that we’re not the only ones who think they’re ridiculous, eh?

    This was hilarious, the part about Digital TV and corporate farming- I tried my best not to laugh loudly with my very conservative office mate near here

    Ha!
    Rimsjob.com is at least as funny as the people I heard about on the Rachel Maddow show having teabagging protests.
    I know it’s weird, but I saw one of those gathering storm commercials and was kind of pleased. I live in NJ and conservative groups never focus on us with their batshittery. Yay, we matter!

    The real NOM ad is just amazingly awful. I would like to know, SPECIFICALLY, what freedoms are taken away from straight couples/individuals when gay people get married, OTHER than to be a hateful, bigoted piece of shit.
    Rainbow coalition. haha.

    Baratunde tells me yes that was Lizz Winstead creator of the Daily Show that mobilized then all to put this together.

    That was just all kinds of awesome. Making a non-issue an issue is exactly what this is.

    I absolutely LOVE this! Especially the part where the Mormon with his 3 wives behind him says that he supports “normal” marriage. AMAZING!

    That is great. You are so right Samahita, it’s really the only logical response. And I laughed so hard it made it all worth it.

    My favorite part was who paid for it at the end.

    Religious tolerance to homosexuals to me too is not clear, for even on the most superficial orthodox canons leaves, that the God has created the person in his own image. And I something strongly doubt, that the Lord the God – if it existed – was the homosexual. By the way, this thesis very not bad proves to be true also what for homosexuals this Lord the God has taken down from the person of the earth already the whole two cities. Well he here does not consider, that a sucking sexual member the muzhik it is normal. Our dude, probably. Very well it I understand: to me something not so is to be learnt sometime, that my son has sex with men.
