Online hate? Game on, boys!
Remember a few weeks back when Matt Barber was whining about the "mean" gays and their online threats of violence? And remember yesterday, when Pete LaBarbera was making a big stink about the "hate" of the radical left? Well, we have taken those scapegoat-y attempts as a call to action. A call to post more and more of the "loving" Christian nonsense that we encounter on a weekly daily hourly minute-by-minute basis.
The following quotes all come from one particular Digg page, in which the topic of eHarmony allowing gays to use their service is being discussed. And yes, violence against gays is predicted/threatened:
That took us about three minutes to cobble together, looking at one little Digg page. We didn't have to cherry pick through hundreds of blog comments, as folks like Matt and Peter have had to do. Find a public forum wherein gay rights is discussed in a largely unmoderated section, and the unhinged anti-gay will show itself in even more abundance that either poor grammar or typos.
Look for us to bring you many, many more examples as we find them.
Appeal to pity huh? Try to make people feel sorry for them because of the 1 in 1000 person who's...overly vocal hurts their feelings, yet fail to recognize the 9 in 10 on their side who would rather beat us down with a crowbar on the street just for holding hands?
Ignorance is a powerful weapon for the anti-gay side.

"They were matching bolts with nuts.
Now they will be matching bolts with bolts and nuts with nuts. HOW DO YOU SCREW THEM?"
Short pithy answer - Dude, you've already screwed us enough, thanks.
Longer more thoughtful answer -- Aren't straight people supposed to be big butch engineering experts and fags like me are supposed to shun tools and labor? Yet even I know you can't screw a bolt or a nut! That's what SCREWS are for! Bolts and nuts get THREADED together.

This is so right on topic. I've been accumulating my own quotes from the boards and posting them with commentary. I promise, I've had no shortage of kisses from this muse.

Umm, there are several gay porn websites and sex manuals out there if you're needing instruction.

I know the thread. I found it earlier - I've been on a digg-down spree already. It doesn't achieve much (There is an anti-gay cabal of some type running, they shout to each other when they find something worthy of mass-digging), but it makes me feel better.

It's definitely things like this that make the entire struggle seem petty. None of their comments actually make sense or have any sort of logic behind it. Ugh.

No doubt members of thousands of "Whites-only" groups acted the same way when legally compelled to accept those terrible non-white people. Such disgusting spoiled brats.
I myself wouldn't touch e-harmony even if I were single. I have no desire to give my money to bigots.
