Hurley-ing insults: IA anti-gay vow to up his anti-gayness

by Jeremy Hooper

In regards to the possibility that his state's Supremes will concur with a lower court and grant marriage equality to gays, Chuck Hurley offers the following thoughts to Focus on the Family's Citizenlink news site:

200812080914“We who believe in marriage are going to have to be vigilant over the coming years,"..."This assault will not end regardless of how the Iowa Supreme Court rules.
“The only way to stop that judicial activism is to get a constitutional amendment through the Legislature.”

We reply:

200812080903-2"Hey, Chuckles: Get over yourself, brother. The only reason this matter of fairness is militarized is because your side has declared a "culture war" with a battle plan that wishes to wipe homosexuality from public existence. So when you say "assault," you are referring to your crew's desire to use a a mostly religious-motivated mob to override civil protections, not LGBT folks' desires to be safe, free, and equal. And when you say this assault won't end, what you really mean is that your troops will not stop using the gay marriage bogeyman to fundraise, rally, and rile your forces up into a generally queer-hostile mindset, as such is what butters your bread most effectively.
Oh, and as for "judicial activism"? Well the only true way to stop the form to which you are referring C-dog, is for your side to quit defining the term as referring to any ruling that doesn't jibe with your evangelical worldview. This assault that you all have waged against the independent judiciary is almost as disturbing as the one that you have waged against your fellow living, breathing, loving, tax-paying citizens. Almost."

It's unclear how, exactly, Chuck would suggest his side be "more vigilant" against the gays, considering they've already worked to ban, burn, or boycott every LGBT-centric proposal under the sun. Though we hear one idea is to get the entire team responsible for "Rosie Live" to take over the reins of Ellen's hit show.

Relentless, these folks.

Your thoughts

From Iowa Family Policy Center's email about Day Without a Gay they recommend businesses reevaluate the productivity of their "homosexual" employees if they engage in civic activism.

"If homosexuals chose to participate today, their employers may wonder: are their homosexual employees willing to sacrifice the success of the company to promote a personal agenda, or are they are making such an insignificant contribution to the company that they were not missed?

In the current climate of slow-downs, lay-offs, and corporate belt tightening, homosexuals who risk their jobs to make political points shouldn't be surprised if they are welcomed back with pink slips."
