Audio: We'll compare you to anything we want. And if you call us out on it, we'll compare you to 'spinners'
If someone mentions marriage equality for same-sex couples in the same sentence as bestiality and incest, is it really "spin" to say that saidperson is unfairly affixing the three concepts to one another? Well listen to this clip from today's "Liberty Live" radio show and decide for yourself. In it, Rev. Jerry Falwell Jr. makes the gay/brother-loving/sheep-schtupping connection, and Matt Barber defends it/ denounces anyone who would dare be offended by it:
Well yes, Matt, the homosexual bloggers will respond to this. But "spin"? Yea? That's what you wanna go with? That's what you think we're doing? Because from where we sit, we quite clearly hear a religious person, Jerry Falwell Jr., connecting our lives and loves with things that would NEVER be mentioned in the same breath with heterosexual people (even those who "sin" with premarital sex or adultery). And through our gay ears, we hear a brutal affront to our existences and the acceptance thereof.
So you can call us aggressive self-lovers if you must, Matt, but we are always, always, always, ALWAYS gonna have a thing or two to say when a self-professed personal of morality connects our bond to that which might exist between a human female and a goat!

And yeah, they're trying to have it both ways. "Love the sinner, hate the sin" doesn't work AND is unbiblical AND is irrelevant to the discussion of civil marriage rights.
I swear, it's like they're trying to drive us nuts.

Oh, GREAT! Another Fartwell! But, the one thing that Matt Blubber said is that "...fuckin' outside of marriage..." is sinful. But, then, they don't want us to be able to get married, so that means that they are making up the rules to suit themselves.
And, yes, using bestiality and pedophilia in the same sentence as same-sex marriage is tantamount to equating the two things. The lying liars might try to spin it as something else, but ultimately it is what it is. But, the one thing that is undeniable is that they can no longer attack us based simply on the fact that we are same-sex couples. They have to bring up more scintillating or salacious topics to fire up the angry, blind hordes now. They can't do that by just vilifying us. And, in some sense at least, that is a good thing. Of course, as an intended result, the stupid among the angry hordes do end up thinking that all LGBT persons are pedophillic bestiallic sex-driven zombies.
I, personally, don't hear a lot about bestiality, but the way that these guys keep bringing it up, you would think that they all must have secret livestock pens for their personal sexual pleasure. And, that they must all have dreamy eyes for their siblings.
But, when we point out that ALMOST ALL sexual molestation of children is done by STRAIGHT men (and women), then their attempts to link us to their own sexual proclivities to us, ends up turning around and biting themselves on the ass.

Thanks for that. It is reassuring that they have to go back to beastiality yet again.
On the other hand, that a people who brought reason to the world are being compared to sheep humpers is an outrage.
I just wish our so called leaders would learn to talk back to those creeps, by metioning a historical figure or two and a few of our modest contributions, like logic and democracy and the computer. Cow screwing indeed.
Part of the problem is our movement is hooked on pretty leaders who couldn't argue their way out of a paper bag.

I would argue that Matt Barber knows deep down that the comments are inappropriate. That's why he was so quick to get his two cents in about the "homosexual bloggers." His mind had a "ruh roh" moment and immediately went into spin mode.

Falwell Jr.! Too bad Hee Haw isn't on TV anymore, but there's always the 699 Club!
A prediction: One of these days we'll hear about little Matty Barber busted in a mens room, tappa tappa tappa. He will say he was practicing morse code.
