'Pro-family' goes 'pro-Facebook'; unfortunately, their status is still intolerant

by Jeremy Hooper

It's been fascinating to watch the "pro-family" movement struggle to "hip" themselves up in this new Obama world. And perhaps the most humorous attempt we've seen comes courtesy of Campaign For Children and Families' Randy Thomasson, who has taken off the tie, signed up for a Twitter account, and put together slickly edited videos to sell his discriminatory product:

Only problem for Randy "clerks who have to marry gay couples are kinda like Nazi officers who were once forced to gas the jews" Thomasson? He's still pushing the same old regressive bias. He, on the extreme end of California's anti-gay movement, is still working towards a day when LGBT people have no public support. He's still writing off gay-headed households as "sexually-confused and sexually-charged environments." He's still hurting decent human beings who simply want a fair shake at this whole life game. So in short: He's still completely out-of-touch with the direction that America is (thankfully) heading.

In Hollywood, there is an old edict that says "you can't polish a turd." On a similar note, we just want to remind the "pro-family" movement: "You all can't polish discriminatory rhetoric and actions that are so inherently tarnished."

Your thoughts

My favorite thing about l thse sites -AFA, Aftah, etc - is that NONE OF THEM allow comments on their "articles". They refuse healthy debate about their opinions, and it's so obvious why. The arguments against their stance are so overwhelming, they wouldn't have a chance. Innocent bystanders who happen across their sites would see the opposition to these articles and viewpoints and realize what a crock of sh*t they're putting out there.

Hope he posts this news: "
(Washington) The Obama administration will endorse a U.N. declaration calling for the worldwide decriminalization of homosexuality that then-President George W. Bush had refused to sign, The Associated Press has learned.The move was made after an interagency review of the Bush administration’s position on the nonbinding document, which was signed by all 27 European Union members as well as Japan, Australia, Mexico and three dozen other countries, the officials said.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because Congress was still being notified of the decision. They said the administration had decided to sign the declaration to demonstrate that the United States supports human rights for all.

“The United States is an outspoken defender of human rights and critic of human rights abuses around the world,” said one official.

That include California, I certainly hope.

You can't polish a turd - LOL!

My dad put it a little nicer: you may have changed your name, but your breath still smells the same.

It may be true that you "can't polish a turd", but I do seem to recall that "Myth Busters" did manage to put a shine on one several episodes ago. But what is much more true is that they don't need to slather on much pretty-face, and happy-talk to please most of their minions most of the time. Those people are quite happy with anything that props up their farcically preconceived prejudices.

That is one white site. I thought so from the front page when there was the lily white Thomasson, lily white little boy, and lily white woman with baby.

But then I went a level deeper, into the "Best of Action Photos" section.http://savecalifornia.com/best-of-action-album.html

Third row, fourth column is of Luis Galdamez, one of their supporters. The caption? "Spanish Speaker Luis Galdamez Has Been A Strong Voice United With Savecalifornia.com To Address Key Issues"

SEE? WE'LL EVEN USE THE SPANISH SPEAKERS! What in the world was the point of including that?
