They comment, we opportunistically highlight the extremism

by Jeremy Hooper

This small sampling of comments come from the American Family Association's One News Now site, with the subject being Vermont's increasingly likely passage of marriage equality legislation:



Comment source: VT Senate approves homosexual 'marriage' bill [ONN]

Allowing comments: The Achilles heel that will eventually destroy the anti-gay community's "we're the good, loving, moral ones" argument.  No wonder so few of them choose to do so.

Oh, and anonymous foe #3: We, the "nuts," have always been in New England, leading the country with all of our "nutty" ideas about fairness and human dignity.  You will be missed, should you choose to eschew Montpelier.  But please don't kid yourself into believing that Vermont is is out-of-touch with its traditions, or that fair-minded locals are out-of-step with New England values!

Your thoughts

Marriage as a 'blood covenant'? These are the people protecting... what?

Jeremy, as you know, I'm from Vermont and proud of it - I actually would be very pleased if those people did NOT visit our great State of Vermont. God surely must love Vermont and its people otherwise why would he give us the greenest state and the most beautiful scenery. He also has many "houses" here and none of them have fallen down yet due to Civil Unions and upcoming Equal Marriage.

I consider being called nuts a high compliment. That said, the grammatical and syntactical goofs in this comment jibe with emails I've gotten from Maggie Gallagher of NOM.

Okay! So we have "ruined" America, and according to them, "We seen" what god did to Sodom and Gomorrah (presumably with their own eyes, in some spacial/temporal transportation trance).

So, since the evidence is irrefutably true, and it is obvious that the nut-jobs truly believe that it is true, then: just like Lot and his family, it sounds like it is time for them to get the hell out of Dodge (America / Gomorrah).

Being the considerate, helpful and supportive sort that I am, I would again like to suggest Gambia to them! Beautiful little country where they can thrive, in theological harmony with their likeminded brethren. Hell, I'll even help coordinate the chartering of the flotilla of (at least somewhat) seaworthy vessels necessary to get them off on their way!
