Audio: Carrie moves further right, further wrong

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 50-1- Yet another comparison to Queen Esther

- Matt Barber saying that 70% of Americans are opposed to marriage equality, even though a new CBS/NY Times poll shows 42% in SUPPORT of the concept (with another 25% in support of civil unions)

- Matt Staver making a stink about pink flowers that were placed in front of him (because thems be lady things, ya know)

Picture 48-1- Mat Staver once again using the blatant, disgusting, and easily refutable the sexual orientation/paraphilia lie, suggesting that LGBT-inclusive hate crimes laws protect pedophiles.

- Matt Barber flat-out saying that Carrie has been the "victim of a hate crime." Yes, really. yes, on the same day that Rep. Foxx besmirched Matthew Shepard, someone who lost his life, not a f***ing crown!

- Mat Staver misrepping twin studies, acting as if there's no possible way that one twin could be gay and one heterosexual if any in-born factors were in play

-The constant way Carrie so smugly and assuredly presents her stance as the only one that's "of God."

- Carrie shaking her head in agreement to most everything Matt Barber says (Including the really messed up stuff about "ex-gays" and the "uncompromising human biology that supposedly negates homosexuality)

- Carrie seeming to think that saying she doesn't hate anyone (which we do genuinely believe) negates all of of her bad positions. She, like many "pro-family" people, doesn't seem to realize that being aggressively wrong and desirous of using personal faith views to limit others' civil freedoms is quite enough to earn one public scrutiny. Especially from those who suffer because of it.

Ya know, it's tough to pick the most annoying/frustrating moment from today's "Liberty Live" interview with Carrie Prejean. So here, just listen to the whole thing:

Your thoughts

The religious right isn't going to let this issue die, are they? Probably because this girl is all they got to able to vilify same-sex marriage. (sigh) I don't know what else to say about this other than this girl is getting annoying very fast.

Where is the sister that happens to support gay rights? I haven't even heard anything from her yet.

Those flowers were probably red to begin with, but faded to pink from sheer embarrassment. They'll probably be black in a couple of hours as the unholy vacuous essence sucks all of the remaining life from the putrefied husks. They'll shatter into dust by morning. Mark my words!

So she just started in the whole "gay activist" thing and she only supports civil unions. (sigh) Whatever, I appreciate the fact that they are tolerant of gay people but I disagree with both of them on what marriage is and will just keep fighting for gay marriage. I just hope that these girls will soon realize that separate is not equal.

Thanks Jeremy.

Sam,
Separate but equal is a cliche. And civil unions would be only the first step.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. 42% + 25% = 67%, also known as a thumping majority. But let's not be strategic or practical about this. Let's keep shooting ourselves in the foot, feeling self righteous, and complaining that the Universe At Large doesn't bow down and deliver bouquet tossing on a silver platter.

Wilberforce,

I know we have the majority to get civil unions and I'm all for using it as a first step towards marriage equality. But with the religious right shouting the idea of constitutional amendment to "protect" marriage, I feel that the gay community should fight for whatever they can get as long as it leads to marriage equality. If the federal government wants to bestow civil unions with all the rights and privileges of marriage on us, I'll take it. I just know that people will realize that having a separate system for gay and lesbian community is just plain silly and will ultimately lead to marriage equality.
