Maggie Gallagher: Freedom fighter

by Jeremy Hooper

Mags-GallagherHow does the National Organization For Marriage's Maggie Gallagher, a career anti-gay, see herself? Well, she thinks that her work resembles that of legendary human rights activist, freedom fighter, measured thinker, and Rent lyric...




...Vaclav Havel, natch. This from the Dallas Morning News:

Rod Dreher: Maggie, you and I are on the same side of the gay marriage issue, but I am pessimistic about our chances for success. You, however, are optimistic. What am I missing?

Maggie Gallagher: Vlaclav Havel mostly. "Truth and love wlll prevail over lies and hate." On that basis Havel took on the Soviet empire. Where is that invincible empire now?

Same-sex marriage is founded on a lie about human nature: 'there is no difference between same-sex and opposite sex unions and you are a bigot if you disagree'
.

Go ahead. Compare for yourself:


Like mirror images of each other, huh?

There are SO MANY more delusions of grandeur in the full interview. Head over to The Dallas Morning News to check it out in its foolish full form:

Can we find the guy who broke Anne Coulter's jaw and sic him on Maggie? I've had enough of her for a while.

John, Calling Maggie a swine is an uncalled for insult to swine everywhere!

Under Vaclav Havel's presidency, I understand, Czech civil partnerships were actually legalized. Beautiful irony!
