Something old, something new, something borrowed, something Beelzebubian

by Jeremy Hooper

This is how Maine's most prominent anti-gay group, The Maine Family Policy Council (formerly the Christian Civic League of Maine), presents the stakes in their "battle to repeal the state's newly granted marriage equality:

Picture 1-264
Weak or Strong - Timid or Bold [MFPC]

But of course they mean to compare gay people's love to Satan in the nicest, most loving way possible. Lest you be confused or anything.

No word if the Family Policy Council also wants Mainers to imitate Jesus' boldness in the face of satin. But considering how fully they wish to rip LGBT people from the fabric of America, they couldn't possibly pull this persecutory thread far enough to shock us.

*Oh, and before you write these folks off as fringe and disconnected from the larger movement, you should know that they are an official affiliate of Focus on the Family. In fact, that's the reason for the name change -- to better reflect the association.

Your thoughts

Hmmm, what was that Jesus said about false prophets?

They may also have been motivated to change their name after Michael Heath got heaps of bad press for using the group's website to seek out "tips, rumor, speculation or fact" about whether legislators were gay so he could expose them.

We should all change our names to Lucifer! Lucifer Mills... has a bit of a ring to it. And, it's certainly no more unconventional than Dick Mills.
