A big honking mess of homo-hostility

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 4-242The following protest account comes from TFP, that militant Catholic group that's been traveling around the northeast, standing on various street corners for the sole purpose of demeaning gay people:

"People love to honk their horn for marriage. It's like they feel liberated from all the homosexual propaganda being forced on them," said Norman Fulkerson, TFP leader with the group campaigning in upstate New York.

Fulkerson continued: "The opposition is forced to hear the barrage of honking horns. Their insults and cursing get drowned out in the noise of the honks."

Even pedestrians join the honking by simulating the movement of pressing a car's horn and making a loud honk sound.

It's kind of like the way the schoolkids used to try to get the big rigs to honk by doing that arm motion thingie. Except, of course, with thrills that are much cheaper and campaigns that are much more childish than any fun-loving kindergardener would ever seek out.

But you all keep getting your kicks out of noise pollution, TFP. We gays will reserve our horniness for the spouses with whom we'll all inevitably have the freedom to share hot wedding night relations.

Your thoughts

HAHAHA! I love your commentary on this. What homosexual propaganda are they talking about anyway? Nothing is being "forced" on them, only lack of rights that are being forced on gay Americans...

This gave me a good laugh. I mean, what exactly are they trying to accomplish? Is anyone going to be convinced to oppose marriage equality because someone else honked at a sign?

I wonder how many of those horny motorists were African Americans, and how many of them know that Traditional Family and Property most likely includes slavery.

When we had the Prop. 8 campaign in California, I would feel exhilerated and empowered by all the honks we would get when we protested against it. Even in conservative areas, the positive responses far outweighed the negative.

Let's put aside the fact that these anti-gay activists are exaggerating and take them at their word. I'm rather sure that if pro-equality protesters stood on a corner in these same towns with signs supporting marriage equality, they would get as many or more honks and thumbs up as the militant anti-gay activists.

Can remember,
Changing their minds from
the paint on a sign?"
