This is what they sound like before Schubert Flint reins them in

by Jeremy Hooper

Considering the sometime rancorous nature of YouTube, nobody familiar with the site is likely to be shocked by this comment:

But what is we told you that these nutty words, which posit marriage equality as being "sexist", use terms like "sexual dis-oriention" [sic], and present this whole thing as a big LOL, came from an official statewide organization? Would that seem more out of line than if it came from a random teenager?

Well, here's your chance to decide:

Yes, that's right: This comment (which was left on this video) came from the official YouTube for ProtectMarriageNJ.com, the newly launched site that the anti-gays at the New Jersey Family Policy Council have been touting in emails to supporters. And it's not just a name coincidence -- if you go to ProtectMarriageNJ.com, you will see that this is the YouTube account that they list as their official one! Someone from the Garden State's organized opposition is responsible for these thoughts.

So it seems like our New Jersey opposition is isn't even going to bother putting on the "nice" mask. They are going to paint us as sexist, dis-orientated, and unevolved, and then laugh about it. Fair enough, that's there right. In many ways we respect it much more than the usual fakery. But we will damn well make sure that New Jersey residents are aware of the rancor that they are putting forth. And we will tell anyone who will listen about the kind of disrespect that will be likely emboldened under certain anti-equality administrations.

I've decided that when it comes to GLBT issues, this formula applies:

(Anti-Gay Perspective) + (Internet Comments) = (Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation and Capitalization Errors)

Or its corollary:

(The Greater the Percentage of Gay Antipathy) = (The Higher the Percentage of Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation and Capitalization Errors)

It's always one or both.

"does not pass the test of evolution"

Funny, considering anti-equality folks are generally creationists. Seems like they only "acknowledge" science when it looks convenient to them.

According to Christopher, Jeremy is anti-gay!

"Fair enough, that's there [sic] right."
