Sometimes you just have to say it: SOME PEOPLE TRULY WANT US GONE!

by Jeremy Hooper

6A00D8341C503453Ef0120A52A8865970B-1In his latest e-blast, NOM's Brian Brown says the following about the "victories" that his side has "achieved," and the reason why they should keep loathing thy queer neighbor in the coming years:

Thank you. This is a victory for all the ordinary, extraordinary people who refused to be bamboozled, intimidated or discouraged out of common sense, and who summoned the decency to speak the truth in love to power--and won!
...
"Be not afraid." That's the most often repeated commandment in Holy Scriptures. A movement founded on a lie about human nature will fail. It takes just a few men and women of courage and vision to stand up for God's truth against all the powers that counsel defeat, despair or indifference.

So let's see here:

Unordinary.
Bamboozlers.
Intimidators.
Discouragers.
Lacking in common sense.
Indecent.
Untruthful.
Irreligious.
A movement fostering a lie about human nature.
Destined to fail.
UnGodly.

In just two short paragraphs, Brian Brown manages to make all of these claims about LGBT people and their principled push for decent treatment. And not just LGBT people, actually, but any and everyone who supports the same. He hasn't just positioned this broad coalition as anti-"traditional marriage." In fact, his words would be seen as outrageous by many people who don't support full marriage equality (for whatever short-sighted reason) but do support LGBT people. He is thoroughly defaming the very idea that LGBT people are part of this world's normalcy. And most egregious of all : He is doing so under the auspices of "loving" Christianity.

But hey, he's just a "nice guy." Right, Washington Post?

Closet Cases say the darndest things!

Yeah, because that's how "[b]e not afraid" contextually appeared in the fucking Bible. As a judicial reference to civic benefits and responsibilities that occupy decidedly bureaucratic state operation.

Asshats.

And what a lovely Christian douche he is.

And as is the case with the email blasts from all the loving Christian 'Phobes for Jesus groups, they stroke the believers already entrenched hatred and then pass the collection plate. Classic ....

Replace every "same-sex" "gay" and "homosexual" in that letter with "Jew" and then tell us how seriously anyone would take this crazy bastard.

The kind trreatment hate based Straigth Supremists get in the main stream press (Washington Post) is what allows this sick twisted reality to continue.

It will be so long after we are gone.
Just re-watch the original Planet of The Apes.

The VAST majority of Humans are monsterous apes = and take this man seriously because his words make them feel superior to others - and that is what the majority of humans want to be.

White Supremacy
Straight Supremacy
Christianism
Islamism
Financial Elitism
Fashion

all tools to keep others down

He also said that we are POWERFUL and at the same time LOSERS in the same sentence.
