Audio: Maggie on culture wars, Catholics, and her own clean hands

by Jeremy Hooper

Two mildly interesting clips featuring Maggie Gallagher, both from a Catholic radio show out of South Florida.

#1: Maggie's very novel definition of the right wing-declared "culture war," one which positions her lifestyle choice to resist the fair and equal protection of LGBT lives as being nothing more than a defensive act:

Especially love the laugh at the part where she denies her role in turning people's marriages, families, and citizenship into an "issue." Because it's all fun and games until somebody loses a right. And Maggie can surely toss out a laugh, since she's under no real threat of that.


#2: Maggie bearing out what we always say, which is that the Catholic church leadership (to which NOM is undeniably tied) is the single largest force pushing against marriage equality in this country:

Bishop, bishop, bishop. Why are so many people in our movement so hellbent on the Mormon factor, yet keep giving blind eye to the Catholic mega-influence? Are post-loss protest marches really that fun to you? Because frankly, I don't care to ever again freeze my kisser off outside any faith HQ amid "tax this church!" chants. I'd much rather get ahead of it while we're still way before we're even in contention
