TVC says we're shaming the Founding Fathers; Reincarnated Founding Fathers too confounded by reality TV to care

by Jeremy Hooper

Okay first off: We actually had a vote to spare in the New York Senate. We needed 32, we got 33. So no, it did not come down to only one legislator.

Now that this practical point is out of the way, you're free to go read the reliably offensive way the Traditional Values Coalition (a longtime SPLC-designated hate group) is positioning the New York vote as one that "encourages a culture" of "enslaving oneself to sexual depravity":

TVC...
In New York, the fate of millions hung on the tongue of one man as well.

We have no idea what promises were made, what was offered and what was taken. What we do know is that, when voices are silent, there are no boundaries to those who would use the power of government to enforce standards entirely alien to our own.

This one legislator doubled the size and scope of the homosexual movement, a movement committed not to enslaving one's person, but enslaving oneself to sexual depravity that only encourages a culture of the same for future generations of Americans.

Marriage is not for government to define. Marriage is a covenant with God.

Unless we as Americans protect this covenant from the reach and avarice of activists desperate to turn our world upside down, we may very well pass on a government our Founding Fathers would be ashamed to have inspired.

New York’s Gay Turn [TVC]

Credit where it's due: "Avarice" is a good word. Clearly TVC shares our love for the thesaurus, if not our love (syn: deep affection, fondness, tenderness, warmth, intimacy, attachment, endearment; devotion, adoration, doting, idolization, worship; passion, ardor, desire, lust, yearning, infatuation, besottedness) for homosexual relations.

But TVC, you really need to quit telling anyone who will listen that we gay folk are seeking to turn the world upside down. Such enslavement to silliness might be good for filling the fear machine. Though when it comes to actually strengthening our "traditional values," these hyperbolic exercises are about as productive as enslaving oneself to civil discrimination.
