Vote For Marriage NC courts the 'all gay men need diapers' vote

by Jeremy Hooper

Patrick Wooden is most known for this:

So of course Vote For Marriage North Carolina, the campaign trying to put an anti-equality amendment in the state's constitution under the pretense of merely "protecting marriage," are reaching out to this very same man:

I say "of course," because this is always the case with state campaigns. Even though the carefully managed campaign heads go on the air and pretend to be about love and compassion and defense, and certainly not in any way personally targeted towards gay residents themselves, we always -- ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS! -- see them making connections with local extremists. It happens in every single state.

Our burden? Making sure these alliances become known! In North Carolina, we've already heard the truly beyond the pale rantings of Ron Baity, a man who could not be more personally connected to this Vote For Marriage NC effort. Now we see ties to a man who claims gays' "wicked behavior" leads to a life of diapers and/or butt plugs. We must make sure as many people as possible know what's being said.

Patrick Wooden says in the above video that he wants the "truth" to get out. So let's do it.
