Mike Heath pushes colleagues to be *more* anti-gay; very well might be on our side's payroll

by Jeremy Hooper

In a new commentary where he concludes that marriage equality for same-sex couples is "the final swing of the scythe which cuts an already blighted society to the ground," Michael Heath—the fifteen year leader of the Christian Civic League of Maine and current head of the one of the PACs challenging same-sex marriage in the state—continues to in-fight with the more pragmatic coalition that forced him out of his role back in 2009 upon realizing that he, a longtime friend and ally, could prove to be a liability at the polls. The time, Mike is encouraging his "Protect Marriage Maine" peeps to speak out against gay normalcy:

The heat is increasing for those opposed to the normalization of homosexuality. Fewer and fewer people are willing to speak out against a movement which has the power to silence its opponents.

Many leaders of the pro-family movement carefully avoid any discussion of the morality of homosexuality. Instead they prefer subtle sociological, psychological and legal arguments in support of traditional marriage. They do so not because these arguments are effective, but because they fear being called haters.

Their unwillingness to confront the homosexual rights movement gives the final measure of credibility to the canard that “opposition to sodomy is bigotry.”

Posing a threat to free speech? [Bangor Daily News]

I think it is HYSTERICAL that Heath accuses us of "silencing." If I could put this man on TV every single night, I would gladly do so. Hell, I would offer this man his own cable channel in Maine, where he could show the citizenry what truly fueled that state's anti-equality movement for the better part of two decades! I can't say for sure that a man who titles his website "Gay Marriage House of Horrors" would destroy his own movement the way I think he would, but I do like my odds!
