Video: Minnesota for Marriage sticks with intellectually bankrupt victimization meme

by Jeremy Hooper

According to his past employer, Damian Goddard, the "ex-gay" supporter who thinks gays are "throwing away a gift that’s been given to you by God," was fired from his job as a Canadian sportscaster for various reasons beyond just his public stance against equality. Either way, it was an employment decision (in a country with different speech laws than the U.S.), not a government rebuke.

The O'Reillys of Vermont were fined because of state laws preventing discrimination against sexual orientation—something that would've been true regardless of whether Vermont had marriage equality. Public accommodations cannot wantonly discriminate. That's not a hard concept to grasp.

Catholic Charities in certain areas have made the *CHOICE* to close down their services rather than abide by state adoption requirements—a choice they made much to the dismay of many Catholics. That's on the Catholic leadership. If they want state breaks then they are going to have to play by state rules.


But forget truth, nuance, or fair practices of an America that is hetero-only. Kalley Yanta has anti-intellectual victimization to sell you:

So funny that they call this ad "not live and let live." Last time I checked, we LGBT folk were not the one trying to alter a state's most precious governing document so that it's language is a weapon that isolates, targets, and stigmatizes certain kinds of taxpayers. I mean, I'll check again, but I'm pretty sure they are the ones who are getting in the way of this whole peaceful coexistence thing.
