AFA's Bryan Fischer: Diversity is 'most sinister and dangerous lie'

by Jeremy Hooper

Bryan Fischer has a new enemy. This time it's the very idea that our world is a salad rather than a beige mush:

Perhaps the most sinister and dangerous lie the left has beaten into the brains of unthinking Americans is that there is strength in diversity. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Diversity, as the first syllable in the word implies, divides. It does not unify. It fractures, debilitates, and diffuses. Energy that could be harnessed through unity of purpose and values is frittered away.


KEEP READING: Diversity Cripples [American Family Association]

It's unclear if Bryan prefers the term theocracy, dictatorship, or totalitarianism to describe his vision of America.

Michael Sam's teammate offers perfect response to silly shower 'story'

by Jeremy Hooper

Over the past few days, ESPN and other outlets have reported that openly gay St. Louis Rams player Michael Sam is spending his time at training camp self-segregating his showering habits so that he doesn't make his teammates uncomfortable. Teammate Chris Long offers the perfect response to the ridiculous angle:

ESPN has apologized for the report. They say they will instead focus on whether his uniform is more well-coordinated than his teammates, if he's redecorated the locker room in order to better its flow of design, or how many times in a practice his hips swish while he runs.

Photo: Negligent NOM posts baby with choking hazard; will someone please think of the children?

by Jeremy Hooper

As a parent of an infant, my eyes are like laser beams in constant hunt of objects that might pose a choking hazard to my little peanut. But while I know that anything small enough to pass through a toilet paper roll is a potential danger, apparently NOM is not concerned enough about infants' growth and development to keep potential dangers out of the vulnerable baby's hands. This graphic is like a warning poster from a pediatrician's office:

Should baby wake, that hand is going right to that mouth. When hand meets mouth, those rings become food. That "food" becomes lodged. It's a tragedy waiting to happen.

All credible organizations know and advise better. Must you flout the advice of all professional associations, NOM? How many lives must you endanger in the name of discrimination?

Not to mention—aren't those both men's rings?

Audio: #7thCircuit considers whether marital discrimination is as ugly as other forms (hint: it is)

by Jeremy Hooper

Via Freedom to Marry comes the oral arguments from today's Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals hearing. There were two cases, one out of Indiana and one out of Wisconsin, and the three judges' questioning (at a court known to be somewhat conservative) seemed to indicate good things ahead for the right side of history.

First up is audio from the Indiana case (Baskin v. Bogan):

And here is the sound from the Wisconsin leg (Wolf v. Walker):

Freedom to Marry's full writeup is here.

'Are you now or have you ever been a gay rights supporter?'

by Jeremy Hooper

Apparently believing it's an earlier era much more palatable to his anti-gay activism, longtime voice of hostility Peter LaBarbera is going full-on McCarthy, hoping to root out politicians who he can then flog for simply supporting the reality of certain Americans and their basic rights as tax-paying human beings:

I actually agree that people should be forthright about their support for basic human rights, as that is a noble cause and a public good. But of course Peter isn't wanting folks to come forward so he can applaud their humane stances. Peter still believes there is mileage left in his efforts to turn this whole acceptance thing around to his favor. He still thinks that supporting equality, which is quickly becoming the boon that it should have always been, is a liability that he can exploit for his and his aligned party's political gain.

Best of luck with this Lavender Scare, Pete.

With marriage fight lost, Maggie Gallagher (Srivatav) moves to more neighborly writing

by Jeremy Hooper

With the discriminatory cause that defined her professional life now all but settled (by her own admission), longtime anti-equality activist Maggie Gallagher Srivastav has found a new creative outlet. The National Organization For Marriage cofounder has joined the staff of her local community's newsletter, where she writes profiles of her Alexandria, VA, neighbors as well as a monthly real estate report:

No word if Maggie's political life ever spills over into this forum. Though I do here she recently raged against a homeowner who tried to put a Daisy and an Iris in the same flower bed, insisting that every household must include only one mum at a time.
