Hey Mainers: Do you think your gay neighbors are abnormal?

by Jeremy Hooper

200907311026-1The Stand 4 Marriage Maine crew can use as many stock photos of smiling families as they want. And they can say that their so-called "People's Veto" is all about "protecting traditional marriage" until they're blue in the face. Because their fellows at the Christian Civic League of Maine/Maine Family Policy Council will continue to reveal the anti-equality movement's true agenda:

"Our victory will be won when society no longer views homosexuality as normal, and same-sex marriage as desirable. To this end we must have true grit and unwavering persistence and fortitude."
League Congratulates Maine on a Successful Petition Drive [Whatever Mike Heath is calling his org. these days]

That's right: Their ultimate goal is to have gay people seen as no less than abnormal. It's not about "protecting" anything. It's not about the word "marriage." It's not about any of the other bullcrappy-laden lines that they will feed to voters over the next few months. The upcoming referendum is ultimately a vote on whether or not Mainers think that their LGBT neighbors are worthy of their normal place within society's spectrum. The Maine Family Policy Council (which has ties to Family Research Council and Focus on the Family) just came right out and said it!

They might just make this one really easy for us!

Your thoughts

Of course. It all comes down to what I call the 'ick' factor. They cannot fathom who two men or two women can have sex without it being 'dirty'.

What it really boils down to, and this one kills me is that when a man is the receptive partner to another man, he is debasing himself and acting as a woman.

In essence it's a perverted version of misogyny.

Well yea, Tony, we know they think it. Now it's time for them to come out and say it.

I applaud CCL of Maine, in a way, for writing the above. We should force the anti-equality side to use "WE WANT GAYS TO BE SEEN AS ABNORMAL!" as their tag line!

The laws within the united states are not biblical, get over it. As for you Tony P, in Ancient times plenty of men had homosexual relations with other men, it was a rather common occurrence. As for your reference to misogyny, would you rather that men openly beat women, rape them or worse murder? Also to point out, a man acting a woman would not even come close to misogyny. Misogyny is hatred of women. I suggest you brush up on your diction.

Uhm, "UR An Idiot": I think you are very confused. You are commenting on a pro-gay post on a pro-gay site. Tony P is standing up for gays!

Why do gay people deny that they're abnormal when it's self-evident that they are? We're all abnormal in one way or another, get over it.

The basic reason that we have a sex drive to start with is to encourage sexual relations with adult human beings of the opposite gender (not with with little kids, or goats, or the same gender).

Enjoy your opposite sex-tuned sex drive, Bongo. I and millions of others will live as we were created.

Go ahead, just don't insist that anyone who calls it abnormal is somehow "unenlightened." It's demonstratably abnormal and if you want to talk to kids about it you should not be calling it "normal." Even kids know better than that.

Bongo: I will not make any assumptions about the people on an individual level. But the view itself certainly is an unenlightened one.

And don't project on kids. The kids in my family, having grown up with gay uncles (among other LGBT relatives) since day one, would find your view to be the abnormal outlook.

Out of my own interest, Bongo: What role do you perform at BC&BS?
