Sprigg says we're obsessed with homo-sex; we wonder if he made claim into a mirror

by Jeremy Hooper

Peter-SpriggSomeone please help the Family Research Council's Peter "I'd prefer to export homosexuals" Sprigg remove the up from his tight:

It seems that homosexual activist groups can’t even raise money without using sexual innuendo.

I happen to be on the email list for “Equality Maryland,” the state homosexual activist organization (it’s always good to know what the opposition is doing). They are planning to raise money with a “Jazz Brunch and Silent Auction” on Sunday, October 18 in Baltimore.

But I was startled by the poor taste (and the poor proofreading) of the subject line for an email invitation to this event that I received on September 28. It read: “Care to engage is [sic] some ‘Four Play’?” (The gimmick was that you would get a discount when purchasing four tickets.)

I wondered if they would be embarrassed or get any negative reaction—but apparently not. On October 7, I received a follow-up email with this subject line: “Forget ‘Four Play’ . . . how about a ‘Threesome’?” Offering a discount for the purchase of only three tickets this time, the message came complete with a publicity photo from the old “Three’s Company” TV show.

When homosexuals promote their political agenda in the public square, they argue that it’s not about sex. It’s about love, families, equality, justice, etc., etc. They don’t want people thinking about two men or two women having sex. (This is why they prefer the term “gay” rather than “homosexual.”)

But when talking to each other, the agenda becomes more clear.

It’s about sex.
Fighting for “Equality”—Or Obsessed with Sex? [FRC Blog]

Okay, first off: What is at all unsavory about "fourplay"? Hopefully all loving couples engage in a little bit of pre-bang affection, as to just dive right in is uncouth. We would think that even the evangelicals could get behind benign wordplay that uses nothing more than pre-coital smooching as its launch point. Maybe if it were "fourgy," we'd expect a little more eyebrow-raising. But "fourplay" is almost chaste.

As for "threesome": Well why the hell does that have to mean sex?! The last time we checked Webster's, sex isn't even mentioned in the definition of that word:

Threesome [Merriam-Webster]

And if we remember "Three's Company" correctly (and you can bet your Regal beagle that we do), Jack-Janet-Chrissy(or later Cindy/Terri) never had the sex. So there is absolutely no reason to assume that Equality Maryland was sex-charged when it used a "Three's Company" pic and the word "threesome." The only impetus they really needed was the desire to say something a little more interesting than "please buy three tickets."

In fact, it would seem to be Peter Sprigg that has sex on the brain here. Which is perfectly fine. And normal. And healthy.

What's not fine, normal, and healthy? His bizarre obsession with trying to make us look evil, simply because we too enjoy orgasms.

Your thoughts

Let's hope Mr. Sprigg doesn't golf; foursomes are the standard party size.

Actually, I think this one was pretty unprofessional on the part of Equality Maryland. From a strategic standpoint they should not have left themselves open to this kind of attack. But it also cheapens the movement to make sexual innuendos like that in a professional setting. Are we in high school?

And it's a stretch to argue they didn't mean to make sexual innuendos...they put them in quotes.

Fourplay, while I have never seen them in person, I hear they are actually a really brilliant Jazz group. I suspect that the word that he really is panting about, though, is foreplay. And, the technical definition for foreplay, includes any activity that precedes an event.. not just sexual events. Of course, what this really proves is that Sprigg, more correctly, IS the one who only has SEX at the FORE in his brain. Which is probably why he also added this parenthetical clarifier:

I happen to be on the email list for “Equality Maryland,” the state homosexual activist organization (it’s always good to know what the opposition is doing).

The old, "I'm just here doing 'research'" line.

Kind of like the age old, "(I read Playboy for the articles)" line that is meant to "prove" that the Spricks of the world are too chaste to indiscriminately wack off to naked pictures of twenty-something models. I wonder what else is on Sprigg's bathroom stall reading list??

But, I do have to say, that I do truly read Playboy for the articles... even if it is only to read Anna Marie Cox.

Also couldn't fourplay and threesome be a triple entendre to include musical notation? It IS a Jazz concert after all, last I checked Jazz is music (wow cosmic, they just mentioned Jazz on Jeopardy).

These folks have no sense of humour when it comes to sex. That's why they are so bad at it.
