Think about it, dude.
National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown, opining about the “second-class status” proponents of LGBTQ rights are conferring upon Christians.
You seriously think Christians are an oppressed minority? I’m sick of this shit.
I can’t even… You’re not, okay? You’re not.
No one has launched a war on Christmas. No one is proposing your churches be forced to marry same-sex couples. No one is suggesting Christians be second-class citizens. If you’ll notice, your operatives are allowed to testify before state legislatures on how horrible same-sex marriage will be, even though you possess no scientific evidence and distort the facts about the LGBTQ community in such a way that it’s purely hateful.
LGBTQ Americans are the ones who are being treated as second-class citizens. Not you. In fact, folks like you have a history of oppressing those who don’t agree with you or are different, but always out of ‘love’ and concern-trolling for their eternal souls. Mr. Brown and his NOM cronies have a twisted view of love.
I can’t even…
The largest LGBT advocacy group in Iowa has already collected more than 1,000 signatures demanding an apology from Bob Vander Plaats, head of the conservative Christian organization The Family Leader, only 24 hours after launching the petition.
ThinkProgress released video Tuesday of Vander Plaats erupting in laughter and saying, “That’s pretty good,” after someone makes the joke: “You know what my wife says? She says: Iowa, the state where you can’t smoke a fag, but you can marry one.”
His organization created the controversial marriage pledge, which was signed by Republican presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum.
The petition calls on Vander Plaats to apologize for his “hurtful and derogatory language.”
"The bullying tactics of Bob Vander Plaats and the Family Leader have gone too far," said Troy Price, One Iowa Executive Director. "The overwhelming response we have seen shows just how Vander Plaats’ actions have hurt loving, committed couples and their families across the state. This type of language has no place in the conversation about marriage. Bob Vander Plaats must apologize to the thousands of Iowans he has offended with his actions."
You know what to do, folks. Here’s the link to the petition.

A self-styled “Christian patriot,” [Rev. Grant] Storms led a small West Bank congregation called The Reformer Church and for 10 years hosted “The Reformer Radio Show” on WSHO. Storms has railed against the Roman Catholic church, calling it “satanic” and “demonic.”
He is especially known for arming followers with bullhorns, Bibles and picket signs to protest Southern Decadence, the three-day gay festival held in the French Quarter during Labor Day weekend.
Imagine the hypocrisy of a man who criticizes gay people and engages in masturbation whilst watching little children playing. Total shocker.

Egypt’s majority Muslim population stuck to its word Thursday night. What had been a promise of solidarity to the weary Coptic community, was honoured, when thousands of Muslims showed up at Coptic Christmas eve mass services in churches around the country and at candle light vigils held outside.
From the well-known to the unknown, Muslims had offered their bodies as “human shields” for last night’s mass, making a pledge to collectively fight the threat of Islamic militants and towards an Egypt free from sectarian strife.
“We either live together, or we die together,” was the sloganeering genius of Mohamed El-Sawy, a Muslim arts tycoon whose cultural centre distributed flyers at churches in Cairo Thursday night, and who has been credited with first floating the “human shield” idea.
A beautiful showing of solidarity indeed, and a horrible reminder that violence in the name of a deity makes it a reality.
