I Didn't Say It....

"Evangelist" Michael Brown, on this weekend's Charlotte Pride, where hundreds of red-shirted Christians gathered to scream insults and hatred at attendees:
"How many other community groups feature prominent performances by drag queens at their events? Can you imagine crowds at an Hispanic Pride event, or Black Pride event, or Asian Pride event -- just to name a few -- being entertained by men wearing dresses (or less), hot pink wigs, and matching knee-high boots? And this is part of the LGBT's strategy 'to promote acceptance'? How telling. And how telling that, unmentioned by the Observer, there was a large truck stationed next to the festival offering 'Free HIV Testing.' Yes, just another typical community event. It is also a bit disconcerting to watch young men greet each other with exclamations of 'Hey girl!' before exchanging pecks on the cheek. Does your average child find it confusing to hear men call each other 'girls'?"

I think if more festivals had drag queens, they'd be a helluva lot more fun.
And, Hey girl, there's nothing wrong with that, either.

Glenn Beck, on how Hurricane Irene was a warning to Americans that they start hoarding food in advance of the coming global economic collapse:
"This hurricane is a blessing. It is a blessing. It is God reminding you, as was the earthquake last week, it's God reminding you you're not in control."

Hey!
Chicken Little?
STFU.
Your fifteen minutes were up when Fox finally fired you.
From Florida public school teacher Jerry Buell's syllabus to his students:
"I am a man of God and I try to be like Jesus every day. I teach God's truth, I make very few compromises. If you believe you may have a problem with that, get your schedule changed, 'cause I ain't changing! I try to teach and lead my students as if Lake Co. Schools had hired Jesus Christ himself."

Hey Jerry, you delusional fuck.
Jesus wasn't judgmental.
He loved and accepted everyone.
You aren't Jesus, Jesus-like, or even Jesus-light.
You are something far more sinister.

Linda Harvey, of the hate group Mission America, on how gay people don't really exist:
"There’s one big fact that’s not backed up. There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human. One of the other things you’re gonna see as I mentioned is a big campaign GLSEN’s gonna roll out this year calling for 'respect,' respect! Not just for people, but for homosexual lifestyle. The PR campaign to hold up gay as a good thing: the lifestyle, not the person, because there are no such humans."

Linda. Dear, sweet, shy, stupid, ignorant Linda.
I was a gay child.
I was a gay teen.
I am a gay adult.
I was born that way and I'll die that way.
On the other hand, you were not born hateful. There are no hateful children.
Hate is taught. Hate is learned.
I was born gay, but you learned to hate.

Fred Karger, announcing his lawsuit against FoxNews for being excluded from its televised Iowa debates:
"I am the first openly gay major party candidate to ever run for President of the United States. I have experienced many doors slammed in my face by individuals and outside political organizations during the past eighteen months, but this blatant affront by Fox News executives smacks of discrimination and I hope the Commission will investigate post-haste...When I am denied a place on the debate stage after qualifying, I will take action against the party responsible. Rupert Murdoch and his Fox News should have allowed me on that stage in Ames Iowa last week. Now I am asking the Federal Election Commission to investigate Fox changed it's rules to keep me out."

If the debates are for candidates to share their ideas and ideals, then why deny the one gay candidate a spot on the dais?
Oh.
Gay.
Fair and balanced my ass.


Michele Bachmann, recreating history again:
"What people recognize is that there's a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward. And especially with this very bad debt ceiling bill, what we have done is given a favor to President Obama and the first thing he'll whack is five hundred billion out of the military defense at a time when we're fighting three wars. People recognize that."

No, honey, what people recognize is that you are a dangerously, delusional, ill-informed, uneducated, religious, wingnut.
That's all.

Michele Bachmann, speaking to "evangelical and Tea Party voters" on God sending hurricanes and earthquakes to Washington:
"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."

Just when I think we have reached the depths of her ignorance, Bachmann opens the door to another subterranean level of idiocy.
God sent hurricanes to DC because he's pissed at every politician except  Bachmann.
Honey, I think God was hoping you'd be in DC when the hurricane hit.
Sidenote, asshat: Since Dc was relatively spared, and the Northeast received the brunt of the storm, and storm damages, how do you explain that?
::::crickets:::::
Thought so.

Wingnut Senator Tom Coburn on Barack Obama:
"He's a very bright man. But think about his life. And think about what he was exposed to and what he saw in America. He's only relating what his experience in life was ... His intent isn't to destroy. It's to create dependency because it worked so well for him. I don't say that critically. Look at people for what they are. Don't assume ulterior motives. I don't think he doesn't love our country. I think he does... As an African American male, coming through the progress of everything he experienced, he got tremendous benefit through a lot of these programs. So he believes in them. I just don't believe they work overall and in the long run they don't help our country. But he doesn't know that because his life experience is something different. So it's very important not to get mad at the man. And I understand, his philosophy -- there's nothing wrong with his philosophy other than it's goofy and wrong [laughter] -- but that doesn't make him a bad"

So, Obama is the result of Social programs?
If so, then social programs work, eh?
Or, maybe Barack Obama is the result of his own intelligence, perseverance and drive, while Tom Coburn is a bigot without a sheet.


Rick "Frothy Mix" Santorum, playing that same old record on the sanctity of marriage:
"Letting the family break down and in fact encouraging it and inciting more breakdown through this whole redefinition of marriage debate, and not supporting strong nuclear families and not supporting and standing up for the dignity of human life. Those lead to a society that’s broken. [snip] And you can’t say that we’re gonna take morality out of the public square, morality out of our schools, God out of our schools, and then expect people to behave decently in a country that requires, capitalism requires some strong modicum of moral consciousness if it’s gonna be successful."

Hey Ricky?
Instead of just spouting the usual hateful rhetoric, spell it out for me, cuz I'm just a big dumb queer.
How, Ricky, how? How would my being able to marry Carlos redefine marriage?
And how would it hurt any other marriage int he world?
one day, Ricky, you'll have to explain, and you won't have an answer. All you'll have is hate and bigotry and ignorance.


Brian Brown, completely abandoning the pretense that NOM is a secular organization:
"You and I have always fought together under the banner of truth. Together, truth and love will prevail, as Maggie says. Not Truth without the love of God and our neighbor in our hearts. Nor a Love which is afraid to speak truth for fear of being labeled a bigot or a hater by those who wield scorn and hatred as a weapon to suppress the truth and those who speak it. They win by making us afraid to speak and to act for marriage in the public square. They can only win if they can get us to accept and internalize the second-class status they propose for us. To accept our own marginalization, to be quiet, to stand down and keep our heads down. To live in fear, instead of acting, with courage, out of hope. They do not know us. They do not know the One whom we know."
 
I just adore how he spins the notion that gays are evil, that gays are sinful, that gays are the doom and gloom of the world, and yet pretends top be speaking of love.
God wouldn't like that Brian, and when she grows tired of you, which I think is coming soon, you'll see what god really is all bout.
Love. For everyone.
Because if the "One" you know is filled with hate, then you can have her.

I always wonder if these folks turned their considerable energies towards helping the elderly, the poor or kids in need how much they could be accomplished.

I love your recap posts! Your responses to the ignorance of the previous week ALWAYS make me smile in agreement. You consistently hit the stupid nails right on their stupid heads! Please keep up the great work!

PS - You'd put Judge Judy to shame! ;)
