The Advocate: Ad in El Paso Times: Gays Are Putrid

American Independent: Maryland anti-marriage-equality advocates continue with claim marriage is not a civil right


  1. In Canada, that El Paso ad would be considered hate speech and would not be permitted to be published. I think we know who's putrid, and it's not gays.

  2. What the religious right is doing in Africa is terrifying. They'd love to have a "kill the gays" law here in the U.S.

  3. The anti-gays keep regurgitating the same, tired arguments. They can't help it; they don't have facts on their side.

  4. On the Maryland article, this jumps off the page for me:

    " Racism is about keeping the races apart, and that is always wrong. Segregation was a serious, serious social problem. The fact that marriage exists exclusively between men and women, folks, is not a social problem; it is a deep, deep social good."

    It might as well end with, "Why? Because I say so, that's why."

  5. Professor Chaos -- I believe it! The prospect is alarming.

    Buffy -- Fortunately, more people are seeing through the old, tired arguments of the homophobes.

    Nance -- That seems to be the foundation of most fundamentalist arguments. :D
