Duck Dynasty personality Phil Robertson reveals anti-gay animus in GQ interview

Duck Dynasty personality Phil Robertson

Duck Dynasty personality (and Tea Party hero)  Phil Robertson has shares his anti-gay animus with GQ Magazine in an interview that includes this statement:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Bryan Fischer, of the anti-gay hate group American Family Association, is absolutely giddy over Robertson’s statements:

This would be the same Bryan Fischer who has called for gay people to be criminalized, rounded up, and treated like drug addicts – and that’s just the beginning of his attacks on the LGBT community).

In a press statement, GLAAD says that Robertson’s “statement is far outside of the mainstream understanding of LGBT people.”

“In Louisiana, which passed a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality, 56% of the population support some sort of legal recognition, marriage or civil unions, for gay and lesbian couples according to Public Policy Polling released in August 2013.”

Kinsey Sicks sing “Dreaming of a White Santa” in response to Megyn Kelly

America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet* responds to FOX News’ Megyn Kelly and Santa’s race.

Based on “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin – Parody by Ben Schatz

I’m dreaming of a white Santa
Like Megyn Kelly seems to know
While FOX News is dissin’
A made-up war on Christians
To boost ratings on their shows

I’m dreaming of a white Santa
With dark-skinned elves kept out of sight
May your news be skewed to the right
And may Santas like FOX anchors all be white!

Young homophobe banned from Youtube for hate speech

For years, young Caiden Cowger has been posting homophobic rants on Youtube.

I would post one here for you as an example EXCEPT the little hater has now been banned from Youtube. The mini-Limbaugh posted the news on his “Cowger Nation” website today.

“We’d like to inform you that due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines (http://www.youtube.com/t/community_guidelines) your YouTube account CaidenCowgerShow has been suspended. After review we determined that activity in your account violated our Community Guidelines, which state that hate speech is not acceptable on our site. “Hate speech” means content that promotes hatred or violence against members of a protected group (race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). Please be aware that you are prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other YouTube accounts. For more information about account terminations and how our Community Guidelines are enforced, please visit our Help Center at https://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?answer=92486&hl=en-US.”

The headline of his post today was “Youtube Bans Cowger For Life!”

Quite the drama queen, isn’t he? And he writes in the third person?

Cowger goes on to say that he never “spoke words of hatred toward a group of people. I spoke against their behavior. On that channel, I simply just voiced my opinions opposing liberalism, including the homosexual lifestyle.” So, clearly he has a loose handle on language skills because what he was spreading on his now-defunct Youtube channel was clearly hate speech.

By the way, how’s that for an ego – Cowger Nation???

SRSLY.

Michigan: RNC member says gays want free healthcare because AIDS

Dave Agema

While speaking against marriage equality, Republican National Committee member Dave Agema said that gays want free healthcare benefits because they are dying of AIDS.

“Folks, they (gay people) want free medical because they’re dying (when they’re) between 30 and 44 years old,” he said. “To me, it’s a moral issue. It’s a Biblical issue. Traditional marriage is where it should be and it’s in our platform. Those in our party who oppose traditional marriage are wrong,” said Agema.

Equality Michigan has called on Republican leadership to denounce Agema’s remarks and is seeking his removal as a committeemember of the Republican Party. The organization is also encouraging the healthcare community to correct Agema’s remarks, saying they perpetuate a harmful stigma about people living with HIV.

“It is unconscionable that in 2013 a political figure in a prominent position would feel so comfortable spewing lies about real people in a pathetic attempt to deny fundamental rights to families in Michigan,” said Emily Dievendorf, Managing Director of Equality Michigan.

Earlier this year, Agema came under fire from members of his own party after he posted an excerpt on Facebook from an article titled “Everyone Should Know These Statistics On Homosexuals.”

Among the claims in the article by Dr. Frank Joseph is that gay people “account for half the murders in large cities” and that “part of the homosexual agenda is to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle.”

Oklahoma: Gov. Fallin announces NO married couples may apply for military benefits at National Guard facilities

Graphic via Memeographs

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) announced earlier this month that state-owned National Guard facilities will no longer allow any married couples to apply for spousal benefits, regardless of whether they are same-sex or opposite-sex.

The Supreme Court’s decision overturning the Defense of Marriage Act means that servicemembers with same-sex spouses are now eligible for federal benefits.

Fallin’s unusual tactic is designed to avoid having to recognize those couples, which she asserts would violate Oklahoma’s constitutional amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman:

FALLIN: Oklahoma law is clear. The state of Oklahoma does not recognize same-sex marriages, nor does it confer marriage benefits to same-sex couples. The decision reached today allows the National Guard to obey Oklahoma law without violating federal rules or policies. It protects the integrity of our state constitution and sends a message to the federal government that they cannot simply ignore our laws or the will of the people.

Although Oklahoma owns most of the state National Guard facilities, they were built almost entirely with Federal funds. AND the federal government provides about 90 percent of the budget for the Oklahoma Military Department, which includes the National Guard.

I would say the Federal guidelines would be in play here.

By making this decision, Gov. Fallin forces all married couples to travel much farther than they should to obtain the appropriate ID card for military benefits.

Mind you – this is all about merely ACCEPTING an application at a National Guard facility. The state-wide policy has been changed and will inconvenience hundreds of married couples, gay and straight, just so Oklahoma can say “we don’t respect same-sex marriages.”

Sad, sad, sad…
