Did This Rally Sign Calling For the Execution of Gays Ruin It For NOM’s Less Extremist Backers?

THE SHOT — A National Organization for Marriage supporter at the group’s Indianapolis rally shows off what happens when Bible quotes meet Clipart.

But what happens when not even NOM organizers try pushing the fundamentalists to the sidelines? Sad!

      Least he’s consistent in his beliefs.

      Funny how that quote is so often cited against homosexuality yet most of them would never say they support execution for gays.

      What’s the bible matter when you will just cherry-pick the parts that support your prejudice, NOM?

      I pray to the Gay gods that miserable hatefull,vile, old scumbag has a massive stroke today……….As pointed out above these vile scumbags cherry pick certain passages from that book of not so fairy tales but they conviently seem to ignore the passages directing them to kill their wife if they discover she is not a virgin on their wedding night. Or that if their children talk back to them they should immediataly be put to death.

      Once again the Gays are the only accepted group where others can openly cast hate and destrction upon with impunity. Imagine the firestrom which that old scumbag would have caused if he showed up at somewhere else with a noose urging the lynching of African Americans????

      This is pretty cool. What the Old Testament of Dumb-ass actually says about a lot of stupid things.

      =================================

      “Your wife defending your life in a fight by grabbing your attacker’s genitals. No joke. Deuteronomy actually devotes two verses to this exact scenario: Deuteronomy 25:11-12.”

      “If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity.”

      ========================

      From “11 Things The Bible Bans, But You Do Anyway”

      “At least the fucker is honest” really?

      Well then, how does an “honest” so-called Christian reconcile what Moses wrote in Leviticus (the sign “fucker” is holding) and the Commandment “Thou shalt not kill”? How does “honest” reconcile the words of Jesus the overrule the Judah laws?

      It is complete dishonesty to pick and choose to support one’s bigotry over another. It is also dishonest to combine one’s bigotry under patriotism (note the sign “honest” is holding in the beginning of the video, all in its red, white and blue adornments) when one violates the essential funding principle of America’s Declaration that all are endowed to exercise the right of pursuit of happiness.

      There is nothing honest about this bigot.

      he’s one big closeted gay! he says he’s been confused and had been attracted to men and he rejected it! thats so funny!

      i usually dont like to assume that someone is gay just bc theyre vocal against gay people, but more and more of the anti-gays prove to be gay themselves… what happened to this world? jk.

      Honest or not, I wish Maggie & Co would make execution of gays a regular talking point, and insist on the necessity of it every time they’re in front of a camera. It’d make things so much easier!

      This guy’s been protesting all over Cincy/Indianapolis with just this one sign for years. I have plenty pictures of him and his sign from last year’s PRIDE in Indy. Looks like he was in good company on this particular day with the NOM rally.

      As usual..the guy that wrote this is a closeted gay man. He admitted to having same sex attractions..but of course..no longer does. These guys are the WORST!!! Their own self hatred is boiling over. Some people dealing with internal homophobia commit suicide or drink themselves to death. These people project their own self hatred onto other gay people who are out and happy. Very sad..

      Hmm . . . it’s all quite clear to me now — the reason so many fundamentalists think that sexual orientation is a choice . . . .

      As Kinsey discovered, sexual orientation varies in a population from exclusively gay at one end, and exclusively heterosexual at the other, with everybody else bisexual to a greater or lesser degree in between. Well, if most people are bisexual, then most of them will have been aware of their feelings for “forbidden” inclinations.
      People tend to think that most people are like themselves, and if these fundamentalist bisexuals assume that if they can repress their forbidden desires, then they would probably assume that other people can do the same.

      That would explain a lot . . .

      I hope they keep it up! This is doing more for us than any sort of lawsuit will EVER do. We need to pull out all the stops to show that the NOM freaks are just as bad as Westboro Baptist. The true moderates are the ones who disagree with gay marriage but stay out of it because they acknowledge it’s none of their business.

      Thank you religious nuts!

      How many of you caught the first :30 of this clip, the part where TWO NOM organizers came over to caution the man, before he was put on record, to keep his comments civil?

      Forget the rest of the interview. This is the part NOM doesn’t want you to notice… they’re trying VERY hard to moderate their followers… so they can’t be accused of bigotry.

      I wish the interviewer would have asked this man some really inflammatory questions… like if he believed gays should be put to death, etc., etc.

      No. 5 · Forget the Umbrella-It’s Raining Men! wrote, “This is pretty cool. What the Old Testament of Dumb-ass actually says about a lot of stupid things.”

      One thing the Christians forget is that Leviticus was merely a description of the religious practices and taboos of Jewish tribes (it says as much in the very last sentence of Leviticus). It was apparently written at the end of the Babylonian exile, when returning priests were allowed by the emperor of Persia, Cyrus, to rebuild their temple, but Cyrus demanded a report of what they intended to do – religious customs, restrictions, etc., which is what Leviticus is. A lot of the rules were probably intended to reverse the process of assimilation that occurred as Jews who were not exiled started to adopt the customs of their neighbors, in addition to making sure everyone knew that the returning priests were in charge.

      You may have missed the point of your Biblical quote, “If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity.”

      Obviously ancient Israeli women were kind of feisty and the men, who controlled things, didn’t like having their balls squeezed while in the middle of a fight. So, they made a rule to keep these feisty ladies in line. They wouldn’t have put that rule in if that sort of thing hadn’t been going on.

      No. 8 · wannabegay2 wrote, “he’s one big closeted gay!” … not really. He came across of being more of a Kinsey 2 – some same-sex attraction but not so strong that he could not suppress it fairly easily. His same-sex attraction could be low enough that he could confuse it with a “choice”, not realizing that the apparent choice is due merely to being less than a 3 (completely bisexual) on the Kinsey scale. If he were a Kinsey 6 with those attitudes, he’d have a f___ buddy on the side.

      Regarding No. 4, where PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS says, “I pray to the Gay gods that miserable hatefull,vile, old scumbag has a massive stroke today” … Calm down. He sounds more like just another idiot – someone who accepts what he’s told from some self-proclaimed “authority” because he’s incapable of a critical analysis on his own. He’s doing what he thinks is right and helpful, and doesn’t realize that he is simply deluded. Save the opprobrium for someone who is purposely manipulating stupid people like him to further some hate campaign.

      I’d put him in the same class as the group I once saw at an anti-war protest – some vegans or animal-rights people with signs that said, “Peace begins with what’s on your plate.” There are lots of idiots out there and all it takes to find them is to beat the bushes hard enough.
