Maggie Gallagher: Stop Treating Us Like the KKK!


Carrie Prejan continues to be a newspeg! Filling in for Larry King, The View‘s Joy Behar welcomed former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, former Miss California Rev. Nicole Lamarche (who counters Prejean’s statement that the Bible condones her position), crazy person Steven Baldwin (who, thankfully, was limited only to a few lines of dialogue including, “when two of the same sex lie down together, that is sin”), and National Organization for Marriage chief Maggie Gallagher.

Of course, she had the most brilliant soundbites: “I don’t blame gay people for [the attacks on traditional marriage advocates]. No way do they want this movement to be acting. But we do have a gay marriage movement right now that if you disagree with them they tend to treat you like you are the Ku Klux Klan or something.”

Now that’s just unfair. It’s not like we’re lynching your ilk, Maggie.

      I don’t take Stephen Baldwin seriously, so he can say whatever he wants. Is it just me but doesn’t Maggie Gallagher remind anyone of Roseanne Barr ?

      Now come on.

      Maggie we’re not calling you the Klan but your ilk going out assaulting and murdering homosexuals enough to have a term for it “gay bashing” makes you seem Klan-esque.

      Gee I dunno, Ms. Gallagher, traditionalists and conservatives preach some pretty nast and negative flat earth stuff – gays are sick and disordered, law and state and church need to shove gays around so that the rest of us are protected from vaguely terrifying doomsday possibilities, elected representatives like the Mormon legislator in Utah say that gays are more of a threat to civilization and world peace than Al Quaida, pundits on the right are always saying that kids are in danger if gay folks are allowed to get on with life (pretty much as if they were straight folks, woohoo, that’s a real dangerous one, isn’t it?). So, if you wanna stop being perceived as extreme trash talkers who urge flat earth belief systems on us, all to somehow protect from those very gay folks who are our brothers, sisters, friends, or coworkers; maybe you should pause the trash talk and the flat earth preachments, and get some message that is true to your traditionalistic conscience without bearing false witness against gay neighbors? You know, just a thought in passing.

      “GOD WROTE THE BIBLE…” That is news to me. I was taught in catholic school that god was the inspiration of the bible, but we all know that MEN wrote the bible. What a dummy.

      Dear Maggie et al.,

      You’re free to disagree with me and who I am, so am I free to disagree with who you are. Even if that includes likening you to the Klan.

      You say we’ll burn in hell, I say you’ll burn in hell. See you there?

      It’s kind of hard to boycott stephen baldwin when he doesn’t have a career to boycott.

      And maggie galagher shouldn’t be wearing a hood; a bag, but not a hood. That’s the headwear of the antigay…considering the vast majority of them are so goddamn ugly.

      Is Stephen Baldwin joking? He’s joking, yes? People can’t be that serious saying such asinine crap. I hope Alec beat him as a child.

      And O. M. G. Can we get someone to set-up this asshole Gallagher in some horrible tax evasion sting? GOD DAMN. Why is this virgin so intent on marriage, pushing the “mom and dad,” “traditional marriage” bullshit when she obviously does not understand why anyone would love another; I doubt she’s had a date since she took her dog to prom.

      baldwin looks so cute all nekkid in some movie in bed with a woman and a man with the mans hand on his nekkid behind! can’t remember the name of the movie but it really sucked, and not in a good way.

      baldins career has been reduced to really, really horrible movies on the sci fi channel. the only reason they could be hiring him is the name baldwin and the fact he is cheap to hire.

      Maggie Gallagher is the exact opposite of Roseanne Barr. Roseanne is talented, funny, loves the gays and is a pleasure to watch on television.

      I think Maggie wasn’t being as outrageous as in past interviews. This indicates perhaps her past tactics haven’t been working? Me oh my, could the gays be winning?

      Rick-the movie you’re thinking of is “Threesome”, with Josh Charles and Lara Flynn Boyle. It came out in 1994-I saw it in the theatre 3 times. (And yes, he did look good nekkid.) Back then, Stephen was extremely gay-friendly. I don’t know WTF happened to him. It’s kinda depressing.
      Andy-I thought the Baldwins were Irish-Catholics. You’d think he’d KNOW that stuff.
      Is it possible he suffered a major head injury recently? He certainly ACTS like he has.

      The armchair psychologist in me thinks that Stephen Baldwin is a fundie wingnut because he’s rebelling against his family. Alec is clearly the golden boy of that family and he’s liberal. So Stephen is the classic black sheep who decides to become the opposite. If I can’t be the best, I’ll be the worst.

      I keep thinking back to that time when Alec threatened to leave the country if Bush got elected and he didn’t. People teased him about it endlessly. But then Stephen threatened to leave the country if Obama got elected and he didn’t and is now getting teased about that. It’s like Stephen is obsessed with his older brother and keeps following in his footsteps…but changing the game a little so he doesn’t give Alec the satisfaction or something.

      When did Stephen Baldwin become a theologian? I guess I missed that.

      @DeAnimator: I think when he got sober he became a born again christian. Plus he is an actor who is not in demand much anymore so he is getting press riding Carrie Prejean’ coattails which may help his career.

      CNN surely loses major integrity points by having now forever known as Stephen “God wrote the bible” Baldwin on their Larry King show.

      from wiki:

      On January 26, 2005, Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post uncovered records of Gallagher receiving payments of tens of thousands of dollars from the Department of Health and Human Services from 2002-03 for helping the George W. Bush administration promote the President’s “healthy marriage” initiative. During this time, Gallagher testified before Congress in favor of “healthy marriage” programs, but never disclosed the payments.

      She looks like the demon spawn of Lucifer and Carnie Wilson! (Poor Carnie, don’t mean to hate on her, but I’m just sayin’…)

      And Stephen Baldwin lost whatever Baldwin hotness he had a looong time ago…When Shanna Moekler is the voice of reason and compassion, you know you’re dealing with some serious douchebags here.

      “God wrote the Bible.” Well, it could be worse: somewhere online the other day (I don’t remember where) someone’s reason for opposing gay marriage was that “Adam and Eve created the world.”

      I met a guy on Friday at a gay club that was both a Baptist, and one of the populous that does not believe in gay marriage. He is the gayest thing I’ve seen at the bar in a while. He was getting drunk, looking to get laid, and a giggly little kid, but when it came to religion he became the most angry, staunch bitch – impossible to talk to.

      one thing that always bothers me about strong religious people is their need to make themselves the biggest victim while simultaneously squashing and suppressing others. ALL strong christians are the same and this is a common, common cycle that MG is displaying. it’s the only thing christians are consistent in…. from the head os NOM to a random bar queen.

      Wow. What a sanctimonious, stupid, mean twat. I can’t believe somebody actually married that angry, corpulent wad.

      I’m *glad* to see people like Fat Mags out in public and on the teevee, showing everybody their ugly, ignorant, hateful reactions to this affirmation of rights of gay Americans. You see, they’re losing this fight for good, and they know it. That’s why they’re shrill. But the shriller they get, the more everybody will be motivated to *actively reject* these assholes.
