Mother knows best

Daniel Franzese’s Awesome Mom Has A Message For Antigay Haters On Facebook

With his scene-stealing work in Mean Girls and on Looking, Daniel Franzese has long been one of our favorite performers and as an ambassador for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, he’s also one of our most-admired do-gooders. Now we see he comes by his positive energy naturally. After reading and listening to some of the bile and vitriol being spewed all over social media by the right wing wackadoodles who were appalled that SCOTUS ruled for marriage equality (you know, like this lady), Daniel’s mom got upset and recorded a message for all the haters.  The lesson here is: Never cross an Italian mother.

Check out Mama Franzese’s video below.

    These are the kinds of Christians I love. Still regard religion as nonsense, but when you see good people taking this iron age nonsense and stripping it of its immorality, you have people who make the religion evolve along with them. You’re better despite your god, not because of it.

    Denise speaks a lot of truth but what she should have said about the finger pointing is that you point a finger at someone you have 10 pointing back to you! Be who you are, because who you are is beautiful. :)

    As always, I fall back onto my position :

    If God is Love?! Then true Christians spread a message of love, tolerance and inclusion.
    Those who spread the message of hate, intolerance and exclusion?
    Who are they speaking for?
    The dude downstairs? Think about it.
