For Loving Heterosexual Marriage So Much, How Come Maggie Gallagher Keeps Hiding Her Husband?

Awesome person Fred Karger, of Californians Against Hate, wrote NOM chief Maggie Gallagher an open letter, which is a reasonable thing to do, since NOM has been subpoenaing Karger over stupid crap to make his life hell, in an attempt to shut down his criticism, which isn’t working. Among the questions Karger asks Gallagher: For being so pro-marriage, are you even married?

“No one has ever seen your husband,” writers Karger. “You attend countless marriage events, chock full of married couples, celebrating marriage, yet you always, always show up alone. I had the displeasure of attending your recent presentation at the CATO Institute in Washington, DC. I was amazed to see that you don’t wear a wedding ring. No rings on any fingers. Where is your alleged husband? Why no ring?”

Great questions! So far, no great answers!

It was in August that Maggie’s husband even arrived on our radar. Or rather, his absence did. Because at Rhode Island’s “Celebrate Marriage & Family Day,” Maggie took the mic to address the crowd, and pointed out how her husband of 17 years couldn’t be there. But it appears, her husband can’t be anywhere. We’ve never seen him, and trust, we’ve looked.

His name is Raman Srivastav, and among the Internet rumors about him is the one claiming he’s “a tournament bridge player who spends as much time as possible traveling away from home to play with his male partner.” Heh.

You spew all your vile poo about “preserving marriage” and you work your fat lard filled ass off trying to prevent loving couples from getting married……. You hyprotical miserable, vile, hateful, reprehensive crunt………

  • MDThom

    Terrwill, I could have not said it better.

  • dvlaries

    Hey, if you had drunkenly once said “I do” to this creature, back in your stupid, heedless youth, wouldn’t you now want to put as much distance between she and you as possible…? I hope bridge is kinder to you, Raman, than the luck you’ve drawn with heterosexuality.

    SHE’S GAY GAY GAY !!!!

  • prissysissry

    Raman Srivastav – Indian name. Interesting!

  • Cam

    That would make PERFECT sense. Because no normal person who is straight is THAT interested in constantly paying attention to gay marriage. BUT, if she was a jilted bitter woman who’s husband was playing around on her with a man…well then her acting out in this way would make sense. So typical, i’d said to a friend that she comes off like a bitter fag hag who’s gay guy ditched her when he got a boyfriend, but having a gay hubby makes even more sense! HA HA HA HA HA!!!

  • terrwill

    I hear her Gay husband wants nothing to do with her because Maggot has a tiny cock…… : p

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

    He can’t get around easily, since Maggie cut his feet off with an axe.

  • SugNight

    Maggie IS her own husband….just look at those shoulders and twenty inch neck. Hot.

  • stevenelliot

    This bitch cares about banning gay marriage because she’s profitting at a tune of 250,000k a year (on the books, not to mention whats under the table)

    Also I thought she ate her husband with some fava beans and a bottle of chianti………………Maggie Lector, Silence of the Cows

  • Kalt Werden

    It’s actually interesting that this lady is against marriage equality.
    Many times she has quoted the bible, but has forgotten that her marriage,if she’s truly married, was banned and illegal just a few decades ago in many countries and states.
    She has also forgotten that you can make the case in the bible that God did not want people to marry beyond their race. If her husband is of Indian descent, this poor woman is going straight to hell,according to her beliefs.

    Queerty: Please label ALL Maggie Gallagher photos as NSFW, or at least NSF Breakfastime or Lunch time! Thank you in advance.

    Ms Gallagher’s obsession with the gays is intriguing. I’ll chime in on the side of those that believe it stems from a bad relationship with a gay man. I sure can’t imagine any other reason, perhaps other than the money.

    If she’s so Pro-Marriage then ought she not have a model Christian marriage???

    Do the name Anita Bryant ring any bells?

    Seems that she had a gay husband too.

    Sour grapes?

    Hey, check out http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/v225/526/125/q100000321039844_8585.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.facebook.com/people/Raman-Srivastav/1486782900&usg=__i9YFKcYiOX9J_OpHRMBCz7qmGt4=&h=50&w=50&sz=3&hl=en&start=3&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=5Ej4wt1lnpdeeM:&tbnh=50&tbnw=50&prev=/images%3Fq%3D%2522Raman%2BSrivastav%2522%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26hs%3DX6S%26rls%3Dcom.ubuntu:en-US:unofficial%26tbs%3Disch:1 for what Google claims is a picture of Raman Srivastav. Maggie must have been married in Massachusetts as this picture sure looks like one for a woman!

    OK, its the first one I found using Google’s image search, and no doubt the wrong one, but it was quite a surprise that what came up was not the picture of a man!

    While Mags bloviates against against same-sex marriage, her own marriage is nontraditional: her husband is Hindu. I’m sure that’s why we don’t see him out. She appeals to people who don’t tolerate religious diversity, and yet her own family is as religiously diverse as they come. In her own words,

    “I’ve been exposed to a lot of different prayers, what with a New Age mom, nonreligious siblings, my own Catholic faith, a Buddhist sister-in-law, and a whole pack of Hindu relations (including my husband). I can’t imagine taking offense because they pray to God in their own way, not mine.”

    The hypocrisy isn’t quite as obvious as a gay politician opposing same-sex marriage, but it’s pretty bad.

    No. 15 · Dan wrote, “The hypocrisy isn’t quite as obvious as a gay politician opposing same-sex marriage, but it’s pretty bad.”

    In the town I live in, a Catholic marrying a Hindu wouldn’t be noteworthy. Aside from that, why is it hypocritical a priori for a gay politician to oppose same-sex marriage? It would only be hypocritical of he went off to Canada to get married and then got a vaguely worded exception passed that would apply to his case and almost no one else’s. A gay politician who opposes same-sex marriage because he really believes that marriages should only be between a man and a woman may be an oddball, may be a bit daft, and may be someone you wouldn’t vote for, but the term “hypocrite” is the wrong word to use in some cases.

    Most homohobes who are so obsessed with bashing gays are repressed gay or lesbian themselves. Any straight person who is comfortable in their own skin couldn’t care less. It’s the loudest, obsessed homophobes who are so obviously repressing and defending against their own self hatred and internalized homophobia. Sad.

  • Lukas P.

    @Tony: Not quite. Homophobes are not neccessarily gay. Religious fervor plays a huge role, the desire to keep marriage “holy and as god intended,” as well as a bad experience with a gay person–ex-husband, uncle, son, girlfriend sister. A guy who let another guy play with his peen when he was a teen may not be gay or bi but so riddled with guilt he crusades against the gays.
    I’m not discounting the super-closeted gays but think there are many homophobes who have other reasons.

  • blackball

    She probably fell in love with her a former gay best friend a few years ago who broke her heart when he said NO. Something weird and gay happened to her and she can’t move on.

  • Drake

    Look at Maggie’s bio in Wikipedia. interesting info. I was shocked to learn that she is a Yalie. More interesting is that she has had one or more kids out of wedlock !!!!????? Also, her husband is eastern european of some sort – a russian or slavic name.

  • Robert, NYC

    That sad, ugly sow had an email exchange with me several weeks ago. She dismisses that part of her life when she had premarital sex which produced a child. I’d love to find the guy who impregnated her. I bet he would say she was an easy lay, maybe a raving nymphomaniac. I also asked her that if a child of hers were gay, would she be comfortable seeing him or her grow up to face discrimination and inequality? Her response: SILENCE. She refused to answer the question, so we all know what her answer would have been. That’s how sick she is!

  • Robert, NYC

    I Googled “Raman Srivastav”. No result but….Raman Srivastava came up who is from India, no mention of any connection to Gallagher though. Now I’m beginning to wonder if she’s really married.

    Drake, No. 22….being a Yalie doesn’t mean a thing. Look at Bush, an average C student at Yale and Harvard. By the way, during Gallagher’s email exchange with me, you wouldn’t believe the number of grammatical and spelling errors in her writing, absolutely appalling. To think this dumbass heads a hate organization.
