“Fags Die, God Laughs.” Such were the placards held by protestors from the Old Paths church in Indiana when they marched in fatuous and hateful protest recently, burning a rainbow flag in front of a gay-owned business in Bloomington. The depth and severity of anti-gay prejudice in America makes clear why gay people should not settle for the wishy-washy half-commitment to our rights exhibited by a politician like Michael Bloomberg.
The protestors brought along children singing hymns, as if inculcating faith-based hatred in young people were psychologically sound. The leader of the appropriately-named Old Paths church group, John Lewis said: “The elite city of Bloomington harbors an elitist, faggot business called The Inner Chef which openly and unabashedly claim they are against god almighty.” Again, wishy-washy half-commitments to our rights are not good enough, Mr. Bloomberg.
In case John Lewis is reading this now, please know sir, that Queerty is not against god almighty. We actually had a chat with him last night and he gave us some excellent fashion pointers. So thanks to god, today we have a beautiful new pair of Ferragamo loafers.
