Picking Losers

Maggie Gallagher Diversifies By Taking Up Conversion Therapy Cause

With the writing on the wall for opponents of marriage equality, what could possible be next? For Maggie Gallagher, co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage, it’s gay conversion therapy. Gallagher is flogging her support for a Jewish group locked in a legal battle over its promotion of reparative therapy. The group, Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH), has been named defendant in a consumer fraud lawsuit filed against it by the Southern Poverty Law Center. SPLC contends that JONAH sold a bill of goods to four young men and two of their parents to fix something that wasn’t broken.

Gallagher is chair of the Freedom of Conscience Defense, a legal group formed last year. In a column in the National Review Online, the right-wing zoo where the animals roam free, Gallagher complains that the lawyer representing JONAH, Chuck Limandri, is battling a “massive legal machine to defend the right of Jewish gay people to seek help.”

Because of NOM’s shrinking revenue, it’s not surprising that Gallagher is looking for new sources of income. The only question is why she picked a cause that is even a bigger loser than the one before.

    Will they be able to “convert” Gallagher into something similar to a human?
    Maybe grow a conscience for her in the lab?

  • GlitterKidder

    Why can’t this fat ugly [email protected] live in Zimmerman’s neighborhood?

  • tardis

    It’s pitiful that they don’t even see the destructive nature of their fight against humanity.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    You clearly need a new hobby, Mags.

  • DarkZephyr

    In this she is even going against Catholic policy which does NOT endorse reparative therapy.

  • jwrappaport

    That is one handsome woman.

  • Eiswirth

    “The only question is why she picked a cause that is even a bigger loser than the one before.”

    The answer is because people who think like her aren’t the brightest bulbs on the tree.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    As long as Mag’s can promulgate the lie, that being gay is a choice, she can still get traction out of her life’s endeavor. This is the reason they’ve taken up the reparative therapy commodity.

  • Harley

    I would say she looks like a big assed closet case but that’s an insult to big assed closet cases everywhere.

  • Jared MacBride

    Maggie needs to convert a few thousand calories into productive energy.

  • the other Greg

    I bet if she ever reads the book “Fat Is A Feminist Issue,” she’ll be running a lesbian “womyn’s center” within a year.

  • 2eo

    @the other Greg: I highly doubt this braindead gelatinous land whale can either read or run.

  • Cam

    I will type my usual questions for “Mags” any time she is mentioned.

    1. Maggie, you claim you are an advocate for good old fashioned “Traditional” marriage. Please explain then why you did not take your husbands last name and rarely if ever wear your wedding ring.

    2. Maggie, please explain why, if you are the poster gal for Traditional marriage you are never seen with your husband.

    3. Maggie….who is that man your husband travels with?

  • Cam


    Look, we know her hotness is a given…men AND women can feel the sexy vibe she’s giving off. Your denials of your attraction this this saucy minx to her are fooling nobody. ;)

  • Spike

    Exercise #5: When attempting to have sex with a fat ass like Maggie Gallagher, if you are having trouble finding where you should stick it, in order to find the wet spot, roll her in flour in first.

    It’s a good thing.

    Right now in NJ, we are waiting for our Gov. Christie to sign the bill that would ban gay conversion therapy. It passed through the state assembly and senate with overwhelming support! If Gov. Christie signs it into law, it will make NJ the second state to make it against the law to impose this horrid treatment on minors. About 5 months ago, a young NJ man started a petition on Change.org (137,000 signatures so far)to Christie demanding this ban. He has been to Trenton to testify many time in support. I love his quote;

    “I am an LGBT teen. I am not broken. I am not confused. I do NOT need to be fixed.”

  • Cam

    Two quick things…

    1. Awwwww, look what happens to your hair when gays won’t cut it for you.

    2. Look we ALL can look at Gallagher and know her story. Obviously a complete F-Hag who was in love with some gay guy and he of course didn’t respond to her. This whole thing is probably her dealing with her baggage.

  • 2eo

    @Cam: I’m sure she ate the baggage too.

  • yaoming

    @Cam: I was wondering about the hair. It looks like it was only half done when some bigotted remarks slipped out and her stylist quit… either that or that’s what happened in the past and now she has to try to cut it herself.

  • manxxxx

    She appears to me to be a very unhappy person. I can’t imagine a person being so sad that their “cause celebre” would be causing others to be sad. That being said, the new image of Jonah and the whale (pun intended) is equally amusing and disgusting.

  • ezywonder

    @MK Ultra: What is really gross to think about is this woman makes her money from hate. She LITERALLY eats hate. VOM

  • 1EqualityUSA

    She must eat a lot of hate.

    Cute comment….

    @Jared MacBride: Jared, thanks for the guffaw! :-D

  • crazycorgi

    It only takes one look at Maggie to know her story. She’s a fat girl who only got attention from the gay boys in school who she developed unhealthy feelings for, only to have those feelings spurned. Since then she has done all she can to get revenge on the gay community for those boys who refused to bang her because they were gay in spite of her persistance that they only need to try her out to know she was the right woman who could turn them. Of course she wants to believe that gay conversion works just to stroke her own ego. She doesn’t want to face the fact she’s just a ugly fat bitch none of the straight boys wanted, nor reconcile the fact that the gay men she stalked could ever want another man and not her ugly fat ass. It must hurt to be her, and to carry all that hate around. Maybe if she could get a straight guy to shag her she’d be a happier person.

    @DarkZephyr: Yes, ex-gay therapy IS a part of Roman Catholic policy and preaching.

    Their international ex-gay organization is called “Courage Apostolate” (http://couragerc.net/).

    Supreme Court Antonin Scalia’s son, Father Paul Scalia, is the Chairman of the Board.

    And I bet she eats lots of money too. Maybe 6 figures ???

    There is a market out there for ex-Gay, or ex-anything actually like weight loss and ex-smoking programs etc., and that market is prepared to spend their money.

    I worked with this fella whose father was a businessman. He made a comment onetime that kinda stuck with me over the years. He said, ” There’s money out there, get it. ”

    There’s a baloney factor about ex-Gay efforts but some unsure people don’t know that until they try it.

    One day when Gay folk realize how easy and better it is to except themselves, then this market will dry up and then the money supply will dry up and all this of this ex-Gay stuff will dry up also.

    Is her obesity a choice?

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Her hairdo is.
