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.
