“Ken Mehlman will have to work for 5 lifetimes to atone for even half of the harm he’s personally engineered on the gay community. Don’t forget that it was HIS idea to push for all those anti-gay constitutional amendments. He was the one who came up with Phrases like “Anti-Family” and “Death Style.” He was the one who showed Republicans that the easiest way to getting votes was to spurn homophobic witch hunts.

It’s his personal fault that thousands of children sit parentless in orphanages because of his anti-gay adoption bills that he got on ballots where the race was close.

And let’s not even start with the countless gay teenagers who’ve killed themselves because of his legacy of hate.

Yes, he’s come slithering to us now that he’s persona non grata in Washington. Kick him into the on-coming traffic… we don’t need his kind… and we all know that the SECOND that it suits him, he’ll stab us all in the back. Look for his “Ex-Gay Conversion” in about 3 years. Because we all know that he’ll make a few more million dollars when he does that… and he’s shown that when it comes to making money, there is no depth to which he won’t dig.”

Hvil i fred vores ven.”
