We agree that the shooting at the Family Research Council was tragic and not the answer. While we were gathering details about the shooting, National Organization for Marriage within hours was using the shooting to paint the LGBT community as responsible and use it to their advantage. NOM even pointed fingers at the Southern Poverty Law Center over its classification of the FRC as a legitimate hate group – calling on it to drop that classification. NOM’s supporters, well-fed on Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, starting posting ridiculously homophobic comments, some that were removed by Facebook. The recurring theme – ‘homosexuals are perverts’ and that their ‘attempts at marriage are futile.’ In the end, their comments are painting an even grimmer picture of the National Organization for Marriage who in recent weeks has become so desperate – supporting Chick-Fil-A (when they insist on companies remaining neutral on the marriage issue – yet insist its supporters boycott Starbucks and General Foods). Now they want their sister organization, Family Research Council to not be considered a hate group. Yet, FRC has equated the LGBT community with ‘perverts’ and ‘pedophiles.’ And surprisingly (sarcasm), NOM supporters are echoing that same sentiment that got FRC classified as a hate group.
Homosexuality isn’t illegal. But this NOM supporter thinks so.
Rick McCarrell insists the “ss” (Same-Sex supporters) are the ones to blame. Yet, if you remember, Rick McCarrell participated in a 4-hour rant about homosexuality and anal sex. You can read it here.
Lexi Hastings, a resident NOM supporter, has equated the LGBT community to the Taliban. She has also thumbed up homophobic comments that basically state gays are solely responsible for AIDS and spread the disease on purpose. Recently, she attacked a gay couple by stating her daughter’s marriage, which she just attended, was real and theirs was not. (see below)
Anne Miller has a theory on gay suicides – the ones bullying aren’t to blame! How ridiculous. She insists that being gay is the cause of one’s suicide – not the people, her people and NOM. This blog documents many homophobic/bullying comments. A couple of years ago, one supporter even championed herself as encouraging gay people to commit suicide. You can read about that here. Kristin Small adds that “EVERYONE of those children were sexually abused at some point in their lives.” Wow. Just wow.
Funny how the KKK was brought up. There was a NOM supporter a few months back cutting and pasting from a white supremacist site. You can read it here.
More propaganda regarding the LGBT community as ‘perverts’ and ‘pedophiles.’ To make her homophobic banter seem like “scholarly discussion,” Anne Miller posts a link. Where are they finding this stuff?! Why are they that concerned with gay peoples’ lives?
