Coalition for Marriage (supported by a number of UK MP’s) allows homophobic & misogynistic hatred, death threats, bans any dissenting opinion

In January of this year, one of our UK writers published a blog post that highlighted a sizeable number of Members of Parliament (MPs) who had, according to the official website, pledged their support for the Coalition for Marriage (C4M) UK, which is basically an offshoot organisation which bases it’s principle on those of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). This post appeared to pass by largely unnoticed, especially as the attempt to contact the relevant MP’s via Twitter led to a temporary suspension of the account (basically because when you forward a link to a number of addresses, Twitter marks you as a spammer), and it kind of all paled in to insignificance.

Until recently, that is. Coalition for Marriage was brought to our attention again by one of our long-time followers who had been the target of some quite frankly disgusting comments and threats. Kate Lee, who is a born-again Christian, a Chaplain and a Street Pastor with a church not only tolerant but open and accepting to LGBT peoples and couples, screencapped the abuse over a period in January, and kindly granted us access to them all. This was in response to highly flammable religious rhetoric, in an attempt to reassure LGBT people that not all Christians think of them in such an inflammatory manner, as well as C4M’s stance on Thursday 21 March 2013, where they banned dissenters and fence-sitters, while allowing death threats, slurs and vile abuse to remain. This collection is far in excess of the screencaps the writers here had time or patience to collect, and for that, we heartily thank her.

The co-writer who first came across this notification on Facebook was also the one who had written the initial post on C4m, and is also the one writing this post. This time, I’m serious. about what I’m planning to do.

Below is a list of all the MP’s who subscribe their support, as of 28 March 2013, to C4M. They have all been notified, by email, the exact content C4M chooses to allow on their page. We are also categorically stating that all of the people listed below stand by the soon-to-follow comments in their roles as Members of Parliament for their respective constituencies, until we hear differently. We are also in the process of contacting relevant local and national press about their support of homophobic death threats. This will allow their LGBT constituents to pose their own questions to said MP’s in time. That list in full:

MP List 1

MP List 2

The above listed people support homophobic comments and death threats, as well as misogynistic slurs and abuse, as well as religious intolerance made by C4M and their supporters.

The following is a selection of abusive posts levelled at Kate and others, starting with death threats and expressing their wish that Kate and other would die. There’s more after.

Threat 1 Threat 2 Threat 3 Threat 4 Threat 5 Threat 6 Threat 7 Threat 8 Threat 9 Threat 10 Threat 11 Threat 12 Threat 13 Threat 14 Threat 15 Threat 16

Did you get the gist of these posts, MPs? This is what the followers of the organisation you have lent your names to want. They want to attack, beat up, torture and even murder gay people simply because you are being gay. I’m sure your LGBT constituents will be very proud of you for supporting such behaviour. You owe them answers. Especially considering the following homophobic slurs and insults against the LGBTQ community in general. remember, you actively support this.

Abuse 1 Abuse 2 Abuse 3 Abuse 4 Abuse 5 Abuse 6 Abuse 7 Abuse 8 Abuse 9 Abuse 10 Abuse 11 Abuse 12 Abuse 13 Abuse 14 Abuse 15 Homophobia 1

Attention MPs. THIS is the kind of standpoint, behaviour and comments you put your names to. You support the Coalition for Marriage. This is what thir supporters stand for. Simple guilt by association. If you do NOT support this kind of behaviour, these kinds of comments and this ind of abuse, then you have my e-mail address – I have already contacted that vat majority of you and have received auto-reply notifications, so do NOT claim you are not aware of this issue.

To finish, one of the more ardent posters, Nathan/Nate/Nat Durrant, learned of Kate’s status as a Chaplain and Street Pastor, and started a relentless campaign to have her sacked. Suffice to say, it failed. Here are his attempts:

Sacking 2

NOTE: Kate at no time graphically detailed ANY sexual activity, gay or otherwise. As you can see further up the page, this is the common practice of C4M and their supporters.

Sacking 1 Sacking 3 Sacking 4 Sacking 5 Sacking 6

Again, MP’s YOU support this kind of behaviour, tolerance, attitude and action towards the LGBT community, INCLUDING the ones in YOUR constituencies.

In this day and age, with the knowledge, understanding and advancements we as a society have made, it is utterly disgusting that attitudes and behaviours like this are allowed to exist. It is even more galling that people in positions of power, and in government, lend their names to such excoriating acts of depratvity. What’s worse is that Facebook, despite receiving numerous reports about this page, has not removed any of the above listed comments, despite their anti-hatred policy and Terms of Service being violated.

I urge ANYONE who is a constituent under ANY of the above listed MP’s to contact them with your concerns that they are happy for their names to be associated with such vile hatred. If you want to contact your local press with this story, you have not only my gracious leave to do so, but also my unabounded encouragement to. This post will be promulgated as far and wide as is possible, both on Facebook and elsewhere in a concerted effort to say that we, the LGBT community, will not tolerate elected officials who agree with this kind of attitude.

Thank you for reading, and thank you in advance for sharing.

NOM’s mass banishment appears to be working. Well, mostly.

Now, after the excoriating bollocking that NOM’s Communications Director, Thomas Peters, likely received, whether after his abjectly poor, rude and ineffective display against UK gay rights advocate Peter Tatchell, his woeful attempt to recruit pro-life supporter Kathy Ireland that ended in him being told to ‘stop the hate’, or the feature here on NOManiacs about his inability to stop rampant anti-gay hate on the NOM Facebook page and blog that has helped lead to their rightful classification as a hate group, you’d have thought that he might have kept a closer eye on matters to avoid such a scenario happening again and actually do the job NOM pay him for, and his incompetency being exposed on a blog that has had 12,000 hits in the last 2 1/2 months…

Well, think again. Slowly but surely the ‘pro-traditional-marriage’ supporters, as they call themselves, came crawling back to the NOM Facebook page. NOM, perhaps reminded again by this blog about their inability to talk about anything but ‘the gays’, decided to dedicate their latest post about National Marriage Week to strengthening marriages, reducing divorce, promoting marriage before childbirth etc. Not a mention of the LGBT community, for once in about 500 posts. The only misnomer they published was on the NOMblog, where they falsely stated children do better when raised by mother and father – frequent studies have shown this to be false as they do equally as wel with LGBT couples. Other than that, not a mention. See below;

NOManiacs 130213a

Their followers, on the other hand, had different ideas. Like Pacer Metzenberg, John Colbert and Jeffrey Bonderman, who attacked the LGBT community, posted links to notoriously anti-gay organisations and made personal attacks respectively. Screencaps below;

NOManiacs 130213b

NOManiacs 130213c

They weren’t the only ones, however.  The language and tone got worse. While the most insulting was from an obviously fake profile, the fact remains that NOM remains, and will always remain, a magnet for homophobes, bigots and hatemongers. See for yourselves;

NOManiacs 130213d

NOManiacs 130213e NOManiacs 130213e

Mr. Peters, you are fighting a losing battle. If you truly don’t want NOM to be classed as a hate group, you would have to start by banning all those making anti-gay statements on your pages. Which would presumably remove half your supporters. Then there is the innumerable links your group posts attacking gay people. And that’s before we look at the lies and misinformation you routinely post. That said, it’s people like Leslie here who make your job difficult to the point of incompetency. I’d advise looking for another post very soon;

NOManiacs 130213fNothing like espousing pretty much every lie NOM has ever fed to its followers over the course of its lifetime.

NOM has, and always will be, a hate group, regardless of how many people they ban, because they have spent years feeding the lies that now infest their page. This classification is their own doing. They created this monster, and now they cannot control it.

 

We have no sympathies.

NOM cries victim, claims it is not a hate group, nor anti gay…

Yes, they are actually turning their wave of anti gay hatred into a cry of martyrdom. Expect a furious diatribe from me very, very soon. See below;

NOManiacs 070213a

NOM appears to be under the impression that their oft-lying, homophobic, right-wing-Chrisitan, anti-gay organisation is suddenly a victim, even though nothing actually happened to them. Only yesterday we saw them resort to making up ‘facts’ about the UK gay marriage vote. Now they’re plumbing the depths of fear in order to garner donations. If you read the end of the previous post, you will see I mentioned exactly this tactic. This is how they put it across.

NOManiacs 070213b

Right, I underlined several points in this self-effacing, self-martyring heap of horseshit to highlight exactly why he and his organisation are listed as a hate group for very good reasons.

1 – Putting the word marriage in speech marks, as if it has no actual standing. News for you Brian, you complete fucking ignoramus, it DOES have standing. In that little thing called the law with which you seem to have so much trouble differentiating from the ‘facts’ in your Bible. This tactic reeks of demeaning and degrading the officially recognised loving union of two people who, and why don’t you just try being honest for once, make you feel icky? Nothing more, Brian, nothing less.

2 – The reason you are labelled ”hate groups” is not only what I just highlighted, but also because you allow your followers and supporters to use all manner of foul, abusive, vulgar, sexually graphic, insulting, hateful comments on your facebook page and NOMblog page without fear of them being removed, yet when someone complains, or even voices a  dissenting opinion. you instantly ban them. If you look at the posts and screencaps – of which there are well over a thousand – featured on this blog you will see exactly what I mean.

3 – See point 1 and 2. Your words have consequences. Usually those consequences are for your followers to publicly demean, castigate, demonise and outright hate on gay people. Even something so small as  putting the word marriage in speech marks can have a knock-on effect. If you look at the comments featured immediately after this blog post, you will see what I mean;

NOManiacs 070213c

Look me in the eyes and tell me you and your supporters are not a homophobic hate group, Brian. I fucking defy you to. Come to the UK, look me square in the face and tell me you and your followers do not hate gays.

4 – Scroll back up if you need reference points. Is ‘reportedly admitted’ the same as ‘we don’t know, but we need to make ourselves look like the victim so let’s make some shit up’ – cite your sources or we’ll simply think you’re lying – you have previous form for this, let us remind you.

5 – Irresponsible? What the actual fuck? You claim your organisation is not anti-gay, yet you spend your life, and your six-figure salary, actively trying to oppose legal equality of the people you claim not to be against, you cataclysmic hypocrite. Your Facebook page and blog consist of about 95 percent gay-focused material and literature. We’ve highlighted in the past your reluctance to talk about anything other than gays, and you responded by posting about divorce. Once. Then went back to talk about the gays. Allowing the litany of hatred on your pages is irresponsible, Brian, given how many violent homophobic incidents we continually hear of.

5b – You don’t want to be labelled as a hate group? Then might I suggest you order your director of communications, who painted himself as a massive bellend by continually trying to talk over gay rights activist Peter Tatchell on a recent interview, to actually do what the hell you pay him to do and start removing the pandemic anti-gay hatred that features on your facebook page. If you want any examples, look at pretty much any blog post here – there are about 1,200 or so to choose from, and about 400-450 different people featured.

 

In summation, Brian, you are scared, and a coward. You have been picking on gays for years upon years, and your religion has been doing it for centuries. Now, finally, when someone hits back – and no, I do NOT condone Mr. Corkins’s actions – you suddenly cry victim and martyr yourself. Perhaps if you hadn’t been so public with your constant harassment, abuse, denigration and demonising of a section of society, perhaps they might not be so aggravated as to actually take things this far? Instead of trying to create further rictions, we would highly suggest you actually try heal the rifts you have caused and work with us.

Note – I have emailed both of the public relations officials cited in the NOMblog post asking for a direct comment from Brian Brown about the content listed not only in this blog but also in all of the other ones featured, as well as the constant stream of hate-rhetoric on his blog and Facebook page. I will let you know their response in due course.

 

Thanks for reading.

Look who decided to crawl out from under his rock…

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while and are familiar with the more vocal of the anti-gay Bible-wavers will already know the name Jahnmaud Lane. Those of you not familiar are advised to read our expose about the hypocritical, homophobic and hateful ex-convict. Of late he has been fairly quiet, only resurfacing for a NOM photo opportunity in North Carolina on the passing of Amendment One.

Until recently.

Now we are all read up on Lane’s past and his proclivities – namely slandering gay people and equating them to paedophiles – we can see his latest, somewhat-unhinged postings. This was the starter;

NOManiacs 230113a

 

I don’t think Lane voted Democrat in the last election. His open hate for the President continued further, as we shall see later. In the meantime, a bit more open homophobia from the self-confessed one-time same-sex-attracted Lane, and a gem from Wayne Nolley, who we will be covering very soon regarding him sending pro-SSM individuals sexually explicit personal messages.

NOManiacs 230113b

Again with the sex, Wayne. You think of gay sex more than gay men do. It’s an obsession. The same is true for most of the anti-SSM crowd. It’s a personal matter. As in, none of your fucking business, pardon the pun.

Now, here is where Lane goes off on a tangent. As we saw, he likes to use the Bible to justify certain things, while ignoring the vast majority of the rest of it. No big surprise there. He also, we can presume, is not a Democrat, nor is he a supporter of the incumbent President. As we can see in the next few images, he combines both of these things into a quite worrying statement;

NOManiacs 230113c

Yes. Lane is actually advocating for the death of the President. Now I’m no legal eagle, but I’m pretty sure certain Federal agencies take an interest in comments like these. Given Lane’s violent past, one has to wonder what is going on in his mind.

NOManiacs 230113d

Lane at his typical best here. One of his frequent utterances is ‘homosexuality is evil, and the subculture is pedophilia’. Never mind that there is no link whatsoever and there is not one iota of truth in it, he still pushes it as fact.

NOManiacs 230113e

As does Aaron. To answer your question in a succinct and very brusque manner, paedophilia and drugs are illegal for very good reasons. Being homosexual is not, you gigantic assclown. It is idiotic views like your own that foster a negative attitude towards the LGBT community. At the extreme end it purports violence against them. And that is why people like us exist, to counter your lies and show your hatred for what it really is. Hatred.

Back to Lane and his desire to see the President dead. Here is his justification for it;

NOManiacs 230113f

The Bible. Big fucking surprise there. He basically just wished another human dead. Presumably in the same way he wished the man he shot had died. Luckily he didn’t. If you ever wanted to look evil in the eye, here it is.

Lane only made one more post after this, to ask someone if they would allow the age of consent to be lowered – he used the word ‘consenting’ approximately eight times in a seven-line post. After this we can only presume he either got bored and started looking for some gay porn, or realised he was defeated and quietly sidled away so as not to be noticed.

Just remember, Lane, we know who you are, and what you are, and we will always be watching.

Note – Brian  Brown has refused not only to acknowledge the anti-gay hate speech that goes on on his organisation’s Facebook page, but has also refused to acknowledge his association with Mr. Lane. Brian, associating with people like this is a sure way to see your aims and plans nosedive spectacularly…

List of UK MP’s who actively support organisation with homophobic views and supporters.

Recently NOM linked to a report on a leaflet campaign going on right here in the UK by a group called Coalition for Marriage – CfM. They reported how CfM were targeting the populace of UK constituencies whose Members for Parliament – MP’s – were considered a ‘swing’ vote in the upcoming bill to run through the House of Commons regarding equal marriage treatment for homosexual couples. Their plan was to distribute a million leaflets urging people to contact their MP’s and tell them not to vote for legal equality.

The UK already has ‘civil unions’, which, while affording more rights to gay couples, is still not entirely equal. Speaking as someone who already has one and has a lawyer for a partner, let me tell you we are NOT, repeat, NOT on an equal legal footing whatsoever. Hence why the bill is going through. Now, support for equal rights marriage in the UK has generally been positive, due to a combination of lower rates of religious following, openly gay public figures and celebrities, and, in general, a culture more open of acceptance and tolerance.

This little featurette by NOM intrigued this admin, and I began digging a little into CfM. Their website, found in this link, basically argues all the same points as NOM – man and woman, redefining – as if that hasn’t already been done before, religion, blah blah blah. Nothing indicating that marriage is actually a legal concept and has nothing whatsoever to do with religion other than having a ceremony commemorating this fact.

It also has a long list of signatories, including many former and current serving MP’s. They have assigned their name and position to this group. Which means they ascribe to CfM’S ideals. As do the people who post on the Facebook wall. Who post some quite homophobic messages.

Which is why we are today posting the list of supporters, tagging them, and associating their names with the kind of hate speech they seemingly support. In supporting Coalition for Marriage, they also support the views of the organisation and their supporters. Here they are;

NOManiacs 200113a

List 1 of 2

NOManiacs 200113b

List 2 of 2

All of these people have publicly associated their names with the kind of homophobic hate-speech as listed below.

NOManiacs 200113c

 

The old insult of ‘perverts’ surfacing again.

NOManiacs 200113d

Once again we see the anti-gay side focusing on something that not only doesn’t exist, but also is none of their business, but also hyperbolic to the extreme. Plus an insult thrown in for good measure.

NOManiacs 200113e

No, there isn’t. And why again with all the focus on the sex livesIt’s not only an obsession, it’s quite disturbing.

NOManiacs 200113f

So, basically, be gay but be quiet about it. Sorry, we locked the closet door after we came out and threw away the key.

NOManiacs 200113g

 

The Regenerus study in question has been refuted and disproved for countless faults and failures in the study sample. Countless studies since and recently have proved that children growing up with same sex parents are no less worse off than those with opposite sex parents.

NOManiacs 200113h

Again, see above point. Also try acting like you care about single-parent families. If ‘mother and father’ are that important, after all.

NOManiacs 200113i

 

Greyed out due to it being reported. We are not ‘anti-Christian’. We are anti-you-telling-us-what-to-do-based-on-your-own-personal-beliefs. There are many studies that show that it is a largely biological reason that decides on sexual orientation, so it is not an excuse. Even if it were a choice, why should that make a differenceYou chose a different religion than others. Why should you be afforded any ‘acceptance’ for your choice?

NOManiacs 200113j

Another horrible attempt to compare and equate homosexuality with paedophilia. Nothing more to say. Remember, MP’s, you condone these comments.

NOManiacs 200113k

 

More simple insults against the LGBT community. Al taken from the public page that these MP’s support.

NOManiacs 200113l

Again, a slippery-slope, straw-man argument that claims allowing gays to be married will allow paedophiles to marry children. Despite the fact that there is a legal age of adulthood that does not allow anyone under a certain age to sign a contract, due to intelligent and emotional development.

NOManiacs 200113m

This basically speaks for itself. Both Davids basically show their disdain for gay couples.

 

MP’s listed here. I hereby give yourself a chance to distance yourself from an organisation like this that not only allows oft-refuted anti-gay hate speech to remain on it’s boards for over a week, but has also seen fit to associate your names with it. Whatever your personal religious feelings, public association with hateful comments like this will only cause discord amongst your LGBT constituents, whom you are duty bound to represent in terms of the law, not religion. We await your reply.

Galling naïveté and outright hatred from the followers of NOM. Including mostly new faces.

Now, we all know that the Bible contains parts in it ordering it’s readers not to question it for it is the one, the only truth. Even though there are dozens of versions of said ‘truth’. We all know that are contradictions upon contradictions in the Bible that the more fervent theists refuse to even acknowledge, let alone explain. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence can see that there are inherent fallacies with the Bible and as such it cannot be used in secular law-making, nor as a tool to control the secular freedoms of others.

Unless you are a NOM supporter, that is. Several studies have found that, on average, theists are 4-6 IQ points worse off. Believe us, those points count. The studies can be seen here, and explained more simply in this link. Here we see some new faces to NOManiacs show their apparent lack of comprehension abilities, or even an capability to display knowledge of correct facts.

I apologise now for this is going to be a VERY long blog post. We’ll look at each of the highlighted points in turn, and inform each individual as to the correct, verifiable facts. ReadyHere we go…

NOManiacs 160113a

This one is pretty easy to dismiss. The Bible, for reasons listed above, is not the first and foremost law on everything. For reasons of space we are forgoing the normal practice of listing the people who actually like these posts. We’d be here until the summer. Next…

NOManiacs 160113b

Fact One. Marriage is not an institution of the Church. It is a legal concept blessed by the relevant religion in a ceremony known as a ‘wedding’. Fun fact – Pagan rituals pre-dated anything the Bible writes about the topic. In a Handfasting, a blessed rope is tied and knotted around both parties’ wrists using a hitch knot. Hence the current idioms of ‘tying the knot’ and ‘getting hitched’. Moving on to some real hatred…

NOManiacs 160113c

Gordon, we hate to break this to you, but it really, really isn’t. The fact that there is nothing in any marriage vows that promises to rear children appears to have passed you by, as has the fact you seem to think that infertile/old couples, as well as those who choose not to have children, now cannot marry. You said it, pal. I can also quote reams of studies NOT financed by religious organisations that are inherently on the side the LGBT community. See this one for starters.

As for Ryan, his outright insults are duly noted, and the link he offers takes you here – it is basically an argument against homosexuality mainly based on sex. Honestly, they’re fixated by it more than we are. Next hatemongers…

NOManiacs 160113d

Note to Andrew – we support the right for a woman to choose what she wants do do with her own body, you raging misogynist. This has also no relevance to a legal marriage argument, nor any credence to equal rights. Kudos for a shameful effort to label all pro-SSM people as rampant baby-murderers, but we, unlike you, are not that stupid to be taken in by it.

Kevin, see the above point about not requiring procreation for marriage, and vice versa. It’s not all about sex and babies. You might want to realise the fact that unmarried couples have children, as do single parents. Maybe you should focus your attention on them if you feel so strongly about the subject instead of inhabiting a page that openly admits to wanting to discriminate against gays.

Ronald, people get married. Not genitals. Get your nose out of our bedrooms. You utter pervert.

Daniel, the blue comment says it all. See the above arguments for why. Then take pride in the fact that you support the legal discrimination of other human beings, you despicable cretin. Next…

NOManiacs 160113e

Shirley, we have already covered the procreation argument. As for brainwashing, see the linked studies at the top of the page and realise that it’s not the educational establishments doing the brainwashing, darling…

NOManiacs 160113f

Andrew, seems you have difficulty grasping the concept of Nature. This link here shows that homosexuality indeed DOES exist in Nature, ergo it must designate it as Natural, ergo your point is moot. You can find many more studies that show the same result. Ditto about ‘God’. See the first paragraph.

NOManiacs 160113g

We’re not self-hating. We’re entirely happy with who we are and don’t have to take to public forums to voice our dislike for another section of society based on something that, and let’s not play dumb here, is an entirely private part of someone else’s life. As for promiscuity, I think that, gay or straight, promiscuousness is simply an inherent human condition. Don’t even get us started on the oft-debunked myth about homosexuality/AIDS/HIV etc. The second you take lesbians, who, by definition cannot spread it, your ‘facts’ and ‘figures’ are, simply put, utter bollocks.

Daniel, you think the LGBT community should be legally discriminated against. See the above points before realising any you make are irrelevant.

NOManiacs 160113h

Gary’s circular logic aside, marriage does exist outside of the Bible. Otherwise, non-Christians couldn’t get married. This is a whole new level of ridiculousness. Also see earlier notes on Handfasting.

Daniel, really, this is bordering on the extremely perverse. Can you stop intruding into our bedrooms – it’s not healthy. Nor is an obsession with male rather than female gay sex from someone supposedly straight…

Amy, we agree. Regardless of whether it is opposite- or same-sex couples. Children do well raised by two parents. Thank you for agreeing.

Jared, who has been featured here before, again is using the concept of ‘sin’, which is solely a religious concept and cannot be proved to exist in any tangible or intangible form. The irony of you talking about valid arguments was not lost on us.

Marty, your irony of saying diversity matters while arguing against equality for diverse sections of society is not also not missed, but also risibly inane. Oh, and there ARE laws that allow same-sex couples equal recognition under the law. They cover about 20 percent of  your country. The fact a Brit had to tell you that should be quite embarrassing.

NOManiacs 160113i

Robert, it was good enough for my Mum and Dad too. Seeing how happy it made them only reinforces my belief that I should be afforded the same protection and rights as they were. They think that too, because they aren’t so insecure about their own union that they worry allowing gay people the same rights might destroy it

Elena, there are already 7,000,000,000 people on this planet. The need to rampantly procreate and populate the lands has already passed us by, dear…

NOManiacs 160113j

Andrew, if we ‘get our way’ – I prefer the term, ‘be afforded equal treatment under the law’ – the fact that gay marriage is allowed will not make it compulsory. Nor will everybody stop having children. Nor the fact that we are LGBT makes us in any way infertile. And what the FUCK were you smoking when you came up with that comment about murdering children* Honestly, I’m concerned for your sanity.

Michele, we have featured you before, yet you persist in posting messages in a known hate-group. So we will happily tag you again and inform you that the above point about the population of the Earth at this time still stands. It hasn’t changed in the 15 minutes it’s taken me to get this far.

NOManiacs 160113k

The above was made in response to someone who used the phrase ‘gay couples and their families’. NOM doesn’t foster hatredNOM isn’t a hate groupTwo words. Fuck off.

NOManiacs 160113l

Michele, we are dealing with facts and very real scenarios. Not something that will never, ever happen. Nice hyperbolic hypothetical attempt at distracting from the point at hand to avoid having to answer it, but we are aware to your tricks. Where you later made excuses not to answer was also noted.

Jamie, the law of the land says that it IS about tolerance. It says it IS about equality. It also IS that civil law you cite that you feel is beneath you. Try citing ‘God’s decisions’ if you ever fall foul of that law yourself. And Jack, no, it isn’t. See the first paragraph.

NOManiacs 160113m

Now this is just a whole heap of hatred right here. Hasani, you might need to realise that one, fornication is OK. It’s called having sex. It’s allowed. Two, you also need to realise that allowing two adults of the same sex will NOT pave the way for paedophilia – simply because that children are not allowed to enter into legal contracts like marriage due to their age, development and intelligence. Three, nor will it lead to beastiality. I have yet to hear of any animal give its consent to marriage vows.

Now, this admin has come across Jason Salamone, gay-hater extraordinaire, on a few occasions before. This is actually mild by his standards. He has parroted these arguments time and again and has been refuted, time and again. His grasp on the genetics of homosexuality is basic at best. He trumpets having both mother and father present for children yet remains stoically silent on single-parents until questioned. He has no plan for them. He still cannot grasp that homosexuality has not been classed as a mental disorder or forty years, nor the fact it is as much a ‘behaviour’ as heterosexuality is. His statistics on homosexual coupes an domestic violence come from a flawed study that used a poor sampling for comparison. When I mentioned those IQ points earlier, I sad 4-6 was an average. Jason appears to be 40-60 off. His stubbornness to believe anything other than what he says is unfathomably endless.

NOManiacs 160113n

Again, Jared, the slippery-slope, straw-man argument will not hold up under any scrutiny. See the above point. Or, if you need a very simple way to remember it, if it can’t physically say vows or isn’t old enough, it isn’t gong to happen. Maybe you should follow your Bible, and stop making these false judgments.

NOManiacs 160113o

It seems like Jason would happily allow gay people to marry the opposite gender even though he knows that they would be having sex with the same gender. And he thinks that it’s gays that are destroying marriage…

NOManiacs 160113p

Funny how people were talking about marrying appliances, and George uses an appliance analogy. They must be the ones who are advocating for human/appliance marriage. Clever sods.

Michele pops up again with her own brand of bigoted hatred. Michele, darling, homosexuals already contribute to this world in ways that are beyond counting. To say they don’t is at best ignorant and at worst outright evil. The institution of marriage exists to bond two people who are willing to dedicate their lives to each other and reap the benefits it brings. The courts are beginning to realise that, and the only argument against allowing SSM is religious in nature. Laws are not based on religion, Michele.

How about not needing to PROCREATE TO MARRYAnd attempting to make your point by using UNNECESSARY CAPITALS?

Tammy Sorenson displaying not only inconceivable belief in Creationism but also apparently support for incest. Those grandkids came from somewhere, Tammy…

At this point, Jason Salamone started posting lengthy entries that claimed gay marriage had wrecked marriage in Spain and The Netherlands. Not only were these false claims, he failed to cite his ‘facts’. I would have capped it and put it here but I don’t want to concentrate too much on one raving homophobe.

Margarita, please see the oft-repeated point about marriage vows and the current population.

NOManiacs 160113t

Not only every debunked argument ever offered by NOM, but some good old fashioned gay-bashing thrown in for good measure.

NOManiacs 160113u

Wow, this is a whole boatload of bullshit right here. Chris, your ‘scientific’ results came from theological organisations who fed them to you knowing you wouldn’t question them because they, like you, hate gays. Marriage IS a legal contract. The ‘as long as you both shall live’ part of the civil ceremony must have passed you by, genius. As for the slippery slope argument, see the earlier points. Religions are attempting to curtail women’s rights all the time via secular laws. Please go moan at them.

We aren’t sure if this guy is genuine or not, but the fact remains that NOM are still allowing hate speech like this on their page. Either their admin is incompetent, or they actively endorse comments like this.

So ends another long – I did warn you – blog about the rampant homophobia fostered by NOM and participated in by everyone, new to their page or old. This has taken me four hours to compile and after seeing such douchebaggery, hatred, obnoxiousness, stubbornness and idiocy I now need to go bathe in sulphuric acid to cleanse myself.

NOM lies yet again. And appear to be shocked when requested to be ‘tolerant’. And their followers publish hate-speech and anus-fixations. Again.

We all know that Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown are not only unaware of their own scathing personal hypocrisies but also very economical with the truth. This is how they keep their band of followers paralysed with fear in a clever, if not very moral, ploy to solicit money to support their six-figure salaries, which are many multiples of what donors actually earn.

But we’re not here to point out their profligate, iniquitous and shameless actions. WhatWe areSorry. We ARE here to point out their profligate, iniquitous and shameless actions. NOM has been casting their – in the case of Maggie Gallagher – who should, if she followed her own advice about marriage be called Maggie Srivastava – beady eyes across the Atlantic to events happening in France, where new French Premier François Hollande is looking to implement legal – NOT religious – marriage equality that will officially afford gay and lesbian couples the same rights as other married couples. 

How did NOM address this issueSee below;

Now, this Facebook post just smacks of lies from start to finish, as well as a little ill-disguised homophobia thrown in for good measure. Note that they claim the report says that Catholic schools WILL have to stay SILENT, as well as indicating with a graphic that they believe the Bibble actually holds more sense and reason than all academic subjects, when it has been proven time and again that this is the exact opposite. They also ask what would happen if their followers were banned from exercising their religious liberties. Which aside from being a scenario that would never happen, was basically just an open invitation for their followers to attack the LGBT community. Which they soon did.

The truthCatholic schools  in France were NOT told by the French Government to stay silent. They were advised to stay NEUTRAL on the subject. NOM’s galling bending, nay, breaking of the truth could be seen on the link in the above picture. They were so appallingly lazy and naive that they posted the contradictory information not only on their blog, but also invited their followers to see the original post. See the pictures below;

Now, scaring the sheeple with the threat of not being allowed to use their personal beliefs to oppress and openly discriminate against homosexual people, unsurprisingly, sent the mass ignorant on the Facebook page into frenzies of homophobia and anus-fixations. Which we all know Brian and Maggie intended. If you have to resort to lying to scare the crap out of your supporters in an effort to rob them of their hard-earned incomes, it says quite a lot about your cause. And it’s status.

Here are just a few of the more severe cases;

Except the Bible is not the Truth. Especially as there are many dozens of variations of said ‘Truth’. Can’t all be right…

NOManiacs 120113e

A marriage is not based on the types of sex it’s participants have, Miguel. The NOM crew have an obsession with gay people’s sex lives that borders on the extremely perverse.

NOManiacs 120113f

Miguel’s anal sex obsession manifesting itself further. Wonder if he thinks the same thing about the mouth. Which would probably explain his obsession with other people’s sex lives. And Karen seems to think that forcibly inserting something into a man is the solution. Even though she spends half her life campaigning against such practices…

NOManiacs 120113g

And when was the last time we used our own personal beliefs to harangue, abuse, insult, denigrate, demean, belittle, asperse, calumniate and malign others, John? I don;t think you know the true meaning of hatred, and by the way, your ignorance is showing…

NOManiacs 120113h

Now, this profile was only created on 03 January, and we suspect it is a troll or a fake designed solely to post inflammatory speeches on the NOM Facebook page. He made further posts that were on the borderline of being genuine and believable. We will continue to monitor him…

NOManiacs 120113i

A visit to the NOM page isn’t complete without inane witterings from the resident anus-fixated Clarice Warren. Here he proselytises that it must be the straight parents teaching their children to have gay sex. Yes, he really, really is that barking mad…

NOManiacs 120113j

There has never been a registered left-handed birth either, Clarence. Yet both gay and left-handed people exist. This obvious attempt at disparaging the genetic argument falls flat on it’s face. Again. This argument will need serious facial reconstruction if it keeps doing that. Ditto the whole homosexuality/mental illness argument. You have to admire his stubbornness…

So ends another sordid, ignoble and grubby chapter of the Hate Group that is NOM and their hateful followers. Sorry if we put you off your dinner. Hatred and lies do that to people. It’s just a pity that the shameless and greedy ‘Christians’ who run this organised maelstrom of gay-bashing don’t realise how their actions affect others too.
