NOM Accuses LGBT Activists of Bribing New Hampshire Legislature

Just when you thought it was safe to turn on your T.V., the National Organization for [Heterosexual Only] Marriage has released another television ad. The new ad targets New Hampshire Governor Lynch for his change of heart on gay marriage and makes the outlandish suggestion that gay activists bribed the New Hampshire legislature.

Although NOM’s poll numbers continue to decline, they insist on using lies and deception to attempt to convince moderates to come to their side. By their own admission on their website, NOM indicates that whenever they say “ban gay marriage” they “lose about ten percentage points in the polls.”

Maine Governor John Baldacci has signed a bill which makes Maine the fifth state [along with Connecticut, Vermont, Massachusetts and Iowa] in the United States to allow same-gender marriages. The Maine Legislature gave the bill over to Baldacci, who had been undecided on the measure.

Three cheers for Maine for joining the right side of the issue!

Stupid Things People Say About Gays: Gays Attempting to Obtain Privilege Nobody Else is Allowed

First, I’m going to talk about the comment, “It’s about homosexuals obtaining a privilege that nobody else is allowed to have.” As a long time resident of Texas, USA, Earth, I know with certainty that no one has ever been allowed to marry except the homosexual. In the United States, homosexuals already receive numerous privileges that are denied to everyone else, like marriage, adoption rights, 401K benefits from a spouse, Social security death benefits, etc…etc…etc… Those privileges are provided gladly by our government to homosexuals, but no one else… they are exclusive to us. (Note the sarcasm?).

Right Wing Showing More Signs of Weakness In Anti-Marriage Arguments

lack of support in the first push to add a same-gender marriage ban to Indiana’s constitution makes no difference to the right in their efforts to deny homosexuals equal legal protection. The first proposed amendment was largely criticized for potentially denying domestic partnership benefits to same-gender couples that would otherwise be permitted by their employer. As if to say, “O.k… so we will give gays those rights, but not any more,” the legislature is at it again – this time in a shockingly bipartisan push.
