Greg commented on the blog post NOM’s bought and paid for African-American group to lead march
Shouldn’t they be looking into getting a speaker from Al Qaeda? Or at least some marchers? They’re on the same side on this issue…
Greg commented on the blog post Peter Sprigg exposes his anti-gay group’s hypocrisy again
One of the two most fundamental and most heinous of christianity’s basic precepts – we are all born evil, all sinners. To evangelize anyone toward a belief in christianity, you have to convince your listeners that they are evil and sinful, because otherwise the rest of their story doesn’t have any substance.
But equally bad is their solution to this sad state of affairs: their deity requires a blood sacrifice to atone for our evil state of being. Think about what a “blood sacrifice” is – how is it different than the Mayans cutting the hearts out of thousands of people? I cannot see the difference.
The basic precepts are just wrong. They are stone age concepts.
Greg commented on the blog post The First “Approve Referendum 74″ TV Ad Airs Statewide in Washington
Frankly, I’m tired of these “feel good” ads. They don’t work. Right before the election, the foes of LGBT equality will blanket the air waves with misleading and dishonest ads. This is their playbook, and they wil with it every time. We need to be prepared to call them out – loudly and repeatedly – on every single lie they put in their ads.
They will say, “We can’t let them redefine marriage for the rest of us.”
Reply: No, we are expanding the definition of marriage to include more people. We all agree that marriage is a great and good institution that brings stability to relationships and societies. Why would we – and you – NOT want to expand it to include more people?
They will say, “Marriage has never changed throughout history, for thousands of years it has been the union of one man and one woman.”
Reply: This is not true at all. A minimal knowledge of world history, even a cursory reading of the Bible, tells us this. A much more common “biblical” view of marriage is one man and many women.
They will say, “Schools will be forced to teach our youngest children that homosexuality is as good as heterosexuality.”
Reply: This is totally false. Marriage equality laws never address nor affect school curriculum in any manner whatsoever.
They will say, “Studies prove that children do better when raised by a mother and a father.”
Reply: This is not correct. Studies show that children do better when raised in a stable home environment; this is the critical factor in successful child-rearing, not the gender of the parents.
They will say: “I’m OK with them having civil unions. Why do they have to use the word marriage? After all, civil unions gives them the same rights.”
Reply: This is perhaps the most blatant display of discrimination that one can imagine. It conveys the message, loud and clear, that gays and lesbians are an inferior class of human beings and do not therefore deserve the exact same rights as other humans. Can you imagine saying this about any other minority group (“I’m OK with Jews having civil unions, but not marriage”)?
and so on…
