OH THOSE FABULOUS SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES!

American Family Association Invokes Slavery To Slam RNC’s Appointment Of Gay Fundraiser


Some social conservatives are extremely upset with the Republican National Committee for appointing the executive director of the pro-gay Log Cabin Republicans to its finance committee, with the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer suggesting the move makes it time to “stop giving even one more dollar to the Republican Party” or even to start a new “3rd party.” The “GOP just threw us under the bus,” he tweeted. Fischer, whose influential organization regularly hosts GOP lawmakers and presidential candidates, was so incensed he even compared the appointment to that of a pro-slavery Republican during the Civil War:


The Family Research Council sees the situation as similarly dire, writing on their action arm’s blog, “If you are pro-life and pro-family you should NEVER donate to the Republican Party.”

No surprise there.  And no surprise to read what presidential hopeful and batshyte crazy Michele Bachmann's husband said about gays just last summer:

"Dr. Bachmann explained his position on homosexuality while offering theoretical advice to parents concerned that one of their children was gay.

BACHMANN: We have to understand: barbarians need to be educated. They need to be disciplined. Just because someone feels it or thinks it doesn’t mean that we are supposed to go down that road. That’s what is called the sinful nature. We have a responsibility as parents and as authority figures not to encourage such thoughts and feelings from moving into the action steps…

And let’s face it: what is our culture, what is our public education system doing today? They are giving full, wide-open doors to children, not only giving encouragement to think it but to encourage action steps. That’s why when we understand what truly is the percentage of homosexuals in this country, it is small. But by these open doors, I can see and we are experiencing, that it is starting to increase."


Apparently homophobia doesn't run in the Bachmann family; it gallops.

Michele Bachmann:
"Gay marriage is probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and our nation in the last, at least, thirty years. I am not understating that."


[Sept. 11, 2001, was just a hiccup, I guess.]
BACHMANN WARNED ‘THE LION KING’ WAS GAY PROPAGANDA: At the November 2004 EdWatch National Education Conference, Bachmann said the “normalization” of homosexuality would lead to “desensitization”: “Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”

such a relevant topic.

Well, slavery is bad. And fags are bad. Therefore they must be the same thing. Somehow.

If these doofuses want to stop donating to the Republican party, or start a third party, fine with me. The Republicans would never win another national election, and the fundies would reveal their true colors by showing that even the party of Boehner, Bachmann, and the Pauls isn't loopy or extremist enough for them.

Here's a link to great article warning us about the heterosexual agenda being driven by none other than Bristol Palin...

Don't laugh too hard...

I'm waiting for Bachmann's husband to come out...he sounds like a closeted gay man to me... those who name call and bend over backwards to bash gay citizens, well sometimes they have their own little secrets..

As fiscal conservative limited government guy with libertarian leanings I am still scratching my head as to why the republicans keep making their tent smaller and smaller.

This guy [Dr. Bachmann] sounds like a very repressed homosexual to me. "Barbarians"? Hasn't he heard about the Goloden Horde or the Spartans. But then there's the Nazi's. Hitler believed in punishment, too. The world is full of "Straight" men who want to "discipline" gay men. It seems like this hate will go on forever. We, the rest of the human race, need to stand up to this confusion and say enough is enough.

The day the evangelical movement pulls out (anyone else think that term is ironic) from the GOP is the day you can stick a fork in them. Seriously, I doubt it will ever happen, although we can always hope. Did my own little piece about Bachmann, myself. Enjoy.
