Marriage March

You know who deserves a march in defense of their rights? People who already have the right to marry, obviously! On March 23 (or March 26 – these people aren’t good with numbers), the Family Research Council will join likeminded buffoons in marching through Washington, D.C. in support of California’s Proposition 8, the constitutionality of which will be evaluated in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry beginning that same day.

On March 23, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court will be hearing arguments in the Hollingsworth v. Perry case, which will determine if California’s Proposition 8 measure is constitutional. This will determine whether “same-sex marriage” will become recognized and whether Americans will have the right to protect marriage.

With the legal arguments being heard, FRC has various resources available on marriage from religious, legal, and cultural perspectives. Visit our Why Marriage Matters site to learn more and to find out how you can educate others about the importance of traditional marriage.

Additionally, FRC will be joining other organizations to promote traditional marriage through participating in the Marriage March on March 23rd. Marriage March 2013 will feature various speakers that will empower and motivate you to promote the values of traditional marriage within your community.

What a pathetic bunch of bigots. I went through and read their arguments for “Why Marriage Matters.” It’s the same nonsense we’ve been hearing this entire time (and the type of crap that is thankfully dying out in American society): society will disintegrate, morality will be compromised, God will send his wrath, and of course, what about the children!? The Family Research Council is having a really hard time pushing their vile message as they slip into irrelevance, and I’m sure they hope this march will increase their visibility.

This stunt is comparable to racist white people marching to condemn desegregation, or more recently, Glenn Beck’s rally for idiots on the Washington Mall. I hope the crowd that shows up for this laughable little event is as small as their minds.

Another hair-brained reason to keep homosexuals out of the Boy Scouts

If there is a privileged group crying oppression, you can count on the Family Research Council and its cronies to come to the rescue. That the conservative Christian organization is urging the Boy Scouts to keep gays from infiltrating their ranks is not news. But the vitriol coming from FRC’s highest ranking members is just so astoundingly incoherent, it begs to be ridiculed.

Take this recent op-ed piece by Rob Schwarzwalder, Senior VP of the FRC, which appeared in The Arizona Republic on Feb. 13. Why shouldn’t gays be granted positions within the Boy Scouts, according to Schwarzwalder? Because, of course, it’s going to keep his boys from becoming Eagle Scouts:

My sons have been involved in Scouting since they were boys. Now teens, they are active Scouts, and one is a member of the Order of the Arrow, the Boy Scouts of America’s honor society. We have long looked forward to the day they will become Eagle Scouts.

Now we are wondering if that dream will ever come to pass, not because of any lack of effort on their part, but because of the tentative decision by the BSA national executive board to allow open homosexuals to serve as leaders or members of Scout troops.

Strange thing about Schwarzwalder’s article – he never explains how in the world homosexuals will hinder the ability of his children to become Eagle Scouts. The only conclusion I can fathom is that Schwarzwalder plans to pull his kids from the Boy Scouts should homosexuals be allowed…which means Schwarzwalder is just a raging homophobic asshole. I feel bad for his children, but I don’t feel bad for him just because he finds gays to be icky. Grow up.

Oh, but wait. Schwarzwalder assures us, “This is not a matter of bigotry.”

Race and ethnicity are benign qualities that have nothing to do with a person’s character. Homosexuality is, by definition, about sexual attraction and conduct, things about which most Scout parents have serious moral concerns.

Translation: My antiquated and unscientific views on homosexuality will not change (lest my church friends realize that I myself have visions of penises dancing in my head!). He follows with the obligatory separate-but-equal argument, to which bigots apparently still cling.

People who join Scouts know what the rules are. They also know there are many alternative organizations for their boys in which prohibitions against homosexuality do not exist. If homosexual activists and their allies want to form their own Scout-type group, they are free to do so. Just don’t ask the 2.7 million boys in the BSA, including my sons, to compromise their moral convictions and permanently alter the very nature of Scouting.

Compromise their moral convictions? Jesus Christ. Nobody’s asking that your boys suckle dicks. You know what having gay members and leaders in the Boy Scouts will do to your children? Nothing. It’ll mean that gay children will be able to learn about camping and survival skills from a national organization. If altering the very nature of Scouting means becoming an accepting organization that doesn’t subscribe to the backward thinking of our ancient relatives, then hell yes it’s time for a change.

P.S. May I suggest you contact Mr. Schwarzwalder?

Just how crazy is Rush Limbaugh?

The answer appears to be crazier by the day. Take, for example, this little excerpt from his radio show on January 16:

You know how to stop abortion? Require that each one occur with a gun.

This came after a conversation with a caller who complained that the country was up in arms about a massacre at an elementary school while we turn a blind eye to the epidemic of child-killing that comes in the form of abortion every year (and of course Limbaugh’s usual rant about Obama hating the American people and destroying the very fiber of our nation).

Limbaugh’s mind seems to be deteriorating at an abnormal pace. The poor guy never really had much with which to work, but it’s just getting sad now. Even worse, he represents a staggering proportion of Americans who actually believing that we are committing mass murder by providing women with abortions.

It’s a weird belief, and it’s rooted in the absurd. It’s lucky that such lunacy seems to be dying faster than it can be replaced.
