Quote# 78157

The antigay Family Research Council has vowed to wreak vengeance on Republican Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe in the 2012 elections for indicating she’ll back a stand alone bill to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

Council head Tony Perkins writes in a letter to members: “In less than two years, the liberal "Republican" will have to answer for her record of extremism, which now includes jeopardizing national security in order to use the military to advance the Left's radical social agenda. Attempting to explain her turncoat maneuver, Snowe said she arrived at her decision after "careful analysis" (which, considering how her state just voted to protect marriage, probably wasn't as careful as it should have been). Still, her announcement is one of the final pieces to the repeal puzzle for liberals, who may have cracked the 60-votes they need to put this gift under the tree for the 3% of America who lobbied for it.”

Unless you are currently in the military, or plan to join it soon, there is no reason why you should be entitled to have an opinion on DADT.

I'm waiting for some guy who was a prisoner in the Hanoi Hilton to step forward and admit to being gay- because there had to have been at least one. Want to see McCain's face then.

Yup. Having people not having to worry about someone discovering they're gay, and deciding to use it as blackmail against them, or just flat out using it to get them fired is utterly crippling to national security.

And if you don't have the numbers, you don't count, eh? What about if we disband your little group, then? Surely it can't count for more than, what, 3-5% of the U.S. populace? And likely far less. If our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is forfeit, why should your right to free speech and free assembly be held to be any more sacrosanct? By do you claim inalienable rights, yet deny them to anyone else?

Props to Olympia Snowe.
And to asshole Perkins, there are many who are not for gay marriage that have no problem with DADT repeal.

So I have no right to think DADT should have been repealed years ago?

And this is why the FRC is labeled as a hate group by the SPLC. It's not because they have an opinion on homosexuality, it's because they want to restrict rights for gay people.

Gawd, I'm getting tired of this.

I am currently entering my 19th year in the military. I have served beside homosexuals who have been some of the nicest, hardest working airmen I have known.

The incidents of sexual harassment have been pretty much nonexistent from the homosexual service members while almost 100% of the sexual harassment and rape cases in the military come from their straight counterparts. Even though many have been kicked out under DADT, those who are gay behave themselves in a sexually civilized manner much better than straight people do.

Soooooo...a Republican actually goes Left from stupid & actually DOES HER JOB & all the sudden she's one of The Weathermen?!

Tony Perkins = THE STUPID! IT BUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Several countries allow openly gay people to serve in the military. When you can prove conclusively that openly gay personnel have ever affected national security because they are gay, you might have the beginnings of a nub of a leg to stand on.

In 20 years this batshit "christian" will be a laughingstock to real Americans who will ask "What the fuck is wrong with him?".

Fuck! This is why the Left is always fighting loosing battles for public opinion. They let asshats like Perkins get away with friggin’ newspeak like this. Extremism?! Don’t make me laugh!

The antigay Family Research Council has vowed to wreak vengeance

===What a Christian sentiment! Of course the bible says: 'Vengeance is Mine, saith the Lord. I will repay.' But don't let going against the direct, infallible word of your god stop you from your own petty self-pleasing. It's almost as good as masturbation.

on Republican Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe in the 2012 elections for indicating she’ll back a stand alone bill to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

===And she's a Republican too. A house divided against itself cannot stand - now who said that?

Council head Tony Perkins writes

===He can actually do that?

in a letter to members: “In less than two years, the liberal "Republican" will have to answer for her record of extremism, which now includes jeopardizing national security in order to use the military to advance the Left's radical social agenda.


==What utter bullshite

Attempting to explain her turncoat maneuver, Snowe said she arrived at her decision after "careful analysis" (which, considering how her state just voted to protect marriage, probably wasn't as careful as it should have been). Still, her announcement is one of the final pieces to the repeal puzzle for liberals, who may have cracked the 60-votes they need to put this gift under the tree for the 3% of America who lobbied for it.”

===Could it be she will repent, Haggard-like?


===There's a part of America that can't be quite sane, in the sense that the rest of us understand the word.

Tony Perkins? I know I've heard of this guy before; now I know he is borderline fascist. Only fascists threaten physical violence against their political opponents.*

The only extremist here is you, Perkins. Letting gays have their rights is about as un-extremist as one can be. I applaud Senator Snowe for not being a bigoted and willfully-ignorant pawn of the super-rich like nearly everyone else in her political party. I hope these guys who threaten her get put behind bars or something.

Also, Perkins is implying that only gay people want gays to have rights. That is offensive to straight people as well, as it implies that we are all as bigoted as he! Unbelievable!

* Okay, communists do that sort of thing, too, but since Perkins is right-wing he would be fascist. Besides, despite the fact that the two groups are literally mortal enemies, there is no difference in practice between communism and fascism. The two philosophies are both totalitarian.

Then the overwhelming majority of Americans are extremists. Oh, but I remember now: Democracy counts only when it produces your desired outcome.

Tony Perkins is still bitter that his parents named him after a gay actor. I hope it eats him alive every damned day.

Tony Perkins

Hmmm, wonder if there's any relation to Anthony Perkins, the actor, who was bisexual (even though he married and had children) and eventually died of AIDS-related complications. Irony anyone?

President Obama will be signing into law the repealment of DADT tomorrow.

The best Xmas present for potential LGBT recruits into, and current personnel of, the US Armed Forces indeed.

Ergo, Family Research Council...:



Q.E.D., bitches. Your failure is now complete. Indeed you homophobes will continue to FAIL as the sane US electorate has foreseen.

>:D [/Gloating pro-LGBT straight]

[/Hyper-smug & ultra-superior]

@Brendan Rizzo

"Also, Perkins is implying that only gay people want gays to have rights. That is offensive to straight people as well, as it implies that we are all as bigoted as he! Unbelievable!"

Exactly. This is his assumption. Yours truly is a straight man who is very much pro-LGBT. Everyone is an individual. And it's those precise qualities that make up the variety and the human kaleidoscope that is our world. Vulcans have hit the nail on the head with their philosophy of 'I.D.I.C.: Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. But then of course, we have a philosophy...:

'Assume'. Where you make an ASS out of U and not ME.

Don't get mad, however. Take reassurance (and like me, lord it over, and feel hyper-smug & ultra-superior over Perkins & his homophobic ilk) from the fact that, despite all their pressurising & lobbying, all their bluff and bluster has ultimately availed them naught; for all their so-called 'efforts', they have failed. And always will.

Such a campaign would be a good distraction if you were fiddling the books, Tony. I'm not saying that you are; I'd just like to hear you deny it.

So, if Sen. Snowe wins the Republican nomination in 2012, does that mean you're going to support her opponent, a DEMOCRAT? Surely not.

Under DADT haven't people been booted from the military even if the others in their platoons say they don't want to lose the friend and brother/sister? So who is jeopardising national security? Sounds like Perkins would jeopoardise it for the sake of his bigotry.
