Quote# 80379

Isn't it interesting that the African Americans that were brought here against their will, coercively, in bondage, in chains, in a horrific experience called slavery. They were forced here and they end up being in state by state, many cases, what has saved us from the bondage and enslavement that would come upon us if gay marriage actually passed in a state. California being a prime example where the African Americans saved us from the bondage we would have faced.

Uh, I’m sorry: What?

No, wait. Strike that. I’m not sorry at all. You’re just not making any damn sense.

seriously wat.

Lemme see if I got this logic. Blacks were brought here as slaves so that 200 years later they would be a political force to vote against gay marriage? Thereby releiving you of being in bondage? Because gay marriage would make you a slave???
Oh shit, my logic circuits just melted down.
Norman! coordinate!!!

I had no idea that legalizing gay marriage would take you away from your homeland and family, force you to toil away in the fields all day for nothing, and take away all of your human rights. Why do morons keep comparing their little inconveniences to either slavery or the Holocaust? If I was African American I'd be extremely offended by the comparison. Actually, scratch that, I'm still offended by that comparison.

So...you think that if gay people were to get married, they would somehow be able to chain you up and treat you as property?

That's funny. You're funny.

This is quite possibly the greatest venture into poignant social commentary I've ever read in my life

Sounds like the Doc here has an bsdm fantasy.
"Oh whip me you evil gay man you."

The Netherlands has had gay marriage for a decade now. The Dutch are not in bondage (except for those who want to be [insert porn music]).

Also, to answer your question, no, it isn't interesting.

"Isn't it interesting that the African Americans that were brought here against their will, coercively, in bondage, in chains, in a horrific experience called slavery."

This is not a complete sentence. It makes no sense.

"They were forced here and they end up being in state by state, many cases, what has saved us from the bondage and enslavement that would come upon us if gay marriage actually passed in a state."

They are dead. They did nothing.

Wait What?

Doubting Thomas

What? You're actually trying to equate the freedom of letting gay people marry who they want to with slavery?

I really haven't heard any reports of slavery being legal in the states where gay marriage is legal. If you have, please enlighten me.

Mister Spak

No, it was Mormons who kept you in bondage to anti-marriage policies in California.

What? That does not compute...

And this guy is a DOCTOR?! Please tell me his Ph.D. is in something completely irrelevant, such as English literature (no offense to any English majors who may be here).

This picture makes more sense than you:

(Also, @Brendan Rizzo: Please don't confuse the study of literature in general with things like postmodernist literary criticism).

Haha! You got me, FSTDT -- no one could be this bat shit insane. April Fools, right?

......... right?

Dear Dr. Garlow,

be assured that BDSM is not restricted to gay men and women. It is very common among straights too. So the bondage to which you so lovingly refer is already upon you.

I find it interesting that you refer to slavery as an experience. Experiences tend to be quite transitory. Slavery was anything but transitory. I lasted for hundreds of years in the Americas and elsewhere. But again, perhaps your choice of words is hnting at sex games.

Your second sentence is very confusing. What are you trying to say? I mean really. Are secretly hoping to be forced into a gay marriage? If you are, I have to say that you always have the right to deny assent, so that you cannot be forced.

OTOH, those who are gay and who wish to bond into a legal relationship do not in the least affect the rights of straights and their religious mumbo-jumbo rite of matrimony.

So kindly get the twist out of your knickers and at least try to sound like a someone with the intelligence one would expect of a doctor.

Oops, Rethuglicans have discovered that there are black fundies. The current campaign to reframe the pro-choice movement as genocide is one of the most duplicitous lies that has even been pushed upon the Black community. Fortunately, most Black voters, even fundies, recognize that the people courting their vote are the same people who want to do away with affirmative action and every social program that ever helped Blacks get a toehold in the middle class.

Doctor Whom

Freedom is slavery. War is peace. Ignorance is stength. Especially the last.

Oh, by the way, the best predictor of support for same-sex marriage is level of education. I wonder how that fits into your world view.

4/1/2011 8:21:08 AM


So if gay marriage had passed, you'd have been forced to marry a black gay man?

Wow, what a narrow escape HE had!

The Mormons and the Knights of Columbus paid for an advertising blitz in black neighborhoods during that election which claimed, falsely (as in, Bearing False Witness---ring a bell?), that Barack Obama supported the law banning gay marriage and wanted them to vote for it, which many of them did, believing they were supporting him. Other ads told them their churches could be sued for refusing to perform gay marriages, another lie. When it was made public immediately after the election that they had been tricked, those black voters were pissed off about it, and many said they would have voted the other way had they known the facts. It appears that by your logic, God's plan was actually to bring on Joseph Smith and those Mormons you love to hate rather than slavery, wouldn't it?

"Interesting"? Slavery is tragic, horrific, dehumanizing--not interesting.

Gay marriage involves the same bondage and enslavement as straight marriage: none.

You are a lying bigot.
