Quote# 83831


The pro-family movement is relentlessly demonized by those who want to normalize sexual aberrations. We are accused without ceasing of being hateful, homophobic bigots. Our organizations are tagged as hate groups. If anybody has been demonized, marginalized, and turned into social pariahs, it is the pro-family movement.

Meanwhile, Chas Bono is hardly a pariah by anyone's definition. She is the talk of Hollywood, and when the dancing starts will literally be the belle of the ball.

If the left's template is correct — that turning folks into social pariahs makes them kill themselves — then we should be awash in suicides here at the American Family Association. Our staff should be suffering from an epidemic of self-murder. But here we are, enjoying our lives, our families, our friends and our churches while nary a thought of suicide crosses our minds.

Well if it looks like a hateful homophobic bigot, walks like a hateful homophobic bigot and quacks like a hateful homophobic bigot...

Or maybe members of the"pro-family" movement are not social pariahs, just self-righteous jerks shunned because everyone else is sick of listening to them.

I remember at school how we all picked on the Pro-Family kids non stop. Jumped on their every action called them names and threw stuff at them...oh no wait.

You are a fully grown adult, teenagers are emotional and hormonal wrecks. Homosexual people are outnumbered and separated with no life lines, you have a large church and a bunch of people who support you. Also you aren't being bullied and picked on. Your persecution complex is showing.

You have no idea what being a social pariah is like.

Have you tried walking down the street holding your wife's hand, being pelted with insult for "flaunting your heterosexuality"? Have you heard people whisper behind your back and pull their children away if you dare show your affection to a woman in public, however innocently, because you're one of "those people"? Have you heard people spit and swear in disgust because of the clothes you wear?

No, being an asshole "pro-family"-person (only pro those families that don't include homosexual children I guess.. those families just don't count) isn't something that people can see until you start preaching. When you preach, sure, rational people will tell you that you're an asshole. But when you're not preaching, you go around as anyone else.

And when you are preaching, you always have your congregation and friends close at hand, I'm sure. You're not alone in the way a bullied queer kid usually is.

Fuck I wish I could say things like the above to these people and have them understand what I mean :)

Ken's Cell you get the picture

You seee, the difference is that you lot WANT to be persecuted (I hear fapping coming from your home office right now). It means that Gawd loves you the mostest. Gay children and adults do not. It means years of harrassment and poor self esteem.

You also really cannot compare somebody whose mother is Cher to somebody whose parents are people like you.

"If anybody has been demonized, marginalized, and turned into social pariahs, it is the pro-family movement."

You keep poking your nose in other people's business, trying to push your beliefs on them, and tell them how to live their lives, at some point they're going to be sick of your shit and want nothing more to do with you.

"But here we are, enjoying our lives, our families, our friends and our churches while nary a thought of suicide crosses our minds."

Maybe not your minds, but I can name at least 4 kids from my very Catholic, and very pro-family high school that attempted suicide, and 3 of them succeeded, including siblings of two good friends of mine. And I don't even want to talk about the alcoholism, drug abuse and teen promiscuity, among other things, that went on there.

And enough already with playing the fucking persecution card. You can't poke a sleeping bear and not expect to get your head bit off.

Really? But how odd. NOT.

The AFA exists to bring together hateful, homophobic, bigots - they therefore have a large social group that relelentlessly tells they are right and normal.

Voila! Lots of social support + obvious disrespect for the "different" and "outsiders" = smug, self-centered assholes who have a "purpose" and are therefore disinclined to kill themselves.

Add in that suicide is sin, and suffering is a priviledge, and I'll bet any possibly suicidal feelings are repressed so far that cutting off their big toe would eliminate them.

I suppose that hoping an asteroid lands right on top of their next national convention is kind of petty, huh? (sigh)

His name is Chaz and he is a man.

Just kills you that he has so much support, doesn't it? And you know what? I bet he can dance rings around your sorry ass, and is more of a gracious gentleman than you could ever hope to be.

In closing, I'd like to say, "Fuck you".

"We are accused without ceasing of being hateful, homophobic bigots."

That would be because you lot ARE hateful, homophobic bigots. Deny it all you want, but an asshole by any other name still stinks.

You wouldn't know persecution if it spit on you then proceeded to stomp on you. Move to Iran for a year, maybe then we can talk.

damn it, bryan! don't get our hopes up by talking about the afa killing itself!

in case this works... go kill yourself you hateful homophobic bigot! twice for good measure, and three times for personal enjoyement

He can demonstrate his claim by not harassing the LGBT community for a year or two. If suicide rates for LGBT individuals don't change much, he's right.

"But here we are, enjoying our lives, our families, our friends and our churches while nary a thought of suicide crosses our minds."

What thoughts come to your mind when one of your children comes out to you? Or do you make sure that their too intimidated by threats of hellfire to ever be that honest with you?

Ya think maybe this might be the problem?

We are accused without ceasing of being hateful, homophobic bigots.

That's because you're all hateful, homophobic bigots.

Our organizations are tagged as hate groups.

That's because any organization with the word "family" in the title is, without exception, a homophobic group of self-righteous busybodies who can't stand the thought of anyone enjoying any kind of sex without consequences or anyone different from them, and think it's their duty to remove any traces of sexual or religious nonconformity from society.

But here we are, enjoying our lives, our families, our friends and our churches while nary a thought of suicide crosses our minds.

Then you're obviously not being bullied and marginalized like you claim you are.

Cuz you are.

"If anybody has been demonized, marginalized, and turned into social pariahs, it is the pro-family movement."
Because no one likes an asshat and you don't know what being opprressed really is.

Aren't these the same people who actually devote a certain amount of energy to praying that "God will take them home" soon? That's suicidal in my book.

Also, why would your children even know that Chaz Bono was born female? Do these freaks actually think that someone will blurt out "Chaz used to be a girl" at every opportunity? Here's an idea; if you are really that afraid that the show will corrupt you and/or your kids, don't watch it. Go read a book about science. Oh, wait...

You are a bunch of homophobic assholes. STFU already! And on behalf of all my friends who contemplated and/or tried suicide as a result of being ACTUAL social pariahs, I say FUCK YOU ALL AND I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL YOU SICK MOTHERFUCKERS!!
I apologize for the capitol letters, just so damn pissed off at this shit!

Oh yeah. Just ask JonBenet Ramsey. [/hyper-sarcasm] Her parents enjoyed their lives vicariously through their daughter in those putrid 'child beauty contests'-cum-paedophiles conventions, so beloved of the Midwest & Bible Belt states; also their friends and church, while nary a thought of suicide crossed their minds. Oh, no. They had thoughts of murdering their own daughter.

First, there was the Nothing Family. Which begat the Wood Family. Which begat the Oil Lamp Family. Which begat the Candle Family. Which begat the Coal Family. Which begat the Steam Family. Which begat the Gas Family. Which begat the Electric Family.

As for the Nuclear Family, if that's the best you lot can come up with, then it's about time it was upgraded, nay, replaced by the Fusion* Family; ultimately by the Antimatter** Family. (Elton John & David Furnish, and their son, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John). [/smartarse]

Times change. As do technologies; the obsolete replaced by the new. Therefore attitudes must change too. And if that means forcibly, via legislation, so be it.

You are nowhere near what can be reasonably be called a pariah. You only pretend to be a pariah so your organization gets more money out of gullible people.
