Virginia Lawmakers Protest Pride Flag Outside Of Federal Reserve Bank!

virginia-lawmakers-protest-pride-flag-outside-of-federal-reserve-bank

Ugh! We're sorry, but what the EFF is wrong with people?!

Virginia delegates Robert Marshall and Riley E. Ingram have reportedly written letters of protest to Jeffrey Lacker, the president of the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank, because they're unhappy that they've put up a rainbow flag in honor of Gay Pride Month, and want it removed!

The bank originally chose put up the flag per the request of its LGBT group, Prism, and to reflect their commitment to diversity!

However, Marshall, Ingram, and the conservative members of the Virginia General Assembly, have struck back, and assert that homosexuality “adds significantly to illness, increases health costs, promotes venereal diseases, and worsens the population imbalance relating to the number of workers supporting the beneficiaries of America’s Social Security and Medicare programs.”

Marshall's letter continues:

“I do not believe that a celebration of ‘gay pride’ has anything to do with the mission of the Federal Reserve under the Federal Reserve Act passed by Congress. This is a celebration of a behavior that is still a class six felony in Virginia. How can the American people trust the judgement of the Federal Reserve as an institution when its spokesperson celebrates an attack on public morals?”

Unbelievable.

We think a better question might be, "How did such an ignorant man find his way into a position where he has a platform to spew that kind of hatred and nonsense?"

Absolutely deplorable! And so sad, especially in this day and age!

We commend the Federal Reserve Bank for their commitment to LGBT rights, and sincerely hope that they will not let this disgusting behavior affect or change their view on the matter!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

And to all of the aforementioned members of the Virginia General Assembly, as well as anyone else promoting hatred and intolerance…HAPPY PRIDE MONTH, bitches! We're not going ANYWHERE! Xoxo!

Progress!

It's coming! Whether you like it or not!

For the first time EVER, more than half of Americans think that it should be legal for gays and lesbians get married!

According to recent survey, support for gay marriage in the United States is at 53%, a HUGE jump from the 32% of support that it received in 2004!

While opposition has risen to more than 2-1 among Republicans and conservatives and 3-1 among evangelical white Protestants, support has grown dramatically among Catholics, political moderates, adults in their 30s and 40s, and in men!

AMAZING! As proud as we are, however, we still have a LONG way to go!

Keep fighting the good fight, everyone! EQUALITY IS COMING.

Ann Coulter Sinks To New Levels Of Vileness!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikAnn Coulter

ap100220114431jb.jpg

Well, we can't say we're surprised at how STOOPID and vile she is, but it doesn't make it any less offensive and despicable.

Ann Coulter was recently invited to speak about various foreign policy issues at Homocon, a summit held by the gay conservative group GOProud, over the weekend, and of course, she took the opportunity to aggressively and ignorantly slam gay marriage!

According to her speech, marriage "is not a civil right — you're not black," and the conservative gay rights movement should align with the anti-abortion movement, because "as soon as they find the gay gene, you know who's getting aborted."

According to Talking Points Memo's Megan Carpentier:

In fact, despite opening her speech with a joke about the difficulty of "coming out" as a fiscal conservative to one's parents — something she congratulated the attendees on — Coulter's speech to GOProud mystifyingly focused on social issues and not the fiscal and foreign policy issues that brought most of the attendees there. For instance, she told GOProud that the conservative gay rights movement ought to make common cause with the anti-abortion movement because, she said, "as soon as they find the gay gene, you know who's getting aborted." Coulter also made a forceful case against sex education in schools, accusing liberals of attempting to teach kindergartners about "fisting" (which garnered her a heckler, who shouted out "What's wrong with fisting?") and told the crowd that most parents didn't want their children learning about the "homosexual lifestyle" instead of reading and writing.

We really don't even want to address any of the bullshit this disgusting excuse for a human spouts out, because it doesn't deserve to be treated as anything but nonsense and trash - just like her.

Vile and completely shameful.

James Cameron Loses Cool On Glenn Beck And Right Wing Conservatives!

Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsFilm FlickersPolitik

ap100313115923jb.jpg

It's not like he's known to hold back his temper!!

James Cameron, who is promoting the DVD release of Avatar, was asked to respond to comments Glenn Beck made which likened director to the Anti-Christ!!

This apparently got ole' Jimmy in quite a stink, and he not only lashed out at the Fox News douchebag personality, but on everyone who does not believe in global warming!!

He says:

"Glenn Beck is a fucking asshole. I've met him. He called me the anti-Christ and not about Avatar. He hadn't even seen Avatar yet. I don't know if he has seen it. I think, you know what, he may or may not be an asshole, but he certainly is dangerous, and I'd love to have a dialogue with him. He's dangerous because his ideas are poisonous. I couldn't believe when he was on CNN. I thought, what happened to CNN? Who is this guy? Who is this madman? And then of course he wound up on Fox News, which is where he belongs, I guess.

They're not attacks. They're just people ranting away, lost in their little bubbles of reality, steeped in their own hatred, their own fear and hatred. That's where it all comes from. Let's just call it out. Let's have a public discussion. That's what movies are supposed to do, you know, you can have a mindless entertainment film that doesn't affect anybody. I wasn't interested in that. That's right, I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads. Anybody that is a global-warming denier at this point in time has got their head so deeply up their ass I'm not sure they could hear me.

Look, at this point I'm less interested in making money for the movie and more interested in saving the world that my children are going to inhabit. How about that? I mean look, I didn't make this movie with these strong environmental anti-war themes in it to make friends on the right, you know. They're not on my Christmas card list. It's not going to change my lifestyle at all if they don't talk to me. But you know they've got to live in this world too. And their children do as well, so they're going to have to be answerable to this at some point."

Wow!

He can be such a dick, but he certainly knows how to make a serious argument!!

What do U think?? Is Cameron's attitude justified??
