The United States of GayAmerica

A dear friend shared this website with me and I wanted to share it with you. According to the website this page was designed as a way Gay Americans could get out the vote to inform Americans about the inequalities faced by lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered people.

The website was inspired by "fundamentalist rhetoric" that is currently being used to "incite irrational fears" in the American public.

Comments like these:

“…if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery.”
— Senator Rick Santorum

“The gay culture? I’m trying to understand, what is that? … If it’s just about sex, then the culture must only be about sex.”
— Dr. Laura Schlessinger

“It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle, but that does not mean it is right. … Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.”
— Senator John Cornyn

Interesting right?

What I find fascinating about this issue is that hatemongering isn't against the gay culture in this country, it's against the Christian culture and anyone who believes in absolute truth and has morals. Christians, be informed, this agenda is real, evil and will do everything it can to destroy what you hold dear.

See for yourself -

I don't see "gay America" passing laws to stop your marriage.

You didn't ask my permission to get married, why do I need James Dobson's?

Interesting CalScott - Care to share with me your source that says that Dr. Dobson has required you to ask him for permission to marry?

I'll need a link, date and a specific quote of his if you don't mind. I'll be waiting...

This argument about a man marrying a turtle (or a pig or whatever) has really got to stop. It is just plain stupid and has nothing at all to do with two HUMANS in love.

"Dr." Dobson says it on a daily basis. He doesn't want anyone married in this country unless it meets his particular expectations.

You'd have to be pretty blind to not see this.

He wraps himself in the flag and the Bible (which is funny because he's not an ordained minister as far as I can see) and whips up his sheep to bombard anyone who doesn't fit his vision of a perfect family.

His silly P&G boycott is evidence of that.

So in other words Scott you can't give me the information I asked for. But I have a question for you - if Dobson's boycott is so "silly" then why does it bother you so much? Why not let it go and just live your life happy as can be without even thinking of it?

Stacy, if you are REALLY concerned about possible legallized marriages between humans and animals, the Federal Marriage Amendment won't stop it. The problem is, the FMA will ALLOW marriages between opposite sex humans and animals. There has been a proposed Federal Animals Relationships and Marriage (FARM) amendment that will prevent the marriage between person and animal. I'd suggest you get on board.

Now Cornyn did not actually make that statement. His staff submitted it to the media, but he was smart enough to avoid saying that to the Heritage Institute. You can find more by doing a google search for "cornyn box turtle".

Who says I'm worried about a P&G boycott? From my point of view, it was brilliant.

It basically gets Dobson press so that he can solicit donations from people who may agree with him but don't regularly listen to his tripe. I read about it on the AP wires, the LA Times, Reuters, etc.

I wouldn't know about it otherwise. It's not going to make any sort of financial impact on P&G but it give Dobson a lot of financial hope just from the publicity.

Anyone with a simple marketing degree can see what the heck Dobson and Tim Wildmon are up to.

It's win win for both P&G and the unholdy Dobson/Wildmon alliance.

Dobson/Wildmon get the donation publicity and P&G gets publicity as well.

Come on Stacy, you know what makes the world go round and it's name is JE$U$ and controversy.

The same could be said to you, Stacy. Why don't you just let gay people live their lives? Why are you so concerned with who wants to marry whom? what exactly is it that you hold so dear that will be destroyed by a loving couple proving their commitment?

Post a link to the FARM Amendment that you are referring to so I can actually see the legislation. Thanks.

FARM ammendment article.So I have a proposal: If the real, underlying issue in this debate is the fear that human beings will someday be allowed to marry animals — if Smoltz, Dailey and others are honestly and truly worried by that prospect — then let's address that issue head on. Let's pass a Federal Animals, Relationships and Marriage amendment to the U.S. Constitution that outlaws all interspecies marriages, period.

The FARM act would have two other important advantages over the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment. First, this is a deeply divided nation, and the last thing we need is something to get us even angrier at one another. What we need instead is something that will unite us, a cause that all of us can rally behind. And surely all Americans — with the notable exception of one very lonely guy out in Missouri — can get behind the FARM act and thus protect human-to-human marriage from this dire threat.

By championing the FARM act, President Bush could finally make good on his promise to be a uniter, not a divider. And John Kerry could use the amendment to demonstrate yet again that there are some issues too important to compromise on. As far as I know, he is now and has always been opposed to human-animal sex, even during the '60s.

Second, and more important, my proposal would address a glaring loophole that Dailey, Smoltz and other courageous crusaders against bestiality have apparently overlooked.

Pixel, you see, is a female pony, which means that technically speaking, she and Mark in Missouri have actually enjoyed a stable, heterosexual relationship. A ban on same-sex marriage would do nothing to prevent them joining in holy matrimony. Only the FARM act can save the republic from that travesty.

Thank you for posting this article. So it appears at this time that it really isn't an amendment or legislation up for a vote or consideration - it's just an idea. Interesting.

Why not push for it.... As the article shows, the FMA will not prevent that character Mark from marrying his female pony - only the FARM amendment will do that.
